TARA Guest House
Ranked #1 of 2 Enmore B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 April 2017

It was such a delight to stay at TARA for my birthday weekend. It was our second visit and the hospitality we received as wonderful as the first. Tara is the perfect base for catching up with family and friends and for experiencing all that the Inner West of Sydney has to offer. Great restaurants, nearby recreational facilities and parks and easy access to public transport are a big plus for this guesthouse. Thanks again Brom and Julian!

Prepare yourself for great hosts who make the best and heartiest breakfast in the world. Julian picked us up from the airport. The room is excellent if travelling with a kid. Brom gives tips adapted to your needs. And the breakfast keeps you full until the evening. Do not hesitate to book this place.

The title says it all.
Brom and Julian are the most engaging and considerate hosts you would wish to meet.
From the airport pick up to the wave goodbye, they give your stay that friendly touch lacking elsewhere.
Nothing was too much trouble.
The house, the breakfasts, the orientation session. The general kindness.
No hesitation in giving this wonderful couple and their home the highest rating.

Julian and Brom were wonderful hosts and their Edwardian house was to die for!
The house comprised of really beautifully appointed rooms- we loved ours - and our marble bathroom.
Breakfast was an epic delight - both are wonderful cooks and the food just kept coming - accompanied by great conversation! Our hosts were so helpful in giving us maps and helping us find where it was we wanted to go in the rest of Sydney.

Situated in Newtown - an "up and coming " area - only ten minutes walk to station or five minutes to bus - both taking us straight to the centre of Sydney.

So so much better than an anonymous hotel somewhere in downtown Sydney. Thank you for a great experience
