My wife and travelled to Sydney at the beginning of March in order to get onto a cruise ship for a cruise of the South Pacific. We spent one week in Sydney prior to getting onto the ship. Four nights were spent at Tara with Brom and Julian. We picked this B & B based on the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. Brom picked us up at the airport just as promised. Our flight from North America arrived in Sydney at 9:30 AM, yet when we got to the B & B our room was already prepped for us. Brom and Julian allowed us to get settled then Brom provided an excellent map of Sydney and many suggestions of what we could do. The B & B is located in a very vibrant area of Sydney with many good restaurants nearby. Yes, it is close to the airport and busy roads, but this is a big city. Noise was never an issue for either myself or my wife. The highlight of each day was the wonderful breakfast served each day, but even more fun was sitting around the breakfast table each morning getting to know guests from different parts of the world, discussing various travel experiences and discussing interesting things to do and see in the Sydney area. While there we met another couple who live a few hours south of Sydney and come into Sydney on a regular basis to go to music concerts. They always stay at Tara. This was something like their 6th time here. This speaks volumes about the welcoming atmosphere provided by Brom and Julian. The house is a wonderful old classic being lovingly restored by Brom and Julian. The rooms are large and comfortable. At the end of our 4 nights we moved down to Circular Quay to meet up with friends who we would be cruising with. Julian happily drove us downtown to the hotel where we were sheduled to meet up with our friends. If you want to wake up to the sounds of birds and animals don't stay here, but if you want to stay at a B & B with fantastic hosts in a terrific location in the big city of Sydney then stay at Tara Guest House. I promise, you will not be disappointed. My wife and I will be back to Sydney and when we do we will stay at Tara. Thank you Brom and Julian for making our stay so wonderful.
