Viking Guest House
Ranked #22 of 24 Broadstairs B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 August 2011

The Viking Guesthouse used to be one of the best guesthouses in Broadstairs, but sadly things have started to decline lately. The lampshades need renewing as they are evidently worn out and shabby and the guest information pack definitely needs updating asit dates from 2004 and some of the attractions and restaurants no longer exist!!!. Breakfasts could be better too, mine as mine was dried up.
Would I go again, that needs thinking about, as there are other guesthouses in Broadstairs with better amenities.

We spent 5 nights in the Viking Guest House with our two children (ages 3 and 6). We had the family room – an interconnected double bedroom and twin bedroom with our own bathroom (with shower and bath). The rooms had plenty of space and storage. The beds were comfortable. Everything was very clean. Both rooms were equipped with TVs (which was handy with the children!).
The breakfasts were great. Tony was very attentive, down to putting a highchair out ready for our daughter at breakfast, and even laying the breakfast table with all the teapots and cups etc out of her reach. There was plenty of choice with cereals (lots), toast, fruit salad and a lovely full English breakfast. (Bottled water and tea/coffee-making facilities were provided in each of our bedrooms, and the children appreciated the complimentary biscuits!)
Another great thing about the Viking is the location. With small children on their first beach holiday it was wonderful being just a minute's walk from the beach, bandstand and prom. There are lots of lovely restaurants also within walking distance for evening meals. The guesthouse is, perhaps, ten minutes' walk from the station (we don't drive) so it was easy to get to.
Booking and payment were all very efficient.
Highly recommended. We will definitely stay here again.
