Very good 8.4 From 426 reviews

Very good 8.0
Average Room, could do with more comfort.
Friendly staff, efficient check in and check out. High on high so had good views of the city. Shower took forever to get hot, bed very uncomfortable. No fridge or kettle in room. Very small TV in the wierdest location. Restaurant food was good. Free parking was handy, but probably wouldn’t stay here again, place needs a little TLC.

Exceptional 10.0
Traditional comfort
Built in 1872, the Ambassador is a “grand old dame” overlooking Cork. It has an old school charm, and the staff are very welcoming, as staff in any Irish establishment tend to be. There was a strange and chronic noise emanating from somewhere where near our room, (possibly a ghost) and at 1am we alerted the night porter who immediately offered to relocate us, which led to us spending the night in the Presidential Suite. Wow! Presidents get it good! Also, look out for the dining room bar which, for those who are familiar with the film, The Shining, will feel they’ve walked into the Overlook’s bar. The barman even did the Jack Nicholson stance for a pic. We were very happy to have stayed at the Ambassador and recommend it.
