“Very friendly and comfortable”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

I've been staying in Belfast very often for many years but only came across this one last week. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, there is a small car park, the wifi is free and fast and the rooms are very very comfortable - having quite recently been refurbished. There is no bar so it is more of a lodging hotel but it provides very well for business people. If you want a drink it is only 100 yards away from Botanic quarter and that I always lively anyway. I will certainly be back.

Stayed for 1 night on a shopping trip to Belfast, 4 ladies in 2 rooms. Checked in at reception and 2 receptionists were so helpful giving directions to bridal shops. Rooms spotless, bed very comfortable, complimentary water and cookies in room. Beautiful toiletries in the bathroom, great power shower. Double windows on the room help to keep out noise from the street (which wasn't excessive even though it was Saturday night) and no noise from adjoining rooms, very peaceful. Breakfast was excellent as was the service in the breakfast room. Throughout our stay the receptionist was friendly and remembered us personally. Taxi into town only £5, we could have walked in if we had flat shoes! Lots of places to eat just around the corner, although disappointed we couldn't get into Scallinis, queue for tables, always a good sign! I chose this hotel specifically because of its Trip Advisor reviews and I have to say they were spot on. I would definitely stay here again.

Lovely boutique hotel. Comfy beds, well appointed rooms. Personal touch.

Friendly, happy staff, nothing was too much trouble (even checked us in on airline and printed out boarding passes!). Breakfasts very, very good. A real GEM! More than lived up to the Tripadvisor ratings. Would recommend for the discerning traveller.

This hotel deserves its high ratings: clean and comfortable rooms, free unlimited internet, great breakfast included. The staff went out of their way to make guests feel comfortable; nothing was too much trouble. It's a short walk to the university but a little further to the centre of town. The price is very reasonable for what you get; this hotel would cost twice as much in other cities!

It is 10/15 minutes walk from the city center, 5 minutes from the university. Despite been very close to the lively Botanic Ave, the place is very quiet at night (room on the road side).
Room was very comfortable and clean, features free wifi, a small safe, flat screen tv, and complimentary mineral water. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Excellent and abundant breakfast, notice there is neither restaurant nor bar but there is plenty nearby. Would be glad to return.

My daughter, (10) and I stayed in the Tara Lodge for 2 nights. Without exception all the staff were very friendly and eager to help. Breakfast was very good, a little dissappointed that there is no restautrant onsite. The location is such that a trip into town is not a problem. The area seemed quiet in a good way, to us, (Fri/Sat night). The Tar is a short drive to the George Best Airport. Free parking monitored by cctv and 24hr reception all good to know.

Room Tip: Room 11 has a whistle...it is the air vent in the ceiling!
