“Surprising Oasis”
Reviewed 7 June 2011

After a long trip up to Cooktown, the hotel was a welcome surprise. We had expected something far less comfortable and modern; only because of the remoteness of the town. We took a 2 bedroom apartment upstairs overlooking the main street. Fantastic location and very comfortable. The restaurant was excellent, and another pleasant surprise.

The drive to Cooktown is quite a long way from the nearest big city but well worth a visit. The steady breeze here makes tempertures in North Queensland more bearable. A 2 or 3 night stay in the Cooktown is sufficient to see all the sights in the area

On arrival, we were given a warm welcome by the receptionist and check in was a very speedy process. The hotel did not appear to have many guests and it was very quiet. The room was clean and adequate. We enjoyed our cooling off time in the pool at the end of the day. As it was quiet, we had the pool to ourselves. We didn't eat at the hotel but can thoroughly recommend the Bowls Club for an evening meal.

Great spot - Room for improvement. We stayed in a 2 bedroom "apartment" with access to large terrace (shared by two other apartments - which was quite nice because we talked to our neigbours) - good sized living area - bathroom and toilet had been recently upgraded (top marks for the style) - HOWEVER - no extra fans im loo, second bedroom was small - laike a prison and it wasw NOT and apartment!! plent of room for a stove, big fridge, washing machione and dryer - but it had none of these - overpriced and misrepresented - great potential

We were disappointed with this hotel as it lacked warmth. The room was basic and we didn't enjoy a good sleep as it was noisy outside, the bed was hard and cramped and the airconditioner and fan were both noisy. The bathroom is dark. we ate lunch in the Pub and the salad was soggy and we ate dinner upstairs in the restaurant and it was just average. the service at the restaurant was slow and not very professional. I wanted to stay an extra night in Cooktown , so had a look at the Seaview Motel and the deluxe rooms there were superior as well as the better view and quieter position ( and $20 less a night). the 1770 restaurant is a better place to eat.
Nice pool and garden
