Out of town but easily accessible. The hotel is located to the North of the city and is up a slight hill but do not let this put you off. The place is fantastic and the staff couldn't be nicer. The setting is overlooking the town and rooms are spacious and very well maintained. The food is first class as... More

My family and I stayed in the ambassador for the Easter weekend and we had an amazing time. The hotel has recently been refurbished and was looking very stylish.

I only wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel is lovely. Our room was very large, and had a small balcony with an incredible view of Cork. The flowers and grounds around the hotel are also beautiful. Adequate, safe, free parking. We ate dinner in the restaurant, and it was very good (both breakfast and dinner). The service in... More

Remember, walking downhill is easy! Don't blame the hotel, getting back may be a challenge for older legs! Nothing a few pints can't solve. Great rooms and great views as long as you get the south facing side toward the city and river. Was very happy with food and service. Best hotel we stayed at on our trip to Ireland.

Had a great time in this hotel. Very nice and helpful receptionists. Breakfast was good. The only thing that I fault is the hill from the city centre to the hotel. We had to get a taxi every time to go back to the hotel. We think that the lift needs seeing to. We got stuck in it and the... More

There has always been a lovely welcome and wonderful service in The Ambassador. The hotel is after getting a face lift and it is just so pretty and comfortable.

Hotel just had its makeover.. They were painting all around me whilst I was there.. I have no idea what the old reception area was like and noted previous comments on TripAvisor re "tired" hotel. Stayed in room 102. Newly painted of course!. Which was excellent and lovely views from the front window. We arrived around 10.30 AM a bit... More
