Reviewed 26 September 2016

What a charming place with such a friendly staff! We stayed in the lower level of rooms around the back and across from a beautiful, well-manicured cemetery. It was wonderful. The room was so comfortable and quite large. The 3-piece bathroom was great with a walk-in shower and all very new. The only suggestion I would have for the owners is to add a bar of hooks to the wall or even just one hook on the door for hanging up clothes while showering. There was no place to put anything like that. Otherwise, it was really very nice.
They provide some comfortable chairs outside the door to sit and enjoy the air, and a continental breakfast is available in the bright breakfast room inside the main building. They had just about anything and everything you could possibly want! Very nice. We weren't familiar with the area, but there seem to be many places around to grab a meal.
Overall, this is a comfortable, clean and friendly place to lay your head. Thank you, Tara Inn for everything.

Room Tip: Rooms on the lower level across from the cemetery are apparently newer and are very quiet.

Honestly, I am writing this review from the hotel room....we haven't even spent longer than a few hours here and I am already impressed. Not your typical motel. Had a hard time finding a decent-priced place to stay for 1 night (as we are travelling), found Tara Inn on TripAdvisor, walked right in and got a room. Easy check-in, affordable priced, clean and tidy, friendly staff. The room has 2 double beds, tv, microwave, mini fridge, bedside table (as well as a corner table + 2 chairs), and a decently spaced bathroom with stand-up shower. Continental breakfast is included with your stay and I am looking forward to it. Free Wi-Fi and free bags of ice (if needed). Very happy, so far, and will keep Tara Inn in mind for when I come to Nova Scotia once again.

We came off the Cape Breton trail and stayed here due to it's proximity to the Halifax Airport. It's less than two hours away.

The hotel was comfortable and clean enough, although by the look of our socks, the laminate was in need of a sweep. The rooms looked a bit dated, but it's bright and for being an older hotel, I wasn't able to smell any traces of cigarette smoke.

It was nice to have a fridge and microwave in the room.

The washroom is small, with only a little shelf to place toiletries on.

I did not see a hair dryer, iron, or ironing board. Upon checkout, I did see an iron on the desk, so perhaps these items could be borrowed from the front desk.

With check in and check out, both desk agents were very friendly.

I would do 3.5 if I could. Clean, friendly, easy highway access. Good breakfast for a motel. Fine for an overnight stop. Not much in the immediate area for dining though.
Would stay there again if our paths crossed.

We just needed a nice quiet place to stop after a long, lovely drive in PEI and the ferry over to NS. So, New Glasgow seemed a good fit. The Tara Inn is the old-fashioned drive up to the door type. The beds were a bit lacking, and the bathroom small, but the room was clean and fairly spacious, with fridge/ microwave. I'd read reviews about loud neighbours, but we had a lovely quiet stay with fields behind us. Also, I personally, had no problem with there being a graveyard on the other side. Some people are bothered... Breakfast is offered, but it's very heavy on the bread/waffles. No eggs. But there was fruit. It was a pleasant enough stay.
