Stayed at the Best Western Sanctuary for business trip and ordered room service each night and was absolutely treated to some culinary delights! Definitely recommend the T-bone local steak cooked to perfection with roast potatoes and Broccolini also cooked to perfection. Best room service food...I’ve ever had.More

Service first class, selection of wine perfect. Menu excellent I chose the Wague steak, cooked to perfection with crispy roasted garlic spuds a must try. Next time in Tamworth, this is where I will stay. First class all the way

On arrival to restaurant hard to miss moustached man entering staff only section having a go at kitchen and floor waitstaff... His actions were unnecessary and started our night feeling uncomfortable and sorry for the young woman serving us, how embarrassing for her! On the...positive side the remainder of the dinner was uneventful, food was delicious and the steak cooked to perfection (500 day Wagyu).More

We came from Sydney to stay the weekend and had dinner and we were so impressed on how delicious the food was. The staff and owner were very friendly, attentive and went over the menu to explained some of the dishes which was really nice...as it was our first time there. The food was so amazing and delivered a traditional Italian meal with heaps of flavour. The steak I ordered was cooked to perfection! We will definitely return to try more dishes.More

After experiencing a few delightful evenings dining at this Local Restaurant during Covid19, I found our recent visit was a disappointment, due to fact that they catered for twice as many diners & failed to cope with the increased patronage. Just in a matter of...a few months it was like attending a complete different venue which I would be reluctant to visit again.More

Having made a reservation, my partner and I arrived on time. It was a warm summer evening and we walked into a stuffy restaurant where the air conditioning fan was turned down...and this was the beginning to my disappointing experience. The waitress was accommodating to...my enquiry if the air conditioning was actually working by making some adjustments but the condescending remark made by the owner to myself - "Feeling the heat Dear" did not improve my impression of the venue. We waited 45 minutes without a drinks order nor a meal order being taken. So we walked out. No one tried to intervene as to why we were leaving, nor did I receive a phone call (as they did have my contact number as I had made a reservation) to investigate why we had left without placing an order.More
