This review may be slightly biased as the days previous to finding Viking Resort were so horrendous! The previous night we were washed out of our tent by torrential rain soaking all of our clothes and our sleeping bags! At the time we would have been happy with any accommodation!! However, the Viking was so much more that this. We were greeted with a warm friendly welcome and immediately liked the placed. I particularly like the owners modestly: when we asked for a budget room she apologised that it was small. Pleasingly it was much larger that we would have expected considering the cost. There was only a limited lake view but as it was a budget room we expected this.
When we inquired into finding somewhere local to wash and dry our clothes they offered to clean them for us even though they didn't offer a laundry service. This in it self was exceptionally good, however when we arrived back from our evening meal our clothes had already been put into the tumble dryer!!! I've never heard to such service! And at no additional cost. I think I should clarify that our circumstance was fairly unique and I think they felt particularly sorry for us; I mention this I would hate for other travelers so read this and then expect the same as that would be unfair on the owners.
The owners were also gave some great recommendations for local places to visit and get food. The adjacent lake was beautiful & I just wish we could have had some time to relax by the lake and have a swim.
We can't thank the Viking Resort and will return again!! Great value & great service -they could easily charge more!
