Viking Hotel
Ranked #17 of 73 Hotels in Blackpool
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Check in was painless. Car park was handy. We stayed on the 3rd floor room was adequate, tv, kettle, if a little shabby. Bathroom was dated but everything was in order. Not overly clean & there was a faint smell of smoke, there were a few niggles but nothing major. There were a lot of steps and doors to navigate. Lifts seemed oddly placed.
Dining room was very good with views out onto the beach, the food was very tasty and well cooked with a good selection available. The entertainment let me say was the best I have ever seen in a hotel. The compere Buddy Lee was funny without being offensive & he built up a good rapport with the audience a few of the guests even bought him drinks and gifts....Overall I would recommend a stay here if you do not want to venture far from your hotel.

Room Tip: Higher floors if you do not want to hear the cabaret.

We have been frequent visitors to choice hotels in Blackpool.we visited the viking with another couple of friends for who it was there first time.they were quite impressed by the value for money and location of the hotel.we enjoy coming back after a day up the town to relax,have a bath,and look forward to the nights entertainment.The food was good and the staff attentive.all in all we had a nice break and would certainly return again.

just got back from the Viking after a very enjoyable two days. the staff was excellent as was the food. We had a sea view room, it was a bit small but very comfortable and clean. The entertainment was very good. I think the drinks are a bit expensive that's why the bar was empty and you got served quickly. But apart from that it was a very good two days

Room Tip: we had room 401 with a sea view small but comfortable on the fourth floor

We originally booked for one night but enjoyed it so much we stayed another night. The atmosphere was great the staff were very friendly and helpful and the entertainment was great. Meals were lovely and the rooms very clean. Safe to say we will be back.
