Well worth the stay. We were in Sydney for a concert and Tara House was convenient. We really appreciated Julian coming to the airport to pick us up. It was a Sunday evening with pouring rain and many many people trying to get home. The breakfasts - what more can we say than what others have already said. Julian and...

Julian & Brom made our stay in their wonderfully appointed house an absolute joy from the pick up at the airport to the last minute before our departure. This is home from home, and is more like staying with friends than being paying guests. The monumental and eclectic breakfasts were wonderful, in terms of the range of offerings, the freshness...

We can certainly recommend Tara Guest House - we stayed 3 nights which meant 3 fabulous breakfasts cooked by Julian and Brom. You won't need lunch after such a banquet of fresh fruits, juice and a mouthwatering selection of cooked delights. And properly made coffee and tea always impresses us. It was also fun to share the breakfast with other...

This is my second time staying at Tara and once again it didn't disappoint. Julian and Brom are wonderful hosts. They are extremely helpful providing a map of the city, advising us on buses and trains, and giving us great local advice on eateries and places to see. Julian was extremely helpful giving us lifts to the train station and...

We read good things about Tara in Lonely Planet and on Trip Adviser and decided to give it a try. We were arriving in Sydney in the evening and were staying for 2 nights before a cruise. It proved a very wise choice. In all honesty we have little to add to the comments on Trip Adviser about the quality...

We stayed at the ground floor Double Room Suite with dedicated bathrooms; perfect for a family of four adults. I was pleasantly surprised (and much relieved) to discover that there are two separate washrooms dedicated for our usage. One with a toilet and wash basin, another the shower room. Thus allowing for more efficient morning prep time. Julian, Brom, and...

A fantastic stay at TARA Guest House. Welcoming and well-located to a hip and vibrant part of Sydney. Public transport is easily accessed and close-by. Walking distance to the wonderful Enmore Theatre that hosts a variety of great performers. A beautiful home with an atmosphere that is accurately described on the website. Breakfast will set you up for the WHOLE...

Next time we go to Sydney we would stay here and I'm recommending it to my friends. The house is gracious and beautiful - it is well loved and restored and has a great energy. My Outbook Room upstairs was gorgeous with a very comfy bed with egyptian linen sheets - it is at the back of the house away...

Great stay as before. Thanks again for another welcoming visit and for the recommendation to go and see the new Frank Gehry building. I'm about to watch 'The Castle' as recommended by Brom. Very clean establishment!

You will definitely return once you experience TARA Guest House. Lovely people and great location. You have easy public access very close to the Guest House and you will be given Transport Cards including a great briefing and marked map. Rooms are artistically decorated and the breakfast is great and quite generous.

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
