The location, room and food were excellent. Accommodations made the stay in Cape town more enjoyable. The staff were very friendly and personable. The managers were knowledgeable of the area and very helpful.

An excellent location with excellent staff and excellent food. We were welcomed by Chris who was very familiar with hospitality and recommended some fancy seafood restaurant as well. Moreover, we felt really safe that there was a security guard 24/7.

Beautiful location, beautiful room and amenities. It was perfect for a couples' getaway and the staff was a joy to interact with. It was also a nice 10-min walk to restaurants by the water. Definitely recommend!!

The spacious two bedroom apartment with superb views was perfect in every way. The location and standard of accommodation was brilliant. The breakfast was fantastic. The chef produced great variety of hot food, including the best crispy bacon. The service was very pleasant. We felt that the concierge could have given us better restaurant and activity recommendations at times even...

Thanks Regina for this great review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I thank you for mentioning our bacon, it's local product we are trialing and it seems to be going down well. I'm sorry that you may not have enjoyed some of the restaurants we recommend, Cape Town's top spots fill up far in advance so to avoid...

Small boutique hotel. We stored our luggage there as we got in early and went out for the day. When we arrived at 4pm, our luggage was in our room. Checking in meant completing a form and signing it. Chris showed us around and explained the nuances. The room was great with a great ocean view and a wonderful balcony....

Thanks very much for the review and lovely comments. We are very much looking forward to Bantry Bay being fibre optic ready, as soon as the infrastructure is in place we will be able to increase our connection speeds. We are looking forward to you guys returning.

First thing when you check in - the view over the sea as you enter the hotel is to die for. Simply amazing. I haven't been to Malibu, but this place feels like it would not be out of place there! Diana, Marnie and the others were all really helpful. The hotel is very tastefully decorated and lovely. Very comfortable....

I stayed at 52 de Wet alone and the staff went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. The location is ideal for visiting tourist attractions. It's boutique quality, means that everything is catered to your specific needs and the sunset views are magical !

We stayed in 52 De Wet for three nights with my husband and couldn’t recommend it more. The staff was very friendly, breakfast was tasty, lovely location and amazing views from the infinity pool on the ocean. Room was nice, clean and the bed gave us a good night sleep. Would definitely stay again in this lovely boutique hotel. Perfect...
