We had been planning a trip to Franschhoek and a stay at Akademie street for a while and finally got round to doing it. We spent two incredible nights at Akademie Street and explored the valley and restaurants during the day, guidance to which we got from the hotel. Everything about the hotel is perfect, from the service during making the booking and being greeted at the door on arrival to the beautifully furnished rooms and common areas. We have spoken about our weekend at the hotel everyday since we left and rate it was one of our best weekends ever, we will definitely be back, regularly!

We had the pleasure of staying at this charming boutique hotel recently during a tour of the wine country. From the moment we walked in the door, Declan and his team gave us great personalized service... And the accommodations were fantastic - the attention to detail in each of the unique rooms really makes this place a stand out. You don't feel like you are staying at a hotel at all... First class experrience all the way. We are already planning our next stay there!! Highly recommend!

I loved every moment of my stay at Akademie. I have wanted to go for a while and when I finally did, they exceeded my expectations. My suite was so comfortable that I feel asleep the moment I arrived, it's also appointed with loads of little touches that are so useful to travelers and I couldn't think of anything else I would need. The staff are so friendly and extremely helpful with special mention to Declan, Fanie and Morne. Looking forward to staying again.

My fiance and I decided on a trip to South Africa and went through a travel agency which set us up here for two nights. Upon arriving, we were absolutely blown away by the accommodations, the friendly staff, and the absolutely amazing decor in each and every corner of Akademie Boutique Hotel. We were in awe over the attention to detail of the staff and the rooms. Everything you need to navigate the area is provided, including a cell phone, guidebook, and some excellent recommendations by the staff! We left for a horseback riding tour, and came back to some wine and dinner reservations already made for us. The staff provided everything we needed during our stay, but I cannot say enough about the hotel itself. The antique decor and ornamental plants instantly brought our spirits

We had an amazing stay at Akademie. Every detail is considered and it is clear that a lot of thought and planning went into the design of the hotel and the services that guests would require. Each room is unique and beautifully decorated. The seasonal fruit at breakfast and cognac by the fire in the Orangery after dinner were highlights. Declan and the rest of the team were very welcoming and friendly. Highly recommended, we will definitely be back.
