Vibe Hotel Gold Coast
Ranked #18 of 31 Hotels in Surfers Paradise
Reviewed 26 September 2010

This was a very nice hotel but beware that some of the rooms have the balcony doors locked so that you cannot access the balcony. This is whilst the balconys are being renovated. Room was spacious with a lovely view of the river. Breakfast was very nice aswell. Parking was $8 per night undercover.

Thh Vibe Hotel has been recently renovated so is very new inside. You can tell though that it was previously an old hotel.

We stayed 4 nights in early September 2020. The rooms were comfortable and quite spacious and had a balcony. We chose a river-facing room and loved the views. The "king" bed was actually 2 doubles pushed together - but it worked well and was very comfortable. The staff were very helpful although checkout on a Tuesday morning took a lot longer than I would have expected because there was only one receptionist on duty. Not a hassle - we weren't pushed for time - but just something I noted in comparison to similar quality hotels we have stayed at in the past. Hotel is fabulously located to the centre of Surfers Paradise and you dont need a car or taxi as all the shops and eating places are only minutes away on foot. The only real downsides we noted (if you can call them that) were the TV in the room was positively ancient (worked fine - just looked crappy compared to the modern HD Tvs) and parking could be a hassle because spaces are limited. To be perfectly honest, it costs $8 per day to park there and for that price you are not guaranteed a space. Its first come, first served and if there is no spaces left when you get there you are told to double-park and leave the keys at reception. Which is fine I guess - unless they damage your car inadvertently if they have to move it because the car you have blocked in wants to go out! Again, not a major issue - just something to be aware of.
We had breakfast included in the room rate - but if I was paying separately for it I wouldnt have been overly impressed with the offerings! Its fine - but very basic.

All in all, we enjoyed the stay and would recommend it to others as a very convenient and nice place to stop at to explore Surfers Paradise and enjoy what is on offer there.

We had a good stay, the room was clean, and quite trendy. The bed very comfortable. I'm not sure which side is the aqua view as one side faces the city and beach if you are up high and the other a river. We paid for aqua and were city view, but didn't say anything as we were on the 18th floor and the view was great.

Only complaint for us was the walls were a little thin, or the neighbors were load. Not sure which or maybe a bit of both. The hotel itself was beautiful. Very trendy and open, we loved it. They had a beautiful pool as well.

I wouldn't recommend the $20 buffet breakfast though as it was quite limited for the price and when things run out they don't replace them or at least not at 9:00am (I think it runs from 7:00am - 10:00).

Staff was friendly and helpful and everything was very easy from check-in to check out. Underground parking is expensive though. $22 a night I believe.

Ok so they say first impressions count and unfortunately mine wasn't that great - the guy on the front desk had a couldn't care less attitude - he was friendly but vey casual and of no real help . To be honest I found all the reception staff pretty casual and lacking knowledge of the hotel for eg: I asked if they had an ice machine and was told "I'm not real sure " Can you tell me how to use the safe " I don't know I'll have to get the manager" , does the room have a compendium ? "I'm not sure I think it is now on the TV " But yes they were all friendly and polite.

Now the rooms were great - I had a river view on the 18th floor , it was very quiet enabling great nice sleeps but the view was worth a million dollars , sunsets were spectacular over the hills and the night lights very pretty. The rooms were of a good size and had modern fittings with bright modern furnishings. The KIng size bed however was two singles pushed together which may get uncomfortable for couples .

It's a safe 5 minute walk up to Cavill avenue at any time of day , Supermarkets are across the road so everything is very handy .

I would stay here again but make sure you get a riverside room as highway facing rooms could be quite noisy

Great pool and spa right on the rivers edge !

Fantstic hotel in a great location, rooms were large and had fantastics views, ours looked out over the canal at the side of the hotel and also onto the beach at the front. Pool and spa were lovely and very very clean, also gym was available although I didnt use it. Breakfasts were also good.

Hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Located near the central shopping strip, the hotel can be easily accessed from any of the rail stations or airport (30 min bus ride from Nerang rail station or 15 taxi trip). Rooms are spacious, clean and features brightly-coloured walls and furniture of modern designs. The view from the room balconies overseeing the river is amazing, especially at sunset.
