Hi overall we were not that impressed with Hanlan's quite disappointed with the cost which did not align with the quality of the food, limited choice with may be deliberate with the buffet available. The restaurant in our opinion could do with a revamp & customer service training.

Great place to wine and dine. Good selection in the buffet dinner menu. Desserts however were very sweet, especially the jelly.

A disappointment! We went for a dinner buffet and there were only around 10 tables occupied for the night. The buffet spread was insufficient and main courses such as the beef and fish were overcooked. Oysters were also slightly unfresh, and the cutlery and plates a little dirty. We only enjoyed the prawns, salad, and ice cream, as well as the excellent service :)

My two friends, husband and I found the food we had lovely and fresh, especially the prawns and also the way in which the food was replenished throughout the evening. The bright and professional attitude of the staff made our evening enjoyable. Thank you!

a very ordinary buffet and overall experience. - Cold Beef dish (should've been hot) - oysters dry and stuck to shell - biscuits (for cheese) were soft/stale I'm an Accor member, who enjoys the Sofitel buffet on a regular basis. The Novotel version does not come close.

Chef Daniel was very good as I need GF diet. The plastic chairs made the dining experience quite cheap.

Our reserved table no 52 was messed up and given to someone else, an apology was not good enough as it embarrassed me in front of my colleagues. The birthday cake came out while we were eating our main course which was embarrassing. The seafood was not fresh and I had to tell the waitress to refill the prawns as there were none there for quite some time. Waitresses were taking plates assuming we were finished when we weren't and then we got asked these unusual questions like are we the people that have a birthday party after we had already received the cake? Then another question asking us how do we all know each other? Didn't quite understand the relevance of these questions at all. There is a lot of work to be done to match the level of Novetel Sydney bay garden restaurant in Brighton which I must say was brilliant.

Thankfully I am a gold member so get 50% off as it wasn't a nice meal. Can't rate service as barely saw anyone except for the first round of drinks. No follow up so we didn't get any more. Buffet pretty average.

Food quality and service at Hanlan's (2 or 3 course selection) proved to be very good despite the limited selections in each category when opting for the menu selection in lieu of their buffet. Three entree, three main and three dessert options were sufficient for a few nights of consecutive dining without being repetitive. The sirloins were a standout, well cooked and tender. Staff on each of the three nights of dining in the restaurant were excellent. Attentive and friendly!

Advised when booking that it was a FULL SEAFOOD BUFFET Hardly a full buffet with prawns oysters and muscles The hot food was all Curry's that my kids don't eat. The buffet was disgraceful and definitely not worth the money. The old ledgends buffet was better

Seafood didn’t seem fresh & oysters should be washed before serving, not a very big selection of food, disappointed, however service was fantastic & good atmosphere.

Food was average at best. Oysters and prawns were not fresh,tasted very average, oysters had bits of shell and grit in some of them.The rest was hit and miss. Thank goodness for ACCOR card, would be horrified if had to pay $59. Service from the young lady who looked after us was outstanding, she was the shining light in an otherwise ordinary dining experience.

Oysters weren’t fresh . Prawns had been frozen to many times. Calling this a seafood buffet really let this night down.

We had a booking for 7pm which we thought would be fine but many items on the hot buffet were already running out... Fish, lamb, etc - they should keep the hot buffet replenished throughout service
