Great hotel. Restaurant wait staff needs help
Overall a great night at the Ambassador. Front Desk staff was very helpful. Room and the food exceeded expectations. Downside was the wait staff in the restaurant. Slow and obvious come to mind. We were there for a late dinner and breakfast the next morning with the lack of service being the same.

Top of the hill!
Odd location. Not enough parking for hotel guests, especially with other events going on at the time. Rooms could be updated or at least given a fresh coat of paint. Our room was very nice but could have used a face-lift. The staff was exceptional.

Not as impressive as the photos
Not as impressive as the photos. No thermostat in room so had to leave windows open. Location is a bit removed from main street shopping and dining. Desk staff forgot to give us our wake up call (luckily I didn't have a good feeling about them so I used my phone - good thinking).

Beautiful hotel at the top of a hill with great views of Cork . The restaurant was great The building is old as is was a former military hospital. It has a lot of character. The staff was excellent

Ten minute walk to the city center. Old antique hotel very pretty. People were very nice around the town. No central heat or air so had to open the window to make it cool
