The Sovereign is a beautiful, well appointed resort that we will be using whenever we go to Cooktown. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment (2 children under 6) whilst my parents stayed in a resort room. The staff got us into rooms as close as possible even though we didn't specifically ask which was thoughtful. Both room types were...

Stayed for a couple of nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. Was very comfortable, clean and well appointed. Pool was beatiful after a long hot day in the Cooktown summer sun. Had a beatiful balcony to sit and watch the world go by. Lovely and quiet place in a central location. Worth a visit.

Beautifully modernised with enticing pool. Cooktown was so hot that it was nice to chill here and had a super dinner- huge steaks and excellent service. Very central for exploring the botanical garden and Cook Museum. Nice pool for a dip first thing

Cooktown is a fascinating site of Australian history. Now small, it retains much of its character, has most interesting places in town and within driving range. The sovereign resort Hotel is continuous with one of the oldest hotels, albeit much restored/rebuilt after cyclones and fires. It is very comfortable, a great breakfast (best fruit salad ever!) and is central to...

We thought we had made a booking but a glitch on our behalf meant we arrived to no room....no problem. Friendly front office staff found us a room which was great. 2nd floor overlooking the street. Well appointed but beware that the balcony is wrap around the building so inconsiderate neighbours having coffee and a smoke early in the morning...

I stayed overnight on a drive up from the Bloomfield Track. It was ok 2 air conditioners one in bedroom and lounge. Outdoor seats on a shared balcony overlooking the Main Street which was a problem since couple next door got up at 6am and were chatting loudly right outside. The pool was pretty good but 2 gates were locked...

We very much enjoyed our stay in a 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the main street. The apartments are quite dark and bedrooms relatively small but the living areas are spacious and comfortable. What makes this a great place to stay is the gorgeous free-form pool and the well-priced cafe meals, with a daily special. The upstairs restaurant is very pricey...
