What a wonderful boutique hotel! We were Two couples staying from the UK and could not have wished for a better stay. Our host Declan and his fabulous team made the stay fabulous. The layout, private pools for the rooms and every amenity included was such a treat. A few minutes of safe walking to the Main Street with all the restaurants. I could not recommend this hotel highly enough - we will be back!! Thank you for making our stay so special.

No wonder Akademie Street is consistently ranked No. 1 in Franschhoek, Declan and his staff can't do enough to make your stay fabulous. The breakfasts are amazing quality and the complimentary drinks in the orangerie and mini bar are a lovely touch. There was always someone available to give advice on vineyards and restaurants and the individuality of the rooms give the whole place a unique style that you won't find anywhere else. The lovely pool, plants and vintage bicycles add a touch of style too. The location is perfect, just back from the main street making it perfectly quiet both day and night. Get ready Declan, we are already looking at flights to return soon.

Akademie Street Hotel is truly a gem situated right in the heart of Franschhoek. We recently stayed for three nights and it exceeded all of our expectations. Due to flight times we showed up on their doorstep at 0700 and were greeted with open arms despite arriving 8 hours before our check in. The entire stay Declan and his team did everything possible to make us comfortable and ensure we had a great time. From 5-star breakfasts every morning to complimentary drinks after dinner Akademie Street Hotel does everything they can to make your trip a great one. In addition to their great service the hotel itself is amazing and is located two blocks from the Main Street in downtown Franschhoek. Walking to restaurants and getting around town is a breeze from the hotel. If you’re looking for a phenomenal intimate hotel for your stay in town, look no further!

It has been a very hot few days in the winelands so it was a treat to cool off here. It's always a joy to step off the street and enter the Akademie Sheet village, which has truly become a home away from home for me. A highlight of my stay was meeting some other guests who had travelled from the US, fellow lovers of architect, food, travel and art. Akademie Street Boutique Hotel always attracts wonderful, worldly, and well-travelled guests with a deep appreciation for this kind of unpretentious luxury hospitality. Thanks again to the team for making my stay so fantastic!
