Seriously, this is a wonderfully special place: we feel so incredibly grateful to both Brom and Julian - they made our stay in Sydney an utter delight. The house itself is a beautiful restored mansion, separated into spacious, tastefully decorated, comfortable rooms full of amazing artwork. We were spoilt by Brom & Julian's mouthwatering meals and inspired by the conversations... More

We arrived at Tara having spent eight nights in 4* or 5* hotels and what a delightful find. Tara Guest House, and its owners, have character, unlike the hotels which are boringly similar. We were met at the airport by Julian, which was much appreciated. Tara's rooms are spacious, very comfortable and anything we needed was speedily provided. Julian and... More

Having just spent 4 nights at Tara, we encourage anyone travelling to Sydney to take the opportunity to stay here : interesting and colourful area, 20 minutes max by bus into circular quay and lots of quirky shops and tasty eating places within a 10 minute walk. The house is very light and airy with big rooms, comfy beds, stylish... More

I feel so lucky to have been a guest here! I appriciated being picked up at the airport, getting advice about the city, the fantastic breakfast, but above all, I enjoyed the interesting conversations, and even an excursion, with Brom and Julian. They were so helpful, natural and cordial. The artistic atmosphere and the playful esthetics of the house were... More

My husband and I stayed at Tara for 2 nights recently,and we were delighted with the warm and cheery welcome from Julian and Brom who collected us from the airport as part of their B and B personalised service. Our room was very stylish and spacious with a super comfy bed that was appreciated after an international flight. The huge... More

I stayed at Tara on a recent business trip to Sydney. I had a really wonderful visit and would definitely return. The breakfasts are consistently amazing with fresh fruits, yogurt, granola, dumplings, latkes, eggs, bacon, sausages, tomatoes, mushrooms . . . and yes, I do mean all of them every day. The house is a gracious 1888 mansion with elegant... More

Stayed in Sydney for a conference recently. Decided to try Tara House B and B, and so glad I did! Was impressed with the easy access to and from the Enmore area to the city, but loved the grand old house, the brilliant friendly hosts and most of all the incredible breakfasts. Believe the hype it is true! Will definitely... More

We loved Tara Guest House! Julian and Brom made you feel special. Their personal attention and the advice in how and what to visit in Sydney were very valuable. Not to forget the breakfast: wonderful. Not only the food was great also meeting in a informal atmosphere other travelers was enjoyable. The location is also great. Newtown is funky and... More

This B&B would be worth a stay for the building and location alone, as the impressive 19th century house is comfortably furnished and located just off of funky King's Street and a manageable bus ride from the CBD / University of Sydney / Circular Quay, etc. The charming owners make Tara a must-stay in Sydney, however. Both are friendly, accommodating,... More
