The hotel looks nice from the outside but was far from a four star hotel. The room is small, dated, equipped with the worst bed and pillows I have ever slept on. Bathroom is cramped, shower seals have something like mold on them, soap dispenser was broken, towels were hanged from a heater, and worst of all - the sink...

We are vegetarian and the cusine options...

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.

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. Experience all that Cork has to offer from the luxury of one of the City’s best loved hotels where we feel certain you will want to return again and again. ... more   less
