52 De Wet was our first stop on our five week honeymoon, and our only regret was that was didn't stay longer! The rooms are stunning, the hotel has incredible views of Bantry Bay, the food was amazing (their breakfast spread is to-die-for), and Marnie and Russell were so lovely and incredibly helpful. They both went above and beyond to... More

I can't speak highly enough of 52 de Wet: the hotel is absolutely stunning. The location first of all is perfect: you are close to everything, but slightly higher up so you have stunning views and none of the winds that you can get at other locations. It's decorated with impeccable taste, immaculately clean rooms, every last detail covered, and... More

I stayed with Russell and Marnie between business trips. I needed a relaxing place with good service and a personal touch, and that's exactly what I found. These guys have a really top-class place with a very personal, bed & breakfast feel. The location is really convenient for access to the whole peninsula, but being up on the hillside makes... More

Whatever we write will not do this boutique hotel justice. Marnie and Russel and the rest of their staff are second to none. We spent last New Years at 52 De Wet and we had such a wonderful time we rebooked again. We have both stayed at some of most extravagant hotels around the world but rarely return twice to... More

I'm lucky to travel the world as a photographer, working in some of the most beautiful locations although I am a little biased when it comes to Cape Town, and the cherry on the top is 52 De Wet. The view alone is worth a stay. Marnie you were was the most fantastic host, nothing was a problem. The staff... More

I had the most wonderful week at this truly first class small hotel. The view is breathtaking and the decor and ambiance second to none. The staff, especially Zelna were very friendly and professional. They went out of their way to make my stay truly special. I stayed in Room 2 which was classified as being a standard room. It...

I don't know that I can add anything to the wonderful - and well-deserved - reviews of 52 De Wet. I will reiterate that the views and rooms are only to be outdone by the people, Marnie, Russ, and the whole staff. Our family (which is used to grand 5-star hotels) stayed in the apartment (rooms 6 and 7), and... More

We stayed for two nights at this truly unique boutique property in arguably the best neighborhood in the city. Our room was huge, very well equipmed and modern with sweeping city and ocean views. At night we opened the sliding doors to let the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks in as we slept. Everything from perfect during... More
