We had rooms starting with 22x numbers, meaning in the back wing of hotel. Room was nice and comfortable, big bathroom, window was... More

My boyfriend actually emailed them days in advance to ask would they get our room ready a little bit early as we would be arriving early. Our room was ready by 11 am and we were able to check in...

We parked in the lot in front of the hotel, walked up small flight of stairs to the next tier of the parking lot, and then up the stairs leading to the entrance of the hotel. The lobby was exquisite. The marble flooring was a checkboard pattern. There’s the concierge desk to the right while a small seating area. To... More

Stayed in the Ambassador Hotel for 2 nights this week.I was pleasantly surprised at what I found,. The receptionist was a great first impression, helpful and considerate . Room was large and spotlessly clean, comfortable bed and pillows. Food was excellent and varied with the fish dishes as fresh as could be. I would definitely return to the Ambassador Hotel,... More

Really enjoyed our stay. Eoin and his team are doing a great job on all fronts. The rooms are really comfortable and the new decor is stylish and really suits the grand old building. The views over Cork are amazing. The food at McGettigans was the highlight of our holiday. Don't miss the chowder. And all the staff are cheerful... More

I wouldn't stay at this hotel again. I was surprised to find the hotel had no air conditioning. We stayed during August and the only way of cooling the room was by opening a small window. The receptionist (Alexandra) was very rude, sarcastic and argumentative with me when I complained about the hot room. She suggested I should have paid... More

Stayed for my birthday weekend away. Hotel room had a balcony with great view down over the city. Decor was sumptuous, with huge retro design wallpaper, reupholstered seats, which I presume were with the hotel from its beginning, in green and orange. Which worked. The room was clean, shower worked fine. T.v not great for watching from the bed, but... More

This was Truly the best hotel visit I have experienced. The hotel has character and welcomes you to Ireland with open arms. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The on-site restaurant was remarkable. I think tried to eat everything on the menu! Thank you for the wonderful relaxing visit. This was a true premier experience.

This hotel is a hidden gem. You are a 5 to 10 minute walk to Corks main shopping centre with lots of bars and restaurants. The hotel has been recently renovationed and if you are lucky enough to get a room with a balcony, you will have great views over the city. This hotel suites both work and leisure visits..
