Visited the Viking Hotel the begining of may. Found the room very clean and adequate for a 2 Star Hotel.The meals were very good and the entertainment was also good.All in all it was excellent value for money and will definitely use this hotel again on our next visit to Blackpool.

Stayed hear the end of april with my wife had a great time the food is very good and the breakfasts really set you up for the day buffet style.
The hotel is clean and rooms comfortable remember this is a 2 star hotel so dont expect the ritz.
The cabaret is brilliant top notch artists buddy lee is a must see along with terry cota and carl scholfeild.
One member of staff was really good and that was daz the waiter barman top bloke thanks daz.

The only moan we had was the bar prices well over the top so we went to a bar called ma kellys for a few befor hitting the cabaret ..This is the first time i have ever known the residents bar to be empty after the show .however overall great value for money

Stayed here for family celebration. Hotel planned tables at meal times to be all together.Meals were lovely but slightly disappointing at water only choice for drink.Room was clean but hard to find lol. Rooms seem to go in a strange order.We hit the town Friday night which was okay.Saturday we spent downstairs for the cabaret.It was brilliant.Buddy Lee made the night,even though he did pick on our party lol.Very funny and entertaining,and can see why it's a adults only hotel.The singer was good,but the comedienne didn't rate much.If it had been Buddy Lee all night we would of been well happy.Would defiantly stay here again on our next trip to Blackpool.Worth the money which wasn't that expensive.Plus large car-park which in Blackpool is a must.

Room Tip: If you are staying for a week I would go for the sea-view.

Everything was excellent! Food, accommodation, comfort, cleanliness, welcome, entertainment - If anyone grumbles at this exceptional hotel, they're really really difficult to please. Two shining stars Natasha Richardson on reception and Wilf in the restaurant; whatever you're paying these guys it isnt enough. Whoever is performance managing these two exceptional individuals is having an 'armchair' ride; spend your time with others Natasha and Wilf dont need you!! Well done and thanks.
