we stayed 2 nights in June, found the room to be comfortable with a large bathroom. The room overlooked the street which was quite noisey late at night. Wifi was not good in the room could get a good signal in bathroom. Went to restaurant first night and the pub meal the next night as there was a motorbike convention... More

Good quality hotel, very large bedroom with comfy furniture . It was very hot when we visited and not having AC made the nights uncomfortable! It was very noisy on the street outside so sleep was often broken. Staff in the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful! Food and drink excellent . Will return again to be sure.

Good Morning from all in Murphys, Thank you for your wonderful recent review. I am delighted to hear you had such a wonderful experience with us. We have been experiencing a heatwave so temperatures have been above average but there are fans available in every room. I am looking forward to seeing you again in the not too distant future....

We stayed at Murphy's for two nights last week. We happened to arrive in town at the tail end of a music festival and our GPS was having trouble finding the property so we ended up driving through town three times. Once we found it, we realized there was no parking specifically for the hotel. We called them and they... More

Stopped at this hotel for two nights in June,2014. The room had three beds lined up in a row with very little room to walk. It was very warm so we asked for a fan, which they did provide. The bathroom was extremely small with only a little shower stall to bathe. The lighting in the room was very dim.... More

We stayed here for three nights for a family get together. Excellent location and parking was easy to find within waking distance of the guest house. The rooms were spotless and although no air con, each room had a fan. Rooms cleaned daily and good in the bar. Staff very friendly, we will definitely stay here again.

this is a small hotel above a very nice pub. It is right in the middle of the town so very convenient. The rooms were clean and the breakfast very good. We asked for a front room to be able to see the street action. It was quiet even though there was a bikie festival on at the time.

Great value for money with clean, quiet rooms tucked above and behind a great pub. The beds were comfortable and the Wifi worked well. The full Irish breakfast was above average. I would recommend this place to family and friends.
