The Sovereign Resort Hotel
The Sovereign has been a Cooktown landmark since 1874 – and for some years in the town’s not so long ago wild days, it was referred to as the half sovereign as a result of cyclone damage. These days it’s a high-quality hotel in an old colonial-style building set in landscaped gardens, offering two-bedroom apartments or resort-style units. Facilities include an à la carte restaurant and cafe bar, and seafood is naturally a specialty of the house.
