This 4 star hotel is literally at the top of a hill! It's a 10 minute walk down town but it's all uphill trek back! The car park is quiet small and we had to park out on the road until the evening which wasn't a problem. The staff in the hotel were very pleasant and helpful. Our room had...

We stayed at the Ambassador for 1 night as we visited Blarney Castle and the distillery in Middleton. We didn't have much time to see the city and the front desk receptionist helped us outline how to make the most of our time. The restaurant was the nicest surprise. The food was amazing! We are vegetarian and the cusine options...

Myself and my partner stayed here recently and really felt a warm feeling as soon as we arrived😊. Our room was a standard double, was very comfortable☺️. 1 small tiny thing though. Was absolutely baking when we walked into the room. Easy fix for us. We just turned off the radiators and did not need to turn them on for...

Went for a weekend away from my grown up children with my wife to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed for two nights and the peace was bliss. The room was clean and comfortable and surprisingly spacious. Had two great sleeps and came home very refreshed.

Booked 2 night stay at the Ambassador Hotel Cork. This trip included flights with Ryan Air from Stansted Airport and a tour of the Jameson whiskey distillery. The trip exceeded expectation. The hotel was beautiful. Freshly decorated to a high standard. Staff were friendly and helpful. The Jameson experience was interesting in a beautiful building and make sure you visit...

A grand, Victorian, ex-hospital (for 'Protestant Incurables' apparently). 15 min walk downhill to the centre of the city. Receptionists were helpful and friendly as were waitresses. We had coffee on the terrace on arrival; the terrace is a sun-trap and warm enough to sit outside even on a November morning (but we were lucky to have good weather). Room (a...

Was at a friends wedding lately and have mixed feelings about the experience. The food was only passable. The length of the service was unbelievably long. Sat down before six and didn't finish till after 9.30. Mains were nice, sides were cold and many were sent back, presumably to be microwaved. Staff worked hard but could not make up for...

Dear Billypix, It is with regret I have read your review on Trip Advisor. My regret is based on the fact that you did not enjoy your time at the wedding and secondly that I do not believe it is a true and fair reflection of any of the weddings we had in October. Firstly there was no wedding in...

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.
