Had a bar meal here recently. The place was extremely busy but still the service was excellent - and the food excellent also. I have never had the remotest cause for complaint and the operation is a great credit to those who run the place.

Reception guys were incredibly helpful & friendly. They gave us a lovely room at a great price. We had a beautiful seafood dinner in the restaurant & staff were busy but very friendly. The only downer was the waitress at breakfast, she was a bit sour. I would definitely stay there again.

The Tara Suite was beautiful, clean and we were upgraded at no extra cost. The food was very well presented and always delicious. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a very relaxing midweek break. I would highly recommend Tara Hotel to everyone.

Small hotel but superb value. Great size room with lovely views. Huge bathroom and lovely modern decor. Dinner in restaurant was outstanding, staff were so lovely, carpark very convenient as no fees needed. Was here for work, but really enjoyed stay and definitely recommend this hotel for business and leisure travelers.
