We stayed at the Waterfront Hotel as it was the collection & dropoff point for shuttles to the wedding we were attending. Although the hotel was nice, well presented and clean, I found it to be overpriced for what it was. On arrival our room was stifling hot as the aircon hadn't been on - we ended up stripping down to our underwear while waiting for the aircon to kick in and sufficiently cool the room. Our room had no view which was ok because I wasn't really expecting one, but we still heard the trucks thundering past to the port at all hours of the day and night. Also, the bed was very much on the 'firm' side of the spectrum. The only big 'thumbs up' was the free parking available on a first in, best served basis. All up, not a bad stay for our purposes, but not somewhere I would choose to stay again.
