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...

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...

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,...

Tara Guest House is in a trendy suburb of Sydney, which is a short bus ride from the heart of the City and harbour. Julian and Brom welcomed us into their beautiful home which we would describe as a traditional style, large colonial house with a beautiful garden. The large, airy rooms were tastefully furnished and exceptionally comfy beds. The...

I chose the Tara guest house as a final refuge after a four month round-the-world trip before the long flights home. The physical environment is a spacious home that showcases an eclectic array of art, in close proximity to the many shops, restaurants and book stores on King street. What makes this bed and breakfast shine is the warm reception...

If you are heading to Sydney then I would say you have to stay here. Fantastic hosts, great breakfasts and clean and very comfortable rooms. You can go sightseeing all day after a breakfast there. So much on your doorstep in Newtown, great transport links to the city! So glad we stayed here!

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
