My girlfriend and I had a pleasant three night stay in the Ambassador Hotel Cork. On arrival we were greeted by the receptionist who was kindly accommodating, the only minor fault i would say at this point is that we were not informed of the facilities throughout the hotel. The elevator was very small, they could definitely invest in a... More

I've stayed at Ambassador for 14 days in August 2014. I travelled to Ireland because of my business. The hotel's standarts (cleanliness, room sizes, gym saloon) are higher than usual. And it has a restaurant named Mcgettigan's cookhouse that offers great meals. Prices were average and staff were too hardworking. If you will stay at Cork, you can stay in... More

We booked the Ambassador for three nights but only stayed for two. We arrived late afternoon and were told the room wasn't ready with some excuse that a lot of people had arrived together and they were under pressure, however having read other reviews on this site it seems to be a regular problem. We didn't mind we had a... More

We booked the Ambassador Hotel in Cork through the Lidl breaks. We were presently surprised when we arrived we were upgraded free of charge. We booked two course dinner b&b for five nights. The dinner menu was not at all limited like some hotels when you are on a special deal we had great choice each night. On one of... More

There are no buses to the hotel, so you do have to walk to it from the bus or train station, or take a taxi which will cost about EUR10. From the bus station, you need to cross the bridge, walk down Brian Boru street, turn right into Summerhill North, turn left at the little street called York Street (very... More

My kids aged 6 and 8 thoroughly enjoyed their stay as did we at this hotel. The room 117 was large, clean and comfortable. Hotel Staff were extremely helpful and could not do enough. Arriving early before check in staff were more than happy to store our bags until our room was ready. Part of package, was free tickets to... More

I had dinner last night at the new revamped restaurant and it was just what the doctor ordered. The staff were fantastic, attentive but not overly so and the food was beautiful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for dinner or just drinks.

Based on some other reviews I guess we were lucky. Our room was great, had a great view, and our friend with us had a balcony room. It was quite a ways up & down the hill & no way were we going to walk up & down so we had to avail ourselves of the taxi service whenever we... More

My partner & i stayed at this hotel for the week-end, we found the hotel easily enough, but if your on foot as we were with luggage I'd advise to get a taxi as the hotel is on top of a very steep hill.. Check in was very quick & easy, the ladies on the reception were lovely & very... More
