Very nice and clean hotel great atmosphere and views on the Waterfront Precinct, close to many fine restaurants, only disappointment was the performance of the in room air conditioning and thats important in Darwin's wet season with Humidity at over 65% also the toilet was angled towards the bath tub so you had to sit on it on an angle...

We enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The food especially breakfast was great. The staff were excellent helping us book tours and giving recommendations. The waterfront is beautiful and full of life. Only gripe was that the wave pool was closed. I would stay again.

We were very happy to stay here. It was very clean and comfortable and we had wonderful view of the bay.Food good and everything within a short walk. We are retirees. The only slight problem was that the shower was over the bath and not too easy to step in and out without something to grasp.

I was recently accomodated for work in the Vibe Hotel Darwin. My rooms view was across the "lagoon" outside which made me wish I was on holidays and able to join in laying on the grass or using the "beach" attached. It is a short walk across the nearby walk way to get to the town centre making it very... More

The Vibe is a great hotel with fantastic staff. We loved the pool area, although the pool was a little cold. We couldn't get the air-con to work in our first room but, the staff moved us as soon as we reported it. The best part of the hotel is the location it is simply stunning. There is also a... More

The hotel is situated on the waterfront with lots of restaurants nearby. The rooms are clean and well appointed but, there is a bit of a walk from the reception to get to the rooms. Next time I stay, I will ask for a room closer.

The hotel was clean & tidy, staff very friendly. The proximity to waterfront attractions is great, unfortunately they didn't advise us at the time of booking (only 2 weeks prior) that the wave pool immediately in front would be closed for the week which was disappointing as that's why we chose the hotel. Also they continue to hold reserved payment... More

Dear melissadB4062EZ, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. Please accept my apologies for the wave pool being closed for maintenance. The pool is run by the council who have informed us that he had to be closed for essential works to be carried out. It will be reopen by the end of May. Hotels... More

Our room was comfortable. and importantly for tourists, the location of this hotel is excellent, within easy walking distance to the city and harbour. The staff were all friendly and polite, and ready to help with any requests.

Go figure, Wednesday night $322.00, Thursday night $379.00, Friday night $189.00, starting to feel a little ripped off, 1 I/2 % credit card surcharge doesn't help and $10.00 per night parking, and all this for a small room next to the lift, to be fair it was well maintained . It's a handy location to the waterfront but excessively over... More
