“our best hotel for years”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

For a couple of years my daughter and me visit UK once a year. This hotel has been the most pleasant regarding the location right in the centre of Cardiff and also the warm relations with the staff during our 5 days` stay. Everything else was okay, too.

Ideally situated for the centre of Cardiff. We were attending a concert at St Davids Hall and that is a few minutes walk away; Millenium stadium likewise. It is a budget hotel; it could do with some updating and TLC. However, the staff are amazingly friendly; the place is clean; the food good and in good quantity. I would not hesitate to stop at the hotel again.

Word of caution.. if you have mobility problems there is a steep staircase to climb to actually get up to the hotel from the street and I don't think it has a lift. Parking is close by at a NCP that is a challenge to larger cars and also costs £18.20 for a 24 hour stay (as at October 2013)

Thank you Patricia for your lovely review.
I am very pleased to read that we have met your needs.
We do have a concession with NCP Westgate Street costing £9 per 24 hours.
I am sorry that this message has not been passed on to you. I have sent you a reply via Tripadvisor for you to contact me to see if we can still get you a refund of the difference.
Once again thank you for your comments and hopefully we will welcome you again soon.
Kind regards, Simon

Excellent location, friendly staff and fabulous value for money. For the price this hotel can't be beaten. Would stay here again next time I am in cardiff.....it makes other budget hotel chains look expensive!

Thank you very much for your wonderful review.
As I have said on an earlier review my main aim is to be value for money. I want to show people that family businesses can be much better than the budget chains but we need guests support to do this.
Your review will help immensely, thank you.
Hopefully we will welcome you again.

Stayed for one night in a twin room. Very spacious room, clean and comfortable. Staff very helpful, breakfast excellent and value for money is second to none. If ever I go to Cardiff again - this is where I'll stay.

Perfect city centre location, 5 minutes walk from car park on Quay Street and plenty of restaurants. Close to the castle and the lovely Bute Park, and so convenient for the hop-on hop- off city tour open top bus. Half an hour's walk to Cardiff Bay where there is so much to see, including fabulous historic and new buildings. There are boat trips into the bay or the option of a 5 mile circular walk around it, both taking in so much of the city's history.
The hotel can only be accessed by stairs and there are no lifts to rooms, but fine for those travelling light and with no mobility difficulties. We had a quiet room towards the back on the first floor,and were not disturbed by any street noise. Although our twin room was small there was storage space,clothes hanging, mirrors and plenty of lights and power points. Really liked the bathroom, spotlessly clean with a good shower,although I would have preferred a screen instead of the cling-on curtain!
Breakfast, available from 7.30 till 9.30am, consisted of cereals, yogurts,pastries,toast, fruit, porridge (plenty for me!) plus full English in all it's combinations ( too much for me!). One of our party had scrambled eggs and poached eggs the next day, and they looked perfect and were polished off in no time!
We would certainly return to this hotel- no frills and good value!

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room on booking( as suggested on a Trip Advisor review) and got one. Take light...

This was a great hotel. Coveniently situated on the main street on Cardiff city centre, the welcome was warm and friendly at reception. The room I had was twin bedded, en suite and spotlessly clean and uncluttered. The full english breakfast was tasty and generous but there were lots of other options available too. The waiters were always on hand to attend to requests and were polite and smiling! Reception even went to the trouble of enquiring bus times and routes - very kind !

This hotel I will definitely stay at again, It was efficient and pleasant and terrific value. In my opinion, it deserves 5 star rating! Thank you all at the Sandringham - a very apt name as my friends and I I were treated like royalty !

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back for quietness, as at weekends Cardiff is a busy, noisy city.
