“Comfortable Hotel with wonderful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2012

Stayed for a night at Menlo Park in early January ( return visit). Everything was first class . The staff were wonderful and the room was spotless and cozy. It was very warm in the room and I see this is a feature of the compliments/ complaints of other guests. It should be possible to turn off the heat altogether sometime during the night and have it come on early in the morning.The cost to the Hotel must be enormous. I like the easy parking at the Hotel and from earlier visits I know the food is very good indeed in this Hotel.

Room Tip: ask and you shall receive......

Dear ConnemaraFlyer

Thanks a million for the great review and for the encouragement to sort out the heating issues.
We have installed new systems and it has needed some tweaking. That with the changeable weather may have resulted in too much heat. Thankfully we have now addressed that.
We are so pleased that your overall experience of the hotel, the food and the staff is so positive and we really appreciate your feedback.
"Warm" regards :)

Stayed in Menlo Park Hotel just before New Years. It was a fabulous few days as the staff were so helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The food in the restaurant was excellent with loads of choice and even catered for those with dietary needs. I would recommend this hotel to all my friends if they are heading to Galway and I will certainly be back.

Thanks for the great review. You touched on a couple of points which we are delighted about.
We have just luaunched a new restaurant menu which is going down really well and in particular our bar menu for example is 80% gluten free which is going down so well with everyone .. not just people with alergies. We are coeliac friendly and adhere to strict procedures in the preparation of food.... We hope to see you again in 2012.

My husband and i stayed at this hotel for a weekend. The hotel is very clean and rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The food in bar and restaurant was really nice and reasonably priced. Hotel is not far from city. This would be my second time to stay in this hotel and i would definitely go back in the future.

I stayed here with a friend on a B&B deal that Lidl were running. I thought the hotel was great. The staff were very professional and friendly and very accommodating.
The room was clean and comfortable, a little bit too warm but they have a notice saying you can turn the heat down. I should have turned it off as 3 was still too warm.
Our room was on the 1st floor and you could hear the noise from the bar but that didn't bother us at all as we were out until late and it was all quiet when we got back. But if you're an early to bed person you might want to ask for a 2nd floor room.
The breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice. It was a buffet with all the usual stuff... sausages, rashers, tomatoes, mushrooms or cereals, scones, fruit etc. You could also order from a menu with smoked salmon, different kind of eggs, pancakes etc. The only bad point would be that the bread rolls were too tough to eat but the brown bread was nice.

All in all, a pleasant stay, just close enough to the city.
I would stay here again.

Room Tip: The heating goes up to 5. Turn it right down to 1 or 0 as it's very warm still on 3. If you go...

Thank you very much for your posting. it is good to hear that you would stay with us again.
We do get a lot of good comments about our Omelettes and pancakes and our gluten free foods.. So pleased you enjoyed your breakfast.. We have music in the Bar every Friday and Saturday from 10.30 - 12.30 a.m. and some of the rooms are over the bar so if you want a quieter room, you are quite right, it is better to ask for a 2nd floor room to the front of the hotel.
We are also working on getting some new boilers bedded in properly as we have been having issues with the regulators on them.

Thanks again....

This was our fourth visit to Galway and our second stay at this hotel. We chose this hotel as we are non-drivers but enjoy walking. The hotel is a pleasant 20min walk to the city centre or a 5min taxi ride. Arrival at reception was a pleasant friendly experience. Reception staff had us checked in quickly. Our room was a spacious superior room on the 2nd floor. The welcome handbook had useful information about the local area and emergency contacts if needed eg doctors etc. A sample food menu if included would have been beneficial.We enjoyed the fresh fruit, water, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits in our room most enjoyable. Room service and cleanliness first class. We ate at the hotel and found the food really good and reasonably priced. We felt safe and secure when the hotel was busy as there was security staff ensuring the safety of guests. All staff were very friendly and attentive to our needs. Special mention to Maeve for helping us with our mobile phone company. Michelle for helping with our dining experience. John W and Conor for excellent bar service. We also enjoyed the "craic" with the locals. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Stay on 2nd floor

Great hotel. The staff were very friendly and extremely attentive. Room was very clean and had everything you'd expect from a four star. The food deserves special mention; dinner was fantastic. Breakfast was served fresh rather than being from a buffet which was a welcome surprise. Overall the hotel was great value and was a great base to enjoy a fantastic city. Have been in Galway several times and I would recommend this one over all; the others.
