This was our return trip to Akademie; the ownership has changed, but it still retains a wonderful atmosphere and level of service. Stayed in one of the cottages with its own private garden and pool. Excellent service and some wonderful, thoughtful touches, included free laundry, wifi. Attention to detail is great, and lots of special touches, such as a real...

Declan and his staff could not have been nicer. Enjoyable evening wine by the outdoor fireplace. Fabulous breakfast. (Several varieties of fresh fruit, beautifully arranged, homemade granola, yogurt, honey, eggs, etc.) Our room was gorgeous & spacious with all the amenities one could want. What a very special experience; we wish we could have stayed for more than just 2...

We truly enjoyed staying at the Akademie Street Boutique hotel. Friendliness, service, hospitality, facilities and amenities were all top notch. We stayed in the Oortuiging Suite, which was very roomy and luxurious. The private, wood fired hot tub was a fun addition. We also enjoyed a swim in the heated pool and a cognac by the outdoor fireplace in the...

It doesn't seem right to call Akademie Street a Hotel - it is a different experience. From the moment you arrive, the care and attention from Declan, Stacy, Meena, and the other staff is more like that afforded to long lost family members. However, privacy is also paramount and they certainly find the right balance. The accommodation is outstanding and...

Before we even arrived at the hotel, the owner, Declan, had taken the time to advise us and reserve top class restaurants for us. From the moment we arrived it was clear nothing was too much trouble for the incredibly helpful staff, everything available was explained clearly and we were blown away by the atmosphere and, although the hotel was...
