Broadstairs is a wonderful resort that has moved with the times.There is always something going on. A huge choice of high class restaurants (seafood to die for) not to mention Morelli's delicious ice cream. The apartment was perfect for us, well supplied with everything we needed (including beach towels) and the views lived up to expectations. The fireworks display was brilliant and we certainly had the best seats from the lounge window. Beautiful beach and great coastal walks.
Get the weather and this is the British seaside at its very best. We will definitely visit again.
This is the second time we have stayed at Viking View, and we'll certainly book again for our next visit to Broadstairs.
The flat is in the perfect location, literally two minutes from the beach and very convenient for the rest of town. It is extremely comfortable, immaculately clean and very well equipped. The climb up the stairs is definitely worth it for the stunning views – especially when there is a firework display on the beach directly in front of the property!
The town itself is quite small with a limited number of mainly local shops, but has some very nice restaurants and pubs (our favourites: Tarter Frigate and 39 Steps). Excellent ice creams (favourite flavours: Triple Chocolate and Blue Bubblegum). The tiny Palace Cinema is also lovely – an inexpensive treat for a rainy afternoon.
The local beaches of Viking Bay, Stone Bay, Louisa Bay and Dumpton Bay each have their own characters, which also change from high to low tide, so you won't get bored just going to the beach pretty much every day.
Lovely apartment & great view over Viking bay. Easy & Quick to get to the beach as long as you can handle stairs. Apartment is ver clean and modern and well equipped. We were a family of 4 with children of 8 & 6 and it was ideal, we had a lovely stay.
Absolutely Brilliant. The view is out this world. Who needs to go abroad when you have this great apartment and Broadstairs. The beach is literally just outside. There is so much going on in Broadstairs, from Restaurants, to Pubs and a great beach.
Nicely furnished, spacious and well equipped apartment with great views and in an excellent location. The entrance hall is a bit shabby which is a shame and there are a lot of steps which wouldn't suit some people, but once you're in the apartment it's lovely.
Parking is £12 per day but if you drive a couple of blocks you can park free in a residential area on the road.
There are 52 steps up to this apartment but it is well worth the climb. This is a beautiful place to stay. It is spacious and comfortable with an amazing view over the beach. We had a wonderful stay and fully intend to return.
Broadstairs itself is not a place to go if you want a wild night life but it is perfect for a relaxing few days holiday. Lots of places to eat and drink and a lovely beach.
Viking Views truly does have the best view in Broadstairs. The apartment was immaculate, the location was perfect and central, and the set up was perfect for our family of four. The whole process was very smooth, Lisa provided very clear and easy directions on key pick up, responded rapidly to all communication, and was an outstanding host.
Broadstairs is a gorgeous place to spend some time, we were blessed with good weather, and the views out over Viking Beach with the sailboats was magnificent. We enjoyed the nearby mini golf, and very close by Morelli's ice cream shop. We stayed just over a week, and found plenty to do along the Kent coast.
The apartment is beautifully presented and very cosy. Considering the central location, it was very spacious, and we found we could settle in comfortably.
The steep stairs are a bit of a challenge with heavy luggage (we were travelling on for nearly a month, so were carrying big suitcases), but would not be an issue if you were travelling light. Car parking is also quite expensive in Broadstairs, but we parked on Dumpton Park Drive, a five minute walk away for free without too much trouble.
I'd highly recommend Viking Views for a weekend stay or longer in Broadstairs.
