Lovely hotel with ok prices. Wanted to stay in a hotel with it's own car park to keep our car safe at night and this ticked the box. Great location close to the city and in a nice area beside the queens university. Stayed twice over a long weekend. Both rooms had good space. First was in main building with... More

Tara Lodge is everything Trip Advisor review's say. The staff were without exception; polite, friendly and could not have been more helpful. The rooms were clean and light. The breakfasts were prepared to a very hight standard. Presentation excellent and each plate freshly cooked to order. The only reason for not giving Tara Lodge an excellent overall is because the...

This hotel has the most excellent customer service. When we arrived we noticed that our room was facing onto a busy road and had a slight draught it the window, so we requested to be moved and were offered a second room. The second room, although smaller, seemed perfect at first, quiet and comfortable, but soon after we moved to... More

Stayed in Tara Lodge recently for a city break. Very personal, intimate place. The staff working at reception were top class- couldn't have been more friendlier, approachable and helpful. Really appreciated their hospitality, in particular Ricky who was such a gent. Rooms were lovely, clean and spacious. We particularly liked the DVD service where you could choose from a selection...

Very attentive staff, very clean, a great breakfast choice every morning, located on Cromwell road just off Botanic Avenue in the Queens quarter of the City within a 15 minute walk to the city centre. Also close is the Botanic Gardens and within 5 minutes walk is the Belfast Empire which provides entertainment most nights at no extra cost.

Our son is studying in Belfast and we are so pleased to have found the Tara Lodge for our visits there. Welcoming, super-friendly staff; extremely comfortable beds in well-equipped rooms; fantastic, freshly cooked breakfast and a great location for both Queens University and the City Centre. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Friendly staff, spotlessly clean, excellent breakfast!! Thought it had only been open a couple of years and was surprised to find out its been on the go for a lot longer, it's so well kept you'd think it was a fairly new establishment!! While it's not right in the center of Belfast, it's only a short walk away, I guess... More

We had never stayed at a B&B before. Our flight arrived late but Ricky made us feel welcome and gave us coupons for a restaurant and told me my last hotel would mail the coat I left behind. Sharon had booked our Game of Thrones tour. Breakfast was good. My husband loved his omelet and said they were the best... More
