This was my first trip to Sydney and so I chose Tara on the basis of the reviews here. The huge plus for me was the airport pick up which was very welcome after a long flight. Julian and Brom are both lovely people and very helpful. Being from the country I did need to use ear plugs but both...

Upon arriving at TARA--I was amazed by the homely feeling that immediately engulfed me. I met the day guard Ollie the Collie dutifully keeping watch on the front door. He was gentle and kind. The room that we stayed in was beautiful, and the bed was excellent. We were given great advice on what to do and see in Sydney....

Julian and Brom put class, personality, and comfort back in the innkeeper business. The breakfast is so enticing you'll forget you made morning plans. The rooms make you feel like you're in the home you always wanted. And the inclusive airport service makes this the best value in town. I would fly to Oz again just to stay at Tara...

We were attracted by the outstanding TA reviews and, yes, the home is wonderful, the hosts charming and very helpful; the breakfast is a feast to behold, our room was very spacious; and the place was spotlessly clean but, sorry, the traffic noise from our front room that started around 0530 or 0600 (weekday) was a major irritation.

We thank these guests for noting the positives of their stay with us – we do appreciate their even handedness. We are truly sorry that they found the room that they were in too noisy. Our ongoing renovation plans call for the eventual installation of external shutter doors, which will reduce the noise substantially. it must be said that our...

It should be no surprise that Tara has such consistently high ratings. Julian and Brom are very proud of their B&B, and it shows. They take a personal interest in each guest, and attach great importance to getting things right. The house is tastefully decorated and has a lot of character. Our room was comfortable, and the shared bathroom worked...

Stayed there with wife and parents a couple of months ago and will never go anywhere esle in Sydney. Julian is just the perfect host. From the moment he picks you up from the airport (free pick up and drop off by the way!) he makes you feel like the most important guest in the world. The rooms are big...

After staying at Tara for 12 nights, this is the only conclusion I can come to: all the great things that have been said about Tara are true. Thank you, Julian and Brom. When I'm in Sydney again I will not stay anywhere else.

We chose the Tara after reading Trip Advisor reviews and it certainly did not disappoint. We were slightly concerned that we may not get the full 'Sydney experience' due to staying out of the city centre - we need not have worried. The city is easily accessible by public transport and even walkable if you feel that way inclined, and...
