Everything was great - receptionist went out of her way to get us checked in early, ground floor room was perfect for us as I was heavily pregnant. Delicious breakfast and incredibly helpful and informative staff. Definitely planning to return!

Stayed at the Tara Lodge from 10 Aug 14 to 13 Aug 14 and once again (previously stayed in Feb 04) the best, without doubt, B&B in Belfast. Great rooms, comfortable beds, reasonable rates, excellent breakfast and the most wonderful staff. Free wifi and situated in the best quarter of Belfast. Great local Italian restaurant (Scalini) within 3 minute walk.... More

What a wonderful place to stay. The room was beautifully decorated and the breakfast room was terrific with plenty of choices for everyone. The staff sold us tickets to the Titanic Experience and so we were able to skip the long lines and enter straight away. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Fantastic stay. Rooms clean and comfortable with tasteful decoration. The staff were thoughtful enough to leave a small box of chocolates in our room as I happened to mention during check in that we were celebrating our anniversary. Food at breakfast the next morning was excellent. Downside is the hotel doesn't have a restaurant or bar but there are so... More

Only just arrived 5 minutes ago but we already feel very comfortable and well looked after. Young lady called Sharon at the reception is very friendly and welcoming, while being super efficient. An excellent start to a short stay and the room is perfect. Spacious, quiet, clean and has everything you'll need for a nice stay!

I stayed at Tara lodge for 3 days in July 2014. It was immaculately clean, comfortable and attractive. My room, #19, was on the 2nd floor facing over the small parking lot and the railway, and with a beautiful view of a quiet street and the Belfast skyline. The staff were all very helpful and hospitable.....absolute gems. The breakfast was... More

We had a great 3 night stay here. The room is very spacious, modern and comfortable with all the little things travellers look for - lots of power points, iron and ironing board, chairs, room safe etc. The receptionists were very cheerful, personable and helpful. Breakfast is included and was always delicious. Parking is limited but there is on street... More

We booked one of the annex rooms at this hotel, with the understanding that it would be a smaller room than in the main lodge. We were surprised to see our room was considerably larger than most of the hotels we'd booked in other European/UK cities! There was certainly no need for us to have a room any larger. Our... More
