We loved our stay at the Tara Manor Inn and would recommend it any time. The hotel is situated on a wonderful quiet park like property. Once owned by Sir Charles Tupper it combines old-world charm, great hospitality and tastefully decorated and spacious rooms. Our hosts Shelly and Darren made us feel welcome from the first minute of our stay... More

I made a reservation at Tara Manor after a lot of research to find the perfect accommodations for our first trip to New Brunswick. The location was perfect! The room that we had in the "carriage house" was beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. The hosts (Darren and Shelley) were incredibly gracious and helpful! The grounds were nicely manicured and beautiful.... More

From our initial conversations with Shelly, we knew we were in good hands. Majority of our wedding party and guests stayed at the Tara Manor Inn. Many of them had small children, a few had dogs, and one member required wheelchair accessibility. And the pool was especially perfect for the hot weather we had that weekend. Shelly went above and... More

This property was once the summer home of Sir Charles Tupper, Father of Confederation, and was later the retreat of the Honourable CD Howe PC, Liberal cabinet minister from 1935-1957. The grounds are delightful. The swimming pool pleasant although it does need lounge chairs that are more rugged. Our ground floor room was very comfortable. Though the weather was quite... More

We had a good experience at the inn. We didn't have the time to use the pool and hot tub.. Next time. The room was easily accessible which was great as we had our dog with us. The room was clean, the bed was comfy. The decor and carpet could stand to be updated. We will definitely stay there again... More

Tara Manor Inn is such a beautiful place. The grounds are immaculate and have many Adirondack chairs scattered about--perfect place to sit with a cup of coffee and watch the sun rise or to end the day with a glass of wine. I didn't use the pool because it was a bit chilly but the hot tub was amazing--brand new... More

This is my second stay. I had a slightly different expectation this time. I booked a historic room and thought it would look a little more rustic. It looked like a regular hotel room. But it is a great place.

Although the Inn is outside the town of St. Andrews, the location is excellent - quiet with a distant view over trees to the ocean. And only a very short drive into the centre of town. The staff was great!
