... a bit before calling it a night and heading back to the hostel for some much needed laundry time. Interesting facts: Love spoons are hand carved wooden gifts in the shape of a spoon that are given to loved ones. The different carvings represent different hopes and wishes of the giver and receiver. This is where the term spooning comes from! Afternoon tea is ...

Left Plymouth this morning for Glastonbury the site of the rock music festival, whilst a bit alternative it is a pretty little village, old buildings etc. Then drove through green English rolling countryside to Bath. Toured the famous Roman baths ( with a few thousand tourists) _ it is however a classic roman site and another attractive English city. Finally crossed the Severn into Wales and spent night at ...

... It was wonderful to walk through the displays admiring the intricacy of the work. The international artists are professional sculptors and carvers.

After checking out the festival we headed to our accommodation near Bristol Airport.

Bristol also boasts a magnificent cathedral, which is open to the public and is set in a public park which on this sunshine-y day was filled with live music and spontaneous jugglers.The inside of the cathedral will take your breath away, the organ reaches high into the heavens and the mini graveyard is ...

Mines and Mountains Tour

... little place, although the burger place I went into, I think the guy who served me is part of the marfia. He looked dodgy and then his mate who came in, looked like a hired no brainer thug in trackies. And there was a pokie machine inside the restaurant.

Other than that, the Brecon Cathedral was really nice with a rare Monk item, the only one left in Wales.

We then drove to another section of the Brecon National Park, and climbed up ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Sandringham Hotel Cardiff

    One of my little favourites!

    from

    I have to visit Cardiff for one night (work/conference) every 2 to 3 months and always stay over at the Sandringham. O.K. it is an old building etc. but it is so conveniently placed near the station, the shops, taxis etc. that I would not wish to go to one of the newer,'posher' hotels. The rates are good for a single room although the rooms tend to be a little gloomy but they have tea/coffee making facilities, television, room to do some written work and are en suite. The breakfast is O.K. - can be a little cold sometimes (especially the bacon!). I feel quite happy to walk into the Jazz Bar for an evening snack or a drink i.e. as a lone woman. Do not rely on the early morning call 'though. I have mentioned this at reception but the same happened again this last visit. Lucky I'd remembered to pack my little alarm clock! Very welcoming and friendly place in the middle of the city.

    Good value for the area

    from

    Like most of the buildings in this area, the hotel is in an old building and, therefore, very creaky. The bathroom was also small. However, the location of this hotel is excellent. It is right on a main street with lots of shopping and restaurants. Parking can be an issue, though.

    Excellent Service At A Bargain Price

    from

    Just arrived back from a 1 night stop over in Cardiff, was going to travel up and back in the same night for a concert but checked last minute hotel availability and worked out that a combination of taxi's and trains would have worked out more expensive so decided to stop over at the Sandringham. What a find! A lovely little hotel slap bang in the middle of the city, the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, and the room was immaculate. The hotel is an old building and so creaky floorboards and stairs are expected, the only issue being the lack of lifts, but again expected in a building of this age, luckily we were on the first floor so not far to go. Another excellent pro would be the Jazz bar, which although next door is part of the hotel and even on a monday night was pretty busy and great fun!

    Friendly staff, good location, good value

    from

    I stayed at the Sandringham for 2 night earlier this week during my visit to Wales. I was looking for an affordable, friendly, affordable place within walking distance of Cardiff Central train station. The hotel is on the main commercial street in the heart of Cardiff. You can walk to Cardiff Castle, the national museum, etc.

    There's no lift so be prepared. My room as small but clean, comfortable and comfortable. The price was great and included a full English breakfast.

    The staff is very friendly and helpful. The young lady who served my breakfast was gushing with friendliness and enthusiasm. What a great way to start the day.

    There's a good restaurant on the ground floor called Cafe Jazz. Unfortunately, I missed the entertainment.

    Lovely staff, Lovely stay

    from

    We stayed at this hotel whilst visiting Cardiff for an Avril Lavigne concert (it was wicked!) we stayed in the front room of the hotel and it was great we could look out of the window and see everything going on which we loved. There were lots of nice bars up the street and we enjoyed Cardiff Castle. The staff were so friendly and the breakfast was lovely. We will definately be back next time we are in town for a concert. Excellent value and lovely spacious rooms.

    Good Value, Good Location, Nice Place to Stay

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Sandringham 8/31/2004 - 9/3/2004, after booking it through the British tourist office. We were looking for a nice place under £65 a night and convenient to the train station. The Sandringham definitely met those criteria - £45 a night for a double en suite room and located about 3 blocks from the Cardiff Central Station. But the Sandringham offers a lot for the price. The Sandringham is in Cardiff City Center, close to restaurants, shopping, clubs and to Cardiff Castle. The Jazz Café on the ground floor is a good place to hang out. Our room was a smallish but fairly standard hotel room, and looked like it had been decorated in the late 80's. It included a TV (with a couple of satellite channels), telephone, hot water pot for coffee and tea, and a trouser press. However, the mattress on the bed was rather hard and not particularly comfortable. The bathroom was clean and surprisingly spacious, with plenty of hot water. Since the hotel is in central Cardiff, there can be a bit of street noise (particularly on a Friday night), but not enough to be a problem if you close the window. A full breakfast is included in the price, and it was quite good. (The menu offers a larger breakfast for an extra £2, but I can't imagine needing that much more food). The staff was helpful and friendly, and called taxis for us several times. In short, good value, good location and a nice place to stay.

    Good lodgings and location

    from

    We had 2 rooms here in July 2004. Like most hotels in the U.K. the rooms were small but the

    bathrooms were surprisingly spacious. Breakfast

    was served every morning by very friendly staff.

    The hotel is on a busy street but our rooms were

    quiet (did not face the street). This hotel is within

    walking distance to the train and bus stations, Cardiff Castle, the National Museum of Wales, and

    a large pedestrian mall/shopping area. We enjoyed

    our visit to Cardiff.

    Clean rooms, friendly service

    from

    We stayed at the Sandringham for one night in Mid-May 2004.

    We were just passing through, but enjoyed the clean room and the cheerful service. It seems to be a family-run business. The daughter at the front desk was friendly as were the ladies who served our traditional and delicious Welsh breakfast. I believe the room price included breakfast.

    They kept our luggage behind the front desk for us for a few hours after we checked out so that we could explore the town a bit.

    We would stay here again.

    Really Great Value

    from

    This is a really great value hotel. It is about 500 yeards from Cardiff Castlke and about 750 yeard from the bus station and the Airbus etc.
