We have to say that we experienced a warm welcome by our hosts... Tara Guest House is a home from home.. This is not just a guest house, that description is too impersonal. During our stay Brom and Julian went out of their way to make us feel welcome into their home. They were so helpful in suggesting places to... More

Our 2 nights at Tara were pretty well spot on. Tara is a great house with excellent hosts, brilliant breakfasts, interesting guests and a charming dog all in a top location. A seamless airport pick-up set the tone, followed by a guided tour of local restaurants on the way back. We can vouch for a couple of the recommendations which... More

We had the opportunity to experience Julian, Brom and Oscar's loving and warm hospitality towards the end of our Australia trip. And it only added to our sense of longing for Australia! The best thing about the place is the hosts themselves. It is rare to find such genuine warmth these days. Right from our first interaction on mail, it... More

Brom, Julian and Oscar were all absolutely lovely. From Julian's chauffeur service to Broms orientation and in depth knowledge of the local area, it all made my stay that much better. I can confirm that the breakfasts are indeed a delight and the best I have ever eaten anywhere, and that includes a number of 5 star hotels and resorts!... More

Wonderful hosts, beautiful rooms, full bookcases, amazing breakfasts, and an Oscar! What's not to love? Huge thanks to Brom and Julian for having us, we're already looking forward to being repeat offenders!

Tara guest house: well it really is every bit as good as it's cracked up to be - as relaxed as home but a lot more fun and the bonus is the VERY fine breakfasts. It’s a big airy old colonial house, conducive to social interaction. Interesting owners, interesting art, interesting dog, interesting fellow guests. Newtown was a pleasant surprise;... More

I had the true pleasure of being a guest at Tara for three nights in mid-February; this place is a haven for those who want to see Sydney beyond the obvious, and to experience the Inner West, a section of the city that is vibrant with a wonderful arts and dining scene. Close to the city, with train and bus... More

Quite wonderful welcome. Airy house with lovely art, brilliant food, and terrific hosts Julian, Brom, and awesomely well-behaved border collie Oscar. It was all we could do to tear ourselves away from Tara to visit Sydney since we felt so much at home (but better than home ...). Breakfast is a ceremony of conversation and friendship ... so plan at... More

TARA house was lovely. Our 2 year old called it 'Brom and Julian's castle’. Brom and Julian went above and beyond to ensure we were happy from the beginning of our stay. With a private pick up from the airport. I felt like we were staying with family. The rooms are filled with beautiful furniture, art & bits and pieces.... More
