I didn't stay at the Lodge but had afternoon tea at the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge. It was a bit of a drama even just entering the lodge too, they wanted to ensure that I had a reservation (which I did have and I had names of hotel staff correspondents to prove it)
Disregarding that entrance episode however, the afternoon tea spread itself was a nice break from all the climbing and walking around at Machu Picchu and the tea (or coffee) and sandwiches and scones and other light bites, though not wide in range, was enough for an afternoon re-fuel.
There was no view of the Machu Picchu site from the restaurant though, so don't come to the afternoon tea restaurant expecting to see it.
I can't remember the exact amount as my partner paid the bill but it was an approx of just over US$20 per person.
