Very accommodating breakfast for people with food allergens, very pleasant and helpful waitresses. The lifts were being repaired and the hotel carpark was very busy so was a little stressful but staff were very nice and helpful. Rooms very nice. Had a balcony with great views of cork. Could have thermostats in rooms to control heating,

Stayed in Ambassador Hotel with my husband for a 2 night over 50s package. Receptionist was very friendly and when we got to our room, we had an amazing view over Cork city from the balcony. Even though hotel seems to have been refurbished, I thought our room needed a little TLC i.e. the carpet was old and the furniture...

Our room was huge with a lovely clean bathroom and large balcony with great views of Cork. The front desk was extremely friendly and helpful, and made check in and check out seamless. The restaurant attached had great food and good service. We enjoyed staying here and would recommend it to fellow travelers.

Exceptional from start to finish. The room was spacious, and had a view that was out of this world. The staff were more than accommodating and the food in mcgettigans was top class. Special shout out to Toni the waitress- she kept our child amused! Highly recommend it. Will definitely be back!

Other reviewers have described the hotel as run-down. Not our experience. Obviously, with a building of this age, there were things which could be improved, but overall we felt it was clean, comfortable and well-kept. Our room was a good size with views over the city and the location of the hotel, high up on Military Hill, is a distinct...

Hotel staff extremely accommodating and helpful in the booking process as well as during our stay. Rooms comfy clean with nice decor, and great views of city at night. We really enjoyed the breakfast and dinner in the restaurant. My only complaint would be the wifi didn't work very well in our room - it worked well at reception area...

We have stayed in the Ambassador on several occassions. The staff were always very accomadating and location great. We also like the front balcony rooms and are happy to pay the premium. So it is with sadness that i am writing a not so positive review. This time i have to say they had seemed to lost their focus on...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The impressive facade of this wonderful red brick Victorian building gives any visitor a sense of the rich history of the area and a clear example of 1870’s Irish architecture at its best. It is not surprising therefore to find that The Ambassador Hotel offers quality service, professionalism and the comfort of our guests are at the forefront of our minds at all times. Experience all that Cork has to offer from the luxury of one of the City’s best loved hotels where we feel certain you will want to return again and again. ... more   less
