Just returned from a mid-week break at the Viking Hotel, stayed at The Claremont a Hotel many times so wasn't sure what to expect. We weren't disappointed, had a really nice room on the third floor, reception staff very helpful, food was lovely, entertainment was fantastic, Buddy Lee very funny guy, a lot of the acts were new which was a big plus when you stay often. We had no problem parking even when returning from a trip out, had a really good break and met some lovely people, and had a lot of laughs

We have stayed several times at the Viking and a great welcome is always assured by the staff. The food was good with a fair variety and selection. The dining room was OK and your table is pre_booked. Very warm inside though so make you dress comfortably. Rooms are clean can be small but OK have to pay extra for the bigger rooms. The concert room is great again your table is pre_booked so you don't have to rush your meal. Fantastic entertainment good old fashioned cabaret loved it with a disco later. The only issue is the stairs down from dining room to cabaret room very steep but you can outside and in through front door and don't go more than once a year cos same acts and same jokesjokes. Overall great weekend met lovely people and right on sea front.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for sea view and more room

Attended The Viking Hotel For The Three Course Meal And Cabaret For £20 ForTwo People Last Friday Night 30/4/14.Very Wide Choice Of Food For The Price Of Which The Wife And I Tried Different DishesFrom The Starters To The Main Course?And We Had To Agree Very Well Cooked And Presented By A Very Friendly Staff.The Hotel It's Self Has Undergone A Very Impressive Refurbishment And A Very Modern Taste To The Decor.So On To The Cabaret The Resident Compere In The Shape Of Mr Buddy Lee Was Really On For Form And Very Funny Had The Audience in The Palm Of His Hand With His Very Good Skill In Ad-Libbing?Competitive Bar Prices For The Standard Of Entertainment Booked For The Night Which Again The Two Quality Acts Booked Were Very Professional.Therefore I Would Rate This Venue 10/10 To Any Prospective Customers.

Hotel is right on the seafront near the central pier so a good location. The hotel is for adults only. The food in the restaurant was really good and the staff were all very friendly, I thought the rooms could have better, looked a little worn and ours was right at the top of the stairs and overlooked a flat roof with nesting pigeons and our very own waterfall, but the bed was really comfortable. If you stay in the hotel you get free entry and reserved table to the showbar, so ideal if you you want entertainment too.Buddy Lee was very good.Many of the people we met here go back year after year. Would I go back? yes, I would
