We had a wonderful time here.The check in was seamless and we were taken down to our beautiful room.Ample space in room with small fridge and coffee capsule facility.Breakfast was fit for a king and we did not wanted to leave.
The property is beautiful and we were greeted by a lovely host. Sadly, it all went down hill from there. The head staff member is incredibly rude and unwelcoming. House next door plays loud and obnoxious music form 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., it's so loud it was even heard during our massage sessions. Parking is an issue as well. To top it all off, safe didn't work in our room, there were no bins and the pillows were uncomfortable.
We had a absolutely blissful stay with couples massage and 3 course dinner cooked by in-house chef Rus. The private suite has amazing views and amenities which we enjoyed to the fullest! Highly recommended!
I cannot say a single negative thing about our recent stay in this hotel.
We booked a studio suite with sea views but on arrival we recieved a complimentary upgrade to their penthouse suite and what an amazing room it was. A huge room, fantastic bathroom and the balcony and views were so good. The sunset from the balcony was breathtaking and we were able to watch a whale simming in the bay (from afar).
All of the staff were incredibly friendly and the whole place has such a relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast was really nice and to eat it whilst looking out towards the ocean was great. They brought the breaksfast.
With regards to location, I felt it was perfect for us. Very quiet but during the day it felt extremely safe walking down to Camps Bay (took us 50mins) with great views most of the way and at night only a 10-15min Uber from Camps Bay which was our preferred place to eat and only cost £2-3 each trip. It is a bit further to the City Centre restaurants but that wasn't an issue for us at all as Ubers are so cheap.
All in all, we enjoyed this hotel immensely and fully intend on returning if(when) we return to SA. Thanks for an amazing stay.
Just stayed at 52 de wet for a week and had the best time ever. The room we stayed in was spacious and had everything we needed.even my wife getting the booking wrong could not spoil the trip as Russell kindly accommodated us in the penthouse suite for an extra night. The room and balcony were stunning. All the staff a very attentive and so polite. A special mention for Georgia who is lovely and makes love gin cocktails in the evening. Russell cooked for us on our first night and the meal was gorgeous. The lemon tart is to die for!! I loved every minute of our stay and will definitely be going back. Russell and Marnie are such a lovely couple and do such a great job with the hotel. I just wish I could have bought one of the bronze sculptures on display which were amazing.
