P.S We have recently been advised by Lonely Planet that TARA is featured in their 10th Sydney 2013 edition and the 2014 AUSTRALIA edition and in both, we are being recommended as top choice for Sydney Bed & Breakfast! We have absolutely no idea how this came about but thank whoever was responsible with much gratitude

In May of 2015, TARA has been welcomed in to the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame. This award is is granted only to businesses that have won their Certificate of Excellence for five years in a row! – we are simply amazed and very grateful to all our guests who have been so generous in their reviews.

We are also featured in Louis Vuitton’s new city guidebook for SYDNEY and enjoyed a glowing review from the Guardian newspaper last year.

I travelled alone and the rate for myself was $170 per night. I know that if I was travelling with my husband Brom quoted me $180 per night. This includes huge breakfast and airport pick up. The bed in my room was a King I think..very comfortable with quality linen. I highly recommend Tara ..Brom and Julian are very accommodating and I'm sure would look after your needs beautifully.
