This was an excellent find, great hotel, superb customer service, good beds, powerful showers and an extensive tasty breakfast - everything you need from a hotel. There are a number of restaurants within a short walk, plenty of choice and all budgets catered for. Lots of tourist attractions within easy reach, a train stop within a few minutes walk, free...

I stayed in this hotel from a Friday-Sunday with my boyfriend. The hotel was really really nice, and the staff were extremely friendly, from the reception staff to the breakfast staff. The rooms are really nice, clean and fresh, come with tea, coffee, water, and some lovely shortbread biscuits. The room also had a large TV with a good selection...

Lovely room, lovely staff and a great breakfast (although perhaps have something from the comprehensive choice on offer other than the scrambled egg). The fact that there is parking on site was a very welcome bonus. Handy for the town centre and plentiful restaurants in the vicinity. We shall definitely return to this excellent value for money hotel.

Stayed here as a part of a large family group, and the staff were never anything less than brilliant. Extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms themselves are nice and comfy, despite the fact that we were staying in one of the "smaller" annex rooms. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was excellent. Very tasty breakfast included.

Nice room, good location, good value. I was surprised how good it was for the money we paid. Many of the international chains were much more expensive but I would prefer the Tara. Excellent staff and excellent brekkie!! I would definitely return.
