“Returning to our new family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This most charming Guest house is our favourite place in the Franschhoek valley.
Wonderful staff who work so hard to make your stay so very special.

Lots of changes from our last visit to the building and all very positive.

Well, our stay at Akademie Street could not have any been better. What a charming place this is! After the change of ownership the house and Garden have been renovated and brought to a even higher standard. Everything in and around the house is kept in pristine condition. All staff is always very friendly and helpful, whatever your wish might be. Rooms are very spacious and well Eqipped. The breakfast is fantastic with a good choice of warm egg dishes prepared to your liking. Fresh smotthies and a large fruit platter is included as well.
Very early reservation is a must as there are only seven rooms and the hotel is always very well booked. We have stayed here the fourth time and are always very pleased to come back.

WE WILL BACK FOR SURE!

This is an oasis, not to be missed.Everything is taken care of for you.
Declan and all his team do all they can to make your stay memorable, however short or long.We shall return.The cottage Verugde was an absolute delight, spacious, well equipped, ideal for two who want privacy and quiet.

Room Tip: Book very early to secure the suite or cottage of your choice.

If you are thinking of visiting Franschoek this is the only place to stay. What a stunning place. We stayed in the cottage which includes your own pool and garden. The rooms were large and have all the facilities you could possibly need including a full kitchen should you decide to eat in. The place was spotless. The breakfasts superb, eaten outside under the grape vine. Declan and the team can't do enough for you; they are all so welcoming. All this and only 2 minutes away from the host of excellent restaurants.
Wish we'd stayed longer.

What a wonderful experience. On arrival Declan, Stacey and the team were welcoming and friendly, willing to assist to all our needs. We stayed in Vreudge - A beautifully decorated, spacious, modern room with a stunning brass bath and private swimming pool. I will definately be returning soon!
I will definitely return to Akademie Street.

Stayed December 2016
