Welcome to the Mac Forums.

Am I going to be able to use Snow Leopard Time Machine to bring everything across to the "new" macbook running Mountain Lion?
Yes. Here's how:

The first time you turn on your "new" refurbished MacBook Pro it should ask you if you wish to migrate data from another Mac. Respond yes and attach your Time Machine backup drive to the new machine. Follow the prompts and your old Snow Leopard data will be transferred to the new machine.

The new machine will be updated with your old account, data, settings, and applications. However, Mountain Lion will not be overwritten by Snow Leopard which will result in the new machine with all your old data but running Mountain Lion.

One bit of caution: Do not create an account on the new machine when you turn it on for the first time otherwise you'll wind up with two accounts and a mess. Migrate first and everything should work out OK.
