Transport

Do you have a shuttle bus from the airport?

Our business is beds, not buses – but as we’re located just 12km from the airport, getting to us is nice and easy. Your best options are:

Taxi: A taxi from the airport costs about $43 and will take around 20 minutes door to door.

Public transport: Hop on the air train and ride all the way through to Roma Street Station. At Roma Street, jump on the number 330 bus to Bracken Ridge, getting off at Butt Street, just after Marchant park. Look both ways before crossing the road, then walk back about 150 metres to find us at number 262 Murphy Road. It’ll take around 75 minutes and will cost you approximately $24 each.

Location

I won’t have a car when I stay – are you close to public transport?

Yes indeed – the bus stop is just up the road (100 metres to be precise). If you’re keen to stretch your legs, the train station is 2km away. If you’re not sure which bus or train to catch, let us know and we’ll point you in the right direction.

Are there any restaurants nearby?

Yes, you’ll have your pick of dozens of restaurants and bars within a few kilometres. We’ve listed some of the closest ones here.

Rooms

Are your rooms quiet?

As we’re located on quite a busy road there is some traffic noise, particularly in the rooms at the front of the house. However, if you’d like your stay to be particularly hush-hush, our Standard room and Deluxe Queen (complete with larger en suite) are located at the rear of the house and are perfect for a peaceful stay.

Can I stay on the ground floor?

Unfortunately not, that’s where we sleep! Our four guest rooms are located on the upper floor and you’ll need to climb the stairs to get to them. For that reason, if you’re in a wheelchair or have difficulty negotiating stairs, we’re not the right choice for you.

What kind of beds do you have?

Each of our four rooms comes with a super comfy queen sized bed.

Can I have a cot or fold out bed in my room?

As we cater to travelers 18 years and over, cots and fold out beds are not available.

Will I have my own bathroom?

Yes – we want you to have the most comfortable stay possible, so all our rooms have a private en suite with shower, hand basin and toilet.

Check in, check out and facilities

What time is check in and check out?

You can check in any time after 2pm and check out is before 10am.

Early check in is available if your room was not occupied the night before. You’ll need to contact us the day before your arrival to confirm whether early check in is possible.

And don’t feel like you have to rush off once you’ve checked out. If you have time to spare before heading back to the airport, we have two guest lounge areas you’re welcome to use.

Can I check in late?

Yes – when we confirm your booking via email we’ll include the super-secret code for our key safe. Crack it open when you arrive and you’ll find directions on how to enter the house and find your room.

What are the reception hours?

As we live on the premises, we’re available for whatever you need from 6.30am to 10pm.

Do you have Wi-Fi?

Absolutely – Wi-Fi access is free for all guests and we’ll provide you with a password on your arrival.

Can I park my car off the street?

Yes, we have free off-street parking for up to four cars.

I’ve heard amazing things about your breakfast – do you offer a vegetarian option?

No one leaves Murphy’s hungry, and we cater for meat eaters and non-meat eaters alike. Our vegetarian brekkie includes fresh fruit, grilled mushrooms, tomatoes, hash browns and baked beans.
