On a recent 'girls week-end', my friend, her 3yr old son and myself stayed at the quaint little Tall Trees Motel, located at the bottom of Eagle Heights on Mount Tamborine.
Perfect for as an over-nighter, the motel was very clean, neat, comfortable and central to everything. Right next door was a pub, next door to that was a Pizza place and an Ice Cream shop, across the road a fantastic Indian restaurant (where we had a fantastic meal!). 5mins walk up the hill was 'touristville' Eagle Heights with its fabulous art galleries, shops, winery cellar doors and the cheese factory. Directly across the road was a bush walk that took you to the very pretty Curtis Falls.
This was a lovely motel, as I said, very clean - in fact the bathroom was one of the cleanest bathrooms I'd ever seen in a motel. The 'kitchen' was well stocked with tea/coffee, cereals, bread for toast and a selection of jams and butter.
If looking for something in a good price range for just one night, this place is perfect. If wanting something romantic, indulgent or for longer then better off with one of the many B&B's on the mountain, but otherwise, Tall Trees fits the bill for an overnight, backpacker or even a family budget.
