Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Stayed for two nights Saturday/Sunday and the hotel is in a good location for restaurants and the train station. The welcome was very warm and that was an ongoing theme with all the staff. Breakfast was really good and introduced my husband to the concept of the “porridge starter” as after choosing porridge he was also then offered the full Irish to follow!!!! Only issue was how much street noise there was. We had rooms facing into the road and both nights there was a lot of party noise. Loud music, shouting and argue menus into the early hours. Overall though a good stay

Stayed for one night early August. The hotel is in a lovely area, being quieter and with a nicer selection of eateries than we found in the city centre. The centre is easily walkable in around 15-20 minutes. The botanic gardens are very near and worth a visit (no entry fee). Hotel parking was a big bonus - we arrived early so not sure how quickly the car park gets full though. Reception staff extremely friendly and helpful. Room well equipped although we found ours to be on the warm side and had to open windows to moderate. Breakfast excellent too. Would return here if staying in Belfast again.

We stayed at Tara Lodge near the end of our 16 day trip to Ireland. It was delightful! The staff was friendly and helpful and our room was spacious and spotless. It had many thoughtful amenities, like washcloths, good lighting, and mirrors near outlets for using the hairdryer. The location is very good, near many restaurants and Queens University (where we walked through the botanical gardens) and the hotel has free parking behind the hotel.

A pleasant stay. The area the hotel is in quiet but still within a reasonable walking distance of the city and/or a train station. Room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The only slight gripe we had was being right next to the lift, which clearly needs servicing. The breakfast is cooked to order and delicious. The restaurant are flexible with hot options.

5 night stay at this hotel. Could not complain about anything at all. Staff super friendly and happy to help with any requests. Situated in a quiet street but close enough to walk to the city centre. Shops and stores close by plus pubs and eating areas. Great breakfast was included and all the staff were super friendly and happy to have a conversation and banter Definitely happy to stay again
