Set around a tropical garden, which includes a swimming pool, and located in Cooktown's main street, the Sovereign Resort Hotel had all we needed during our recent three night stay. We chose a Deluxe room that, although a bit more expensive, was spacious with separate sleeping and living areas and a place to sit on the balcony. The room was... More

I stayed for a week whilst doing a course in town. Service was second to none. I was dropped at the training centre each day by the courtesy bus. Food at the restaurant was of a high standard. Everything I asked for was not a problem and even after I checked out, I was given a room for two hours... More

A wonderful place to stay in Cooktown. Very friendly and attentive staff, excellent food and top accommodation. Right in the middle of town so it's close to everything. The staff is a wonderful mix of local and overseas. Rooms are spacious and well maintained. Couldn't fault the place.

Clean rooms. Pool was beautiful. It's not fancy, but the bathroom was modern, and it was comfortable for a short stay. Being directly opposite the RSL and Bowling clubs was a bonus. We didn't eat any meals in the restaurant- prices were high compared to other options in town. Staff were helpful and friendly. Be warned- no lifts, so if... More

Very nice rooms and good bathrooms with large benches, good cupboard space but only 6 coat hangers so asked for more. Bed firm but OK. Sadly our balcony was very small (Room 209) with only 1 opening door. For the same price other rooms have much better views over the pool and lovely double balconies and doors. We'd unpacked before... More

My wife and I had room 218, overlooking the sensational pool from a good sized balcony. Good facilities generally - bed, pillows, shower but lack of couch or chairs inside is a drawback. We were encouraged to bring outside furniture in but it is rattan chairs only. Eventually we were given a spare chair. Fridge full of stuff you don't... More

I have to say the roast dinner served here was the worst I've ever tried to eat, dry meat, tiniest amount of gravy, undercooked hard potatoes and cold. They weren't busy at all, so can't be blamed on being under pressure. A smile from the staff might have made up for it, but no, as cold as the meal

The Sovereign is the place to stay. A historic hotel. We had a great room, overlooking the pool. Quiet at night. Friendly service. In fact we should have stayed longer and if we go back to Cooktown, we'll definitely stay again.

We booked the double bedroom apartment, it was clean and adequately furnished, but with disappointing details: toilet lock was too stiff for my 80 year old Mother to work, the only bathroom in the apartment had an overhead shower with a poor flow rate and it flooded most of the floor, fortunately no one slipped, power sockets were inadequate and...

During our stay in far North Queensland we had a couple of lunches at The Sovereign Hotel when we were in Cooktown to replenish supplies. The meals were great and the beer nice and cold. The menu is fairly varied and reasonably priced.
