    Great small hotel in a perfect location for Belfast. Close to botanical gardens and university, and easy walk to a ton of great restaurant ideas (including great Indian food just down the street). Parking is free and at the hotel, and breakfast was also top notch! Room was great with modern facilities and nice bathrooms.

    Accommodation amazing! Wonderfully clean and stylish. Beautifully decorated bedroom with the most comfortable kingsized bed. Location perfect for sightseeing. Loved it. Highly recommended hotel offering five star service without five star prices. We will be going back again without question.

    Belfast has not been a prime tourist spot for Americans but I can testify it should be since it has a more interesting flavor than many other places. While there has been a history of "troubles" it is more comfortable than many other places. The sites of such as the Murals make the visit very worthwhile but there is much... More

    Clean bright rooms, good bathroom, small TV with just basic freeview channels. Excellent breakfast, freshly prepared and nothing was too much trouble. Taxis arranged reliably and easy access to printer for boarding cards. In a good location for University/Botanic Gardens/Ulster Museum with ample places to eat and drink around the corner.

    Great value with special touches! Room was clean and bed was comfortable. They had a extensive DVD collection for you to borrow from, which we thought was a nice personal touch. The breakfast that was included was made to order of which I would have expected to pay (a lot!) for! Only wish we were able to stay longer!

    Located in the university quarter off a high street in a residential street. Small boutique hotel with traditional decor. Five star room presentation, very clean with iPod station and nespresso coffee machine. Desk staff helpful with planning and booking our day in Belfast, and breakfast staff very attentive . Highly recommended

    We spent 2 nights at the tara lodge recently. The hotel was a welcome surprise. Great location, good sized modern room, great internet and excellent breakfasts. Great value for money too in my opinion. Some of our party got nasty colds while flying over from AUS and the extra help and comfort provided by the staff for them was greatly... More
