Relax and enjoy the vibe

Vibe Hotel from Ferny Avenue (Gold Coast Highway).


Vibe Hotel Gold Coast on the Gold Coast Highway (Ferny Avenue) is near Cavill Avenue, the Esplanade and light rail, ferry and bus stop. There are shopping centres beneath the many other surrounding skyscrapers, making it an affordable and convenient place to stay.

Facts about the hotel:

The pool was large, had a good length and the water, very clear against a blue surface. It is located near a bar, so you can have a drink by the pool. The King Room comes with a safe, non-smoking, tremendous view in my case of some of the sea, rooftop gardens, the street below and other big-name hotels surrounding. The bathroom and bed were clean and polished. Some steps were taken to make the room hygienic beyond expectation and tea and coffee was made with a delightfully small kettle that slowly boils super hot water - served in paper cups. There was no china or spoons and no way to cook. There is also a tiny fridge but based on what I've seen, you're not really booked in to sit in there and do housework. It's more for a genuine escape or holiday, so the idea is to rest, not to work.

Shopping nearby
is pretty good, Cavill Avenue is round the block, as are two light rail stops, a ferry stop at nearby Appel Park, and a bus stop outside. There is a lot to see and do, so the Vibe Hotel is good because it's priced at a happy medium, so you can book for longer but still enjoy luxury. The staff are really nice and helpful. I had my room ready in no time at all and I get to check out at 11am, which was based on my reservation which I paid upfront for - and a $50 bond payable on arrival, so that seemed reasonable for Gold Coast 4 star stays. Paid $143 AUD for one night at short notice, mid-March, midweek. There's a lot to this, with parking charged onsite (self not valet), it's near the SkyPoint Observation deck, there is laundry, multi-lingual staff, fitness centre, 24-hour reception, conference facilities, while the reception staff highly recommended the level two bar.

I think, based on what I have seen in several accommodation options, is the Gold Coast is a unique market because it has such a concentration of or density of accommodation options.

Each Balcony has seating.


I'm happy to return to the Gold Coast despite the hustle and bustle. While it's a tremendous backdrop for working away at the computer, I find Surfers Paradise very interesting and the Gold Coast CBD is uniquely full-on. Thanks to the Vibe Hotel, they got me some pleasant people to check me in, a comfy room with a great view, thus a hint of serenity in this busy city. Thanks for a great value mid-week escape on the Gold Coast.
