You wouldn't expect to find the #1 rated hotel in Belfast in a side street surrounded by student flats, but that's exactly where you'll find the Tara Lodge. And once you've navigated into one of the limited car parking spaces that are available in the oddly shaped car park, you'll discover that the Tara Lodge is a real gem. I don't think it is worth five stars because it's obviously not a luxury hotel and it lacks some facilities such as a restaurant and residents' lounge or other public seating area, but the bedrooms are fine (nicely decorated) and bathrooms are clean. I never like having to step into a bath to get a shower but that's OK as well. Free Wi-Fi is OK, although the signal wasn't strong enough for an iPhone to connect in the room that we have and the need to constantly enter a username and password is tiresome. The staff are extremely friendly and want to help, which is always nice and the location of the hotel makes it easy to walk to Belfast's shopping and restaurants. Breakfast is served in a bright room with a smile. The Ulster Fry is worth having if your heart is healthy - otherwise try the porridge. Overall, a very useful hotel to know about in Belfast and one that is easy to like.
