    2022 Winter Wedding Wonderland

    Our wedding at Hotel Viking was absolutely beyond what we had hoped it would be! Linda and everyone involved made sure everything was handled just as we wanted. They were responsive, courteous, and absolute professionals at every step of the way. We particularly appreciated how they honored their word despite some COVID scheduling hiccups the year before and how they worked with us to accommodate changing plans. On top of all that, they were a GREAT deal financially. We cannot recommend them enough.

    Hotel Viking's reply:

    Thank you, Ashtin, it was such a pleasure hosting your wedding at the Kay Chapel and Hotel Viking. We are thrilled that you are happy and have great memories! And we look forward to welcoming you back for years to come.

    All the best,
    Linda

    Great Experience!

    Our wedding and reception at Hotel Viking were perfect, and both events were organized and ran smoothly due to the help from the staff at Hotel Viking, particularly Linda Ferguson. She went above and beyond to make sure every detail was accounted for. Our wedding had to be rescheduled for a year because of the pandemic, and Hotel Viking was incredibly flexible and accommodating during this difficult time. Beautiful venue; helpful staff!

    Hotel Viking's reply:

    Thank you Katy! It was a pleasure and an honor to host your wedding at the Hotel Viking! We LOVE "Perfect" and are so happy that you are happy and have wonderful memories!

    ~Linda
