“Excellent location!”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

We arrived late at night to find the hotel just a few paces from the bus stop. The location is fabulous! All of the services and entertainment you could want are just a short walk away. We didn't need a car as we could walk to virtually anywhere we wanted to go. The theme parks were accessible by bus, which was almost outside the door. The staff at the hotel were all very helpful whenever we had a query. The room was nicely furnished and decorated: not large but reasonably sized. We were happy with the bathroom and balcony as well. We could close the curtains so we weren't woken by the sunrise at 5 am! The buffet breakfast was decent without being spectacular. The pool area was relaxing, though the water was quite cold. There was a bridge over the middle of the pool, which looked nice, but as half the pool was quite shallow it wasn't really suitable for lap swimming. The spa wasn't working on our first day. But once it was, it became very popular, especially in the afternoons. We didn't avail ourselves of the 'happy hour' in the bar, or the $15- meal and drink deals. But they seemed like good value. We had a room over-looking the river. The view was wonderful and it was quiet. I'd certainly recommend this hotel to other travellers.

Room Tip: I'd recommend the rooms over looking the river.

Just got back from an overnight stay. Was given an upgrade to a studio room (with kitchenette) on check in which was great. The dude at the counter was awesome, fast and hassle-free. Loved the balcony, gotta have a balcony on surfers yea! The view was just lovely and I like how the location of the hotel is relatively quiet, no noisy crowds. Room was pretty nice for its price too, I just appreciated the good bed, especially in comparison to the more expensive accommodation nearby. I liked.

I had truly enjoyed my first stay at the Vibe Hotel in Aug 2012 that's why I stayed at the same property in April 2013. The location is excellent, it's literally a stone's throw away from Cavill Avenue. Coles and Woolworth's (huge groceries) are right in front of the hotel. For the location alone, this hotel should be charging much higher rates but the great thing is they charge very very reasonably. The rooms are huge with a balcony, dining room, even a microwave and plates & utensils. Awesome place. My only rant is that they dont have wifi so I usually walk to McDonalds in Surfer's Paradise to get free wifi.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the canals

The best place to stay in the GC. Close to shops, close to the bus stop (right outside), Oz Fair, & Broadbeach. Really nice place with accommodating staff. River views - the prefect place for RnR. This was our 2nd time back at the Vibe and WE WILL BE BACK! Wouldn't stay anywhere else. Thank you to all the hospitable staff - The McRaes NZ.

Room Tip: Gotta have a room overlooking the Nerang River facing Broadbeach.

A once stylish hotel that is now showing its age, particularly on fixtures & fittings such as the bathroom & balcony areas.

Moreover, the hotel has no Wireless service in rooms - even for a charge!! Only offering a wired service - in a generation of mobile devices, this is crazy.

My room was high up and had a river view which was nice and it's in a decent location but that aside it was very disappointing

We stayed here as it was a mystery hotel which worked out to be a bit less than $100 a night. We were hoping for something with views of the ocean, but as it is too far from the sea we got a nice view of the river. The service desk staff were wonderful and helpful. When we got to our room we turned on the air conditioning (situated right above the bed) and it sounded like someone was having a shower above us! Didn't want to sleep with that sound over us all night so turned it off. The light above the basin needed to be changed, so we requested that and it was done the next day, but then after that it shorted out again. My husband wasn't feeling so good so he wanted to go to sleep early which was fine but the lights in the bedroom are connected to the living area lights so had to leave them on in order for me to be on the computer in the adjoining area. Our room was right next to the 'Bistro' next door which meant that everytime they tipped out their glass bottles for recycling/rubbish we knew about it. The information books that are normally supplied in hotels was a single page in this hotel. Parking is an extra per day fee, but be aware that if the secure parking is full and you park on the ramp or in the front driveway (which is not secure) they will still charge the same fee. To get the shower going you need to hold up this little pull up thingie for the bath taps and hold it there until the flow from the shower head starts to kick in. Don't stay there if you are tall, (around 6ft) as the shower head was only just above my head and I'm about average height and it comes out horizontally so can't be adjusted much for height. The pull out clothes line above the bath area only pulled out to a fraction of the length of where it should join up at the other end, so that was of no use. There are no easily accessible power points near the bedside so charging the phone etc was done in the kitchen. The feel of this place was that is was an older hotel which has tried to be done up/renovated but doesn't have the 'vibe' that they tried to get. On the plus side we saw that the local buses which take tourists to the various theme parks is only a few steps away from the entrance. Very close nearby there is Woolies and Coles.
