My husband and I booked Akademie Street Boutique Hotel for our honeymoon. From the moment we were welcomed warmly and greeted by name at the front door we felt at home. Akademie Street Boutique Hotel was perfect in every way - luxurious rooms, delicious breakfasts, wines and nightcaps. Oh and the wood-fired hot tubs are amazing! The staff are wonderful and discreet, always willing to help. I will recommend them over & over again!

We had the most incredible stay. A heartwarming and luxurious experience in the most beautiful setting. Declan and his staff were so attentive, a delight to talk to, yet offered us absolute privacy to enjoy our stay. It will forever be etched in our hearts, particularly our room, uitsig, which is the epitome of romance. I cannot wait to be back.

Both the hotel itself and the staff were absolutely lovely. Even with lockdown in South Africa, we felt like we were on a perfect vacation and were very spoiled by Declan and his team. Highly recommend this gem of a stay in Franschhoek, where the interior design is impeccable (so cozy and classic with really nice modern amenities and touches) and the staff are wonderful!!!

We loved Akademie’s intimate attention to detail. Beautifully decorated rooms with all the creature comforts and truly unique touches. The staff were intuitive to all our needs and super friendly. The wood fired hot tub in our room was the highlight! Don’t miss the world-class breakfast in the Atrium.
