Reviewed 28 January 2013

We booked the spa villa & were very suprised & delighted to see how roomy it was.The room itself was spotless We had our own shaded outdoor seating area. The indoor spa was a real treat & the kitchenette very useful. The motel pool was literally a few steps from the villa.
The bed was very comfortable & the area very quiet. The Motel is within walking distance to boutique shops, the Yungaburra pub & other eateries. We stayed when the famous Yungaburra markets were on, so parking wasn't a problem!. The owners were very friendly & helpful. Would definitely stay here again

Room Tip: Its worth paying the extra $10 for the spa villa

Convenient for Atherton area sightseeing. Rooms basic, but clean. Platypus viewing within walking distance. Nice change from the coast and area seems to be much quieter.
Good French bistro 10 mins walk.

we stayed three days, tripping around the tablelands and used the Curtain Fig Motel as our base. Dona and Colin were perfect hosts, the spa room we had, was spotlessly clean and serviced daily.... a small motel but with standards very high.... helpful information about the area. where to see the platypuses, near the bridge and along the track along the creek. where to eat. Curtain Fig Motel in Yungaburra is just the best place to stay and unwind. we would return and would highly recommend.

My teen son and I stayed at Curtain Fig Motel for 5 nights while my daughter participated in a hockey tournament in Atherton.
This motel was fantastic! Bright, clean and fresh with a heritage theme. Our rooms were cleaned, beds made, towels and crockery refreshed every day! It made our week very pleasant. We had a quiet outlook onto a lush garden with a lovely table and chairs out the front under verandah. Our host Colin was very helpful with tourist advice and made us feel very comfortable. It was definitely the nicest motel I have stayed in and will be recommending it to friends and family. A lovely modern pool at the front, and a short walk to cafes, Yungaburra Historic Hotel and general store and in the other direction, the creek where you can quietly view platypus at play, and a lovely Swiss Restaurant which I would highly recommend. Only a 15 minute drive into Atherton, and a good starting point for lots of other tourist attractions. The Curtain Fig Tree is a definite must see. A very enjoyable stay!

We stayed here on a tour of Oz and were met at the coach stop by the owner of The Curtain Fig Hotel who drove us back to the hotel and was very welcoming. The room was very clean and cool and very well equipped with comfortable beds. She advised us that we should try to see the platypus which live nearby.

Later that afternoon we took her advice and spent an absolutely magical hour or so "platypus watching" at the nearby creek. We sat quietly on a bench all alone just waiting for dusk when the platypus come out and although they never appeared just about everything else did making the most amazing din! -there were fire flies, moths and who knows what else. As we got up to leave, we suddenly realised that there were about 25 other people sitting behind us just quietly drinking it all in as well. It was totally brilliant experience and one of the highlights of our tour.

We then dined at the nearby Swiss House (I think) restaurant which was excellent.

Although we only stayed here for one night in order to see the Undarra Lava Tubes next day, we wished we had spent more time here and would love to return someday,

Thanks for the memory.

The Curtain Fig Motel is a great place to stay whilst travelling through the Tablelands. It was clean and the rooms are a decent size. They even provided a breakfast which we weren't expecting. This motel is good vale for money.
