    The service from the staff is out of this world and they are all very friendly! The Ambassador Hotel is a stunning hotel to stay at with a great location.

    It has a lovely location.

    They have a daft insistence on booking residents into specific time slots for lunch and dinner, even if they are not fully booked. They seem to have two sittings for each meal, why might be a good idea if they were really busy, but they weren'T. This was a source of frustration for me.

  • Couple

    I enjoyed sitting on the balcony and in the restaurant with the view of the ocean. Very calming and relaxing experience!

    The parking was a very tight squeeze!

    If you looking for luxury this is not it, if you look for a nice place to stay with friendly staff and good location you found it.

    The view and breakfast.

    After I had checked out at 7am, I had a phone call later in the day; 10ish, enquirying when I was going to check out??

  • Couple
    6.6

    The location is fantastic & views spectacular.

    Rooms need updating. Bathroom in Standard room is really small - but clean.

  • Couple

    We were upgraded to a 1 bedroom executive apartment which suited us fabulously. Although the service at breakfast was terrible (will comment below on this), the food itself was very good.

    The breakfast service was terrible. Each morning we would have to wait for service once being seated and one morning even left without getting our coffee which we ordered when we sat down. There is also no sense of urgency with the staff and they seem to be disorganised with the food orders and came to tell us that the docket had been lost and asked what our order was - after waiting for 45 mins already.
