Seaview provides a wonderful overview of the Endeavour River Estuary, and offers many types of accom. This time we stayed in a 2 bedroom upstairs/downstairs apartment. It was very well equipped, and the beds were comfortable. Off street parking is somewhat restricted.

Room 1 was clean and adequate for a one night stay. No fly screens on most windows. Built many years ago and it shows. In wall noisy air cond that struggles to achieve much. The cooked breakfast was ok. Very central but then Cooktown is small.
