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...

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...

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...

Everything about my stay was absolutely divine. Julian and Brom were such welcoming hosts the moment I walked in and the breakfast was 5 star. Enmore is a very vibrant area with a huge selection of fantastic restaurants and a great community feeling to it. The terrace itself has exquisite artwork and the garden was beautiful. I could hardly get...

Beautiful old house right in Newtown / Enmore. 10min walk to Newtown station, walk to all shops, main street. Lovely spacious old terrace house, beautiful interior, garden and artwork. Nice and quiet, leafy street. The breakfast is absolutely delicious, multiple courses, Brom and Julian really put it on, easily worth $40+ in cafe prices, but better than any breakfast I've...

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.

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...

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...

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...

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
