Hotel Viking is an old historic hotel and whilst it has undergone refurbishments you have to bear in mind that for example the rooms aren't going to get any bigger! I had to chuckle at a previous reviewer from New York who made this very complaint - has he never stayed in a hotel in NYC? That said there were many good things about our stay - the staff were very courteous (especially at breakfast) and the food was very good (again,especially the breakfast). The location was OK, but not perfect - still quite a hike to the Cliff Walk and even the harbour was not in the immediate vicinity. The parking at $30 a day is just poor - it is not even secure, just an open air facility across the road. I know the hotel will say it's the going rate - but does that make it OK? However, the positives easily outweighed the negatives and I would not hesitate in recommending the Hotel Viking whenever you visit Newport.
