This was a unique and well-priced stay, very friendly staff! Our room was up-to-date, the location of it couldn't be better for great cafés, restaurants, pubs and in walking distance to the city centre. We enjoyed our stay, it was free of any inconvenience. We could enjoy the own DVD player in our room, got a baby crib as wished on time of booking. We also enjoyed wonderful breakfast and are sure to recommend Tara Lodge to anyone travelling to Belfast.

We stayed for four days recently in Tara Lodge and just about everything you would ask in a hotel, we found here.
The staff were friendly, the place was spotless and the location is just about perfect, about ten mins walk from Queens and about 15 from the city centre. The university quarter is a lovely area with loads of bars and restaurants, you'd never go hungry around there!
The staff were so helpful too in organising a trip to the Glens of Antrim and a city tour. We would definitely stay again. Well deserving of its excellent Trip Advisor rating.

Stayed in the Tara Lodge for 2 nights, what a pleasure. From the moment you walk through the door when you are welcomed very warmly. The staff cannot do enough for you and are very helpful regarding recommending trips and restaurants etc.

The rooms are very modern and comfortable with a wide screen tv offering freeview and lots of complementary toileteries.

Fantastic breakfast from the full irish to salmon and scrambled eggs and pancakes.

Location is great to in the University district and just minutes walking distance from many restaurants and bars etc.

My advice please book you wont be dissapointed. :)

The welcome at reception was genuinely warm and I was provided with information on where to eat locally. The room was very stylishly furnished and clean with excellent ensuite bathroom and a powerfull shower. Breakfast was generous and good. Can't speak highly enough of the Tara Lodge
