It is the staff that really tops this hotel off.When you come back they greet you like an old friend in a very genuine way. So many hotels seem to have a high turn over with new staff each time you go back . I hope the management continue to look after the staff to ensure they stay with them,...

The room was warm and very comfortable with all the necessary requirements. I will recommend...

Tara Lodge is tucked away in an unobtrusive part of town - a tardis of delight! From the time we arrived the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The rooms were excellent.

Just getting ready to check out. Had a fab breakfast, great service, spotless room and all the staff are delightful and could not have been more helpful. It's rare to get such a warm, genuine welcome to a hotel. The Tara is a great place. It's a great location as well.
