A very nice nights stay after the perfect welcome from helpful well trained staff. Walls in the rooms a bit thin though!!! Beds are excellent as are the rooms themselves

It was the first time we stayed at the Tara Lodge. I had a problem upon leaving the hotel and thought I had left something in the room which turned out not to be the case but the staff were very patient and went out of their way to help me. I cannot rate their excellent service more highly. We were a fairly big party and everyone was delighted with the accommodation. One or two members thought it a pity that there was no bar where we could all meet after a long journey. All members of the party were delighted with the choice and quality of the breakfast.

The lot was full, so we had to park on the street, which was o.k. The gentleman who checked us in was very helpful, the front desk woman the next day not so much. The room was well done. Overall, a good value.

Tara Lodge has long been my favourite place to stay in NI. Simple but stylish and comfortable, spotlessly clean, super breakfast and staff for whom nothing is ever too much trouble. It is in a quite back street, but within a few minutes walk of a host of restaurants and bars, including some of the best restaurants in Belfast.

We enjoyed our stay at the Tara Lodge. We went to Belfast to visit the Titanic Museum, and the location was fine for this. The rooms are excellent and very clean. The staff was amazingly helpful as we dealt with a lost luggage issue. I highly recommend Tara Lodge if you are going to Belfast City.

Nice place. Very friendly and helpful staff. Had parking and wifi which we wanted. The only thing is it's not in the city centre and doesn't have the leisure facilities as a big hotel.

Excellent service - staff even provided a perfume-free room as requested. Rooms, bathrooms, breakfast room, staircases etc all very spruce and quite newly redecorated. And free Wi-Fi throughout. Only things we could fault were the road it's situated in (but Tara can't do much about that) and the coffee at breakfast, which we found lacking in flavour.
