Location was good and rooms were fine but customer service could be improved. Room wasn't made up and one of the staff members on last day had a very blasé attitude about a number of issues including the hotel keys she stuffed up several times and it took me ages to get into room. The room was also a long... More

Great location but the rooms at the back face the carpark which is pretty ugly. Great beds...I slept like a log both nights. The harbour is now really nice and this would be a good location for families down near the wave pool and restaurants

Rude, unfriendly, untrained staff. The hotel is in a great location but the staff really let this hotel down! Would never stay here again!! When we first arrived we were not even greeted we were just asked to wait (10 mins) while the manager and her colleague just kept answering phones! There is a sign in reception regarding tours saying... More

Great location. Great view of the waterfront but just two small issues (1) When having breakfast the girl serving had to go away check on whether or not we were entitled to the 2 for 1 breakfast deal which was in our room package. (2) Very noisy air conditioning in our room and quite noticeable when trying to sleep otherwise... More

No mini bar in room so ordered a drink and was then charged $4.00 delivery. Hotel aircon set way to high and could not adjust. Comfortable extra wide bed. Excellent location for hotel. Checking in with reception was not advised of any hotel facilities etc.

Requested two small beds and got one large. Also there was no milk in fridge for coffees. We didn't complain to staff as we were happy to let it slide. Otherwise everything else was good and we had a good stay

Hotels have to be clean & up to date & have good restaurants but the staff are what make & break the guests' impression. That is so important. It starts from the top. Management have got to make staff so important & part of the team that they want to come to work. Then whether they are a toilet cleaner... More

Excellent hotel, well situated for many activities and restaurants. Rooms were clean, tidy and comfortable. Highly recommended. Pickup point for 'The Ghan' so it was really convenient to help us with our future travel itinerary.

I often stay at the Vibe when I travel to Darwin for business. It is a nice location and the hotel is clean and comfortable. The breakfast is overpriced and average. I recommend you walk away from the hotel and have breakfast elsewhere.

Superb location but the hotel itself is just average. Staff are great. Our room was under the tiled walkway to Darwin CBD so it was a bit noisy if skateboarders or ladies in high heels were walking overhead. Suggest avoiding 4th floor under the walkway if you can.
