Tara lodges in a great and safe location. It is convenient to several attractions within walking distance. The staff is fabulous for arranging for tours to pick up at the hotel and cars to take you anywhere you wish.

Amazing, friendly, helpful staff made the entire stay brilliant! Room was good, only small downside on the room (and it is really small) was the TV was positioned right off to the side and not great for watching in bed. The breakfast was one of the best I've ever had at a hotel! Our room was at the back and... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Tara Lodge. From check in to check out and everything in between, our stay exceeded our expectations. We were lodged in the newer addition to the Lodge and were very pleased with the room. Breakfast each morning to order and the waitstaff was wonderful. Parking is free and we left our car in the...

We had a clean small room with a queen size bed. I didn't read the reviews as to where to choose a room. We were at the back of the hotel where the street noise was noticeable. The man at the check in couldn't have been nicer. He directed us to a restaurant for dinner. They do not serve dinner... More

My husband and I stayed here just over the weekend and had a lovely time. We were drawn to it as it had free parking, a rarity in central locations in Belfast. We arrived about 2.30 and got a space no problem, but the car park is small. To be honest, there is loads of free street parking about, but... More

I never fill out the Tripadvisor review but I had to make an exception this once. We were booked into Tara Lodge on Tuesday 16 August but because the weather was beautiful and we had such a lovely time at the Giant's Causeway we were much later arriving in Belfast than we had intended. The result was that we got... More

Found this little gem for £83 a night. Clean updated rooms. Delightful morning breakfast. Great customer service. If you need a cab they will call it straight away for you. Take a tour to Giants Causeway. The bus picks you up right in front of the hotel. Not in the middle of the city from what I can figure many... More

Tara Lodge could be perfect- the staff couldn't be friendlier, the rooms are pleasant, the breakfast excellent. The location very good. The only thing which marred our stay was being on the highest flight of stairs in the annex. I would like to commend Ariene at reception for being especially helpful .
