Loved our stay
As soon as you walk through the door, you know this is a gem of a hotel. The receptionist welcomed us warmly and ever part of the hotel was spotlessly clean. Our rooms were so comfortable that we almost felt as if we were home. The windows open, so you can get some proper ventilation - they are also solidly glazed so you can get a good night's sleep. The breakfasts were superb: beautifully cooked using quality local ingredients. It's easy to get around. You can stroll to the centre of Belfast in under 30 minutes or get a bus. Botanic train station is round the corner. We took direct trains to town, Bangor and Derry. The local area is busy and vibrant. You will be spoilt for choice re restaurants, cafes and bars. The Botanic Gardens, Ulster Museum and Lyric theatre are all walking distance. I would recommend Tara Lodge in a heartbeat.
