We enjoyed staying here made us feel at home. Very helpful with getting around Sydney. Great breakfast you won't go away hungry for sure. Oscar the dog is a special pet, he loves everyone. They go the extra mile at the Tara House!!!

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

This wonderful old building in Enmore provides the total accommodation experience exactly as described on their website. Not too twee, full of character and warmth with interesting, friendly owners and Oscar the Border Collie working extremely hard to give their ever changing small 'family' of international visitors a place to be safe, comfortable and relaxed after their busy days of...

If you are looking for somewhere special to stay next time you're in sydney, look no further. We've stayed here a bunch of times and couldn't recommend it more highly. Lovely hosts too, including oscar the border collie xo

Julian and Bron are great hosts. Julian's breakfasts are something else - there is a wide variety of foods from all over the world, and more than you could ever hope to eat. Oscar, the dog, was a real hit with our son. However, we felt that the quality and separate location of the bathroom didn't match the price bracket... More

We stayed in the upstairs back room which was a really lovely room but for us it was a bit inconvenient sharing a bathroom so I would def stay again but choose the upstairs room with own bathroom.The...

We chose to stay at Tara Guest house for our final couple of days of our trip to Australia before heading back to California rather than stay in a sterile, expensive Sydney hotel that would have been a letdown at the end of our trip. Brom and Julian's wonderful hospitality exceeded our expectations: from the pick up at the airport,... More
