Visited the Viking Hotel with a group of friends to celebrate Christmas. I was absolutely appalled at the unintelligent, bullying humour employed by the comedian Buddy Lee. With the current climate and focus on mental health and well-being, I could not believe that a so-called...More

We always stay at the Viking Hotel partly for the entertainment at The Talk Of The Coast. Buddy Lee is hilarious, dancers are good and there are comedians and singers too. Almost as good as the Legends show.

Came here on an organised Christmas party. If honest I wasn't expecting much but came away having had an amazing time. The singing, dancing, comedian were fantastic. The food was surprisingly very very good and plenty of it. I would 100% recommend this venue for...More

What a fabulous evening! Bobby Lee was absolutely hilarious- kind of glad we sat at the front so he could take the mick out of us! The dancers were brilliant. All the girls looked fabulous and did an amazing job. There was a young male...More
