I chose to stay at the Tara Guesthouse after a business trip in Brisbane, to break up the monotony of business travel. I was so pleased to have chosen to stay with Julian and Brom, their outstanding hospitality and welcome made my short stay in Syndey very pleasurable. Breakfasts every morning were sublime. Brom gave me a fantastic map of... More

I am writing my review on behalf of my parents. I booked them into the Tara from UK and Julian and Brom were fantastic, arranging to collect them from the airport and drop them off. My parents loved the guest house, raved about the breakfasts (which are huge and delicious) and bonded with their dog. Julian and Brom were helpful,... More

A lovely , friendly place to stay in Sydney. Brom and Julian can't do enough to please you , nothing is too much trouble and their breakfast's are legendary. We arrived in a thunderstorm and were so grateful that Julian was there to meet us at the Airport.

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
