My partner and I stayed here last June (drop down box would not go that far back) on an all inclusive week, my parents had been here the year before on the same all inclusive week and said how good it was, and we was not disappointed. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the entertainment is excellent, the food is excellent and of plenty of choice. Our room was a a very good size, and clean the only small thing was that the toilet was abit unstable, we didn't report it as it wasn't a major issue but I'm sure if we had of it would of been sorted. Also in a good location, 5 mins walk from the pleasure beach. .Overall a great hotel, I would definitely return and would recommend to others.

The last time we stopped at the Viking it needed a few improvements, i am glad to say this has happened.Food excellent, loved the self service at breakfast time.Evening meal superb, and the staff brilliant in the dining room.In fact the reception staff are an excellent first impression, this is what you need people who can converse and have empty with other people not has in a lot of cases using foreign staff, well done! In the dining room the meeters and greeters who were both ladies had a great sense of humour and efficient.Cleaning staff again cant fault extremely courteous and finally the bar staff all helping to make an excellent hotel. Forgot, last but not least, entertainment top class and you don't have to leave the hotel what more can you ask for .We will be back!

Booked a 4 day all inclusive break for myself and my husband. Check in staff very friendly and helpful. We arrived mid morning and were given a pass to put on car windscreen which allowed us to leave our car on their car park and go into Blackpool. We returned at 3pm for check in. We asked for a second floor room and got exactly what we asked for. Room was lovely, although we did pay extra for a sea view. Breakfast was self service and very plentiful with a good choice. the bacon was the best I have had in any hotel home or abroad. Dinner was excellent. Hubby is a fussy eater only liking plain food and he had a roast dinner every night. 4 choices of main course and 6 or 7 starters and desserts. The all inclusive package is brilliant. A hot lunch is provided and all the alcoholic drinks on their all inclusive list are free even in the Talk of the Coast. I will definitely be returning!

Room Tip: We recommend a second floor room

We did not stay at the hotel but booked for the Saturday night show in the talk of the coast we had a fab time we sat down to eat a 3 course meal at 7.30 ,the meal was very nice Soup to start followed by chicken breast wrapped in bacon and veg ,sweet was apple crumble and custard !!!! we moved seats for the show so we were at the right angle to get a better view of the show and for the next 4 hours we were entertained by the best show weve seen !!! Buddy Lee was a fantastic host and his double act with Carl Schofield was worth the entrance money alone it really was that funny and all for £25 per person a great night had by all

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Viking, this is about our 4th stay at this hotel. The main reason is why we like this hotel is the adults only,and the entertainment .On the Friday night it includes Buddy Lee who is always fantastic and Lennie Anderson who we haven't seen before but was excellent. On the Saturday night Buddy is on again always with a different show however somebody came on called Billy Hudson the coffin man and he was absoloutly atrocious people were actually walking out. Will be returning but not for a while the hotel is in need of refurbishment and the food lets it down very average and more often than not sometimes cold.

Room Tip: choose a sea view room

I have no fear in recommending the fantastic Viking hotel.We have stayed twice a year for the past 14 years approx and just back yesterday from another superb week-end.The food was delicious as always.The kitchen and resteraunt staff work so hard to please and are keen to help.It is good to see lots of the same staff each time you go.
As for the entertainment you will never get better than BUDDY LEE.He is an absolute master with the audience and a genuinley nice guy.He never ceases to amaze with his talent and cheeky good fun.
So if you can ignore the chipped paintwork [that is the only fault I can find]you will go home exhausted but with a big smile on your face.
