Staying at Tara Guesthouse was a joy: a gracious 1880s house with large, light, airy rooms and a casually styled urban design aesthetic complemented throughout by the owners' extensive art collection. A beautiful, comfortable and relaxing environment just metres from buzzing Enmore Road leading to King Street Newtown, both end-to-end with bars, eateries, bookshops, nightlife, markets, as well as excellent transport links (buses & trains) to the CBD & the harbour. Truly distinctive however is the warmth and generosity of spirit of Tara's owners, Julian and Brom, and their genuine interest in all their guests. This is particularly expressed in their legendary 'breakfeasts', from honey-drizzled ricotta on fresh brioche starters to an astounding array of cooked savoury delights in a very convivial atmosphere at a long table with the hosts and other guests. You won't need lunch and, if staying more than 1 night, transfers are complimentary. For us this meant a wonderful conversation that began at the airport and continued until we were returned there for departure. We'll certainly be back.
