Reviewed April 11, 2012

We stayed only for 1 night in April, but will definitely use this hotel again when in Galway. From the efficient friendly staff on arrival to the spacious comfortable rooms I cannot fault this place.
We had a few drinks in the bar area before going out and again on our return. Prices cheaper than in city and usual friendly staff again.
Excellent location within walking distance of city and free parking as well. Ideally sited on main drag into Galway.
A 4 star hotel at 3 star prices and 5 star staff.

I stayed at The Menlo Park Hotel from the 23rd to the 25th of March and I have to say that it was excellent. The staff were so helpful and friendly and they catered to my every need. The facilities were great too. My room was very clean and comfortable and very spacious.

The food was gorgeous. I didn't have any complaints with anything in the hotel. I will definitely go back there again.

Room Tip: I found the room that I stayed in was very quiet. There was no noise and I slept soundly.

I don't mean to cause confusion, we did not stay at this hotel but we had a lovely lunch. Service was swift, food was really flavorsome and tasted & looked fresh. It was great value, adults could have a half portion if liked. Homemade fries, looked homemade - nice & large & fresh. Only negativity is they only had one vegetarian option.

Would highly reccomend this hotel. The staff were great and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We were made very welcome and the friendly atmosphere radiated throughout. Its within walking distance of the city centre, with large shopping malls just around the corner. A taxi only costs 7 euro in and out. I cannot say how great of an experience staying here was....We will most certainly be back and are in the process of booking as we speak.

I stayed here with my boyfriend for two nights and we both loved it. We couldn't find a single fault while staying in Menlo hotel. The staff were welcoming and helpful, a special thank you to Conor at reception and also the wonderful restaurant team. We were over an hour late for breakfast but they still made sure that the kitchen was open to us and told us to take our time. The room was amazing- clean, spacious and I don't think I've ever slept so well ! The location was great, took about 15minutes to walk into the city centre and taking a taxi was very cheap. I will definitely stay here again!

My stay at Menlo Hotel was enjoyable from start to finish. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Staff went the extra mile which showed excellent customer service. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The food is yummy. The location is great, not too far from the city centre. I look foward to staying at Menlo again. I highly recommend the hotel!

what sets this hotel apart is the staff. they were on the ball, and after one night you felt like you knew half of them personally. everything else was good. nice rooms, good breakfast.

Room Tip: 10 minute walk to city center - or 20 mins in a cab on a busy night.
