I travelled up the Bloomfield track with family & friend
The rooms I had booked were not available due to some urgent maintenance issue.. but Reception & Rachael resolved & upgraded which was even better..
Spot on location, facilities & refreshing superb pool
Don’t miss it if you travel this way
Warm friendly & efficient staff
And yes this was 4th visit but definitely not the last
Thank Palmcovetone

Great place to stay staff friendly and room was clean and air cons were good...bed could have been updated as we felt like we were rolling into middle so not so comfy.....convenient to most walkable sightseeing places on waterfront....pool looked amazing and the restaurant was lovely good food.

Stayed in family/apartment accommodation which was clean and very serviceable. It had two bedrooms and a separate lounge/dining area. All rooms had individual air conditioning which were icy cold. The bathroom had a rain shower and quality toiletries. The pool was lagoon style with ample lounge chairs. We have stayed in various room types at this resort and it has never disappointed. Will always stay here when in Cooktown. 😊

Roomy and cool. Went as a group and the fish was served cold. Had it returned to the kitchen and warmed up.
The staff do not understand the drinks and cuisine they are serving coming from a different background.
The room was great and pool looked inviting. Good breakfast.

After spending five days on a 47 foot boat, chasing trophy size marlin in very rough waters, Sovereign Resort is like a waterhole in the desert. They sent a van down to Fishermans Wharf to pick me up. The front desk closes at 7 pm, but the bar and restaurant stay open later. Nice, spacious, air-conditioned, with no bugs, snakes, lizards, or bats. Good beds. Colorful crowd of fishermen and locals to join for drinks and dinner. Good basic Aussie version of steaks, chops, and seafood. Good portions, good value.The lamb was a treat. They advertise a shuttle, but there is also a $16 CHARGE.
If I am ever in Cooktown again, I'll look forward to staying at the Sovereign.
Thank lbmccown

We stayed in an upstairs room with access via steps. I would suggest you ring the resort regarding your specific request. Good choice, though. hopefully they can accommodate you.
