Hotel met my expectations - was a very nice stay. Hotel is located on Darwin waterfront - close to the Wave Pool, restaurants, pubs. It is beautiful area and very safe. Short walk to Darwin city centre with shops and Mitchell street for pubs and nightclubs. The room was good with air-con and fridge. The only negative was the lack... More

I stayed a couple of nights at the Vibe Waterfront. My room was quite spacious and the view was towards the waterfront. You could see the wave pool, the convention center and the pier. I arrived late at night at the airport, took a taxi, which took about 15min to arrive at the hotel. Check in was quick and after... More

Was in Darwin on a work trip, very good location. Walking distance to where I needed to be! Enjoyed walking along the waterfront in the afternoons. Will definitely be back with my family next holidays!

This is a Vibe Hotel after-all so ones expectations are not going to necessarily high. We were checked in by a pleasant young lady who explained to us the facilities and attractions of the hotel. Carrying our own bags to the room we were pleased that we had a good view of the attractions of the waterfront and Darwin Harbour.... More

room was clean and well proportioned. A long walk from the main reception though. However the hotel is well placed for exploring the waterfront area and Darwin towncentre. As international travellers in the middle of a month long Australian trip, the lack of wifi to contact and confirm other parts of our trip was rubbish. Coffee machine in the restaurant... More

Completed a job at 7am and had a room booked to sleep only before going to the airport. Was allowed a late checkout for $60 per hour, which was reasonable. Odered room service breakfast before going to sleep which arrived quickly. The room was great, and had a nice view across the park to a small harbour. I wish i... More

A pleasant, clean hotel, however our short stay was severely impacted by some atrocious room service. Advice to management - ensure staff check what comes out of the kitchen prior to delivering it to rooms.

Of course, location, view and surrounding are excellent. But we paid 480$ for a motel like room, very small, and out-of-date. And the Wifi condition are ridiculous: in the lobby 1/2 h per 24 h, only one device, boundary of 20 MB. In room, 25 $/day for 2 devices. Sorry guys, even McDonalds provides free Wifi. We will never come... More

Room size is standard, a reasonable size bathroom with full bath and good shower (over bath), good bed. Lovely outlook with opening windows for fresh air. Plenty of choices for dining in the Waterfront Precinct(some eateries will charge to hotel room). Parkland and pools/lagoon also right... More
