My husband and I recently visited Cape Town to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff at 52 De Wet were very hospitable from the onset. They were able to accommodate my craving for midnight brownies and even arranged an emergency pregnancy massage for me. The rooms are spacious and modern, the breakfast is creative and tasty. The infinity pool and...

Feel like in your own luxury home. The very calm accommodation invites to stay some days. Very friendly staff, very good food, very clean, small with only eight rooms. 24 hour reception and SPA - nothing missing. We loved to stay at the pool with a great view to Cape Town.

True luxury with stunning views. The penthouse suite where we stayed was elegantly decorated with design furniture and all comforts. The bathroom is to dream of! Even the balcony overlooking the ocean was stylishly furnished. Breakfasts were feasts, delicious, and no request was too much for the enthusisastic and able staff. Even snacks for room service were outstanding. We asked...

This was a romantic holiday for me and my fiance. From the initial booking the service was awesome. The rooms are spacious and well decorated. The food is fantastic and the view is the like no other. They arranged a special turndown pulling out all the stops.

We visited as a couple on a business trip. Being in the hospitality industry ourselves we tend to be more critically but could not fault anything. The breakfast was wonderful and refreshing and the homely atmosphere fitted like a glove. only regret is that it was too short

This was a flying one night visit on our way to Hermanus. The weather was hot and sunny so the natural thing to do was flop on De Wet's stunning sun deck for the whole day.
