We picked Tara as we were looking for an alternative to Sydney's expensive hotels. We lived in Sydney for 8 years and Tara is in our old neighborhood so we thought it would be fun to be in the heart of our old stomping grounds to show are 10 year old son around. Turns out we made a great choice!... More

The hosts of Tara Guest House, Bron and Julian, made our stay in Sydney truly memorable. Tara Guest house is located in Newtown very close to bus and train connections and countless restaurants within a few minutes walk. The breakfasts are epic-comparable to a full branch!! And the conversations around the breakfast table were fun and informative. We will surely... More

Great place for family with kids! Nice restaurants nearby! My husband and 2 kids loved to stay in Tara's house. Julian and Brom are great hosts who really make us feel at home. The breakfast is fantastic. Actually I should say even I am back home now, I always remember the great breakfast there! It is very near to Sydney... More

Brom and Julian go out of their way to make you feel comfortable starting with their outstanding breakfast and flat whites. Seriously plan an hour for breakfast. I mean it is vacation, right? Brom made certain we understood the city and transportation system and gave us maps and many tips which made navigating the area so easy. They were quick... More

Tara is all about the hosts, Brom and Julian - what a delightful couple (a work in progress in Brom's words) and so sharing of themselves and their life experiences. Julian and I hit it off as we have the same taste in shirts (just joking!!). Oscar the wanton (wanton a scratch on the belly, that is) Border Collie added... More

In the mad rush which surrounds most urban dwellers it speaks volumes that Julian and Brom, two of the most charming and authentic people you will ever meet, have created a haven where travellers can sigh, smile, put their feet up and feel at home even though they may be many miles away from home. It's clear from the overwhelmingly... More

We stayed at Tara not long after Julian and Brom first opened and loved the house and Newtown so much that five years’ later we decided to visit again. Tara is just as great as we remembered. The first time we stayed in the ground floor suite with I really loved but Pete (the sensitive one) found a bit noisy.... More

My husband and I spent several days at the Tara Guest House in Enmore/Sydney this past week. We were greeted at the airport by Julian, who promptly delivered us to their charming home. We had the lower level suite room, and although our bathroom was across the hall, the room was very nicely appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable and... More

This has got to be one of the kookiest b'n'bs in Sydney - not that I have stayed in that many! The artworks are amazing and the rooms are just beautiful. Very comfortable and clean and THE BEST breakfast you could wish for. Breakfast is shared at a communal table with all of the other guests and gluten free, vegetarians... More
