The level of service and attention to detail at Akademie Street was incredible. We were traveling with another couple, and both of our rooms were unique, well designed, and entirely comfortable. In a town of great food the breakfasts stood out. The best part of the Akademie, though, was the staff. Declan, Meena, and all the staff were fantastic about...

From the moment that Declan (one of the Owners) threw open the front door to greet and welcome us, we quickly realised we had arrived somewhere special. It feels like somebody has thought about all your expectations of a “boutique” style hotel and then set out to exceed them! We stayed in the main house and whilst these rooms are...

One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. With a view of the mountains lying beside your practically private swimming pool, it offers a unique, luxurious experience. The room has complimentary mini bar services with free wifi and ensuite bathrooms. The room provides you with a classic feel whilst maintaining the standard and luxury that you would expect....

Staying here was a great experience and a real treat for us as we had our own self-contained cottage with kitchen, pool, walled garden and wood fired hot tub/plunge pool. The facilities were so good and the complementary refreshments were so plentiful that we had to tear ourselves away to go into town or do a wine tour. The hotel...

Everything was great! Because it is not a big hotel, we got the feeling we were very special. The room was excellent and we had a private pool and a hot tub. Breakfast is outstanding! The laundry is back on the same day. Friends of ours recommended the Akademie and we want to recommend the Akademie to you all.
