Stayed at 52 De Wet for 4 nights at the end of September 2014, and despite the grey weather, the hotel was perfect (although I would not have minded lounging by the infinity pool!). The hotel is the essence of a private hotel - so discreet most people would drive past without knowing it is a hotel (which we loved... More

From the moment we arrived after a very long bus journey to our last day in Cape Town, we were made very welcome by Russell and Marnie. A beautiful penthouse with amazing bath and views of the sunset! Gorgeous furnishings and pool. Marnie organised restaurant bookings, taxis and a picnic for our last sunset over Bantry Bay! A real treat... More

Very very nice hotel, spacious and luxurious room with terrace and stunning view on the ocean. It was our first hotel during our trip in the Western Cape and it was a perfect start. Hotel has a limited amount of rooms what guarantees a very personal and attentive service. Staff is very friendly an helpful. Eye for detail, design, breakfast,... More

On arriving, when the door to the hotel is opened, it´s not only the warm greetings that brings you "home" after a long flight, it´s the view that immediately takes you on a journey of inspiration.
