We spent 19 nights at 52 De Wet in July/Aug 2013.
We were pampered by Anatoly, Russ, Marnie, Vaz and Team. Thanks guys.
We stayed in room # 4 which had a private balcony with spectacular ocean and city views.
Rate includes a sumptuous breakfast (fruits, cereals, juices, coffee, croissants, salmon, and your choice of eggs benedict, omelet, poached eggs, fried eggs, etc.).
Complimentary laundry was a very nice surprise and since we stayed for a long time, it was a huge win.
Complimentary bottled water was also a very nice touch. We usually grabbed two bottles every morning and took them on our daily walks. BTW great walks around Lions Head are easily accessible one road up on Arcadia Drive (you can walk or drive and park your car at trail entrance). Amazing views all around.
Free WiFi worked great in our room and in the common areas.
The location is very close to all the beaches and downtown Cape Town. I recommend that you rent a car as it'll be far cheaper and more convenient than using taxis. We rented a manual/stick-shift (~ half price of automatic) from Thirfty/Dollar on Chiappini St. Make sure you get online car rental prices.
For transport from/to airport, they arranged a Unicab/Unitaxi which was very reasonable at R320/~USD32.
All in all a fantastic stay and I highly recommend 52 De Wet!More
