High up, on the slopes of Lion’s Head Mountain, you’ll feel the sun, but not the wind. Ocean, stretching further than the eye can see. The South Atlantic, home to passing pods of dolphins and whales.

Inside, luxurious en-suite rooms; each one designed and furnished to make your stay with us relaxing and your time here feeling far too short. Come for a holiday, for business, an intimate wedding or family celebration. Our warmest welcome is waiting.

We spent 3 nights at 52 De Wet in May. We had a beautiful suite overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the City of Cape Town. The view was incredible. Breakfast offers choice of 4 hot entrees. And there's local gin or wines in the evening. Staff is superb with help with luggage, directions, suggestions for dinner, etc.

My second stay at 52 and I had the pleasure of staying in the penthouse suite. An outstanding luxurious room with amazing views right from the bed. The whole suite had a spacious and stylish vibe. The staff were friendly and went out of their way to make me feel welcome and a special returning guest, even baking a gorgeous cake for my birthday. The food is perfect, beware the breakfast will tempt you into multiple plates and croissants, they were just too good. I can’t wait to visit again.

We stayed for 3 nights at the start and end of our trip to Cape Town and were lucky enough to have two phenomenal, large rooms, both with beautiful balcony’s overlooking the ocean and SeaPoint. We were lucky to have brilliant weather so got to enjoy our sundowners by the pool each night to some beautiful sunsets. The selection of gins is not too be missed! We ate at the hotel one evening and can’t recommend it enough, a delicious, intimate 3 course meal over looking the ocean with perfect wine. Breakfast in the mornings was well stocked and hot food was really tasty. Staff were caring and always on handy to answer questions or help us grab a drink. We loved our stay and will definitely be back!

Arriving at the property Marnie kindly welcomed us and informed us we had been upgraded to the penthouse suite. What a lovely surprise considering we had got engaged the previous night. The penthouse is stunning! Very Bond like with a huge bathroom including a bath overlooking the bay. The room itself has the comfiest bed. There is also a his and hers walk in closet including a record player which we made great use of. The location is great and an Uber to the waterfront is so cheap for going out for drinks in the evening. If you prefer to stay in there is a honesty bar with snacks. I would like to give a special thank you to Marnie and her team. There are too many to mention and each person more helpful and kind than the next! I would not hesitate to recommend staying here!

I must say, this place blew all expectations away. I think it's because the photos don't do it justice. I liked the look of the place when I booked, but it surpassed all expectations when I saw it in my own two booties. Incredible. I guess that's half the magic. Marnie and her team were so welcoming, the view was outstanding, the food impeccable and the room had a bed that I might just add is the comfiest bed I think I've ever slept in, in all my 30 young years. The little things topped it all off. Small things that you'll only enjoy when you commit and spend an incredivle night at 52 De Wet. Can't wait for a return. Thank you!!
