Stayed here for a couple of nights as our first point of call to South Africa for the World Cup. The hotel is clean, simple yet comfortable and the breakfast is very good. The staff were friendly and particularly because of the World Cup they kept a close vigil on goings on in and around the hotel, which was good. There was some noise due to the location of the hotel on a main road near bars and restaurants but our room at the end of the hall was mostly removed from this. The upside to the location was being able to walk everywhere during the day and to nearby activities at night.
Tip: A lot of people will tell you to eat at Butcher Boys (if you like meat). It's good, but for value I would rather just eat at Spurs. It's hard to find a bad meat restaurant in South Africa.
