Just getting ready to check out. Had a fab breakfast, great service, spotless room and all the staff are delightful and could not have been more helpful. It's rare to get such a warm, genuine welcome to a hotel. The Tara is a great place. It's a great location as well.

Really enjoyed staying at this little lodge. Ricky the night front desk worker was EXTREMELY helpful and went above and beyond to make sure I planned out my visit and had everything I needed for my stay. The staff is amazing and the location is excellent.

The Tara Lodge is a great hotel, conveniently located close to the centre of the city. The staff were great and very attentive to our needs. We loved the breakfasts which set us up well for full days of sightseeing. Bedroom was great and looked recently renovated.. Bed was comfortable.

Discovering this gem of a small hotel with quality accommodation and outstanding service bang in the university quarter of South Belfast was a revelation to this discerning traveller. It's warm and friendly hospitality, superb breakfast cuisine and luxury facilities will bring me back to stay there on my next visit to Belfast that's for sure.
