We stayed at the Sandton Boutique Hotel - 28a on Oxford for 3 nights in mid-August, and were lucky enough to score a free upgrade. The hotel is quite lovely, with period furniture and thatched roofs. The room was large and quiet. The bathroom was also large, but the water pressure wasn't great. There is a pool (looked lovely, but we didn't use it) and beautiful gardens with plenty of places to relax. Breakfast was abundant and very good, however, there is no restaurant for lunch or dinner. A shuttle or taxi is required to travel to nearby shopping centres or restaurant precincts (approx $A10/R100) - not an issue if you have a car, and there is secure parking on-site. We walked from Sandton Shopping Centre to the hotel when we first arrived, but it was a long up-hill walk and a taxi would be a better option if you have bags. There is no airconditioning, so the room gets a little warm, but it wasn't unbearable.
