Consider this a superior alternative to the brand hotels. Tucked away in a lovely and upscale neighborhood with breathtaking oceanfront and mountain views, 52 De Wet offers the comforts of a lovely home with the service of a great hotel. Proprietors Marnie and Russ are high energy, offer fun and personalized recommendations, and are happy to help. (I had a favorite garment sent to the dry cleaner and back same day.) Staff is lovely. Resident cat David is a great delight. Cocktails on the deck at sunset, easy Uber rides to all the great restaurants. Delicious breakfasts included.

Stayed: July 2018

Great views, great ambiance and awesome care and service. Breakfast was good and plentiful. The art and sculptures added a touch of class to the decor, but again, the views. The view! Captured one of the best sunsets ever, while enjoying a glass of Shiraz. Spectacular!

It’s been nearly 3 years since I last stayed here and the quality and service is still at an extremely high level. Marnie and Russel are the perfect hosts from welcoming you until you have to sadly leave. I will be making this a regular when in Cape Town for the future.

Thank you so much for your kind review, it was lovely to welcome you again.
Please make 52 a regular stop, as you know we can organise a nice direct booking rate when you are a returning guest.
Until next time, take care.

This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Quality, Food, Friendly staff, Comfort, Views, Location and everything else.

The staff couldn't be more helpful in every area.. We even had the joy of tasting the owner (Russell's) homemade menu which was fantastic as it introduced us to the local cuisine with his own twist.

We were very happy with our stay.

Thank you to all the great staff for making us feel so welcome..

Room Tip: aim to be around the pool/ balcony area around sunset as they offer complimentary fizz if the sun is out..
