We loved 52 DeWett. It was perfect. Very nice contemporary rooms. Large Tubs in some rooms and separate tile showers. Very clean. Incredible view. Great breakfast with really good coffee. Sunset wine and a short walk to view the sunset overlooking Clifton Beach. Russell and Marnie were so nice. We arrived late in the evening, they made is a nice... More

What a fantastic surprise tucked away high on the hill above beautiful Bantry Bay. Just 8 rooms, ensuring a highly personalised service and an intimate atmosphere. We were fortunate to have been assigned Room # 4, which had a spectacularly large veranda area, and an even more spectacular view of the ocean. Service was excellent, and the staff all deserve...

I lived everything about my stay at 52 De Wet. The staff was exceptionally sweet and helpful with restaurant reservations and recommendations. The breakfast was delicious and provided excellent variety of continental and hot options. They would always offer us complimentary sundowner drinks in the afternoon as were enjoying the sunset in the pool. I would gladly go again.

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.

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.
