I was immediately impressed with the helpful land very friendly staff, at that point in my trip, I had stayed at a few bad hotels and needed an oasis.. Well, the Vibe served my needs perfectly. The rooms were very modern, spanking clean and had great views.. The hotel location was in the hot spot of the harbor, with a large variety if eateries just short stroll away.. Is was a "10" for me.. I only wished that there was free internet in the rooms.. but, I don't think that any hotels do that anymore anyway..

You will love this venue, the Vibe, clean, friendly, good staff, a nice restaurant next door and a pool. The waterfront, opposite the hotel, hosts many restaurants, shops and the famous swimming lagoon with the wave pool - a must, so much fun!
Stokes Wharf is a few minutes away on foot, that's where you get the best fish dinner, served on the wharf at very competitive prices. It's five minutes walk from the city centre!
Enjoy this fabulous venue in Darwin!

Room Tip: Ask reception, no room is bad, peace and quiet in all of them.

I was part of a group of business travellers. The room had all the expected facilities, everything worked and the bed was comfortable. Like most hotels,you can hear the plumbing in adjoining rooms but it was otherwise quiet. I was surprised to have to allow a $100 charge on my credit card at check-in, though, which they assured would be reversed within ten working days as long as I didn't take anything from the minibar!

Room Tip: If you'd like a view, ask for a room overlooking the waterfront.

We stayed here late November, and wow! I'm sure we got a great price because of the time of year, but I would expect to pay a lot more given the location.
We had a room overlooking the Stokes Hill Wharf and out to the ocean, which was perfect for the storm watching we had planned (pity the weather didn't really come to the party on that one)
The room was comfortable and clean, and importantly (according to a lot of the other Darwin reviews on here) didn't smell musty or mouldy at all! The shower was a little disappointing though, I would have thought for the rating of the hotel the shower over bath combo was a little cheap, tacky and dated... the water pressure to the shower head also seemed a little lacking.
But most importantly after a long sweaty day out sightseeing, the air conditioning was cool (make sure you leave the cleaning crew a note to leave it on!) and the bed was comfortable. Although the fire alarm going off at 5 am was annoying, it did encourage an early start that day and meant we weren't rushing around to get everything planned for that day done!

We'd definitely stay again!

Room Tip: Ocean views are a must, we asked for a free upgrade and got it... but that will be dependant on avai...

I have stayed here twice and have enjoyed the location, the ambience of the room and comfort of the king size bed.

Like all Darwin hotels their prices vary seasonally, so I can only afford to stay in the off season - and a wotif special @ $119 per night. As I'm up here every 3 months, it's a pity they don't have a loyalty scheme for people who are here on business on a regular basis, as their prices fluctuate badly.

My only negative comment is beware of getting into the shower over the bath. It is extremely narrow in climbing in and out and the bath is slippery. Easy to injure yourself as the bath is high.

Room Tip: Apparently all good things in life are free, however if you want a view it's $20 extra per night...

We loved the location, very close to the city centre and a great variety of restaurants. Parking was good. We were able to leave our hire car in the car park and walk to shops and cafes We would definitely stay there again.

I stayed as part of a company meeting and overall found the hotel very good. The conference coordinator and staff were very good however the general level of service from other staff was hit and miss.

My room had no towels, daily cleans took place some days but not others and billing for the rooms was all over the place with some of our conference attendees having to pay for breakfast despite it being part of the overall room price negotiated. Front desk staff generally very good but a few staff should not be in hospitality!

Good location and overall recommended but please take more attention in the detail.
