If a bathroom that you can dance in is your fancy, Tara Motor Inn, is your spot! If rooms that are huge - two queen beds, couch, desk, etc. Tara is the location. All the best describing adjectives apply, clean, friendly, quiet. A better than fair value.

The new owners will eventually get this property up to great standards. They are a lovely couple. Right now, however, the rooms are decorated in 1950's style and many repairs are needed. The breakfast was very good.

On both our trip up and on the way back,we spent a night at Tara Manor. Both rooms were fabulous. Whoever designs the decor for the rooms is amazing. Very plush. Staff pleasant and helpful. Very clean. Nice landscaped yards. Unique property.

Billed as a historic motel, perhaps the modifying words should be "tired but still serviceable." Although limited by its dated design, the setting is beautiful, the beds were still very comfortable and the price was very reasonable. Negatives: the room was very dark (need more lamps, especially near the chairs for reading), the included continental breakfast was mostly carbohydrates, and... More

From check in to check out, our experience was wonderful. The room was lovely, and the bed very comfortable. Large clean bathroom, microwave and fridge, and TV with many channels and free WIFI rounded out this room. There was lots of space outside to walk my dogs which I appreciated. This was one of our best stays on our east... More

We stayed in the motel section of the Tara Manor our last evening in New Brunswick. From our room the next morning, we saw the pretty orange sky above the water as the sun was rising. Both beds and chairs in our very large clean room were comfortable. Many TV channels were available, and the room had a closet, a... More

We stayed 1 night at this property a couple of weeks ago. This place was recommended by the visitor's centre and we were not disappointed. If we had had more time, we would have enjoyed it even more. There is a heated, outdoor pool which was enjoyed by some happy children. There is lots of open space, many trees and... More

The Tara Manor Inn is a charming place to spend the night before heading onto the Grand Manan ferry at Blacks Harbour. We arrived late but Laura, at the front desk, was super friendly and helpful. Our room was a bit dated but clean and even had a fridge and microwave. We had a private seating area and I noticed... More

We spent one night at Tara Manor on our recent trip to St. Andrews. The carriage room was beautiful as were the rest of the grounds. The woman working the front desk was very nice and helpful. The included breakfast was a great addition.

This was a quaint place to stay that was cleaned each day while we were out and run by a couple that we met later in the week. They were very friendly as was their staff. We had breakfast each morning in the dining room which was complimentary. We don't eat wheat and they happen to have Gluten free bread... More
