52 De Wet Boutique Hotel
Beautiful boutique hotel”
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.
Welcoming hosts, great view and excellent food and staff!”
Returning for Dinner to night.
Heaven on earth”
Hospitality is fully in the blood of staff and management. Everything is focussed on guests having a wonderfull time. Absolute top!!
Thank you so much, you are too kind. We love our jobs and enjoy ensuring that all of our guests have a stay to remember. We hope we will welcome you again soon, Kind Regards, Marnie, Russell and the Team
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
Great location with amazing views Prefect service
Thank you Emily, it was a real pleasure. We hope to welcome you again soon, Kind Regards, Marnie, Russell and The Team
Disappointing due to noise and manager promises”
We stayed at 52deWet right after our amazing wedding and just wanted to relax for a few days and enjoy CT. Unfortunately the staff booked us in a room down a lot of stairs and not actually inside the house. We clearly mentioned it was our honeymoon. In addition they didn't mention that there is a huge construction going on right next door, which creates noise from early in the morning and throughout the day. This made our stay there terrible as we couldn't even enjoy the pool or the room because of the noise. When talking to Russ the manager and owner, he acknowledged that they should have told us before arrival about the noise and that he will do a gesture and refund us part of the cost to apologize. Unfortunately upon departure, he changed his mind and didn't refund anything! Which was even a worse ending... definitely a place to avoid for the next 6-months at least if you don't want to stay right next door a construction site.
Blackmail...... please ignore this review. When you book through Agoda, clearly, you can choose the room type, the staff do not book the room for you. This is false ...!! Thank you for choosing 52. However, if you do not want to pay for your hotel, i suggest threatening a false review is not the correct way of doing so.
Excellent service and beautiful place
Thank you Tumi, we are truly blessed. I hope to welcome you again soon, Kind Regards, Marnie, Russell and The Team
Russ and his team at 52 De Wet have done an outstanding job creating a small boutique hotel that feels welcoming and comfortable. Some of my favorites: cook-to-order breakfast, expansive ocean views, comfortable rooms (I much preferred Room # 4).
Thank you very much James. It was a real pleasure to host you. We are grateful you took the time to mention your stay.
Wonderful setting and magnificent views”
The staff, food and facilities were amazing. A refreshing, small hotel that lends itself to a feeling of comfort and relaxation. We'll definitely be back.
Thank you for taking the time to review us at 52 De Wet, we hope to welcome you again soon. Kind Regards, Marnie, Russell and The Team
A must stay ”
Blown away by the feel of this place, the staff were attentive and the room was fantastic, really hard to fault and if you are looking for a place to call home when away from home look no further
What a wonderful review. This is excatly the concept we want to create and i'm very pleased this came across. Thank you for taking the time to write a few things.
This place is absolutely stunning! The view of the ocean is too die for! WOW”
Everything was spectacular! What a beautiful place. The view is fantastic. The host are so kind! The breakfast is out of this world. If we need to go to Cape Town again, we will stay there again.
Great stuff. Thank you so much. We are very lucky with our amazing view. We love a return guest here at 52.
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.
Thanks Avi. What a nice thing to say. I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and we'd love to have you back if you return to Cape Town.
A good haven”
we were on honeymoon and was looking for a place with good ocean view. We really love this place that is very quiet and exclusive. We wish there was more time spent there :)
Thank you for taking the time to review 52 De Wet. It was a pleasure to meet you and we hope to welcome you again in the future. Kind Regards, Marnie, Russell and The Team
The hotel, location, staff, and especially the view were spectacular.
Thank you Clare, we are very lucky to have such a view and the opportunity to share it. We hope to welcome you again soon, Kind Regards, Marnie, Russell and The Team
Penthouse in Cape Town”
Picture perfect views over the ocean with an infinity pool. Lovely boutique hotel vibe in that you are made to feel at home. Huge focus on all the little things - free minibar & laundry service. Owners Russell and Marnie are very knowledgable and helpful if you have questions on what to do in Cape Town. They have clearly worked incredibly hard to establish this great hideaway!
Thank you Edward, we are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure to meet you both and we hope that we will welcome you back in the near future. Kind Regards, Marnie, Russell and The Team
Luxurious home away from hom”
This hotel is not really a hotel but a luxurious holiday home. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The hotel facilities are relaxed and provide one with all of the home comforts one would not expect from a hotel. The staff is very helpful, friendly and pro-active.
Thank you Unathi for your review, we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you again soon. Kind Regards, Marnie, Russell and The Team
Amazing views and friendly staff ”
I'm in love with 52 De Wet Boutique hotel. The staff were super welcoming and friendly and Russel was always very helpful and generous with me. I will never forget walking through reception and find Russel making a delicious home made bread. You will feel at home from the minute you arrive! I could not forget the breathtaking views and the gorgeous bedrooms which makes you feel like staying at the hotel all the time! I would definitely go back and I highly recommend this place!
Thank you Amanda, we hope that we will welcome you once again very soon. Kind Regards, Marnie, Russell and the team
Amazing place, beautiful, breathtaking view, excellent food, wonderful people.”
We absolutely loved this beautiful studio for two couples. The decor is modern and the view from the room is like paradise. The beds are very comfy. All you can dream of to enjoy this city is there. The private pool was a real pleasure at the end of a warm day. I would go back there anytime. Louise
Thank you so much for your kind Review Louise. We hope that we will welcome you again in the near future. Kind Regards, Marnie, Russell and the Team
