Just back from a long weekend and stayed 2 nights at the Viking. Rooms were very clean and bed was soft but comfy. Ideally situated but parking outside might be an issue in peak season. Landlord was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good, full English cereals ect. The only problem was the underpowered shower but just give yourself more... More

Broadstairs is my birth town and home for nearly 40 years, so I love to return and meet up with old friends and family. We had a lovely stay in The Cream Room, although the bed was not massive the room was well fitted and very clean, everything was as it should be for. Smallish family run guest house, the... More

Wonderfully positioned close to all Broadstairs has to offer. Room was very comfortable, pleasantly decorated and exceptionally clean with good sized bathroom. Tony, the host, was very welcoming and served up an excellent breakfast. Will definitely visit again!

Stayed at The Viking Guest House on a recommendation from friends (who can be very 'picky'). The owner was friendly and welcoming, rooms were very clean and comfortable. Ideal location literally just round the corner from the town centre and beach....but away from any noise and bustle. Plenty to do in Broadstairs....(there was a Food festival on at the time... More

Clean place in centre of town near to beach and restaurants, several good ones nearby We tried the Charles dickens and prezzo. No on site parking which means parking 200 yards away. Not very welcoming/friendly all a bit businesslike Breakfast mediocre

Super clean, super tidy, ideally situated with only a short walk to all of the main parts of Broadstairs, what a little gem of a Guest House, we will definitely be booking again. Great service by really nice hosts.

We decided to go to Broadstairs at the last minute for a one-night break with our two children, aged 7 and 8. We booked the Viking online and then got on the train. We arrived a few hours later and it was all absolutely fine. The family room is ideal if you have two older children - they have their... More

A friend recommended The Viking, having stayed a few weeks previously "en famille". My partner and I decided to stay for a night on her recommendation, but found that our stay wasnt quite as marvellous as promised. The decor is incredibly chintzy in a style which I thought had died out in the 70s. But our biggest disappointment was the... More
