“Welcoming and comfortable”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

We are driving around Ireland so the location of Menlo Park was perfect for us. It has ample car parking and a very convenient and frequent bus into Galway City nearby. In summer and race week we did not want to drive right into the centre! We booked a classic twin room that was spacious with a large bathroom with bath. The tea making facilities with complimentary biscuits, chocolates and water was appreciated after a long day of travelling. We ate in the restaurant and found the menu selection and wine list very good. Overall a traditional and good quality hotel.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had an amazing time. The room was fabulous and all the little extras made it that extra special. The décor of our room was top class and the bath alone was just excellent. The food was nice and I found this hotel extremely professional and we will deffinately be returning. The area was perfect, and the staff at reception were more than happy to accomodate us. Room service was just excellent and the bedrooms staff were extremely professional and very friendly, providing us with clean towels and everything, even on the day we did not wish for the room to be cleaned. I have recommended this hotel to everyone and we can not wait to go back.

When the booking reference said that our room was above the function room and was not refurbished yet I was a little anxious about what may have lain in store. I was however pleasantly surprised that the room was to quite a decent standard and that we were not troubled by the wedding functions that took place below us on the Friday and Saturday of our stay.
I have to commend the staff whom I found particularly helpful, friendly and courteous. We went into town each evening by bus, which departs from a stop a few yards from the hotel. A taxi back each evening saw us safely in. We found our stay to be very pleasant, the breakfast was served buffet style and the freshly baked scone bread was wonderful and the banana bread was terrific. Although on the edge of town,
we found the hotel to be a great base for our weekend visit, it was easy to get to the town centre and at the same time it allowed straightforward access to the road network for our visits to Cong and Knock. I would certainly go back again to the Hotel.

We stayed here for 2 nights half board in early July. The staff on reception were welcoming and efficient and getting us checked in. We had a room on the second floor which was spacious and well appointed. Not much of a view as it was overlooking the back of the hotel but that wasn't a problem for us.
Breakfast was good and the service was excellent although on one occasion we were left waiting for the food to be cooked but I doubt that this the norm.
The bar has two large rooms and tended to be a little dark for our liking but the bar food was excellent.
Car parking at the front of the hotel is a little bit limited and appeared to always be very full but I think that more parking is available at the back of the hotel.
This hotel is ideally located for touring the mid-west area of Ireland as road access to the hotel appeared to be very easy.

Dear ChrisGandTheBean,

Thank you for taking the time to review us following your recent stay with us at the Menlo Park hotel.

I am delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and were very happy with the food in our bar and also our breakfast. I am thrilled that you found our staff friendly and helpful and found the hotel to be conveniently located.

I do apologise for any delays you experienced in waiting for breakfast to be cooked and for any inconvenience caused in finding car parking to the front of the hotel, that is right in saying there is also free car parking at the back of the hotel.

I will pass on your kind comments to the rest of the team.

If you are back in Galway again we would be delighted to welcome you back.

Warm regards

Stayed 2 nights during our stay in Ireland, good food in the Bistro and staff very helpful. A bit out of the city centre if you wanted to walk out in the evening, but the taxi wasn't expensive. Rooms very roomy, but found they hot water could have had a bit more warmth.

The room was very comfortable, bathroom was large enough,
modern flat screen TV and save was integrated. We loved the tasty breakfast buffet.
It seems the perfect place for relaxing after sightseeing tours around the country of Ireland.

Fantastic trip, service was great and accommodating, providing a vegan menu at relatively short notice. This was my second visit to Menlo Park hotel, and if anything the hotel has only gotten better!!
