Just spent two nights here , exploring Cardiff. Great location, lovely staff made us feel very welcome. Tasty breakfast and very comfy beds. Despite the city centre location our room was quiet and we had good nights sleep. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

I work as a contractor and had a job in Cardiff for 6 months. I booked the Sandringham hotel and was pleasantly surprised at the size of the rooms and en- suite bathrooms. I was there every week for 4 and a half months and got to know the staff pretty well. They are all very lovely people and took... More

Thanks Michael for your fantastic review but more importantly for your friendship. It is always great for my team to see regular guests and to build a relationship with them. The only sad part is when the guests requirement to stay in Cardiff ends. We miss seeing you. Alison and Ruth especially miss their chats with you. Hopefully we shall... More

I took the train to Cardiff. When you walk out of station go right. go to the intersection(old pub on corner), take left. There are few to no numbers on their buildings. Go 9-10 min and its on the right. There is a ice cream dessert rest. next to it. This is a very old place. It is clean,but wear... More

Thank you for your feedback. I am pleased that you have enjoyed your stay. I agree that the staff should at least know the opening times of Cardiff Castle. Even if they didn't they should have found out all the information requested via the internet. I shall address this with them. I hope to get to welcome you back sometime... More

A good quality hotel located in the city centre of Cardiff. The hotel was of a good standard and the room provided was comfortable and a double even though I was alone. The staff were friendly and prices reasonable for a large city and the capital of Wales. The only issues were a shower that you could not detach and... More

Thank you for your feedback and for choosing to stay in my hotel. I am sorry that you have found some aspects disappointing. A bathroom light pull switch is quite common in the UK.

Thank you Tasha for your feedback. Every room has two pillows per person on each bed and then there is two more spare on top of the wardrobe so everyone gets three as suggested. We can also supply more on request. I hope we will get the chance to welcome you again in the future. Kind regards, Simon More

Where to start..! The owners Simon and Alison are simply fantastic, and almost all the staff are equally as friendly and welcoming (though her name was never caught, the French lady on reception also deserves separate and equal praise).

I only stayed here for one night in July 2016 but I will definitely be using this hotel again. The staff were very friendly and the after-service was great as well (I needed a receipt to claim on expenses but I lost it and they immediately responded to my email and sent another one).
