So long as your expectations are in line, you will find the Sandringham a great option. This is not a fancy chain hotel. It may be old but it is comfortable and the staff is wonderful. Plus, you are getting an amazing deal on what is probably the best location in the city center. The hotel and rooms definitely show... More

tired room/decor. Uncomfortable beds like sleeping on concrete, one of the beds had a bad repair done to the base. Soundproofing required to the windows all you can hear are people outside all night long. All in all not a very nice hotel in need of a full refurbishment!!

I am very sorry Neil that you have not enjoyed your stay. I will get the bed base checked and repaired or replaced in the room that you stayed. It is disappointing that you did not feel that the price charged was value for money. This is what we at least strive to offer. I will use your comments to... More

Booked to stay directly with the hotel for 2 nights and got a great price B&B. Had communication a few weeks before from the hotel to state that there was a function on in the hotel the first evening that would be over by 1am so they couldn't guarantee any rooms would be quiet. The function was loud, but at... More

Don't be fooled by the non-chain appearance of the Sandringham hotel - it may lack the standard-fare foyer of a large chain hotel and it certainly has a unique charm since it's an older building but the rooms are well appointed and comfortable and there is a big, deep bathtub and a good quality shower in the twin-bed room I...

Friendly service. 'Tired' decor but clean and everything working. Did not have breakfast this time but that has been very acceptable in the past. Right in the city centre, less than 10 mins walk from Cardiff Central Rail station and the bus station. So you get what you pay for, really.

This was my first trip to Cardiff with my son his partner and their 2 month old baby. We booked a triple room and requested a quiet one, this was honoured by having one right at the top of the hotel, it was really quiet, no outside or inside noise at all. My bed was in a little cubbyhole so... More

Although a little tired in décor it's location and price make it a good hotel for a quick visit to central Cardiff. The staff were very helpful and the proximity of the Westgate car park was a great help. They also provided a reduction on the overnight parking fee. Would stay here again.

Stayed in the Sandringham to visit my daughter who is in uni in cardiff. I arrived early, so my room wasn't ready but the receptionist said I could leave my bag there. Later I went back to check in, I was on the top floor, I had only booked a single room but next time I will book a double.... More

My son and I stayed here as we were in Cardiff for a concert. It's very convenient, being only a few minutes walk from the station and concert venue. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was spotless (decor a little "tired") and very comfortable. We had a room at the back, which was nice and quiet.
