Stayed for one night with my wife on October 9 2010. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was fine, clean & comfortable. The food was VERY good - both the evening meal and the buffet breakfast. We are looking forward to a return visit

We stayed at the Ambassador Hotel for one night at the end of September. The hotel has a beautiful location with lovely views from the room we had. The staff were all very friendly and the bedroom although a bit cramped was clean and well presented. However, we were unable to get the heating to come on and in the end gave up trying. We could have asked a member of staff to look but by this time we were in our nightwear and felt it wasn't convenient. Anyway it should not have been difficult if the heating was working and there were no instructions. The shower did not heat up properly either. We asked for a morning call but that did not happen.

We booked a double room with sea view. We were given room 308 . Very tired with wall paper peeling off. It was a family room with twin beds pushed together rather than a double/king size bed. No window in the bath room and the shower dripped all night! Heating hardly worked and when we tried to complain to the Duty Manager we were told there was no Manager working all weekend they were on holiday. WE cancelled the second night stay and have booked into a Premier Inn!!

12 of us booked here as we played golf at Southcliff and from the booking (thanks Harriett) to departure we all had a great stay. The rooms were spacious clean with nice views, the service in the bar was relaxed and a good atmosphere and we had bar snacks before we went out which were tasty, well presented and good value. We came back very late and again had good hospitality and breakfast although very busy was tasty and plentiful. Some of us used the pool and sauna which were a nice addition and all the group commented what a great hotel it is. I plan to book again to take my family as the location is great and the service first class!

We booked a standard sea view double room, the only one available at short notice and were very pleased with it. Looks like it had been recently refurbished. The bed was comfy, the view superb and we had a decent strength shower.

The breakfast choice was excellent. You name it, they have it on the buffet, although for us it could have been hotter. The waiter took our order for tea/coffee and toast as soon as we were seated, and by the time we returned from the buffet it was on the table. (Great cup of tea by the way).

We didn't use the restaurant in the evening but had a meal in the bar area, which has a reasonable choice, was very tasty and good size portions.

The hotel is a long walk from the town centre. We like to walk to get a paper in the morning and it was about a half hour round trip.

All in all we really enjoyed our weekend and would definitely return.

The only thing we didn't like was the fact that there was a wedding reception on the Saturday and the evening party went on until 1.00am, and we couldn't sleep because of the thumping beat of the music. It may be as well to check before you book unless you like to stay up late.

We stayed one night in Room 210, a Premier Deluxe room which was really lovely, with massive bay windows giving amazing views over the sea towards South Bay. The room and bathroom were very well equipped. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice. A really nice stay all round.
