An absolutely lovely boutique hotel, with great privacy whilst feeling just like home. The food and service were outstanding, not to mention the view!! We had a great stay and sunset drinks by the pool are a must... we will definitely be back!

Excellent friendly hotel in a really good location and with fantastic views. Staff really helpful and friendly and super room which was comfortable for 4 of us due to the split bedrooms. Lots of communal space too.

This small boutique hotel is one of the most relaxing and friendly places we have stayed in our time in South Africa. The house is beautifully styled to ensure your comfort and relaxation and the food and hospitality match. The staff go the extra mile to ensure you feel welcomed and at home with extra touches such as free items...

We recently spent 6 nights at this brilliant boutique hotel. It may be small in size, but it packs a punch in hospitality and friendliness. From cheerful and unfailingly helpful and friendly staff (car guard to front desk to breakfast servers to night staff), to the stunning view, to the delicious food and easy bar service on offer, to the...

Thank you so much, i will pass on the compliments to the team. I'm very glad you also mentioned the lack of wind, Bantry Bay is the only place in Cape Town you will find 'wind free' throughout the summer season.

Great location, view & staff! We came for our son's wedding and enjoyed the hotel before we flew out to go home. Very nice clean rooms and had salads for lunch at the hotel. All worked out beautifully

This small boutique hotel is very special...for its spectacular position overlooking the sea but away from the busy bustle of Cape Town, and also for its beautiful ambiance, and then also its extremely good service and attention to guests. An outstanding breakfast offering and dinners by arrangement. We could not have been more pleased and will doubtless return.

We are extremely fortunate to have such an incredible view and it's great to hear that we could compliment it with our service. Please make sure you do return.

This place is cozy and exclusive, top service. The penthouse was so nice, hard to leave. I usually will search for a month when searching for a place to stay. For Cape Town I looked at most of the hotels, balancing cost and accommodations, this place really stood out.

52 De Wet is an impressive modern residence that has been converted into a hotel or more accurately a B&B. The house is located in an upmarket residential area on the side of a steep hill. The views are over the sea and are spectacular. There is limited parking available but the security guard is helpful in locating a space....

Edward. Thank you for the review of your 1 night stay with us @52, it's a real shame that you were unable to join us for our fine dining dinner or enjoy any of the snacks that we offer throughout the day (no pre order required), along with afternoon tea or the complimentary snacks during sunset.
