It's not often these days you find a motel dining room with five-star cuisine ... but this is one; Lobby is located within the Sanctuary Inn Motel. We had steak and duck, and both were created to a superlative standard; my wife is the fussiest steak consumer known ... and her only complaint was the steak was too big! I'm... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal and great wine and received good service. We commend Belinda in particular for going beyond the call of duty.

Food was divine. Great choice and extensive wine list. Staff were really great as well. I was dining alone on a business trip, but felt very welcome and comfortable

Had an intimate birthday dinner here on a cold winters night. Drinks by the fire followed by the best three course meal available in Tamworth. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed a lovely night at this restaurant. We were warmly greeted and given a lovely window seat in a little nook (not that the view is fantastic, but it was nice to look out the window and see the world go by). It was a cold night during the week so was not busy, so we really appreciated the... More

For the first time in my life our small family had Christmas lunch at a restaurant. The Lobby Restaurant put on a magnificent meal and the four of us thoroughly enjoyed it. Best of all no slaving over a hot stove on a hot December day....and no washing up.

We stayed and tried the nice course offer. All the good was great. Only problem was we ended up just tasting the last three courses as we couldn't fit any more in. Worked out to be very good value.

Stayed at the Best Western Sanctuary Inn for 1 night in a business trip. The Lobby restaurant was recommended by a local. Nice setting, didn't feel awkward even though I was on my own. I had the Angus steak which was amazing. The staff were very attentive and I had a lovely meal followed by coffee in the lounge area.... More

We had a couple of meals here whilst on business and found the food to be fantastic. The duck was my highlight,, well cooked and plenty of flavour, although my colleagues found all the desserts to be their favourite dishes both nights. Well worth a visit

I'm a guest at Best West Sanctuary Motel, here for 3 nights and thought I would give their restaurant a go as it has good reviews on Trip Advisor. Worst decision ever. Dinner restaurant last night. $17 for entree-1 piece Calamari, 2 & 1/2 sections of an orange, a bit of rocket. Mains - $36 Beef Fillet, lobster butter on... More
