I've stayed here many times - mainly because it's reasonably priced and I can park my car and walk everywhere I want to go in Cork. This is an important factor in a city where traffic and parking are twin nightmares. It's a venerable old building that's been modernised and if you get a room in the front of the...

We love to stay at The Ambassador when we are in Cork. The beauty of the architecture, interior design of most rooms, and the warmth of the staff -particularly Stephanie and April who both went out of their way for us- are so lovely to be surrounded by in this wild world. The views of Cork from the balconies are...

Beautiful building over looking the city of Cork with attentive well trained and professional staff. Large bright bedroom with a lovely balcony and an excellent selection of fresh foods from the late night restaurant. Excellent modern decor compliments this historic building sympathetically renovated to four star comforts. Well done to all from the warm welcome at reception to the attentive...

Room was spacious , warm and clean. Shower was warm fairly easy to figure out. I ate in the restaurant on the evening and had breakfast following morning and...

This hotel looks amazing from outside and one has to give points for trying with interior decor but ! We were given a suite which was spacious and comfortable with a good view of the city, the staff were friendly & helpful. The service in the restaurant was slow although the staff were friendly there too. We had breakfast in...

If you are looking for a private venue for approx. 40 people, with attentive staff, great food and service then this should be at the top the list. From the moment we met Gillian to discuss our requirements we knew we has selected the right location. The room on the night looked so beautiful and the attention to detail did...

Ended up in this historic property as a result of an airbnb gone wrong, and the price was right. Many holiday parties with cheeky overmakeuped women in the lobby added to the general strangeness of the overall experience. Recent updates to the interior include some zesty wallpapers, and I truly enjoyed the fabulous bathtub (which could have been cleaner). I...
