Spent a weekend there as a special surprise for my wife. Amazing experience! It is obvious that lots of thought went into the planning of each room, down to each little fixture. The facilities are top class without being ostentatious. You do feel this hotel...More

I believe that Arthur and his family have recently sold the Guest House. We are thinking of booking for next year but are concerned that the standards which have made this a No 1 Tripadvisor hoice, may slip? Views?

Hi Jackie. My name is Declan and I am part of the new ownership team; there is only two of us. I am here on a day to day basis as we felt it important that we have an active presence over here. So I am over here full time for better or for worse. The obvious answer to your question, from someone in my position answering it, would be of course we are maybe even better. But of course that would be arrogant and I am not the right person to answer your question. We certainly hope we are and we certainly strive to be. We want to be even better, if that is possible. I suggest that you check out our recent reviews and listen to the best and most important views - our guests. Our aim, always was and remains not change anything, from the name, the management team,the staff,the ethos and the entire Offer. Thankfully we have managed this and the exact team is still in place, doing the same great job. We have forged a great friendship with Arthur and Katherine and they still very much advise us on how to maintain and even improve on this great Offer they have left us with. Even Anna the dog is still a regular visitor to Akademie Street, need I say any more! Why would we choose to change a winning formula! We only try to implement subtle changes to improve the guests overall experience. We believe we have.
So in short, please check out our recent reviews on Tripadvisor and notice that from the very recent Tripadvisor awards we have managed to maintain Akademie Street's rightful position; actually improving in some of the categories.
And of course we would be delighted to welcome you once again to Akademie Street and let you judge us for yourself.
