We only spent one night there but what a memorable experience. A warm welcome by Declan to the most eclectic gorgeous home you can imagine starts off this adventure. It is hard to imagine anything more special than this Boutique hotel where every single wish and whim is catered for. At the ploo on the loungers there are even sun hats set out. The rooms are all different, we were in Twyfeling A and could walk out to the pool. The small touches that make a room one you will remember are all there, from the stoked bar fridge to the light in the bathroom and excellent bedside lighting. The gorgeous Conservatory where the breakfast is served also welcomes you to splendid wines before dinner as well as a night cap before a blazing fire in the huge grate, when you return from dinner.

This hotel has certainly earned its reputation. They have thought of everything... I'm fairly convinced you could show up without clothing and find a set in your room cupboard. It's a complete experience. We will be back! Also, they take corona cleansing seriously

Hi Karl H, thank you so much for your very kind & generous words. It was our great pleasure meeting El & yourself and we are delighted that you both enjoyed your brief stay with us. Hopefully, we'll see you both back on Akademie Street very soon but please bring your own clothing - just in case we can't deliver on that one!! Kind Regards, Declan & The Akademie Team.

My wife and I recently spent a wonderful weekend at the Akademie Street Boutique Hotel. We had decided to go to Franschoek to relax and enjoy the comfort advertised by the hotel. We were NOT disappointed. From the minute we arrived, we were pampered and treated to every comfort imaginable by Declan and his team. There is nothing that is too much to ask for. The whole property is beautifully designed, tastefully furnished and maintained in pristine condition. The lovely pool area with direct access from our room was a great pleasure. The rooms are very comfortable and equipped with Hi speed Wi-Fi, TV, mini bar, AC, fans and just about anything else that you might require to make you stay comfortable. The hotel is located a short walk from Huguenot Street, the main drag where you
