However, Tumbarumba does have a definite advantage over many other new regions.  It is stunningly beautiful, especially in autumn. Tumbarumba also has excellent accommodation in the form of the Tumbarumba Motel  which has is to a high standard.  And as for the motels restaurant, The Elms, I can honestly sat that dinner there was one of the best meals ive had in ages, made all that much better by being such a surprise.  It’s a travel writers cliché, but the Elms is well worth the detour.
— Tim White - Financial Review
I have had very positive feedback from all involved – especially regarding the excellent meal enjoyed in the Elms Restaurant.  Please pass on my thanks to all your staff, who provided a first class service, and I look forward to returning again sometime down the track with my family.

I just want to thank you and the Tumbarumba Motel staff for everything you did for the TSM Board meeting and dinner last week.  We had a great stay at your lovely motel and were really impressed with your facilities ( not to mention the view).  The staff were very welcoming and friendly, and extremely tolerant when extra people joined us for dinner that hadn’t said they were coming. It was good particularly for me to experience your hospitality.  I manage the Cooma Vistitors Centre as well and its great to be able to say to people, when they ask “What accommodation is there in Tumbarumba”, Well I just stayed in a great motel there and I can tell you all about it.  The Food was wonderful too, and thankyou for ensuring there was chocolate for morning tea.

Its hard to find the words to adequately express our thanks for the wonderful 3 night stay with you.  From the moment of our arrival to the sad time of departure you looked after us superbly.  Great rooms, great food and what a great team.  That is quiet special.  We felt so privileged to meet such a lovely lot of people.
— Barbara Dreverman – Womens Pioneer Society
We are writing to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at the Motel last week.  I found the rooms well appointed and decorated, and the beds very comfortable.  The setting amongst the trees was outstanding.  The restaurant was outstanding, good atmosphere and excellent cuisine, with a good choice of local wines  Most of all we were very impressed by the staff, who were friendly, attentive and efficient. We will always have fond memories of our stay and intend to return, as well as recommending it to our friends.

I would like to commend you both and your staff on the high level of customer service that I experienced whilst recently using your conference facilities.  I have been facilitating conferences and conducting training courses in a range of industries for many years.  It was refreshing to experience good customer service. I found the customer support and assistance given was exemplary.  Again congratulations to your staff on achieving such high standards with their work.

Last night I stayed in THE TUMBARUMBA MOTEL as I often do when passing through this part of the world. The rooms are clean, modern, and the bed is just right for my 50 plus year old back! Being a light sleeper I often find I`m sticking my riding ear plugs in during the night at some motels but not so at THE TUMBARUMBA MOTEL. It was quiet and comfortable and I woke this morning charged, fresh and ready to go for another days  ride.

A big thank you Robyn for the lovely food and great waitressing by the girls at Frank’s 60th Birthday. Everyone commented on how great the food was, which all helped to make it a special occasion. Frank was truly impressed and totally surprised. It was fun to organise and everyone enjoyed the night immensely. Thanks Christine Minutello
