A fantastic budget option in Cardiff City Centre Jan 11, 2017
As my trip to Cardiff was a fairly late decision, I was surprised that I was able to get such a great deal at the Sandringham. I paid just £33 a night for a single en-suite room with breakfast included in January 2016! As you can imagine, I did not expect much by way of comfort for the price paid but I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable my room (305) was. The bathroom and shower were a good size and the bedroom area was very comfortable and cosy, although it was rather small. The TV was a flat screen and there were tea making facilities and a trouser press in the room too. The bed itself was very comfy and I had no problem sleeping even with some of the street noise coming in through the window from the street below. I imagine that if my stay had been on a Saturday night, I may have been kept awake as the window was old and had gaps in the frames. For a midweek stay though, it was not a problem at all.

On the negative side, the hotel decor is very dated and a little dilapidated in the corridors and stairways. There are no lifts in the hotel so it is unsuitable for visitors with physical disabilities. The room cleaners tended to block the corridors with bed linens, vacuum cleaners etc so it was a bit of an obstacle course negotiating the corridors in the mornings. Not really their fault though. Space is really at a premium in this hotel.

I would happily stay at the Sandringham again should I return to Cardiff in future. I got a great deal and in many ways, the experience exceeded that of some of the chain budget hotels I have stayed in previously.

The Sandringham is situated perfectly for a short break in Cardiff, a short walk from the railway station and the castle. There are many pubs and restaurants within 2 minutes walk of the hotel.

The staff at the Sandringham could not have been more pleasant, welcoming and accommodating. The staff at breakfast including the chef and waiting staff were lovely and friendly and their cooked breakfast was a perfect way to start the day. Also the staff on reception always had a smile on their faces. Great customer service!

amazing location in the centre of cardiff Apr 19, 2010
I was in Cardiff to visit friends and attend the Oasis gig at the Cardiff International Arena. I booked a single room for two nights at £102(total) through

Arriving on the train at Cardiff central station, I had a five minute walk to the sandringham. Located on st.mary street, the hotel is close to all major attractions, venues, and a stones throw from several bars, clubs and restaurants. Ideal for a short stay if you need to get around quickly.

The room was clean, comfortable, and had a decent sized bathroom with instant hot water available. The hotel staff were very friendly, and gave me good directions when I needed to find a particular bar in the city. I would stay here again on any future trips to Cardiff.
