“Excellent two night stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

My wife and I recently stayed at this hotel for the first time. From the moment we walked through the door to the moment we left it was lovely. Very friendly helpful staff, comfortable and spacious room with all we could want. Nothing too much trouble. Food in both bar and restaurant excellent and staff very courteous and helpful. Will certainly recomment this hotel, and look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: First floor nice and quiet, even though our room - 109 - overlooked the roundabout nearby.

I have eaten in the Menlo Park on numerous occasions and I have to say it is amazing. They have a massive gluten free menu in the bar and also in the restaurant. Well worth a visit if you are in Galway.

Dear Grimskull 2010
Thank you very much for the great review about our food and in particular about the Gluten Free menu .. yes 90% Gluten free and we do get a great reaction form clients about this. So many people say it is so good to be able to go out and relax knowing that there is such a good choice.
Thanks again sincerely for highlighting this .. we look forward to continuing to welcome you!

We chose this hotel to break our journey as it was 2 hours from Dublin and 1 hour from Westport. It is well situated on the junction of the M6 and N84 and although near enough for a quick trip to Galway centre by bus or car , we were able to avoid rush hour traffic on our departure . Our room was clean , comfortable and had everything we needed . As we had to leave at 7.15 am we did not avail of breakfast but we could have had it at 7am if we so wished . Checkout was quick and efficient . Altogether a good choice .

My wife and I stayed in the Menlo Park over St Patrick's weekend. This was our second time staying in the Menlo Park. This is an excellent hotel in a great location, just a 20 minute walk to Eyre Square. The staff are fantastic, the rooms are excellent, there is very little that we could fault the hotel for.

The only inconvenience that we experienced was that the band playing in the bar were quite loud. Our room was on the second floor and was located on the opposite side of the hotel from the bar but we could still hear the band. While the two bus loads of American tourists seemed to be enjoying the band, my wife and I were not so keen on listening to Galway Girl at midnight. The bar is quite small and I am sure that the atmosphere would still be retained by attenuating the band's noise level.

This was a minor inconvenience for us which the excellent overall service more than made up for.

recently went to stay in the menlo park hotel the hotel was handy just to just park car up and leave . the hotel itself as you walked through the door was lovely, the staff where fab and couldnt do enough for you, which was another bonus. the room was plain but very comfortable which had everything you needed in it,tea and coffee factilities, wardrobes,drawers table with chairs ensuite batroom with pleny of hot water, and plenty of heat, which you could have lay on top of the bed as was so warm, which was great
the barstaff in the hotel was lovely,but the bar could do with a bit more colour and a make over but no other complaints, the food was gorg and breakfast was toooo.
we left the car and walked about five mins up the road where was dunnes stores another few mins on up was another big shopping complex... so if you were a shopper you had plenty to choose from...
galway city was a good fifthteen min walk into the centre which we did do twice a day, which i would say a nice we walk, but if you have problems walking would be a bit far . we then walked one day out to salthill which was another good half an hour walkfrom the city centre, but you can take a taxi or bus but as wee had great weather we walked
there is pleny to see and do and a great we museam which was free to go into...
another great wee bar was garavans bar which was friendly and served a great pint of guinness located on willams street worth a wee call in ......
we had a great and pleasent stay... will be back

Room Tip: we were at the side of the hotel which the road passed to the roundabout but never heard the noises...
