No words for the beauty of this hotel. Just wow. Our room was phenomenal and there were so many beautiful little touches. We were here on our honeymoon and it was such a romantic place to be. From the food to the room to the area, this place is a must book. Truly gorgeous.

Thank-you Akademie for a brilliant weekend. We stayed in the Vreugde cottage. It was cosy & private and with such attention to detail throughout. Fantastic location right in the heart of Franschhoek, a stones throw from the main road and lovely wine estates. And many thanks to Declan for his hospitality, we couldn’t have felt more welcome! Looking forward to returning.

We recently spent five glorious nights in Franschhoek at the Akademie Street Guest House and could not have had a better experience. The guest house is perfectly located to enable you to take full advantage of Franschhoek's myriad fine dining options and charming town center. Our room was spacious, tastefully appointed, very private and came equipped with a wood-fired outdoor hot tub! Declan, the guest house's amiable proprietor, not only took a personal interest in making sure every element of our stay was perfect, but his friendly persona and cheerful conversation were a special part of the stay. From an excellent complimentary breakfast each morning to an open bar happy hour in front of the fire each evening after dinner, Declan and his staff made sure that every aspect of

From the moment we rang the bell and Declan opened the door - to the time we drove away with him waving goodbye - each moment was treasured. Every possible need is anticipated, and the hospitality of Declan and his staff was phenomenal. We stayed for 2 nights - and wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel is just a block from the main area which has all the restaurants. The room, Uitsig, is gorgeous. Complimentary mini bar stocked with all kinds of drinks. Complimentary snacks. Heated tiled floors for the bathroom. A mobile phone at your disposal while you are there. They have a happy hour social each day from 6pm to 8pm with wines and some nibbles. Complimentary laundry which was very welcome; Just a truly truly amazing experience - and Declan sets the bar very high for

It's not often that you visit a place that has paid so much attention to detail and is run as a labour of love. Such places are rare and you leave exponentially happier than when you arrived. Thank you for creating such a unique special space.
