Tara Lodge is tucked away on a street off the main drag in a mainly residential area of Belfast, close to Queen's University. This means lots of students, but we visited during uni holiday season,. so lots of to-let signs in adjoining property windows.
First impression of Tara Lodge is modern, clean and efficient. Definitely more of a hotel than a B&B.
Service at reception is very good and lives up to efficient expectation.
Couldn't help feeling it could have been a tiny bit warmer, though, to fit with the traditional Belfast bonhomie.
Room was lovely, luxuriously appointed, apart from tv, which was quite small and mounted in a frame in the wall, some distance from the bed. The remote's batteries must thave been run down, as iit struggled to cope.
We also discovered a DVD player nestled into a bedside cabinet, hooked into the tv.
Free wireless internet over all of hotel worked well with my iPhone,
Bed very comfortable indeed.
Iron and ironing board supplied in room.
Thick curtains ensured good blackout for decent night's sleep.
Good range of quality toiletries in bathroom. Decent power shower and bath
Breakfast was delicious with excellent range of food available, Hot breakfast freshly cooked to order.
Apart from breakfast there is no restaurant, but just round the corner, back on main drag, there arelots to choose from, or you could make a trip into town,
Location is 15-20 minutes gentle stroll to city centre, or few quid in a taxi.
