We flew from The UK arriving at 10am on Sunday morning, a very quick transfer from the airport (due to the lack of traffic) resulted in us arriving before Noon - no problem for the staff , they showed us into the lounge area where the view simply takes your breath away tea and coffee arrived within minutes whilst we...

Amazing place. Breathtaking is a word that comes to mind. From the time we arrived, which was late in the evening nothing was too much trouble. The staff were great, the views, the rooms the ambience was amazing. I will definitely need to bring my family back here soon.

Marnie, Russell, and the entire staff are simply top of class. Every need and request was attended to. Russel's culinary flair is evident with the meals, and Marnie's warmth and thoughtfulness is equally evident with a surprise drawn bath and candles upon our return from dinner. A true Cape Town Gem. I just wish we lived closer in order to... More

We stayed at 52 De Wet for four nights in April 2016. Right from when we arrived (and were greeted with sparkling wine and cake) to when we departed (a little after check out time, but that wasn't a problem) the service was fantastic. The views from the dinning area over looking the pool have to be seen to be... More

I needed quiet, a hideaway to be at still and get some rest. From internet searches, 52 De Wet seemed ideal. And thus it proved to be. Stunning location, calm ambience, kind and accommodating staff. The place is an Elysian dream. Thanks to you, Marnie & Russell, and your delightful team. Would love to visit again if possible.
