The resort has been recently landscaped and presents well. Unfortunately the restaurant (one of the reasons to stay there) was closed for covid or renovations which meant good food was hard to get in Cooktown as many other places are also closed.

The building/ swimming pool area was lovely however the main restaurant was closed. We couldn’t get into the bar/ restaurant because it was booked out! When we did eat breakfast at this restaurant the service was poor. We ordered cappuccinos that didn’t arrive. When at the end of our meal we asked why we were told there was no milk!

Was expecting more for the price. Toilet was leaking so just kept filling. Pool was closed in the early evening when the girls went to have a swim. Only had one restaurant open that never served breakfast. Cooktown was beautiful worth the drive but Town was too small not to serve breakfast to hotel guests. Hotel guest have to park on the street as the hotel carpark was a dumping ground for things for hotel.
