Both Olivia and Niamh were lovely, and we felt welcomed from the first to last (4 nights). The hotel is in a great location off Botanic Ave, close to Queens Uni, and a nice 10 min walk to the city centre. Highly recommended! Breakfast was great - lots of options for any taste.

This an excellent hotel. I've stayed in 5 star hotels in Dubai and Hong Kong. The staff were more attentive and friendlier in the Tara Lodge. The room was exceptionally clean. The reception staff are very helpful and friendly. The night staff are very nice. The breakfast is really good. It is great value for money.

Stayed for the "It's cold outside". £110 for BB, prosecco and more. Great personal service from Peyton. This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Tara Lodge and we will be back. Really good value and service.

Booked direct on the hotel's website which was quite a bit cheaper than the likes of expedia or hotels.com. It's a nice hotel - clean, good shower, decent TV, great breakfast, friendly/helpful staff, free parking etc. Nothing to criticise. I'd stay here again.

Located in a fairly quiet side road, about middle distance from both Belfast City Hall and Queen's University, Tara Lodge is the ideal place if you want to explore Belfast without a car. And the hotel's car park (which needs some manoeuvring skills is places) helps with this - on-street parking in the area is like hens' teeth. the hotel...

Great location for exploring Belfast, I would suggest you check out belfastbikes.com and rent bikes to travel the city, really easy and a fun way to get about. Breakfast was fantastic both mornings,...

Everything here was perfect for us. Reception were very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable- the rooms were very clean, very comfortable, and a lovely size. The breakfast itself was deliciously fresh and cooked to perfection. The wait staff were polite, friendly, and accommodating. It's the only place I'd stay when returning.
