The saddest Christmas lunches were served to returned Australians stuck in hotel quarantine

While most Australians enjoy roast turkey and barbecue for Christmas lunch, those in hotel quarantine are served a rather depressing ticket.

There is no Christmas allowance for hundreds of Australians forced into 14-day isolation at the cost of $ 3,000 while celebrating alone.

Five-star hotels, desperately needed by guests, are used for accommodation, but few travelers seem to travel for food when it comes to food.

Many hotels have tried to brighten up the worst recorded Christmas with delicious festive dishes … but some have failed.

One man posted a picture of his baked lunch at Four Points in Melbourne, served in a styrofoam bowl consisting of ham with sauce, baked carrots, wedge wedges and a piece of bread

Another person at The Stamford Plaza Hotel in Adelaide was served a penny with an economical amount of bolognese sauce that barely covered the pasta and Greek salad.

One person in quarantine posted a photo of a salad sandwich wrapped in cling film, served on a cardboard plate along with a vegetable salad and fruit.  She also seems to have gotten Schweppes lemonade and a Christmas cracker to celebrate the occasion

People who were disappointed with their hotel meals posted pictures of them in quarantine groups on Facebook to vent their frustrations.

One guest posted a picture of his baked lunch served in a styrofoam bowl consisting of ham with sauce, baked carrots, wedge wedges and a piece of bread.

‘Christmas lunch,’ the headline wrote, followed by a sad face and said the Four Points Hotel in Melbourne ruined Christmas for everyone.

One person shared a picture of icing cookies and raw carrots served on a plate with a glass of wine – a dish that looked like it would be left out for Santa and his reindeer, not for lunch.

Another person at The Stamford Hotel in Adelaide was served a penny with an economical amount of bolognese sauce that barely covered the pasta and Greek salad.

Other not-so-festive food included mini quiches with sweet potatoes and onions, and the guest said it was easily the best part of a horrible meal.

One couple got a much nicer roast than honey glazed chicken, mustard, potato salad, pumpkin, peas and rolls.  But they said it didn't taste very good at all

One couple got a more appetizing roast than honey glazed chicken, mustard, potato salad, pumpkin, peas and rolls.

There was also a vegetarian version that fried cauliflower instead of chicken and two accompanying rice paper rolls with chicken.

However, the look can be misleading because they said the dish didn’t taste good at all.

One person was served bacon, sausage, hashbrown, mushrooms and two poached eggs at Park Royal in Darling Harbor, although it appears to have been breakfast rather than lunch.

Meanwhile, Sheraton Sydney, Central Park, at Four Points served Thai green curry with salmon, peas, cauliflower and zucchini.

‘Christmas Eve … come on,’ they said of the messy, greasy disaster on the plate.

Another person was served a vegetarian green curry in an unknown location.

Finally, the guest is served a Vietnamese duck noodle salad with ginger topping in a typical takeaway dish.

‘Delicious erasers for Christmas lunch. This one looks good, but fails on many fronts. Nine more days and Merry Christmas to all ‘, they wrote.

Those in quarantine are generally served food in disposable packaging, so staff can avoid unnecessary contact through utensils and cutlery.

The best Christmas meal arrived from the Marriott in Sydney Harbor, where one couple showed off their colorful three-course spread.

Both dishes came with green beans and Yorkshire pudding, while the vegetarian version was stuffed with paprika and turkey with meat.

They were also served appetizers of what seemed to be a sweet potato and prosciutto salad with lettuce, pine nuts and croutons.

They both came with a bun, a dessert cake and a glass of wine.

And finally, those staying at the Meriton Suites in Sydney mascot enjoyed a treat with Christmas pudding, cookies, nuts, mangoes, cherries, chocolate, iced tea, dried fruit and Christmas crackers.

The previous night, passengers trapped in quarantine shared their makeshift decorations on Christmas Eve.

One woman conjured up a Christmas masterpiece given the limited materials she had on hand.

She made a large tree wrapped in sequins using paper bags and some equipment found in hotel closets.

‘Merry Christmas to everyone and everyone,’ she announced.

‘It was so much fun for me to make this Christmas tree and I’m going to make Christmas feel a little more normal.

‘It’s amazing what I can do with ten days of paper bags and ironing boards.’
