Sanctuary Lakes Estate is an exclusive high end estate, with this in mind my wife and I decided to eat at the Sanctuary Lakes Hotel. Not the best decision we have made recently. It was buffet night...maybe every night is buffet night, I'm not sure. The food was basic home style stews and roasts and pasta and the usual fried... More

Today is the first time our family has gone out for Christmas Lunch and it was awful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the service was very good, but the food was boring and tasteless. There was more than enough food for everyone but it lacked flavour. The Pork, Beef and Turkey were all flavourless, and the salads... More

We took our young children to the buffet at sanctuary lakes hotel for dinner. The food is ok. Not fine Dining by any means, but for the price you pay, it is fabulous. Sadly the play area is not so good. The safety door at the back does not close, so children can run dangerously behind the slides and climbing... More

The food was just below average, we were done after one plate as it was cold and pretty tasteless. The thing that saves the restaurant was the friendly staff that were serving us

I booked more than a week in advance for a buffet Sunday lunch for 30 people. As I had 12 kids coming I had asked for the tables to be near the kids play area. When I arrived I was shocked that they had put us as far away from the play area as possible. When I questioned why we... More

Monday Buffet lunch @ Sanctuary Lakes Hotel was pleasant and good value at $18.90 per person. A selection of different foods - the beef roast was excellent and very tender with roasted vegetables. Three different sauces to choose from. Chicken Parmigiana and Asian dishes also on offer. Suggestion - just needed a better selection of condiments like more dressings, lemon... More

Very average food.. the saving grace is that it is a buffet, but other than that not much going for it.
