Sandringham Hotel, Cardiff, United Kingdom
It is what it is.
We did not expect too much for the money we had to pay. It is city centre - therefore noisy at night - and has an 'old' feeling to everything, and many stairs. But, we knew from before and chose it again because it is 1. Cheap, 2. Very central.

Cheap but needs a refurbishment badly.
It is very dated, it needs more modern windows doors, locks etc, I'm sure it's had no work done on it since the 70s. Windows are not sound proof, so there is much noise from the street, late night bars is just a few minutes walk from Cardiff Castle so is in a good location. The staff were helpful and friendly. The price was OK but their website needs updating, I thought I would get breakfast for the £40 I paid. There is no parking and the ncp multi storey , requires a pass for £13 for 24 hours. If I was to visit Cardiff anytime soon I'd rather stay at one of the budget chains for a few £ more.

Lovely little city centre hotel
Lovely little city centre hotel - very friendly staff at reception, breakfast room and housekeeping. Five minutes walk from railway stations and less than two minutes walk to city centre shops. Breakfast really good. Bed very comfortable. Hot water was very hot (just like it said on the warning notice!) Hair-dryer and plenty of towels provided. It doesn't have a lift (but it does have notices at each landing telling you how many calories you have expended getting there!)

Very Good8.0
reasonable hotel close to the station
Despite being close to a busy night-club the noise levels in the room were ok - luckily! Close to the station was the main reason to stay.

Very Old Hotel in the Heart of Old City
Pros: Right in the center of the city - on Main Street. Close to everything. Nice hard working staff Cons: Old and ancient hotel; no elevator; narrow stairs; breakfast-awful; room small & outdated. Thank you for hospitality but I don't recommend.
