My husband and I travelled to Sydney from the US for the first time in May of this year for our honeymoon, and were so happy with our decision to stay at Tara Guest House. Julian was highly accommodating in regards to our transfers to and from the airport (this adds a great deal of value to the cost of...

I wanted to stay in a smaller establishment as staying on my own this time, I needed to be near my son who lives in Canterbury and found this special guesthouse on searching the net. Even in England I have never come across a more welcome, clean and friendly place to stay. I stayed at Tara for nearly 3 weeks...

All of the other reviews have said it all. Tara House with Brom and Julian is just the best. I am not a big fan of a B&B. I like more privacy than is usually offered in a B&B. But Tara House was perfect for me, even though we shared a bath. The hosts were fascinating people. Their graciousness was...

If you want to get away from the standard big city tourist trail, then Tara is the place to stay. Fabulous quirky area, not yet too 'gentrified', with fabulous hosts Julian and Brom who can advise you on anything and everything. Breakfasts are amazing, you need to see them to believe and the communal kitchen area makes for a relaxing...

We had an excellent stay at the Tara Guest House. Both Julian & Brom were fantastic hosts. We stayed in The Rocks for a few days, flew up to the Whitsundays and then stayed at Tara for 3 days in Sydney near the end of our trip. Our plan was to stay closer to the major tourist attractions and then...

Arriving in any city, on your own, at 6.55am after 24 hours in the air can be a daunting prospect. So it was fantastic to know that I had a private transfer arranged and that Julian was only a phone call away. To be honest, it was like meeting an old friend, Julian put me at ease immediately and whisked...

Julian picked us up at the airport with a huge smile and whisked us off to Tara. We met Brom and got settled in. We joined some others at the breakfast table and chatted amicably about our journey and plans for Sydney.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tara Guest House is located in Sydney’s cosmopolitan Newtown/Enmore area with a reputation for being the chicest bohemian outpost in the city's inner suburbs, while maintaining a great sense of friendly local community and only 15 minutes from the CBD. Built around 1880 on large grounds, this recently renovated Victorian house has a mix of classic mid 20th century and antique furniture and improvements are ongoing. We are close to UTS and Sydney University, more than 400 restaurants, cafes, bars and theatres. Interiors have been thoughtfully styled to take advantage of the seriously spacious rooms and to ensure indulgent comfort for our guests. Good tucker always guaranteed! ... more   less
