“Spacious rooms with everything”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

The rooms were very large with a queen size bed, table and 2 chairs near the large window. Electric jug with tea and coffee was available as was a toaster. The bathroom supplied shampoo's etc in pump dispensers. I found it a bit expensive for a country motel at $125 per night

My group of 43 and I spent the most wonderful weekend at the Tumbarumba Motel, the staff and owner Robyn were absolutely fantastic. The meals were top class, thank you again Robyn, we will definitely see you again!

This is a motel pure and simple. Not much character but We had a newly refurbished room which had everything we wanted in a motel room: spotlessly clean, a comfortable bed, toaster and jug, good TV and a hot shower. AND it is just off the road so quiet. I'd happily stay again.

My husband and self spent two quiet nights here. Room spacious and pleasant view from rooms the reception side of Motel. Beds and TV need updating.We weren't in the refurbished rooms. Otherwise economical. Walk into town.
Had a meal once at the Elms restaurant with pleasant ambiance-meal adequate but only 3 star considering the cost.My husband's salad swimming in dressing and no potato with his chicken.Only two choices of dessert and we were told twenty minute wait for that (because too many people came in and only one waitress) .The coffee and hot chocolate was warm , not hot.We left without dessert.The waitress was pleasant.

Room Tip: ask for a refurbished room and check out the menu

It's a shame there isn't a rating between average and very good as this motel was good but not outstanding. Our room was large as was the bathroom. The beds were comfortable and it was quiet. There was a pleasant view of trees in full leaf from the large window. Tumbarumba is beautiful but there isn't really anywhere to sit outside at this motel to enjoy the sunshine unless you trek over to the park opposite which is further than you might think and doesn't have much seating (it was too wet to sit on the grass when we were there). With such a beautiful setting, this motel would be greatly improved by some outside seating areas. After all, the outdoors is what people come to the mountains for.

Hi LizfromNSW,

Thanks for staying with us here at our motel in Tumbarumba. Your feedback was useful and you've given us the idea to look at putting some seats out on the grass in the parkland at the front of the restaurant. We are also considering putting cushions on the seats at the BBQ area. Right now it's a beautiful summer day and finally stopped raining after your visit in December last year. Let us know when you are coming through town next and we'd love to see you back.

Regards,
Robyn and Chris

We had a 2 night stay in this little town, and treated ourselves to a renovated room. These rooms are very well presented and are clean and very appealing. The bathroom is huge with a walk in shower which would suit the disabled and also the elderly.
The restaurant was another highlight, we had some beautiful food there and the service was fantastic.
Can highly recommend the renovated rooms (not sure what the other rooms are like) and the restaurant, and will definitely return when I go to Tumbarumba again.

We had a lower floor room that had jut been refurbished - it still smelt of paint and new carpets - but opening the windows helped. Outlook was nice - lots of trees. Close to the main street. Comfy bed and very quiet. Reasonable value for a small country town motel. Probably the best choice but much dearer than the Club Motel opposite the Bowling Club.
Have written a seperate review for the Elms restaurant which was ridiculously over priced :(

Hi MickiAustralia,

Thank you for review of our Motel and Restaurant. It is a real shame that you did not enjoy our Elms Restaurant experience. We have a wide variety of meals ranging at many different prices included a chef's special starting at $18.50 which is available every night. We have taken your opinion into consideration and we are now implementing new changes to our menu to suit a more budget orientated customer.

We are thrilled that you had an enjoyable stay in the newly renovated rooms and hope that you will return to find some changes being made for the better.

Thank you,
Robyn and Chris Jones
