Wonderful place to stay!
We stayed in the annex part of Tara lodge for three nights, which is located next to the main part of the hotel through a separate key card door. The man on reception upon our arrival was incredibly helpful, giving us a map of Belfast and talking through some of its highlights, recommending to us several good places to eat out during our stay. We had a front and back room, both of which were clean and comfortable. The rooms were cleaned, and tea supplies replenished each day, including bottled water. The breakfast we had each morning was delightful. There was a good choice including cereals, pastries, yogurts and fruit as well as a choice from a hot menu. All cooked to order and served fresh and hot, with no waiting around for too long. There was tea, coffee, water and fruit juices available to drink. However, if you have nothing else for breakfast, you should definitely try their Power Porridge with honey and banana. (They also do a berry compote and a nip of whiskey variety) It was amazing and definitely helped set us up for the day. The staff in the breakfast room, which is cosy and clean, couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. The lady on the desk upon our departure helped immensely, as we weren't leaving until the afternoon, so kept our luggage for us and also booked us a taxi for later that day. This meant we could make the most of our last day going around Belfast again!
Tara lodge was well located a few minutes walk from the metro station and is very easy to find. Also being 15/20 minutes walk from the city centre itself. There are also plenty of good places to eat in the vicinity, with something for everyone.
If you are looking for a reasonably priced, fantastic hotel for a stay in Belfast, look no further. You won't be disappointed, we certainly weren't. If we were to visit Belfast again, there is no doubt we would stay here.
All in all a first rate stay, in a good location with friendly staff, and a great breakfast!
