I stayed at 52 De Wet for 5 nights when visiting Cape Town and greatly enjoyed my visit. The property is beautiful and you can't beat the views here. The location was convenient for us, as even though it's not very walkable, Ubers were easily available and very cheap around the area. There were plenty of restaurants within a 5-10 minute drive. The staff/owners were very nice and accommodating and gave us great recommendations for dinners and other activities in Cape Town.

Loved it!
This is easily Cape Town's best kept secret! Classy and homely at the same time. The staff were very nice, friendly and welcoming, going above and beyond to make you happy. I had an urgent dry-cleaning request and they made sure I had my jacket back by the time I needed it. The views are breathtaking as well especially when the sun is out. The area is peaceful and perfect for a hike and long walks. There isn't a 24-hour on-site restaurant but they can have meals cooked for you on request or you can easily order from Uber eats if you aren't able to go out. Breakfast is also made every morning by the kitchen staff, who also bake the best cookies. I only stayed for one night and my only regret is that I wish I had stayed longer.

52 de Wet was beyond amazing. I have no words for exactly how amazing this place is; I felt at home despite being over 9,000 miles away from home. The staff was beyond friendly and helpful. Russell gave multiple recommendations, all of which I would have been hard pressed to get from other hotels/B&B's. The other staff were welcoming and always available for anything needed whether it is a glass of some wonderful wine (with serving suggestions) or just a chat. The food is also fabulous. One of the most amazing features was the view from the balcony/pool/breakfast table. I was actually able to watch whales in ocean at amazing! I will never get over how breathtaking the view from the balcony is at 52 de Wet.

Beautiful hotel in a quiet area
Had an amazing 2 night stay here. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is beautiful and in a quiet area of Bantry Bay. Only a short drive from Cape Town. Would highly recommend this hotel and we will definitely stay here again.
