Please be aware that the Ramada Viking website for booking is misleading. The booking for special offer rates implies that a simple €7.00 deposit is all that is required for initial booking to hold the room. This is not the case however and they then try to take the remainder from your card/account. I had previously stayed at this hotel and encountered the same problem with my mother and father. However, they conceded that it was a problem on their side and did their best to rectify the issue. Upon trying to book this month I was called and told that nothing could be done - I either had to pay upfront or lose the deal, room and deposit. There was no concession and they would not allow me to pay for the room by card later in the week while holding the deal and kept the initial booking fee. Although I realise this is a very slight amount of money, in the times of recession, with one hotel closing per week in Ireland, they could possibly have treated their customer with more dignity. I am on a fixed income and do not have large quantites of money at hand.
Also, their bar is terrible.
