The Ambassador Hotel & Health Club Cork is now a NON SMOKING HOTEL. Therefore all rooms and guest areas within the hotel are NON SMOKING
Very attentive and helpful staff. The room was a long way from the entrance. The heat wasn't great. The room was well fitted out. The bathroom was a bit small. The hotel is in super location walking distance of Cork City Centre. On the breakfast was just to much food especially the 'fry'.

What a fantastic hotel. The Staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. Receptionists were exceptional and so are the night staff shift. Was conversational and helpful in every way. The rooms were modern,clean and the beds .ie. the mattress was so comfy would love a mattress like that at home! The food was delicious and reasonable in price, the views magnificent and the outside seating area ideal for a lazy sunny afternoon. Overall one of the best hotel stays I have had in a long long time well done! I will be back to stay in the Ambassador asap

Large, well appointed rooms with very comfortable beds (although the pillows were disappointing). We found the staff to be very professional and courteous throughout our stay. While the food was quite good, the menu definitely wasn't 4* standard. Great location.

It's quite some time since I've been to this hotel and I'm delighted to see that it is being upgraded. The new bar/restaurant to the left of reception is fabulous with great views over the city. Whilst we did not eat dinner there, we had a superb breakfast, everything was hot and served with a smile. Our bedroom was a newly renovated one and was very big and spacious - as good as many 4 star hotels I have stayed in. The only downside to the hotel is that the reception area is still dowdy but I guess that will be worked on in due course. Also, it's a bit of a maze getting to the bedrooms depending on which one you are in, we had to take one lift up one floor and then down some corridors before getting another lift up 2 more floors - a minor complaint after a wonderful stay. It's a great hotel for the price and I will return.
