Vibe Hotel Darwin Waterfront

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is clean, the air conditioning is good. Friendly staff. Just don't expect wifi to work unless you are prepared to pay extra for it. Oh and don't expect an omelette for breakfast, with the buffet either.

There's room for improvement. Could do better. Impressed with the concierge. Great Service. Reception Staff were ok. The dining staff have a lot to learn on service and pricing of menu items. I seem to know more about the pricing than the staff. Room Service - Trio of Ice Cream - No spoon. Knife and Fork instead. Butter chicken sub standard. Very chalky and salty.

Very impressed with the service, location, and quality of the hotel. Beautiful place to stay when in Darwin. I will certainly look at staying there again on my next visit to Darwin. The value and location is unsurpassed.

Bathrooms are outdated and there is a significant slip hazard in there otherwise great location and price wasn't too bad either, breakfast was great value as we had two for one but if you had to pay individually then it would be very expensive for what you get at $29 each.

The location of this hotel is ideal right on the waterfront with lots of great bars and restaurants in walking distance to enjoy. There is also a free shuttle bus that you could take over to Stokes Hill Wharf which is another great spot to enjoy a delicious meal and catch up on some great sight seeing and history lesson to boot. We arrived just days after the Monsoon did and so this may have impacted on our experience at this hotel, but quite frankly we were disappointed with the facility, not sure I'd go back?

Hall ways flooded. Like walking through a swamp to get to my room stunk like wet dog. Dirty coffie mugs left outside my room on arrival. Needs some serious maintenance. Also smelt like fish and wet dog on the way out. At least tell people that your building is under maintenance. Just wrong.

Rooms where great, very simple need some updating though. Cleanliness was good! Pillows where soooooo bad you have to take your own to get a decent sleep. Nice place to stay for darwin peeps especially, close walk to bars and food

Great location right on the waterfront and easy walking distance to city centre via an overhead walkway. Staff efficient and friendly. Rooms spacious and clean Breakfast was very nice. Good gym and pool Overall very nice to stay when visiting Darwin

Excellent location for work & access to get meals from the surrounding restaurants. Love the waterfront location with short walk to the iconic Stolkes Hill Wharf. The staff at the hotel were great. Not sure when I will be back but would live to stay there again.

We recently stayed at Vibe for four nights. At the end of our trip, we headed home to Sydney and on arrival, realised that one of our party's beloved teddy had been left behind. After a late night phone call to the front desk (which, helpfully, is open 24 hours), Paddy the bear was located. I was asked to fill in a form by reception, but regardless, they express posted Paddy to us the following day, meaning that he was only missed for two nights. Not only was he posted promptly, but the staff at the hotel followed us up for our address to allow this to happen as quickly as possible. Not ONLY did they do this, but they included the most adorable postcard from them describing Paddy's visit, AND an 'international teddy passport', handmade by the team with photos of Paddy about the hotel. When I opened this and saw the contents, I legitimately cried. What a fabulous moment in an often bleak world! Thank you so much to the duty manager for organising this wonderful inclusion, and of course for reuniting us with Paddy so quickly. Will definitely stay again, not only because of this moment but because of the gorgeous harbour views, the brilliant location and wonderful amenities. Thank you!
