I was somewhat skeptical of the reviews I read about this hotel, but after staying there I am certain that the Tara Lodge has excellent management, as reflected by the sincere customer first attitude of all of the staff members. The hotel is along some row houses in a residential area of a lively neighborhood. It felt local. The room... More

The staff at Tara Lodge obviously enjoy what they do and it shows...always a smile, always ready to help, and the knack of treating you like a friend rather than a paying guest. It may be a small hotel, but the personal treatment you receive is huge! The rooms are spacious, comfortable, with super comfortable beds and all the necessities.... More

We stayed at Tara Lodge for 2 nights. It is located very close to the Botanic Railway station & approx.10minsins walk from the city centre. Staff are very helpful & attentive The bedrooms and guest areas are kept very clean and tidy. The breakfast is good with a good selection on offer. Would definitely stay here again.

Very friendly staff who are eager to help. Hotel is located a bit away from the city center with many restaurants nearby. Room is clean, restaurant food is good and the staff is great. Fifteen-minute walk to the downtown area. Front desk can easily arrange any tours of the city.

I stayed at the Tara Lodge while attending an event at Queen's University. Tara Lodge seems to have two sections that include the hotel itself and then an addition or extension with more rooms. I stayed in the hotel and was extremely happy with my room. It was spacious enough, clean, decorated in a modern and pleasing style and it... More

Came to this hotel as I couldn't get into my first few preferences and I have got to say I won't be going anywhere else when I come to Belfast. The room was spacious and very clean as I don't drink tea or coffee it was a delight to find two bottles of water in the room. The think that... More

Stayed here based on other reviews and was not disappointed. The hotel is in a residential area about a 10 minute walk to the city centre. The room has everything you need and is well maintained. The staff were very attentive and did whatever they could to make sure the stay was enjoyable. I had not requested a bath when... More

Picked this hotel based on price from another website. Didn't realise it had such a strong tripadvisor rating when I booked, but having stayed there last week, I can see why. Location is just a few minutes from Botanic train station, so really convenient for city centre. There are lots of little shops, restaurants and bars nearby, too. Rooms are... More

We came to this hotel as others that we would normally try were completely booked which is a real pity because this is a fantastic hotel and that is why I call it a hidden gem. It is as good and probably better than any hotel in the city and I would encourage people to try it. It also gives... More
