We stopped here on our drive from Melbourne to Brisbane around Christmas time. Serena was very friendly and helpful, and the rooms were spotless and the bed extremely comfortable. This was the best pet-friendly accommodation we stayed in on our road trip and would definitely stay again. We stayed here again on our way back to Melbourne! Delicious breakfast too...

My husband and I stayed overnight, in much need of rest & relaxation. After speaking with Serena to make our reservation, I felt at ease knowing we had chose the right place to stay. When we arrived, Serena & Kim made us feel so welcome! Loved the Balinese decor and furnishings, and the peaceful and warm atmosphere. We stayed in...

Very clean, accommodating and relaxing. I stayed in the Lotus room which has a small ensuite and courtyard. Not quite enough room for my two dogs, but certainly comfortable. The room was very clean and the bed comfy. There were two compendiums - one for the two legged visitors, and one for the four! The pet compendium was just adorable...

My wife and I stopped over for a night on the way to our wedding in Byron Bay. We booked Tantarra after a web search for accommodation halfway between Melbourne and Byron that also accepted pets. We weren't expecting that Tantarra would be such a great start to the trip. The room was very comfortable, but I think the main...

We have just spent 3 nights in Tantarra, we cannot speak more highly of the place! We booked it based on the reviews from Tripadvisor, we stayed in the 'Shambala' room it was large and had its own ensuite bathroom with shower/bath and a small kitchenette. The breakfasts are the best and all the hype you read about the here...

I was under no misconception that the room we booked was small so there are no complaints there. The ensuite bathroom was also small and it would be good to have more shelving and places to put your bathroom products in the shower cubicle - the circular apparatus that possibly could hold a glass was the only thing in the...

Tantarra, Owner at Tantarra Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

Thank you for your comments. We do ask for honest feedback. Re- room service - the compendium states quite clearly that I do not service rooms daily - unlike hotels. I do service rooms every other day when guests stay for more than two days. This allows for me to keep room costs down. Re - dog under table -...

I am so pleased that we discovered Tantarra during our last trip to Newy. It's a beautiful property within walking distance of the Esplanade but without the noise of cars flying past! Our room was perfect - comfortable bed, crisp linens, fluffy towels, sparkling ensuite, and a small outdoor area for our four-legged fur-baby. Breakfast by the pool was an...

This was our first stay in a pet-friendly accommodation so we were not really sure what to expect. However, whatever we might have imagined tantarra b&b far exceeded our expectations. Selena and Kim went the extra mile to ensure that not only us humans were comfortable but also our two dogs. Nothing was too much trouble, the room comfortable, nice...
