Lovely hotel, full of character and with really friendly staff. I note previous comments suggesting an update to the decor. However, the 70s throw-back style adds to the character and the rooms are spotlessly clean. The staff (both on reception and i the restaurant) are so friendly and make you feel welcome from the moment of first contact and arrival... More

we visit Cardiff regularly from Swansea for concerts at St David's Hall and have stayed in various hotels but tried the Sandringham because of it's central location, parking and near to St David's. This is not a boutique or luxury hotel and is in need of an update but saying that we enjoyed it's ambience and 70's decor. We parked... More

Clean, central and very reasonable rates. Rooms at the back are quieter but midweek there wasn't too much noise at the front. Would definitely stay again. Really helpful and friendly staff, and 24 hr manned reception.

I stayed at Sandringham Hotels for three nights. The staff were very nice and available to serve you to your satisfaction. However, the absence of a lift was a little discomfort. Otherwise, it is okay.

Overall the stay was pleasant, The Sandringham could do with a little TLC regarding decor and cleanliness, it was very dated and tired looking, the staff were incredibly friendly and extremely helpful. If you were to book here ask for a room away from the front and side of the hotel as it can be incredibly noisy regarding the nightlife... More

The Sandringham is a comfortabe hotel with lovely, friendly staff. Meals were very good and the price reasonable. The location is perfect - right in the city centre and only a few minutes walk from the railway station. I slept very well.

Convenient location but located on a busy city centre pedestrianised area. The room was quite dated. The staff seemed to be family run and friendly and the breakfast was good. Speedy check in and check out.

Me and my partner wanted a few days holiday in Cardiff by the end of the month and we had already booked a different hotel but they cancelled our reservation right at the last minute and needed to book somewhere cheap really quickly. When we first went into this hotel it looked fairly elegant and cosy. The receptionist didn't talk... More
