Great accomodation close to the water. Pool was well used and easy access to walking around town. Food was amazing. Friendly and accommodating staff. Beaut place to chill out and have a few beers on the verandah.

We had a nice room on the first floor overlooking the main street, although the arrangements for sitting outside the room were unusual in that there were no dividers, just one long corridor (the relevance of this will become clear later). The first night was fine, then on the second night (New Year's Eve) couples and families began to arrive,... More

Great service, so friendly which was welcome after a long day with a six month old!! Prices are good, place is clean, the view over the main street is great to just sit back and relax with - overall just a great vibe, will definitely be back.

Cooktown in the far north of Queensland is only a small town of about 2500 people. The hotel caters for the many visitors to this historic site. Good hotel in the 3.5- 4 star category. The rooms are large and do the job, not luxurious but I wouldn't really expect it to be. The lady on reception was very helpful... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in November, and enjoyed every minute of this part of Far North Queensland. The hotel room was good, although traffic noise was unpleasant - especially early morning. Pool was great - although with only 4 sun loungers, I don't know what would happen in a busy period. Restaurant excellent and the café/bar also. We... More

Great facilities, staff and pool, if you want to explore Cooktown this is a fantastic place to base yourself and enjoy the incredible history this town has to offer. Visit the lookout, botanic gardens,captain cook museum, lions den hotel and enjoy the company of the locals - great for a few nights away.

I stayed at the Sovereign Resort Hotel for three nights. I thoroughly enjoyed the stay, everything about the hotel was good, the rooms, the meals, the surroundings, the location in Cooktown. I found it a very relaxing layback part of the world, where you could spend many days there to relax. At night before dinner we would watch the magnificient... More

This resort is a great escape in the tropics of North Queensland, The meals in the cafe are great and the specials $15 for a 400g T bone on Tuesday's is well worth the visit.

The accommodation standard excellent, however the food and food service is average at best. Breakfast area has lovely views but the food is uninspiring. Sad really because there is a real mismatch in quality between the rooms/facilities and the good.
