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...

Former home provides a luxurious and very quiet location for visiting Cape Town. Large rooms. Attentive staff. Easy to Uber back and forth, over 3 days never waited more than 5 minutes. Incredible views from rooms!

Couldn't have asked for anything better. Russell, Chris and team looked after us in Marnies absence. Very relaxed place to stay but top quality. Wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend Ate in one night which was one of best nights of our holiday.

Excellent friendly hotel in a really good location and with fantastic views. Staff really helpful and friendly and super room which was comfortable for 4 of us due to the split bedrooms. Lots of communal space too.

Thank you so much, i will pass on the compliments to the team. I'm very glad you also mentioned the lack of wind, Bantry Bay is the only place in Cape Town you will find 'wind free' throughout the summer season.
