What can I say about Tara Guest House, amazing hosts with such great stories to tell over a simply awesome breakfast, that kept you going until dinner. Loved the communal breakfast with other guests. Brom and Julian were great hosts and it was never too much trouble helping us plan our days in Sydney and with restaurant and bar choices for the evenings. Julian collected us and dropped us back to the airport which was a real personal touch. Loved the area of Enmore and Newtown and only a bus journey away from the main areas of Sydney. We simply cannot recommend this guesthouse highly enough and it certainly has been our best stay anywhere. Thank you both.

Room Tip: The large top floor where we stayed was fantastic

We stayed 3 nights in Tara guesthouse and enjoyed our stay in Sydney. The hosts Julian and Brom are very friendly and welcoming and help with a lot of good suggestions on sightseeing. Julian picked us up from the airport, which was very pleasant after a long flight. Breakfast offered many variations and was absolutely delicious every day. The rooms are spacious, absolutely clean and nicely decorated. There is a lot to explore in the neighbourhood and different buses around the corner take you to the city center in 15 to 20 minutes. We would definitely stay again.

My fiancé and I landed in Sydney with no place to stay- bought Lonely Planet at the airport and discovered Tara - we called and they had availability! LUCKY! They offered to pick us up at the airport but we ordered an Uber. Who offers to pick people up at the airport?? We knew we already loved this place!

Upon arriving we loved the charm, unique art and chic-ness. Owners Brom and Julian MAKE THE BEST BREAKFAST WE HAVE EVER HAD. WE STILL TALK ABOUT IT/DREAM ABOUT IT. We are lucky we only stayed for 4 nights order else we would have gained 100 lbs.

Although Brom and Julian are probably our seniors by 30+ years they are infinitely cooler than we will ever be.

Not only was the breakfast amazing Brom and Julian gave us the insiders recommendations of local places to explore and eat with no tourists. We owe our amazing time in Sydney to them.

Oh and Oscar the dog is such a cutie.

We stayed in Tara Guesthouse from December 12. to 21. 2016. We choseTG, only a short bus- train ride from Circular Quai, as home base to explore Sydney. Brom & Julian are wonderful and charming hosts. Their effort to help us with informations to make our visit unforgetable was just great.
The breakfasts in Tara Guesthouse are delicious but after...you better go out for a long walk to burn off some calories.
So glad we stayed there!

Room Tip: All rooms are tastefully furnished and have comfy beds!

Tara guesthouse is a truly unique boutique accommodation experience in Australia. This grand house with a gritty history is located in cosmopolitan, inner city Enmore and its owners Susan and Julian have restored it lovingly, filled it with fantastic art, and made every room comfortable and stylish. You get so much more than a hotel here: fancy sheets and bedding, sure, but also full bookshelves, beautiful antique and vintage furniture, and a lovely garden setting. There is plenty of privacy but the interiors are also open in a way you never find in hotels. At Tara, you wake every morning to a gourmet four-course breakfast and as you nosh, you can get tips for day trips and activities from Susan and Julian, who grew up in Sydney and are a font of knowledge on the history and geography of the city, as well as events that are going on right now. Their hospitality and advice opens Sydney beyond the familiar tourist trail and with that breakfast under your belt you will have the energy to explore until the cocktail hour. Brekkie, wifi, airport transfers and a fully topped up Opal card are included in the room tariff making Tara the most affordable accommodation going, incredible given how luxurious it is. I cannot recommend this guesthouse highly enough.
