"We enjoyed our stay at the hotel, our room was a bit small for us personally, but very clean and good housekeeping was given,the food and service in the dining room, was excellent,we enjoyed the wide range of breakfast and evening meal choice,all the staff are very friendly and caring, would definitely recommend the hotel,and stay again in the future, the only downside, the hotel is old, but is in the process of being renovated slowly,but it wasn't a problem for us at all."

Appearances can be deceptive!

"Travelled with friends via a coach holiday. First outside appearance disappointing, but on entering hotel found staff very helpful when the room was found not to be suitable to share. My friend was given another room immediately without any problem. Yes, the hotel is old and very dated, but could not fault the food or staff. Our break was very good, but as it was a girlie one, we did not have a problem with our men folk being there.Evening entertainment was not bad at all and in all had good stay at hotel particularly as I spent birthday there where I was made to feel special. Thank you to all the staff and waitresses."

Very good value

"I'm surprised at the amount of negative reviews of the Sandringham, so here's my opinion.

The Pros:

Very cheap (Bed, breakfast, evening meal for about 30 quid)

The food is excellent (far better than you'd expect for the price)

If you stay out of season it's even cheaper

The rooms are a decent size & comfy

Close to town centre & sea front

The staff are pleasant & helpful

The cons:

The exterior is quite shabby

At weekends the noise from nearby nightclubs is terrible (up till 4AM!)

The "entertainment" is aimed at the over 60's (Still better than pounding disco)

All-in-all, I'd recommend the Sandringham to anybody, especially if you're on a tight budget like me. Just try & avoid Fridays & Saturdays.

loved the view, not the stairs. from burton on trent

"first impression of the bedroom was how shabby it looked. the pillow cses were ragged but clean. scuff marks on three of the walls,like some one had been dancing on them. the shower tray needed regrouting, it was black around the edges. the receptionist had to clean tea stains off the walls . the food was good and a very good sweet menu,but only cheese and biscuits were offered for diabetics.the waiting staff were excellent.and worked hard.we would not go back .it was ideal for a cheap holiday"

Great surprise

"I have just returned from a long weekend at the Sandringham hotel at Weston Super Mare. I must say I was pleasantly surprised because I had read bad reviews before we went. The hotel has been decorated throughout and the rooms were immaculate, with brand new furniture and beds. The shower in the room was also new. Both the bed linen and the towels were very clean. There was a lovely flat screen television in the room too. The hotel staff were very helpful and we had the same waitress serving our table throughout our stay. This waitress went out of her way to see that we enjoyed our meals there. The food was lovely and there was plenty of choice on the menu. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, although we were there with a coach party there were families with children staying at the hotel. The hotel is directly opposite the Grand Pier which unfortunately burnt down on the morning we were leaving. Please discount the negative reviews which precede this and visit the Sandringham if you are passing!"

faulty towers

"The room was dated, the shower head needed replacing. The floorboards on the above floors needed doing. you could hear everyone above walking about by squeaks of the floorboards above. It looked like bella bella hotel from only fools and horses. The only good thing with this hotel was the food."

Looks a bit dated but don't let that put you off

"We've just come back from a Turkey & Tinsel weekend at the Sandringham Hotel. Admittedly it looks rather dated, inside and out but the price was extremely reasonable and for what we paid I don't think you could have expected much more.

However, you shouldn't let the appearance put you off. Our room was clean and tidy, and the bed was comfy. The food was lovely and any hot meals were always hot, and not lukewarm. And there was plenty of it.

There was sherry and bucks fizz before dinner on the Friday night, Christmas dinner on the Saturday (with a glass of wine included) and even had lunch before we left on the Sunday lunchtime. There was live entertainment both nights and bingo, which was fun (you just have to get into the spirit of these things and join in). There was a small charge for the bingo but everything else was included in the price. Oh, and we all received a Christmas present at breakfast on the Saturday as well.

However, the best bit of the whole weekend was the staff. They were all lovely, and couldn't do enough for us. I didn't meet anyone all weekend who was grumpy or not polite.

We would definitely go there again, particularly for the Turkey and Tinsel.

And just in case you're wondering, we're definitely not pensioners!

Great Staff in the dinning room

"We and a large party of friends have just come back from a long week end at The Sandringham. The out side of the Hotel does not reflect the inside. The hotel is old fashioned but clean and welcoming. The team of waitresses were second to none for good service and always had a smile and were efficient and helpful.

The meals were nicely presented and always arrived at the table

nice and hot.

don't go there!!!

"The outside of the builing is awful.The window frames are rotten and look ready to fall out.The inside isn't any better.There are no fire escapes,only the main stairs which are narrow.The place hasn't been decorated in years.They are using blankets which must be about 30 years old.The rooms are stifling and if you open the window,there is a karoake bar blasting out until about 2.00am (fri and sat).The food is overcooked.They allow young people to book in,fine if you've got security staff to deal with them when they get out of hand (which they did)but the night porter was unwilling to deal with them.The act on friday night was sexist and racist.He is stuck in a time warp like the hotel.We never saw any management staff the whole time we were there."
