Vibe Hotel Darwin Waterfront

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was a great venue for having a workshop and still close enough to walk into the main drag. The rooms were really good and the staff were very professional. Thanks also to Trisha who took care of our daily needs for the workshop and to Stacie for the workshop booking and last minute catering.

This was an amazing place to stay right in the heart of the waterfront. Rooms were clean and the air conditioner worked great. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The price of the room was also great and the service at all the facilities was fantastic. All in all I would go back there again.

Booked online direct with hotel and got the Territory Deal which included late check out and 2 complimentary drinks voucher. Great value and great location. Recommend book direct with hotel for best deal.

I stayed there 20 March 2018. Worst service I’ve ever experienced during my past 12 years in hospitality business. The staff in the reception was so arrogant and made me feel so unwelcome. The staff during evening shift was better, but that doesn’t change my experience. Boring breakfast and boring drinks in the bar. For the amount of money you pay you get much better places in Darwin. We asked for an extra duvet. They brought it without duvet cover. WiFi in the room didn’t work. The aircon was noisy. My advice to the hotel: Work on your staff. A smile is free to offer your guests and remember to say “welcome” when they arrive and do what it takes to help your guests.

The vibe hotel is well placed on the waterfront and a 15 minute walk into the town centre mitchel street, in the area close by are bars and restaurants, for kids as well plenty to do , hotel is clean and tidy our room was good

Personnel unkind and not professional and the worst breakfast of my life: poor, restaurant dirty, nothing works! The location is excellent but rooms have nothing special. I do not think I would ever return.

Would recommend the Vibe Waterfront as a place to stay for work or play. I found no need to venture out of the Waterfront at night - I found enough food choices within for the 4 nights I stayed there.

Perfect spot for easy access to Darwin and the waterfront ,with everything you need at your disposal, will stay again in the dry season to see what we missed this time around Darwin is a magical surprising place.

Terrible sleep in room 321 too noisy ..... stayed due to cyclone Marcus coz we had no power in fannie bay. ... room was clean and power was nice byt it was very noisy and when we told reception all the lady said was maintenance onlybwork 9am to 5pm...

We travelled from Bali to Darwin for 2 nights 3 days to see a tiny bit of Australia. Very nice hotel and well situated for shops , pool, beach and other areas of interest. Would have been nice to have a balcony. The room was fine for a couple of days.
