“Will definitely be back!”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

We had a house rented and there were issues, so we booked the Hotel Viking at last minute, and we're blown away! From the moment we drove into the drive until we checked out four days later we were treated as if we were the only guest. Our room was cozy with a king bed, sofa and electric fireplace. The bathroom was well appointed with a rain head shower, and beautiful tile work. It's small but we were okay with that. We had drinks at the bar every evening before heading out and noticed a lot of people were eating the Mac & Cheese with Lobster. Finally gave it a try.... Yummy!

Isn’t it always amazing when a last minute change of plans turns out to be better than expected? In your case we are just so pleased you chose the Hotel Viking and that we could offer you a wonderful 4 day stay! Your rave review certainly provides us with incentives to continue to do our very best so that guests cannot wait to return. Again, thank you.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Viking Hotel. It was a special little get away for us already; and with the staff greeting us with a warm welcome at our arrival, their eagerness to serve & meet our requests (cream brought to our room for our a.m. coffee), to the beautifully appointed decor of our room ~ complete with the plush bed ~ all thoroughly enriched our get away that much more.

When planning a special time away from the routines of our daily lives, it is so important to find a place that offers luxury, which we do offer, warm and enthusiastic staff members and a place you will want to return to in the future. We are so pleased it turned out well for you and we look forward to your return.

Excellent hotel in a fabulous location for a leisurely weekend in Newport. I can echo other reviews that the walls are paper-thin and at least in our room the bed was against the hallway wall so we heard everyone walking or talking in the hallway. Bathroom is very small with barely enough room for 1 person to walk around.

It was worth it for the indoor pool and spa though. Great fitness room too.

Thank you for your review. We are in an excellent location and we definitely agree with you on that. The Hotel Viking is a small historic boutique hotel. We apologize that you were disturbed from the noise in the hallway as well as the small bathroom.

Just came back from a one night little getaway with my boyfriend. We loved this hotel! The guestroom we got was absolutely gorgeous. The bed was amazing, the tv was awesome and the decor was straight out of a gilded age mansion. I felt like a queen in the 1920's. Our room overlooked the courtyard which was lovely. The man at the front desk gave us detailed directions to the cliff walk we did the the tour of The Breakers mansion. All the staff was extremely kind, right down to the friendly room service. The pool and jacuzzi was great. The hotel is at a great location walking, distance from the water, great restaurants and stores. My only complaint was that the bar closed early (before 10pm), but it was a Sunday. There are so many bars in the area, it doesn't really matter. Booking our next stay here soon!

Just come back from a 10 day break which included 3 nights stay at the Viking Hotel.
The Hotel is a lovely building with a really homely feel. The rooms are well furnished and extremely clean.
The front desk staff could not do enough for us, nothing seemed to be too much trouble.
The Restaurant is run by Ryan and Rosie who are the perfect hosts and the Food is just heavenly ( a must is the Chef's Clam Chowder which we had every night as it was soooo good - full of Clams Lobster and Scallops - best I have ever eaten !!! ) and at a price's which do not break the bank ....... we will stay again when we visit the area. we wished we had booked in for longer now !!!

We wish you had booked a longer visit as well. However, we couldn’t be more pleased at the outcome of your 3 nights spent with us. Thank you for mentioning our One Bellevue hosts, Ryan and Rosie! Both are wonderful associates and exemplify what we always hope to portray to our guests, that guest service has to be first and foremost in each of our daily mission. We are looking forward to your next visit and hope it will be better than this visit.
