Stayed here as we was on the scooter Rally. Fantastic hotel. We had one of the superior rooms with a balcony and new shower room 41. Well worth the extra money. The food was lovely and the staff were all really lovely. We loved it that much we booked and payed for next year. hopefully the same room Thanks to... More

We have been visiting the Sandringham annually for the last few years and my fiancé has been going since he was young. it is such a shame to see a hotel in such a prime position to be going downhill. From tired décor to smaller and smaller meals each night to recycled toast for breakfast (leftovers from one table put... More

Having read previous reviews, which are very mixed, I wasn't sure what to expect. We booked a double sea view room with balcony. We were allocated room 23. After walking through what seemed to be miles of dark corridors with several sets of steps, we eventually found our room. We struggled to get through the doorway with the bags as... More

After reading some of these reviews before we booked we had very low expectations, saying that, they are only a 2* hotel which most of these people seem to be forgetting!!..when i think of 'old fashioned, needs updating' etc, i assume the decore it tatty, old, needs replacing, but the furniture in the first loung looks brand new! The problem... More

We stayed for 4 nights last week hosting a group of 13 families (50 people) from a children's charity. It was the 5th year running that we had taken a group here and we will be returning. The hotel is clean, the food good, service great and location brilliant. We all had family rooms at the front of the hotel... More

This is my first 'terrible' review on TripAdvisor; as to the hotel itself, as other reviewers note, it is old, tatty, in need of modernization but maybe this is what one expects in Sandown. What I didn't expect though is having specifically asked if a sea-view room was available to discover on entering my room that while one could technically... More
