Fantastic stay
Fantastic stay at the Ambassador Hotel. Staff helpful and polite. Cooked breakfast was excellent and made the stay more enjoyable. Room was exactly like the photographs. Would book again for another family holiday.

would highly recommend
We were delighted from the moment we checked in: the room, the view, the location, the staff and the breakfast (even the wifi!) exceeded our expectations.

Honest review
I wouldn't really class it as a hotel - more of a b&b with a pool! No bar and no food (other than breakfast). Coffee and vending machine in reception. In need of a refurb. Bathroom could have done with a good scrub. Full length mirror bang opposite toilet which was a bit strange to say the least! Pool area was pleasant. Shame because it could have potential and was obviously quite grand in it's day.

Only vending machines and poor condition
Disappointing. Stayed with my family for a night and the rooms are nothing like on the photos. Yes they are big and we had a great sea view. However the room was in poor condition with rusty towel rails and radiators. Curtains could do with a clean and windows a lick of paint. The swimming pool area was lovely and the breakfast wasn't bad apart form only having instant coffee. The part I cannot excuse is that it doesn't have a bar or a restaurant! Apparently the owner decided to get rid of the bar in January and only have vending machines. For an hotel I find this seriously baffling from business sense - especially when there isn't anything else close by. We paid a lot of money for 1 night - very disappointing.
