Stayed at Tara Hall last april 2014 with my daughter for one night. Its about 5 min walk from the dart station which was handy. We were met by the owner when we arrived and shown to our room which was lovely and warm. The beds were very comfortable with nice fresh linen. Tara Hall is an old historic building... More

First thing on arrival we were told we were late, apparently booking.com guests have to arrive by 8.30pm. It was 9.30pm. Next was a request for payment. We paid £100 despite the booking fee being £94. Change was not given and our requests for same were simply ignored! Because we were leaving at 6.30am we were "too early for breakfast"... More

A traveling companion made our reservations based on the website photos and info. The exterior looks great (lovely garden), and the inside is less so. Our room was pretty small, the room's chair was rickety with a pillow covering the torn upholstery, the carpet dusty, and bed hard. The bathroom was a tiny corner partitioned off from the bedroom and... More

Visited here overnight with my mother last week. It's old, drab, and shabby. The twin room we got was tiny, and the en-suite even tinier. Everything was worn, the carpet was filthy, and the flow on the shower was non-existent. The only saving grace to this place was the cooked breakfast, it was gorgeous. A total rip-off for 80e BandB,... More

We stayed for four nights at this homely B&B. Margaret couldn't have done any better, giving sound advice and a wealth of knowledge. Always welcoming, she was keen to help any way she could. The breakfast was lovely, fresh and hot, with a nice selection of brown/white toast and some delicious soda bread! Yogurts, fruit and cereals also available in... More

A nice honest bed and breakfast. No frills. I enjoyed company of the hosts. Helped me with directions to local pubs and restaurants all within walking distance. Old house from 18th century not many of them around. If you have time try a swim in the forty foot which is a famous local open sea swimming place.

To be honest, after reading the various reviews I was sceptical about staying at Tara Hall, until I arrived. The rooms are neat and tidy very comfortable. The Internet is wonderful and Margaret wad absolutely wonderful. It's great value for money. The breakfast is great value. I would stay here again and again. If your looking for the 4 seasons...

This bed and breakfast has been slated in previous reviews.... Credit where credit is due.... this place ticked all my boxes. Margaret and John were great from the moment we arrived... they both could not be more helpful. Margaret with her wealth of knowledge and kindness. Thank you both for a lovely stay.
