From check-in to check-out the staff we're very accommodating and very friendly, the room very was extremely clean and the extra towels I'd asked for had already been left in my room for me. The pool area has a great view, with a "chill" vibe & many enjoyable cocktails from the bartender Jeffrey who made fantastic recommendations when I was indecisive about trying a couple new drinks! For coffee lovers such as ourselves, the restaurant serves a beautiful & stocks all the speciality milks I like! Food in the restaurant is down right delicious! From my perfectly cooked omelettes every morning to the beef ribs & salads we had for lunches & the battered fish and chips in between everything was Perfect! The chefs Joe & Goh are assests to the business & staff I'd happily hire in my own restaurant. Thank you to all the staff at reception for the assistance checking in on time, being so friendly, polite and accommodating. Highly recommend place to stay!

I really liked this hotel. Good location, good food nearby and handy car parking across the road. Should have taken bathers as the rooftop pool is pretty cool The rooftop bar wasn’t open but still a good spot to sit

Good afternoon Dear Breht, It is great reading about your recent stay at Vibe Darling Harbour. On behalf of the entire team we want to take the time to say thank you for trusting us to fulfill your expectations. It is truly a shame you didn't get the opportunity to experience the rooftop bar. Please note, following the easing of restrictions we also aim to be operating back to normal. However, in the meantime, feel free to join us either Friday or Saturday for a drink on beautiful rooftop bar. If there is anything further we can do, please do not hesitate to contact us. Yours sincerely, Fernando Rousseau Duty Manager

Online pictures are amazing but that's the only amazing thing you will see. You pay minimum $250 a room to enjoy a nice swimming pool, nice view, good service, relaxing time, and covid safe... What you get: -$40 extra fees for a parking -A extra baby bed that takes the whole bedroom corridor, and you never asked for it -A lift where you need to wait for at least 10 minutes to catch -A nice swimming pool that is occupied by 10 families with kids and their pool toys, people are smoking and eating their Maccas -A bar where you ask for the mocktail of the day and they serve you sparkling water with 2 slices of strawberry If you are looking for an hostel / Disneyland journey this the perfect place for you. If you are looking for a cosy place as you may see on the pictures ruuuuunnnn away! So dispointed, really not worth it... I will be glad if we do not catch covid during our stay.

Dear Julie_Mgnt, Thank you for supplying the hotel with feedback from your recent stay in an honest fashion, this allows us to focus on key areas of improvement to ensure that we continue to strive to both meet and exceed customer expectations. You have flagged several short comings during your stay that did not meet up to your expectation. As the hotel is high demand over peak periods, our pool can at points reach high capacity levels, currently with COVID restrictions capped at 20 people. In order for this to mitigate a negative guest experience we do implore visitor to limit their time in the space to 90 minutes per session to allow others to enjoy this space. In reference to parking, the Vibe Darling Harbour like many other hotels in the city do not own their own. We have a discounted affiliation with the carpark across the road for $40 per 24hrs for a one entrance pass that is clearly advertised on all websites. However, the city is abundant with street parking which our guests are more than welcome to explore as alternate potential more economical option. Lastly, I can confirm that unfortunately during your stay period, one of the hotel's 3 elevators was out of commission which did lead to a more than standard wait period. This has since been repaired however we understand the flow on effect this created for both our guests and operations alike. The team and I were disappointed to see the several areas where we were unable to meet your expectations and will evaluate this such to improve on what we can offer for our future guests. Kind regards, Alexander

Room wasn’t cleaned after we had spent the whole day outside in the city celebrating our 3 yr anniversary. Thought we would have come back to a clean fresh room, nothing had been done. I went downstairs and asked reception why our room hadn’t been cleaned. The staff said they’ll do it now, I said no. It’s 10pm what’s the point, just please can I have couple of fresh towels . We have stayed at the vine hotel numerous times. Bit this was truly a turn around . We will be going elsewhere from now on.

Dear tinaaa73, Thank you for taking the time to share you feedback, which is vital in our pursuit of continually improve the service we can offer. On behalf of the team, we apologize for the short fall regarding both the communication and lack of further linen supplied when requested. With national housekeeping shortages and supply chain issues plaguing the hospitality industry we have intermittently experienced a fall in the expectation we pride ourselves on in terms of the service we can deliver. While this is the hotel's prerogative, we in turn hold ourselves accountable in the way we can effectively communicate this with our guests and rest assured, your feedback will be used in the best possible light in how we operate as a business moving forward. Once again, thank you for taking the time to supply your honest experience which we will embrace and use to refine how we cater to our future guests. Kind regards,

Check in smooth, QR code easily accessed. Room very clean and spacious. Bed comfortable. Plenty of power outlets, tv has Chromecast. Bathroom very large, lovely rainfall showerhead, great temp and pressure. Air con quite on low setting and view not terrible as we faced the city on floor 13. Downside is that post covid lockdown no roof top bar although very packed at pool. Pool cabanas need booking times as no one monitors them and people hold them all day and not space for others. Menu is pricey but that's Sydney and no room service however daily housekeeping is awesome.
