Friendly, comfortable, clean independent hotel. Welcoming staff who were very friendly. Comfortable clean room with view over street although not noisy even though it was St Patrick's Day and there were plenty of people celebrating. Great freshly cooked breakfast. We will definitely stay again when next in Cardiff

A Nice hotel in the very heart of Cardiff. As a base to stay its very good & i sense at weekends that's what people use it for. Breakfast is ok but you need to pay extra for larger portions.Staff are friendly and the Cafe Jazz next door doesnt seem to busy if you want a meal. Plenty of nice... More

What a warm and lovely welcome at this central Cardiff hotel. The staff are exceptionally helpful, the room was fine (yes, there's no lift and the decor is a little dated) and quiet, and they have a great discount system for the nearest NCP (about three minutes' walk away). I stayed three nights and it was exactly what I needed.... More

First time away for us! We are 21 and went to Cardiff to see the X factor. Chose this hotel because it was a good price, looked nice and was a good location for the Cardiff motor point arena. Friendly staff, nice clean room and lush breakfast! (Happy to cook it, even though we arrived five mins before the restaurant... More

This is the second time that I've used the Sandringham lately. And like before, I have a positive experience to share. The staff are A1. The room was clean and tidy. Everything in the room worked. In short if you're going to a gig/sporting event in Cardiff, this is the place to stay. The only negative experience I had was... More

That's it really. They're really friendly on the front desk and helpful too. I was on the top floor which is a bit of a struggle for me at 25 stone and no lift in the building. They were quite happy to mind a couple of things for me while I went out for the evening though. The location is... More

Room was compact but comfortable. Service excellent from staff. Hot water took a while to get to the bathroom but immediate on shower. Good bed, good drink making facilities and bottled water available. Good size wardrobes. Hair dryer, TV and trouser press. Good breakfast included. No lift so inaccessible for wheelchair users or those with a walking disability. This is... More

This hotel has a great location, right in the centre of Cardiff. It is good value for money as is significantly cheaper than the chain hotels nearby. The staff were helpful and friendly and the room and towels were clean. But the decor and furnishings are shabby and the whole building would benefit from a facelift.
