I would come back. The rooms are good. The location is fantastic. The views on the harbour side are wonderful. The corridors are very long and boring. The dining staff are sweet and helpful. I really liked the bed. It was very comfortable.

Stayed here for one night. Very comfortable and heaps of places to eat and walk around. A little hidden away but once you are orientated, it is easy to get to if you need to be at the end of the Darwin city peninsula.

We were not very impressed with the check in procedure and the staff were very dismissive and not very helpful. Just a little thing like explaining the car park properly would have saved us a lot of grief and wasted time.

We also paid $50 for a so called upgrade. All I can say if this was an upgraded room I am not impressed. Room was small with quite a small window and not really much if a view though it cost $50 for that pleasure. To top it off, the beds were way too hard and, as another reviewer pointed out, the pillows were pathetic. Had a really bad night. Couldn't sleep at all. Worse still the air conditioning didn't seem to work. Thank goodness we weren't there in summer. I lay in a pool of sweat all night and there wasn't even a fan to alleviate the issue.

We ordered the "healthy" breakfast but not very impressed with it my poached eggs were ok but balsamic vinegar for breakfast? Also had the smoothie but it was way too thick and couldn't drink it.

The location isn't too bad but I would prefer to be right in the city. I was not particularly impressed with this place and wouldn't be staying here again.

Dear BrisCaz,

Firstly, I would like to thank you for taking the time to post a review about Vibe Hotel Darwin Waterfront. I am disappointed to hear that your stay did not meet your expectations.

I would like to sincerely apologise that you found the staff dismissive, this is not the culture we have built into all our team members, and is extremely out of character for the hotel. If you would like discuss the matter further please contact the hotel directly on 08 8982 9999.

We truly appreciate your feedback about the hotel and will ensure that your feedback are passed onto all of our departments and teams.

In regards to your air-conditioning not functioning properly, this is another issue that is not a usual occurrence for the hotel. I do however urge you to contact reception any time of the day if you are unhappy or uncomfortable, the team is here 24hours a day to make sure you have the best stay.

Thank you again for sharing the experience of your stay with us and we do hope that you will consider staying with us again so we can give you a true Vibe Hotel experience, one that we are very well known for.

Kind regards,

Dannielle Jenkinson

The stay at the Vibe hotel was the last 2 days of a week in NT celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The staff were excellent and were upgraded to the top floor and a bottle of sparkly was brought to our room on arrival. Thanks Vibe!

Great location, lovely room and we had a good time. The waterfront access is excellent with a nice walk to the shops. The hotel pool is in the shade and cool but we went to the wave pool so it wasn't a problem.

Well located to many attractions including the waterfront area & restaurants, wave-pool, WWII tunnels, bus station, walk to city centre. Shuttle bus to market was also useful. Would stay here again if we travel north again.
