It’s always great to get positive news, especially when it’s about one of our own. So when my home from home in Belfast, Tara Lodge won a prestigious award, we had to share it.
Located in the Queen’s Quarter, this boutique hotel has been awarded the Tripadvisor’s Travellers Choice Award 2016, which lists it in the top 25 Hotels in UK, as chosen by Tripadvisor reviewers. Tara Lodge is still the only Belfast hotel to have claimed one of these prestigious Tripadvisor Awards. This accolade is a wonderful kick start to 2016 after a fantastic award winning year in 2015 for the hotel.
Driven by an all-female management team, Tara Lodge has retained the position of No.1 hotel in Belfast on TripAdvisor since 2007 and now getting into the top 25 UK hotels is the icing on the cake.
The hotel is currently in the middle of a refurbishment of all common areas getting ready for a busy 2016. Mindful of all many new hotels opening in the coming years, it is hoping to maintain its position as the ‘David’ among the ‘Goliath’ hotels in Belfast and Northern Ireland. With over 80% of its guests coming from out of state it seems to be flying the flag for Northern Irish hospitality across the world.
