We so wanted to love this hotel...it looked our sort of place. Beautifully situated above Cork City, in pretty grounds, this historic building in its external presentation exudes elegance and gravitas. Sadly, the interiors are disappointing. Most of the original interior has gone, to be replaced in the main by modern furniture, comfortable, clean yet anemic rooms, and a feeling that the place really needs to find a personality.Toiletries are minimal, and the breakfast adequate, but not special. Where the ambassador scored highly with us was with its staff - pleasant reception and breakfast staff, and a wonderful barman who had the personality and charm that this grand building deserves. With some thought and direction this could be Cork's crowning jewel....but it has a way to go!!.
- 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
