Overlooked to ask for non smoking and only let reception know as we checked out that we had a smoking room

Booked this hotel for my parents as a christmas present. I was so un happy to hear they did not enjoy the break at all in this hotel. The Food was so bad that they had to go else where after there meal. Would never book this hotel again

The hotel was excellent, the staff were very friendly, prices were reasonable and the entertainment was superb. We had an excellent weekend and would most definitely stay here again.

Great rail service to Galway and a short hop on local bus from Eyre Square to Hotel. Terrific hotel, absolutely great service, very helpful and friendly staff, looking forward to a return visit. So impressed with Menlo Park Hotel that I have organized a "short stay " as a wedding present for some friends of mine

I recently stayed just for one night it was just a mini break and to go to christmas markets in eyre square. Absolutely lovely hotel, the staff really friendly and helpful everyone of them from reception, waitress, bar staff, cleaning staff all very well trained. One was always greeted with a smile. The room was so lovely very cosy everything was clean and all the facilities you would need. Food first class our deal was b & b and evening meal very good value. I must mention there delicious homemade brown bread. It is in a great location only about 15 minutes leisurely walk to Eyre Square and plenty of shops within 10 mins walk. Looking forward to going back there again. Highly recommended.

Myself and my wife decided on the Menlo Park Hotel, we hadn't been before but enjoy Galway and its laid back surroundings. The website looked very professional and there were some nice pictures of the rooms. My verdict was that the room itself surpassed my expectations, being quiet and spotless clean with a big en suite and shower. Flat screen TV with a range of channels to view. Very comfortable bed with nice view. The staff were tentative and professional to our needs and the food in the Menlo park was very tasty and reasonable on the pocket. We have stayed in other hotels during our stays in Galway but will certainly come here again and would recommend to others planning a visit to Galway. Dave Tullamore

Fantastic staff at all levels make this hotel memorable! We got an upgrade to an executive suite which was really lovely. The bar food and breakfast comprised excellent quality ingredients, well cooked and nicely presented.The hotel's location is great (Friday's afternoon traffic notwithstanding!), we are looking forward to another break soon.

We availed of a competitive two night midweek break deal there earlier this week, with breakfasts and a dinner included, and have no complaint whatsoever, even to be initially praise-stingy. The rooms were spacious, well furnished, well serviced and spruce. The staff were universally friendly, efficient, professional and accommodating. The food and drink provided for breakfasts and our three course dinner was of a very good standard. The location of the hotel is handy for arrival and exploring outside the city while also usually being convenient for Galway city centre, and we were undisturbed by noise. (Do watch out however for bad Galway City traffic - they were/are doing highly disruptive roadworks on the critical Bodkin roundabout there - and do expect to pay Dublin-level hourly parking prices if thinking of taking a car into town - those things obviously being no reflection on the hotel though). All in all, a big thumbs up for the Menlo Park, based on our experience.

great hotel very warm and comfortable, great food. Staff were very helpful.

by david webster on Feb 26 2013 23:38

simply 2 days of pure bliss the hotel and its staff were top ten.

by Imre on Feb 11 2013 11:42

The Hotel is located walking distance from the city, so you can park your car at the hotel and you can just enjoy the city. The food was excellent , or even more , congratulations for the chef. The staff were very friendly and knowledgable and we did enjoy our stay there. The room was spacious and beautiful, the furniture was brilliant, just what we need. The only negative moment is that the walls our paper thin, so we could listen to the TV which was on in the other room when we were about to get some sleep. Thankfully they stopped watching TV at 1am , so everything was all right than. I would highly recommend this hotel during peek season due the walls, but I wouldn't go there at Summertime when every single room is taken.

I stayed in Menlo Park Hotel in January 2013 my stay was most enjoyable, staff were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast was superb. The hotel is quite close to the city centre and a short drive to salthill I would stay there again.

by Oliver Durnin on Jan 14 2013 16:08

M McGhee booked 2 rooms on a short city break. Stayed at the Menlo Park Galway for three nights 18th-20th Oct 2011 On entering the hotel we found it to be pleasant and relaxing with a nice atmosphere. Greeted at check-in by Gina who was very pleasant and welcoming. Check-in was smooth and quick. We were allocated rooms on the 2nd floor which were clean,comfortable and well appointed. The bar area is very pleasant and a nice place to relax. This is used by many locals which is usually a good sign. We ate in the bar which provides a good menu. The standard of the food and presentation was very good. The service in the bar was extremely good and always with a genuine smile. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Breakfast was good. A good choice on offer and different diets catered for. The standard of food was very good and the staff very pleasant which helped start the day off well. The location of the Hotel is close to a busy roundabout but inside the Hotel you would never be aware of this. Galway City is approx. 1 mile. Once you have crossed a couple of busy roads it is an easy 15-20 min. stroll along a straight road or a 10 euro taxi ride. The City itself has plenty to offer and gives a safe comfortable feeling day or night. All in all this was very enjoyable and very good value for money. Nothing about this Hotel could be faulted and the staff are credit. Whenever we come back to Galway,which we will,the Menlo Park will be our preferred Hotel.

great hotel, clean comfortable rooms, quiet location, only ate breakfast here and they had fish on the menu for breakfast so i was more than happy, would have loved tomato juice tho, would highly recommend this hotel and will stay here again

<p>hi very happy with the hotel the staff were excelent &amp; very friendly food was very good overall excellent will go back tommy.</p>

by ger on Dec 15 2010 12:00

<p>Staff make you welcome from the first minute you get there. Excellent service at all times. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone - rooms are clean, warm, and very spacious. My only complaints with this hotel are - 1) you need to hire a taxi at EUR8 a journey to get in and out of the city centre if you want to drink and socialise in the city centre. 2) It doesn't have a leisure centre - although there is an arrangement with another hotel that does have one, but the distance can be offputting.</p>

<p>I recently stayed in the Menlo park Hotel for one night, it was the Friday of the October bank holiday. The service on arrival could not have been any better, we were greeted by a very friendly member of staff at reception. Check in was speedy&amp;efficient, and we were also asked if we needed help with our luggage(even though we only had one small bag each) The room was very spacious-a double room was booked and there was a double&amp;single bed in the room. We had dinner in the bar, and again the staff could not have been more friendly. The food was gorgeous and even though the bar was very busy we were not waiting too long for the food to arrive. Unfortunately we didnt make it down on time for breakfast but I'm sure it would have been to a high standard. Overall my stay in the hotel was definitely 4 star quality, the only downfall is that we only stayed the one night!!! Would 100% recommend this hotel to anyone. </p>

by sidfee on Oct 25 2010 15:40

<p>what a great hotel around a 20 min walk to the town the staff was so nice and it was so cleaning the food was ok but would stay ther again the down side was that the band and enterment was not good at all and was full of men which would be great if you were in you 80 was well worth the money</p>
