“The Tara Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2007

Having heard rave reviews about seeing in the New Year in Fishguard, I thought I check it out myself. I spent New Years Eve at the Tara Hotel and had a wonderful time. The staff were polite, courteous and willing to help from the minute I arrived.

The breakfasts were first class and very tasty.

The rooms were warm and clean and tidy. It is worth the visit to be introduced to the Tara hotel pets who are a delight.

I would strongly recommend a stay in the Tara Hotel. it is ideally located for the ferries and for checking out the west Wales countryside or a great place to stay at if you want to experience the New Year in Fishguard.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2006

We used this hotel, as most people seemed to, as an overnight stop before catching the ferry to Rosslare, Ireland. It's certainly convenient for the ferry, but the hotel was disappointing. It's in bad need of a facelift. The wallpaper was hanging off and dirty and carpets were threadbare. Our room was very small and extremely dusty. Bed linen was clean, but the towels smelled like they had been folded up while still damp and were horrible. The bathroom was ok, although I wouldn't have walked around barefoot.
The staff were extremely nice and helpful and told us the best places to go.
Couldn't fault the cooked breakfast in the morning - plenty of it.
We stayed here the day after our wedding, so it was a disappointing start to our honeymoon. The staff were very nice, though.

TaraHotel, Manager at Tara Hotel, responded to this review, 27 July 2007
Please ignore the review as it is out-of-date and does not reflect the current status of our hotel.
Ownership of the Tara Hotel hotel has now changed. Several of our rooms have been updated and redecorated.
We have been awarded 3 stars for our accommodation from the Welsh Tourist Board and 4 stars for our hospitality and food.

Thanks,
Tara Management.
