I read with interest Sheenadon from Darlinton comments and totally agree The Viking Hotel is a great hotel and also agree with the comments regarding the smoking rooms or should I say the now "no smoking" rooms, my husband and myself have gone to The Viking 3 times every year for years now and have always booked a smoking room, just after Christmas I phoned to book our March holiday only to be told that the hotel as from 1 January was becomig completly none smoking due to customer feedback I was gutted and did not make the booking. Come on Viking please give consideration to your smoking regular customers

Last stayed here in September and thoroughly enjoyed it. We found the food very good, the staff pleasant and accommodating, the entertainment excellent, especially Buddy Lee, and the bedroom /bed very comfortable. I was looking forward to coming this year buy am horrified to see that the hotel has now downgraded to being totally non smoking. In effect no smoking allowed bedrooms.
On this occasion thinking of the cheeldren cannot be used as an excuse as they are not allowed anyway. Even the last disastrous government cannot be blamed as an exemption was allowed regarding hotel bedrooms. Using the same tired excuse of customer feedback sounds ridiculous as I witnessed a higher than average congregation of smokers stood outside in the interval.
Now need to alert all the people who I,ve recommended this hotel to.
Shame on the management for treating their guests in this way.

We had a fabulous holiday thanks to Mario and his team every comfort you could ever wish for we were looked after from the moment we arrived, the thing I like about this hotel everyone is put a ease by the staff from the moment you check in and that in turn makes it feel like one big family everybody speaks to one another from day one, we have made so many friends in this hotel we now all meet up several times a year and if The Choice Group are going the way I think with there all inclusive weeks it will make them the best hotel group by far, I cannot recommend this group strongly enough.

Room Tip: if you wont a sea view ask for it comes slightly dearer but all the rooms are first class.

We went to the Viking hotel for a Christmas party night. We had a fabulous time, the entertainment from Buddy Lee and friends is fantastic.
The food is nothing special but as to be expected on nights like this. The rooms themsleves are fine, clean and warm.

Went to the Viking last Friday for a christmas party. Food was good, waiting on & bar staff were excellent couldn't do enough for us. Entertainment & disco excellent. Our rooms were clean & comfortable. At breakfast there was plenty of choice, buffet service, for those that made it! Overall it was a great Christmas party.

Stayed for just the saturday night, with the christmas dinner and party theme. Vikings got plenty of pubs and cafes near by to get you going in the afternoon.car parking was fine on site probably due to time of year. staff are friendly and rooms ok.although some of the girls wished there was a hairdryer,especially with the blackpool weather!Food was good throughout, only picky thing was coffee at evening meal came with a plastic spoon each,and tasted bit rough.same can be said about coffee in room and at breakfast.at least its consistently rough!Stick with tea and you'l be fine.Entertainment was brilliant a good night had by all.
