Beautiful hotel by the waterfront...lots of restaurants and bars around, but a bit of a walk to Mitchell street. The staff were friendly. Breakfast was good but a little pricey. Beds very comfortable.

The location of this hotel was outstanding. The wharf area of Darwin was absolutely beautiful and we had a fantastic time. The hotel staff were accommodating however, they were not very knowledgeable of the surrounding area like where museums etc were.

Great for families if kids want to be near the wavepool, marketed as a 4 star but more like a 3 star hotel. Accomm not cheap buffet breakfast poor, food in bay maries is lukewarm and buffet lacks variety. However they redeem themselves with express lunch options.

Darwin Waterfront is a great location. There are various places to eat at, and the is also a park, public wave pool and a view of the sea. Our room at Hotel Vibe was comfortable, and the breakfast, which was part of our package, was good. There are rooms available with sea view and balcony, but ours was without these,... More

Good rooms and facilities, service was fine, just not very professional. Could put more effort into training staff so that proper procedures are followed. Also not very impressed by the standard of the breakfast options, nor the price

I stayed four nights at the Vibe while in Darwin for a conference. It seems to be conference central, with a number of conferences being held in the Convention Centre over the days prior to and after my stay, with delegates staying at the hotel. While very full, the hotel did not seem crowded or busy. It is close to... More
