    Best boutique hotel we've stayed at !”

    All the good things we read about 52 did not do it justice. The pool deck provides a spectacular view of Seapoint with the Cape mountain range in the background. The staff is wonderful, making sure we lacked nothing. The young couple running the hotel are charming and always ready to assist with recommendations. You can feel how every little detail was considered and taken care of to make our stay perfect - Gourmet breakfast in the morning to start our day and delicious fudge treats at our bedsides in the evening. We most certainly will be back.

    This small hotel of 8 rooms is set high up in Bantry overlooking the bay. Each room is individually decorated to a high standard. We stayed in room 8 which was huge with a balcony with sea view. Everything is immaculate. The team are very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are lovely and you sit in the lounge with the wonderful views. Would highly recommend.

    Great view but 4 star quality and falsely advertised ”

    The staff at 52 de Wet were extremely friendly, however there were a few things that made us wonder how it got to 5 stars: Dinner was only served three nights a week, not every night, and it didn’t include wine pairings as advertised “Complimentary wine and canapés” every evening didn’t happen on any evening, and we stayed there 5 nights No shower caps No cotton buds We were left a bottle of bubbles in our room as we were on honeymoon, which was a lovely gesture, however we didn’t drink it on the first evening so they took it away the next day(!) Alcohol was expensive - one glass of bubbles was R95 Pool was unheated, too cold to swim in WiFi was hit-and-miss It’s a reasonably small guesthouse and the kitchen is in the middle of the house... be prepared to be woken at 6am every morning!

    Dear Kate, I am extremely disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us and that you were woken at 6am each morning. We do have a display kitchen above our classic room but no cooking is done in this kitchen to reduce any noise disturbance to our guests, With the world becoming conscious of their usage of plastic, we are trying to do our bit, shower caps and cotton buds are available upon request, we choose not to put them in guests rooms. Food service, salads and sandwiches are available daily until 7pm (a little later upon request.) Yes dinner is served 3 times a week but we are extremely flexible and tend to do dinners any night when requested in advance. A glass of wine during sunset by our pool is inclusive of the rate, I am very surprised to hear that you did not receive this, the mini bar in your room (containing wine, beers & soft drinks) is included in the rate but not advertised. Please message me direct to discuss this further. Kind Regards, Marnie F

    Staff, terrific view, private pool and breakfast

    To be clear: this is a beautiful place with a terrific view, but the staff truly set this place apart. Willie is a professional: he was immediately accommodating on recommendations for restaurants. Anatoly anticipated every need we had from breakfast through our way out the door for the day. Rudolph had our car parked front and center each morning. Another staff member arranged for my girlfriend's pedicure...in Stellanbosch...one day after we left. Was sad to leave and look forward to coming back. Can't imagine staying anywhere else in Cape Town.
