While visiting New Glasgow for work, two co-workers and I were enticed to the Tara Inn by the very affordable price and the very favourable tripadvisor reviews. Our experiences were wonderful - clean rooms, comfy and clean beds, great staff, delicious continental breakfast...no complaints. Those wanting fancy schmantsy lodging might be able to find fault, but not us. It was... More

This older style hotel/motel was a great place for a traveler to rest up and relax. The rooms are dated but very clean and comfortable. The things I liked most was how quiet the rooms were and the fact that you could park right outside you room door. No carrying bags, no elevators and one step and you are outside... More

What a charming place with such a friendly staff! We stayed in the lower level of rooms around the back and across from a beautiful, well-manicured cemetery. It was wonderful. The room was so comfortable and quite large. The 3-piece bathroom was great with a walk-in shower and all very new. The only suggestion I would have for the owners... More

Honestly, I am writing this review from the hotel room....we haven't even spent longer than a few hours here and I am already impressed. Not your typical motel. Had a hard time finding a decent-priced place to stay for 1 night (as we are travelling), found Tara Inn on TripAdvisor, walked right in and got a room. Easy check-in, affordable... More

We came off the Cape Breton trail and stayed here due to it's proximity to the Halifax Airport. It's less than two hours away. The hotel was comfortable and clean enough, although by the look of our socks, the laminate was in need of a sweep. The rooms looked a bit dated, but it's bright and for being an older... More

I would do 3.5 if I could. Clean, friendly, easy highway access. Good breakfast for a motel. Fine for an overnight stop. Not much in the immediate area for dining though. Would stay there again if our paths crossed.

We just needed a nice quiet place to stop after a long, lovely drive in PEI and the ferry over to NS. So, New Glasgow seemed a good fit. The Tara Inn is the old-fashioned drive up to the door type. The beds were a bit lacking, and the bathroom small, but the room was clean and fairly spacious, with... More

Good stay, the attendant was very informative and even went to print us a schedule of high and low tide for the Membley Beach Area near New Glasgow. Breakfast was great for a continental breakfast - they had frozen pancakes and waffles and you could heat them up, which I'm not complaining about! Better than just toasted bagels and butter....

I was not expecting luxury accommodations....but....if you get one of the lower level rooms, you can hear everything in the room above you....every footstep, every squeak of the bed spring, the music being played. Then there was the shower....after a minute it would go cold, so if you adjusted the temp up, it would suddenly be scalding. Repeat this multiple... More

Stayed at the Tara Inn for one night in late July. The grounds were tidy and the staff was friendly, but the room was lacklustre. The beds were fine, and the room was clean, but the bathroom was tiny and uncomfortable. I didn't even attempt to shower, as the fan didn't seem to be working.
