The Ambassador Hotel is a bit of a Cork institution. It is a steep but short wall from Cork city centre. It has the most fantastic views over the city as it is perched on a hill.
I have stayed many times on business and it has always served me well. Plenty of easy parking and good internet access throughout the hotel.
You have to talk to Don the night porter. He is truly one of a kind. A philosopher and a great conversationalist. Not too many like him exist in sanitised hotel chains. More is the pity I say!
The front of house staff are excellent and more than make up for the hesitant lifts in the building.
I love this hotel. Do some work and savour the atmosphere. There is no Arctic air con and no piped muzak. Major plus points in my book.
Say hello to Don...you can't miss him. He has a great welcome for all.
