Good location with free parking. 40 mins walking to city centre. Close to restaurants. The hotel room is spacious and old. There were 2 soap dispensers but completely empty in the bathroom . My pillow had stains all over.

Great last minute booking!
Booked 2 nights at the Ambassador at the relative last minute in order to have a place to crash at night nearby to where some of my friends live that I was up for over New Year's to visit. Considering the time of year and how late I left booking this the price I was offered was great! When I arrived there, reception was a little late in tending to me (rang the bell several times and no one showed up ... had to go behind the desk and knock on the 'Staff' door to get someone's attention) but outside of that the gentleman was very friendly and accommodating. My room was very clean and warm, the bed was very comfortable (no lumpy mattress), bathroom was also very clean with a comfortably large shower and the general room service was excellent. Considering I paid roughly £66 for these 2 nights over New Year's of all times ... I will *definitely* be returning here in the future when I need a place to crash near my friends! Highly recommended!
