This place is very nice, and I found my room comfortable and quiet (although I am not sure if everyone likes an open-plan bathroom, as is so common in newer hotels these days). The staff is friendly, but they might not be able to help you at night if you have some big issue (the previous poster is not off the mark on several points, incl. the hype factor). The last day I was there, I heard someone in the office arguing very loudly with a tour company--very unprofessional. The breakfast is nice, but one morning it did seem to be picked over and not replenished.
I am not sure why this is called a hotel, when it is actually a guest house. Maybe because of zoning requirements or some other law? Who knows? It is pretty expensive compared to many other places around town, but then again, if you want to stay at a place with no kids running around, this is it. It also has free Internet, something many hotels in South Africa charge dearly for. With a name like Villa Zest it obviously caters to more of the velvet mafia crowd.
The hotel is within walking distance to many restaurants and nice shopping, but the neighborhood might be a little too "up and coming" for everyone's tastes. There are some very aggressive panhandlers down the street--even at 8 in the morning.
