We stayed at 52 De Wet for 4 nights to unwind from our journey from the UK & found it the perfect place to stay. The setting looking across Bantry Bay was amazing. The staff couldn't have been more helpful & it was like staying in a private house rather than a hotel. Breakfast was superb with lots of choice...

what a fantastic location to completely unwind with fantastic view over the ocean. Not only was the service fantastic, fabulous spa but to top it all we were able to relax in the plunge pool and watch pods of dolphins and whales swimming past.

I spent 3 nights at this stunning boutique hotel in October when on my 50th birthday holiday with my teenage son! We loved it and cant wait to return to South Africa, Cape Town and wouldn't want to stay at another location. I have had the pleasure of travelling to many places around the world, but this was my paradise!...

A stylish, well presented contemporary hotel, without being "cold". The attention and kindness of everyone on the team was superb. Stunning views. We would definitely recommend to any visitors to Cape Town that wish to be out of the main city, but close enough to enjoy going into the city centre. Breakfasts were fresh as well as home-made bread each...
