Vibe Hotel Gold Coast
Ranked #18 of 31 Hotels in Surfers Paradise
Reviewed 19 March 2012

Booked the Vibe Gold Coast at late notice for a recent Sunday night stay. Compared online rates and got the best deal including breakfast. Quick check-in, nice room with balcony and view of canals and hinterland. So close to everything in Surfers Paradise. Vibe is a nice brand, I've tried many of them and for me they represent clean, comfortable and pretty reasonable. This Vibe is a conversion from a previous hotel but the whole thing has been done pretty well. The breakfast buffet is perfectly adequate and filling but don't expect anything gourmet. It's pretty cheap if it's not included in your room rate. I slept very well.

Room Tip: Ask for the canal/hinterland side for a great sleep

It's worth it. Great staff, excellent prices, great location, amazing views over the canals/river, free upgrade, comfortable rooms, and a great night's sleep. What more could you ask for? It was worth it and I would do it again!

This was my first stay in the Gold Coast. There are so many hotels to choose from so literally booked this as a recommendation.

I checked in early and my room wasn't ready until 2pm which is usual. Reception was friendly.

The room itself was on the 15th floor. It is a good size, double bed with balcony and facing the beach. The Pacific Highway was underneath but not busy as you would assume for a highway! You could walk to the Surfers Boulevard in five minutes. It is not a new hotel just slightly modernised. It had a safe and hair dryer, bath/ shower. Would I stay there again? Probably not simply because there are so many new hotels there now.

Car park costs A$8 a day which is cheap for Australia!

If you there for a few days I definitely would recommend it!

Room Tip: away from street/ high floor

We arrived late at night after transferring from Brisbane airport to the Gold coast. Despite arriving after midnight the desk was staffed and the staff were fast and friendly. The rooms were ok, a little dated, the bed was hard but I like that. The Air con was noisy as, every Vibe I have stayed in has had noisy AC. The 11am check out is good plenty of time to get up sort your life out. The breakfast for 15 dollars was average but filled the gap, pay an extra $1.50 around the corner for eggs benedict. Apart from those minor complaints I would stay there again for sure.

We stayed here for 2 nights and must have gotten a good deal because we didn't find the hotel as overpriced as other reviewers have. After an initial problem when booking in (double room booked, turned out to be a triple room) the night manager was very helpful, eventually moving us to another room which was an upgrade to a suite. All facilities were good and both rooms were of a high standard with the only notable problem being that the shower head is low, not great for tall people. Breakfast had plenty of options and good coffee and location was great; less than a 5 minute walk to surfers paradise beach.

Vibe hotel was a bit of a let down to say the least. it definitely is not worth the amount we paid for it. From first contact at check in we were not greeted at all and the staff were very unfriendly (In particular staff member Anastasia on the front desk has very poor customer service skills). We arrived at 11am after a botch transfer from a flight that landed at 8am we were really tired and keen to get to our room. We were told it wasn't cleaned yet so we returned at 1.30pm and they said it still wasn't cleaned for a 2pm check in. We thought they could have been more accommodating since it was apparent we had a difficult morning. The room, however, was very clean and pleasant - as opposed to the exterior of the hotel which was extremely run down. The curtains by the pool were hanging ripped, there was rust all over the pool bridge and it needs some serious maintenance. Not 4 star at all- completely different to the photos. Room service was mixed, with some fast responses but more slow responses and in some cases no response at all to our request.

Positively, the bar staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and drinks reasonably priced during happy hour. The riverside location of the pool is nice but the fence blocks most views.

The location of the hotel is the best thing about the hotel- however there were many other hotels in this area that would offer a more pleasant stay and more worth the money.
Overall, not very good- would not go back and would recommend hunting around as there were a lot of hotels in this area with vacancies.

Dear Reublie,

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at Vibe Hotel Gold Coast. We appreciate the time you have taken to provide us with your feedback.

I do apologise that we were not able to have a room ready for you at 8am on your day of arrival. The hotel team will do their very best to look after our early arrivals, however some times due to occupancy & the type of room booked this is not as easy as it sounds. I am also shocked to hear about the service provided by Anastasia, Anastasia is a team member that regularly receives positive feed back via email & in our guest comment cards that are located in the rooms.

If would love to discuss this with you. I am contactable on 07) 5539 0444 if you would like to discuss the matter at any stage.

Kind regards,
