                9.6

                The staff were extremely friendly, the rooms and general areas were spotlessly clean. The room was huge and well decorated and very well equipped. The food was wonderful.

                Very limited parking

              • Single
                5.4

                The room was spacious

                The wireless connection was terrible, even when sitting alongside the router, and it was therefore impossible for me to send emails, and log onto servers. They did not have a cable for me to connect to the ethernet. There was also no bathplug in the room, and despite asking three times this was never brought to me.

              • Group of friends
                5.4

                Large rooms, Plenty of parking, reasonable dinner menu.

                Pillows a bit hard - uncomfortable. Decor dated and a bit tatty for a 4 star hotel. Dining room had no atmosphere and is closed Sunday & Monday. Weekend functions meen the hotel is full of non resident kids on weekends - including in the bar playin football!

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Its an exellent location. Only 10 minute walk to the city centre, although it is uphill onthe way back but good exercise. The rooms were very spacious and bright. The bed was comfortable. I travel alot and showers in hotel rooms are always complicated and annoy me but the shoer in the Ambassador was simple to use.

                The reception are and corridors look a bit jaded by comparison to the rooms but it would be a lot worse the other way round.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                very friendly and helpful staff, excellent value-for-money food, large comfortable room with a nice view

                uphill walk back from town

              • Couple
                8.8

                The helpfulness of the receptionist as we requested our room to be changed.

                It would suit a couple in their 60's +. It is quite quaint- the lift system is very confusing.

              • Couple
                10.0

                The staff were very pleasant and helpful, the room was unusual and very big considering that we had gotten it on special offer for only 56euros and there were thoughtful touches everywhere like lavender sachets on the pillows, cookies and bottled water and even bath salts in the bathroom - very nice!

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Excellent room, lovely views and nice staff- no complaints.

              • Couple
                7.8

                Great views if you get a room on 2nd floor or higher. breakfast is large and pefectly cooked. No complaints, would come back here anytime.

                If I could change anything I would repair the lift thats old and judders along. It fits the style of thsi great building so should never be replaced or updated.

                10.0

                Our stay in the Ambassador Hotel and Health Club was one of the best experiences during our Irish Holiday. This Hotel over looks Cork giving excellent views for miles, I would stay again.

              • Group of friends
                4.2

                Did not use the Hotel health club.

                Wallpaper falling off the walls in our room, also very slow sevice in the Bistro on one night.

              • Single
                9.2

                This hotel definitely has the wow factor an old world luxury hotel which has been kept to a high standard; my room was spacious, clean, and comfortable with a balcony and amazing view over Cork City. This is now my favourite Cork hotel and I will be returning.

              • Couple
                8.2

                The rooms are incredibly big and spotless. Great view of the city, the river and the hills. Good location, not too far from the city centre.

                A bit too old fashioned and you tend to get lost to reach the room, kind of a labyrinth. Although the location is pretty good, it takes a 15- minute walk to get to the centre. On top of that the way back is uphill.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Almost everything, nice staff, good food and great service.

                Bath towels were very small, not a complaint but an observation

                Beautiful classic building at a hill with a view over Cork. The room was fantastic with a great balcony!

                Location a littlebit outside the city center.
