Our son was working in Cooktown for a short period, so the rest of the family (3 adults) were looking for 2 bedroom & 2 bathrooms in town. Our son had a quick inspection of the Seaview and The Sovereign, and recommended this place. We were in unit 105 - ground floor on the main street. Both bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, kitchen is minimal with microwave, bar fridge, toaster, kettle and sink. The ground floor units have complete screens around each unit, so private from the street and other units. The unit was very clean with only the occasional tiny spider on the ceiling, no mould, so full marks to the cleaners. Not sure how old the hotel is, but everything seemed reasonably new. Floors are polished concrete (at least in the ground floor units), which make a lot of sense in the tropics.
Nice resort style pool, not huge, but more than adequate. There's a gas BBQ at the pool which we used a few times.
Minor things to note -
While we were there in late Jan/early Feb, there were some renovations going on in the hotel section next door. However this didn't cause us any issues.
Car parking is mainly on the street in front of the units. There is a bit of off street parking, but the parks near the street units is fairly tight and not worth the effort if you have a largish car.
If you need 2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms, I'd say these are a good choice.
