First stay here at the Viking with my husband and Daughter. Compared with other hotels in Blackpool this one is stands out by far and is great value for money. We had two rooms, one double and one trable. The latter was much more spacious with plenty of room for storage and room to move around. We were pleasantly suprised at the standard of the food which we thought was really good and served in a newly refurbished reataurant overlooking the sea. Service was good and staff were very helpful. One particular bonus was that seats are reseved for you in 'Talk of the Coast' nightclub which is inclusive for the duration of your stay. Saves having to think where to go in the evening or where to sit.
Only negatives were:shower needed getting used to, too warm as limited/no air con in the bedrooms and very hit and miss with the car park. Limited spaces if the hotel is full so my advise would be if you get a space (which is included in the price) park up and leave it there if possible for duration of your stay. If you don't you could end up having to continually move your car around with additional costs and time out of your stay.
Apart from those minor points would definately would stay again as perfect location/sea front and close to south pier/Pleasure Beach and transport stops. Rember book early as get booked up early in the year. We booked early March for end of July and got the last couple of rooms.
