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

Stayed at the Sandringham on the 25th June after watching the cricket. This hotel is excellent value, we paid £54 for a double room including breakfast. For a two star hotel it provides all that you need for the night, a little dated in places but for £54? Room and breakfast were good. Tip, book with the hotels own website... More

The hotel is in a good location for the City Centre and the staff (from reception to cleaner) were very friendly. However, really tired looking place, dirty (lots of hair on the bathroom floor) and no hot water in the shower. The dining room carpet was being sprayed liberally with air freshener when I walked in - not great first... More

Yes it is basic, yes it could do with an update. But the Staff, location and price were first class. Definitely for the fit as there were lots of stairs and no Lift. No problem with noise as I was in the back. But this is a City Centre Hotel.

When booked did not realize this hotel on very busy street. Lots of bars and competing night life! Clean, tidy, friendly staff but the noise was horrendous for someone like me . I have very good hearing and need quiet to sleep. The last straw was the Blues band starting up down stairs. My room was at the front! Moved... More

Thank you Diana for your review. I am very sorry that the city noise affected you. Rooms as you say are quieter at the back of the hotel and can be requested. Of course all city centre hotels have a certain amount of noise especially on weekends. Sadly I had no other rooms to offer you on the night so... More

This is a budget hotel right in the centre of the city - so easy to get to all the attractions & shopping. However, it is very dated now and is really in a need for an update - peeling wallpaper which looked dirty; carpets didn't look clean either; although the housekeeping staff do clean them. Be prepared to climb... More
