We spent the night here. It is overpriced for what you get fridge but no coffee maker or microwave. Internet was so so. Breakfast adequate but things hard to find. Make sure you check all the drawers and doors to find what you need. Things are not well displayed or labeled. It was clean and quiet so as we say... More

The Tara Inn is a bit of well-kept 1960's style with friendly people there to greet you. Somehow, it manages to be immediately adjacent to the freeway and, yet, be totally quiet. It is also not far from a shopping center and very short drive to downtown New Glassgow. Our room was spotless and parking is right outside of the... More

Tara Inn is a basic, no frills accommodation option in New Glasgow. It was perfect for our one night stay on the way to Baddeck. The room felt a little larger than a standard chain hotel double. Everything was clean and well cared for. The hotel staff were all helpful and friendly. Basic breakfast options that met our needs were... More

This is nice new inn with quiet comfortable rooms, good continental breakfast, and an excellent staff. You get quite a bit of quality for the money here. One staff member, Zack, even helped us to trouble shoot a WIFI problem on one of our devices.

Clean, quiet and adequate for the price. No frills but a good night's sleep. Continental breakfast should satisfy everyone. Staff are polite and helpful. Just down the street from major shopping area.

The room was small and the bathroom was smaller however it was nicely appointed, very clean and the bed was excellent (pillow-top bed). They provide a Reasonably good continental breakfast with great coffee. The staff were very pleasant. We will definitely stay here when we return.

This place is extremely good value and to be completely honest was a lot nicer than we expected given what it cost. The bed was super comfortable with plenty of pillows, the room was very spacious and even included a comfy couch was which was a nice addition. We were expecting to be cold at night and I figured there... More
