Stayed 5 nights and sadly would not recommend or rebook. We were given their standard room which has a small window with a distant view of the sea but a splendid view of the adjacent construction site. Major ongoing building work at the front and to the side of the hotel. Our room was next to the work, so awoken... More

Stayed here for 4 nights after doing the garden route so arrived tired. We were soon revived by the beautiful venue and special people. From the moment Marnie greeted us at the door on our arrival to the moment we left, pampered and spoilt was the order of our stay. Celebrating a birthday here is very special. Nothing was too...

What a fantastic hotel! Everything about 52 de Wet is top drawer: views, food, staff, rooms, atmosphere and most importantly the warmth of the hosts and their staff. We spent 3 nights here on my wife's birthday tour of South Africa and I certainly earns a few brownie points by booking this venue. What more can I say, book it... 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

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
