As a local, this is a good place to stay overnight (cheaper than taxi to and from the city from Palmerston). Close to City, right on the waterfront and wavepool. Have stayed here 3 x now and will be back for sure.

The Vibe made our conference work. No service was too much trouble and it all happened with no fuss. Good for accommodation and conference rooms to be in one building and to be at the heart of the new Darwin Waterfront was delightful. I would definitely use it again and for a personal visit too.

We have stayed here numerous times and the hotel is great and the location is fantastic. Just don't eat there! We make the mistake everytime and eat at the buffet restaurant and it's always a disappointment. The food isn't replaced with freshly cooked eggs, bacon, sasuages etc - probably because their occupancy says they are full but no one bothers to eat there either. Even the room service was barely edible. Would definitely stay there again but wont be eating there.

In our opinion this was the best location in the city. Reception staff were extremely helpful and rooms were bright and comfortable. View from the window was magic especially at night. Easy to get to the CBD by a lift just outside the hotel and across an overpass into the city.

Position on the waterfront is lovely. Staff are so friendly that it made coming back to the hotel after a day's work something to look forward to. More comfortable and homely feel than an isolated apartment.
