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

I stayed in 3 places in Cape Town and this was by far the best. A very unique balance of relaxed yet professional staff. stunning situation just outside the city centre with unbelievable views.

From the welcome to the farewell, we had a truly wonderful 5 day stay at 52 De Wet. The views from the main terrace with a infinity pool are as good as it gets in Cape Town. Our room was extremely large and well furnished with a very well appointed bathroom and our own terrace with equally stunning views of... More

The service was great even before our arrival, Marnie and Judy responded every single question about our trip promptly (even on Sundays!). When we got there we were amazed by the view from the living/dinning room and the staff served us a glass of bubbly immediately :). We loved our room even with the partial view cause it was spacious... More

Spent 3 nights at 52 De Wet and it was exceptional throughout. Marnie created an amazing itinerary for me and took care of my entire trip really. If travelling here, make sure you leave enough time in your itinerary to actually enjoy the luxuriousness of the hotel, and also to partake in Russell's cooking! Beautiful sunset views. Stunning rooms. Great... More
