The location is excellent. The Hotel is clean, staff is friendly. The rooms need improvement. The staircase is narrow and the very steep. Avoid to bring heavy luggage. Breakfast ist average. The rather cheap price reflects the quality of the hotel.

The nice thing about the hotel is its location, which is a five-min walk from the central rail station. Breakfast is nice and the elder lady in the restaurant is very friendly! The hotel itself is a total disappointment! no lift and the stairs are tricky! Wifi didn't work at all! At least in the room I stayed on the... More

Thank you for your review and for staying with us. It was very nice to meet you. I am so sorry that the WI-Fi was poor when you stayed. It was as you say, very disappointing. I was also struggling to work with it and found it very frustrating. I am assured that it will improve immensely in September 2014... More

I was in search of a hotel near the train station and city centre, that wasn't too pricey, and I got exactly that from the Sandringham. WiFi and a restaurant downstairs (with discounts for guests) were perks, as were the very friendly owners. Location is great and leaves you in the heart of everything you could need and want from...

We stayed here for a weekend girls birthday stay. The location is brilliant right in the centre of town and a few minutes walk from the station. Room was spotless and comfortable, it was boiling so welcomed the fan provided. Nice clean towels and water tea and coffee, everything needed for an overnight stay. Gorgeous full English breakfast, pleasant staff,... More

I booked this hotel as we were going to Cardiff University Open day and wanted an hotel within walking distance of the Uni as well as in the middle of Cardiff so we could get a flavour of the city to help our daughter decide on the Uni.

My room was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Even posting my phone charger back to me after I'd left it behind. It's a 2 star and the decorations a-little worn but it's ideally located for the centre of town and easy to walk to from the bus station and university where I had a course.... More
