Sandringham Hotel
Ranked #22 of 74 Hotels in Cardiff
Reviewed 27 September 2011

Spent a Friday night at this hotel. Situated right in the middle of Cardiff. It is cheap, clean accommodation, which was fine for two guys in Cardiff for a night out. The staff were friendly, and although I did not have the breakfast, others that did said it was fine. We were not troubled by any city centre noise, and the facilities were adequate.

After booking myself into the Sandringham as it was the cheapest in Cardiff I have to admit I was a little worried as to what awaited me post check in. I should not have worried. The staff we welcoming and check-in was friendly and efficient. Breakfast was lovely, yet served by nice yet eccentric staff. The major downside - as I believe someone has previously mentioned is the noise - I found it difficult to sleep on both nights, but what do you expect for a hotel in a city centre which is above a jazz bar in a busy city centre and lacks double glazing. Despite this I had an enjoyable stay and would return at the lower rate paid purely due to the location and friendliness of staff.

Thanks Lisa for your very kind review.
I am glad you have enjoyed our first class service.
We do have some rooms that face the main street which can be noisier than the rooms located at the back. We have secondary glazing in all rooms. I promise that we will accommodate guests at the back of the hotel if requested and available.
Finally I do hope that we will see you again in the future as you have indicated. I can't say that we will always have such a low price but I do monitor other hotel prices and so our price will always remain very competitive.
Thanks again,
Kind regards, Simon

I stayed at the Sandringham during the last week of August. The owners were hospitable and nice, everything I wanted was taken care of. In addition, I was delayed getting back to America because of Hurricane Irene. Nonetheless, the staff allowed me to stay an additional night at the same price rather than charging me higher which I know they full well could have done as it was in their own right. There is no elevator, true, but I would hope one would look this up before they booked. No hotel is perfect, but you also have to realize that this hotel is in an historic building so an elevator would kind of take away from that appeal as well. The location was fantastic, and could not be beat really. There is no fitness center, but they do have a deal with one that is close by. The price was very reasonable. I would recommend it, and I certainly would stay there again.

Thank you Sir so much for your kind words. It was an absolute pleasure to meet with you.
We are so glad that you have arrived home safely
The girls on reception all wanted to go with you to visit your fantastic City but that would have just left me to cover them so Sunny Cardiff they stay.
I do hope we will welcome you again in the future.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you for leaving a positive review on TripAdvisor. Not only is it nice to hear that we are doing things right but also that the review helps a small family run business like mine immensely in challenging the huge marketing power of the chain hotels.
Kind regards, Simon

This is a great place to stay in the centre of Cardiff. Room was perfect, as was the breakfast. Really nice 3 course me in the restaurant attached to the hotel. Worth eating there - especially with the discount for guests!
Thank you for a lovely stay.

We stayed here 3 nights and found the staff very friendly, especially at breakfast. The beds were ok - in need of updating and the rooms were clean. Excellent location right in the heart of Cardiff. Great value for a few nights.
