We stayed in the Uitsig Suite on the upper floor for 4 nights. It is a spacious room with lots of privacy. Very individually furnished with great attention to detail. The always-filled minibar, refilled coffe capsules and snacks are just as much part of the hotel's standard as the extremely comfotable bed (which can be heated).
The entire 'hotel complex' is perfectly located in a quiet residential area in Franschhoek. It is exceptionally well maintained, beautifully decorated and invites you to linger. The hosts are enthusiastic and helpful and the team is very attentive, friendly and likeable.
We especially enjoyed the excellent breakfast, prepared by hand with much love and fresh products, and the drinks before dinner in the beautiful, vintage style Orangerie.
We can highly recommend Akademie Street Boutique Hotel and will definitely return.

4 things I loved about my stay at Akademie Street Boutique Hotel:

1.) THE ACCOMMODATIONS - it is clear that decorating the rooms was a labor of love. Its just so nice to spend time in your room here. They also have a private pool and a wood burning hot tub. The refrigerator is stocked with free alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. The shower is big and has great water pressure. The bed is very comfortable. They have bikes you can borrow. And the common areas of the hotel are immaculate.

2.) THE LOCATION - its situated in a safe quiet neighborhood and is a short easy walk away from all of the restaurants and shops. We walked each day to the wine tram. If you’re driving, there is easy designated parking at the facility.

3.) THE FOOD AND DRINKS - the breakfasts are epic! Great coffee, omelettes, eggs, breads, yoghurts, and fruits. Every night they put out wine, whiskey, and other beverages for the firsts to enjoy by the fire both before dinner time and after dinner time.

4.) THE PEOPLE - the hotel is run by the most friendly, happy, caring people who clearly love what they do. The service is impeccable without being overbearing at all. You get personalized, warm, genuine service from the moment you arrive.

This place is bulletproof. Book this hotel with total confidence. 5 Stars.

It will leave you mesmerized and enchanted the minute you enter the front door.
We loved every minute of our 2 night stay and all kudo's to Declan and his incredible team for the effortless manner in which they always made us feel at home.

Thank you for the most memorable weekend get-away we could have wished for. We can't wait to visit you all again soon.

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!
