We were surprised by the standard in a remote place like Cooktown. There was nothing that i could say i was not impressed with. It all was so well presented from the restaurant/bar to the pool area and rooms. Most of all was the evening meal. I don't say this lightly but we had the steak and it was one... More

The place has been beautifully refurbished so the rooms are delightful. Staff are nice . We experienced several French backpackers who said they find everyone so friendly so you can the same in return

First time to Cooktown, this hotel appeared the best in the town. Historic area which was interesting. Booked room described as partial view of the river, was actually put in a downstairs room with zero view, except a tall fence surrounding the small courtyard. Upstairs restaurant closed due to private event - politicians +++ so security heavy. Great band in... More

Having stayed at the Sovereign on many previous occasions, I was very impressed with the new management. Rooms have been extremely tastefully renovated, but the greatest surprise was the new menu and staff at the Balcony Restaurant. Eating with a friend who has won many food and catering awards in Melbourne, we loved the menu. Quality was well above expectations... More

This was our first ever visit to Cooktown and we stopped at the sovereign for lunch because it looked nice. The service was good I had a fabulous salad and there was live music which was great ! I'd definitely eat here again.

We attended during their renovations but despite the early drilling going on, and the long walk to the room, it was still a great stay The new rooms are very professional and well presented, polished concrete is great!

Just stopped by for quick coffee and cake, both excellent and quick service. They had run out of cake, but we had a really nice date and ginger big cookie each. Coffee was smooth and great tasting.
