A 31-year-old man has been arrested after his parents were found dead in a Queensland bed and breakfast.

Queensland police officers were called to a property in Joyner about 2 pm on Sunday where they discovered the bodies of Frank and Loris Puglia.

Queensland man Chris Puglia is understood to be the couple's son and was arrested hours later in Sydney.

He was taken to Hornsby Police Station and charged by virtue of a Queensland arrest warrant for two counts of murder and unlawful use of a motor vehicle.

The car was also seized and will undergo forensic examination.
