My wife and I have just returned from 5 incredible days spent at this magnificent hotel. It is without doubt the best place to stay in the whole of Cape Town. All of the rooms are amazing, and we stayed in the Penthouse Suite which had the most incredible balcony, bathroom and bedroom. Marnie and Russ the owners were awesome...

Thank you Gilad, it really was a pleasure meeting you both and helping you enjoy your last piece of relaxation and quietness during your babymoon was a absolute joy.

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...

My husband and I recently visited Cape Town to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff at 52 De Wet were very hospitable from the onset.

Feel like in your own luxury home. The very calm accommodation invites to stay some days. Very friendly staff, very good food, very clean, small with only eight rooms. 24 hour reception and SPA - nothing missing. We loved to stay at the pool with a great view to Cape Town.

Even the balcony overlooking the ocean was stylishly furnished. Breakfasts were feasts, delicious, and no request was too much for the enthusisastic and able staff. Even snacks for room service were outstanding. We asked...
