I always say that the best compliment a hotel can receive is when a guest says, he felt like at home.
Well, at 52 De Wet I felt like at home, and a bit more.
The location is stunning, obviously not in central CapeTown but close enough. The place, the views, the road that leads us to the hotel, its just perfect.
From the moment you arrive you feel like at home, they all try to make things easy for you.
My room was the cheapest one, thank God, it was an amazing room with a very interesting bathroom, which was part of the room but separated by sliding doors.
Wifi worked ok throughout all the hotel
Breakfast was nice, very well presented and not hotel food, but food you would prepare home for friends. Same thing happens for lunch or dinner (sándwiches, salads, etc) everything is prepared with much care.
Amenities and small touches in the room were fantastic, they also help to make a difference.
And finally both Ross, Marnye and the Team were great people, great hosts and made my short stay a great one.
The hotel is very small, you dont have many guests and quite a few were there for a few days. This means that when you go down for breakfast you talk to everyone and there is a lot of interaction, with guests, management, etc,
And ofcourse anything you may need, its always available (reservations for retaurants, tips, information, check in online, stamps for postcards, etc) you name it.
I can only say 3 things.
Will return A.S.A.P
