Having read really glowing reviews on Tripadvisor we were disappointed. Though the breakfast was indeed excellent the time was inflexible being at a set time. The upstairs room we had was damp and noisy, being under the flight path to the airport and on a main road. The location is good having easy access to public transport and Julian and...

Thank you for writing your review. We note with regret your disappointment and we sincerely apologise for your expectations not being realised. We also thank you for noting the positives and negatives. With regard to the latter, in mitigation, Sydney received more than twice its average monthly rainfall in March and as your stay was at the end of the...

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...

My sister and I just had the most wonderful experience staying with Brom and Julian at their Tara Guest House. They were perfectly delightful people and made all their guests feel as if we were all family. We met Julian when he picked us up at the airport and Brom when we arrived at Tara. Our check in time wasn't...

Tara is a wonderful house; Julian and Brom are wonderful hosts. I stayed in the bedroom on the ground floor since I use a walking frame to get around. This spacious room has an adjoining sitting-room, so effectively you have a suite. The bathroom might be a bit of a drawback for some people since it's actually two rooms across...

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...

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...

I staid at Tara Guest House in Enmore, Sydney for 3 days in the beginning of February 2017. And I must say that I couldn´t have picked a better place in Sydney. The neighborhood was interesting and vibrant, and close to the more busy and turisty city center. It had a genuine feel to it, with lots of interesting shops...

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
