We stayed at The Sandringham in Cardiff over the weekend, combining a rugby match with a quiet stag do. Some hotels are put off by a group of 5 guys but the Sandringham were brilliant. Alison met us on reception and was lovely, very pleasant and extremely helpful. The hotel is in an ideal location, close to the millenium stadium,... More

Lovely well run medium sized hotel in the heart of Cardiff City centre. Large well equipped en-suite room which was really comfortable, had a good couple of nights sleep and a wonderful "Welsh" breakfast in the morning, staff really helpful and so friendly.

Very close to railway station, shops, Millennium Place & Cardiff Castle. Hotel is dated but clean with the most welcoming & friendly staff. Breakfasts are amazing & cooked to order. Lots of variety. Biggest disappointment is the lack of elevator. We'd been traveling for a month so had heavy suitcases, it was definitely a problem. Saturday night was very noisy... More

We had a wonderful 2 night stay for 20/ 20 cricket match. The staff are really friendly. It's nice to have an old fashioned bath to Soak away the days sight seeing. All Cardiff sights close by and endless places to eat in the vicinity . Not at all modern or posh but nice atmosphere. Very welcoming.

Great if you are on a work night out, or having a short break in the city. You won't get a better location and the hotel is attached to a jazz club/restaurant. Breakfast is good, only room for improvement is there is no lift.
