“Breath of Fresh Air”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

What a fantastic place this is! The location is truly special, with phenomenal views from each of the rooms but there are probably any number of places to stay in the vicinity which can boast good views. What lifts Moments above the competition is the truly exceptional customer service provided by Tamara and her team. Our welcome was exemplary and we had hardly carried bags in before being offered a glass of bubbly and a snack. The rooms are quirky, comfortable and spotless. Lastly, the cooked breakfast was amazing; tasty & virtuous. Perfect to set us up for a day of walking.

Thank you very much for your excellent review! It is a joy to read that you appreciated the whole “moments experience”: great location, mountain views, comfort, bushwalks at the doorstep and exceptional customer service. It was our pleasure to host you, and we wish you all the very best, hoping to see you again sometime!

Alright hikers... If you are interested in treating yourself after an awesome hike on the National Pass, stay at Moments. The house manager is the sweetest person you have ever met from Austria (not Germany!) She keeps the place spotless, tidy, and welcoming. The grounds and views from every room are phenomenal. After a long hike, it was great to come back to a bottle of wine, update myself on sports, and look at the stunning vistas before me.

Hiking: It is right next to the national forest entrance (literally)! I was lucky. I had no idea this was the case. You could spend a couple days here with the miles or kilometers of hikes available. Empress Falls is a 20 minute trek... National pass is 2 hrs... Then you arrive at Wentworth Falls. Seriously unbelievable! It rivals the Grand Canyon and I am from Arizona.

Everything about this boutique hotel is so lovely. From the reception ---flute of bubbles and a wee snack to the garden to the amenities in the room and lastly to that breathtaking view! Our room was spotless and every day was serviced brilliantly. The little extras like the choccies and the yummy shortbreads for afternoon tea were so appreciated as was the pre-dinner drinks. You are even given blankets for your balcony.

Room Tip: Do take the time to enjoy drinks on your private balcony.

We stayed in the Vera spa suite, and it was everything we were looking for. Tranquil with only the sound of birds and insects outside, beautifully appointed room with a view from the veranda to match. On arrival we were offered a glass of champagne and some nimbles on the veranda which was a nice touch. It was so comfortable we could have stayed in the suite all day, but thankfully we took advantage of some of the bush walks just a few metres from the property. There's so many to choose from. In the evening we lit the fire, and made the most of the in room spa which is huge with pleanty of room for two. All in all it was a wonderful stay, and we'll be back for sure.

Only just back from our perfect stay at "moments" and I couldn't wait to tell everyone about it!
Two nights just wasn't enough for this hidden gem. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left every desire was catered for. Tamara couldn't do enough for us and is a font of knowledge in regards to the local area. The room was very comfortable and extremely cosy. It was difficult leaving that amazing view of the valley ! A great spa bath was just what we needed after a day of hiking and there are some excellent restaurants a stones throw away...We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are excellent

We only stayed here for one night and wished we could have stayed longer. After a long day of walking, we were footsore and tired when we checked in. We were offered a glass of champagne on arrival which was a lovely touch to get you settled in. Our suite was well appointed with a great sized spa, a fireplace added to the ambience and a balcony with table and chairs to enjoy the beautiful view. Lap blankets were a nice touch for the cool evenings. Continental breakfast was supplied in room. The common lounge room was a comfy place to enjoy a port or two as well. We would definitely love to stay again next time we visit. It was the small touches that made our stay truly worthwhile.

Room Tip: We stayed in Vera Spa Suite which had a great size spa. Very comfortable.
