Vibe Hotel Darwin Waterfront

Reviewed 6 April 2012

Really enjoyed this hotel though I did not do much except mooch around the room after work. Stayed five nights, had room service used the gym. It also has a bar, restaurant and wave pool and is located near govt house, 10 minutes from the cbd. Clean room, good checkin and checkout and very quiet at night. Note if you are walking around as I was the 10 minutes from the cbd can be a very hot walk. No hesitation staying again.

Room was tidy on arrival. There was a breafast menu. Selection on Room Service Menu left a lot to be desired. Very limited menu! No breakfast menu left in room for the next 3 days... had to ring & have one sent up. Excuse - "they didn't have time to leave one" What??? Fridge was not cold - freezer did not work. Not everything on the mini bar list was there at check in. No Carpark pass as promised. Room was barely serviced each day, Toiletries were not topped up each day. Location is great - pity about the rest.

A fantastic location- close to waterfront, restaurants and the wave pool, walking distance to CBD via handy walkway. Staff were attentive and friendly. The pool was a great place to enjoy cocktails and a leisurely swim. Rooms were clean, spacious and loved the little balcony to sit and relax. Very good value.

I stayed at the Vibe for one night for a meeting in Darwin. After a long flight I was greeted by a professional and friendly young man. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. I had a great view of the water and it was an easy walk into the CBD. My only criticism is any noise in the corridor can be heard in the rooms (and presumably visa-versa). I was awoken a few times during the night – not sure if the noise was staff or guests. Maybe this could be fixed by a strip between the door and the entry floor? The breakfast was nice, and I would recommend the Vibe.

Location is excellent, walking distance to Smith Street Mall and Restaurants.The room although on the small side was comfortable and much to my surprise the air conditioning was quiet , even the lift opposite my door didn't bother me although it was the wet season and the hotel was far from busy. What did bother me was the stains around the toilet bowl base, that looked like Urine stains But could have been a leaking toilet, Whatever not a Good Look ! Having stayed in a lot of Hotels for work i am particular at always checking the bill, My concern was Products from the bar not refilled and even missing when i first entered the room, and sure enough they wanted to charge for items i didn't have. They have a large car park attached to the hotel and parking rates are reasonable, Try to work out the maze though getting from Car park to hotel rooms, takes several goes before you get it right. All in All i will stay again for a second chance.
