“Excellent accommodations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

My girlfriend and I stayed just one night in the Menlo Park Hotel. But everything was perfect in that short time. The room was spacious and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. The dining room provided us with a lovely dinner after a long day of driving to and from the Cliffs of Moher.

We were warned while booking that we were above a function room and might hear noise. But this didn't prove to be an issue at all. (Maybe because it was a Tuesday night.)

The only downside I could mention is that the hotel doesn't seem to have a street number. Upon our arrival in Galway, our GPS couldn't locate the exact location of the hotel, leaving us having to ask for directions in a cafe. Thankfully, we were only about a two-minute drive away. If you are using a GPS to find your way, it would be wise to look closely at a map of Galway first so that you can do some maneuvering once you arrive in town.

It was my boyfriends birthday, and we stayed a Saturday night here. The hotel itself was warm and homely, and the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was excellent with lots of variety, and gluten free bread available. The hotel also provided a hand written birthday card and chocolates for my boyfriends birthday, which I thought was a really nice touch. Over all it was a great experience.

Stayed recently for two nights. Extremely pleasant staff and very comfortable rooms. Convenient location with parking. We did not eat in the hotel except for breakfast, and judging by this we have no doubt that their other meals would be just as good.

Stayed for 2 nights in a superior room, which was real quality. I have stayed in many 5* hotels around the world and not many can improve on the Menlo Park. Did not have evening meal so cannot comment but breakfast good. Stayed in a so called 4* hotel in Dublin on a 3rd night this could not touch the Menlo park for quality.

We've stayed at Menlo Park on several occasions and have never been disappointed. This time we did an upgrade to one of the Superior rooms and were really pleased with all the amenities and the lovely décor. We like the fact that it is located just outside the city which makes for a quieter atmosphere. The staff at reception are always friendly and willing to give directions when you need help. Our dining experience was also good. I loved the coffee beans and tea lights in a glass on our table--nice artistic touch. I only have one tip especially for travelers from the States, bring your own face cloth (washcloth) as these are not provided--maybe something to do with green or eco friendly status. It's only a small item and should not put anyone off from staying at this great place.

We have stayed in the Menlo Hotel on a few occasions , we always find the staff very helpful and friendly. We find the hotels location prefect for our needs as it's only a short walk into town and there is a bus stop at the entrance that takes you into town. The food is very good and the services is excellent. Car parking in one of the reasons we will be going back to the Menlo as it's not underground and therefore it's easier to access and it's free. We are looking forward to our next trip which was booked right after we returned home, can't wait!.
