Good location, very close to the waterfront and had the Westfield shopping centre behind it. There wasn't a whole lot of eateries around, apart from the 3-4 on the waterfront.

Nice room, comfy bed, good views but the shower is absolutely piddly?! Huge shower head but absolutely low pressure!! Feels like it takes 10 mins to actually get wet!! Not good after a big days travel. They could swap the shower head over to something that gives decent pressure!
