I spent four nights at the Paxton Hotel for work. The hotel is small, with nicely decorated rooms and reception area and a small swimming pool. The breakfast was plentiful - eggs, sausages, hashbrowns (not every day), selection of pastries, cereals, bread and fruit. The hotel does not have a restaurant if you needed to have lunch/dinner. There is a 'kitchen' which offers room service and the menu is very limited. If you do not eat chicken/meat and did not want vegetarian, there was only one seafood option on the menu. The kitchen staff is not very flexible as I requested if I could have a light snack that would suit my dietary needs and was told its not possible. The major issue I had with this hotel is that there is nothing around the hotel - you need to take a cab to get anywhere. You can't go for a walk around the hotel. The stars of this hotel are the reception staff. They are very friendly and helpful. Check in/check out was quick and they arranged cabs for when we had to go out for a meal. They called the Kragga Kamma Game Park to arrange for our mini-safari and booked the cab for us. Because of its location far from everything, this is not a hotel that I would recommend (unless you have your own means of transport).
