Just one or two negative points regarding our recent two night stay. We stayed in a Signature room (room 9). Very nicely furnished, and I have never slept in a bed that is more comfortable, a joy to get under the duvet. However, my husband and I both like to sleep with the window open as we do not like...

We chose this hotel from reviews that we had read and we are glad we stayed here. I know this is going to sound like all the other reviews but this place is great! Large room, very clean, on site parking, great breakfast and a staff that goes well beyond the call of duty. The people who work care about...

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this well located, impressive venue. Particularly noteworthy was the helpfulness and professionalism of staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Special commendation to Niamh, whose excellent communication with us prior to our arrival set the standard that we experienced throughout our stay. On our arrival, the receptionist spent at least five minutes highlighting on a map...

Just went to Belfast on an overnight stay for business and stayed at the Tara Lodge. The staff are just amazingly friendly from check in to check out. Lovely big clean room with comfy beds. Very central in city. Would stay there again and again.

Instead of using the big chains, use this little gem. Clean, modern and wonderful staff. Will definitely be using again when in Belfast. Also great location for dining out, and a leisurely walk into the centre of around 10 minutes.

Had the pleasure of an overnight in Belfast this week and stayed in Tara lodge as the Hilton was full. I will not stay in the Hilton again if this place has rooms. Spotless rooms, free parking , a great breakfast and most importantly super friendly and efficient staff. Caoimhe in reception deserves a mention for being so helpful to...

This fun little hotel had super friendly and helpful staff as well as being close walking distance from many different restaurants and attractions. This hotel is within walking distance of the Botanical Gardens and glass palm house, Ulster museum and Queens University to name a few! Very friendly and safe area to stay in!

This is my second stay at Tara Lodge and this stay was just as wonderful as the first one. The people there are so nice, the rooms are spotless and the breakfast could not be more lovely. Its on a quiet side street but just a few minutes from everything. The desk staff have endless patience answering questions and giving...

“Rear rooms have some rail noise, but front ones sometimes get high-spirited students rolling past at closing- time. A matter of luck.”
