Where to start where to finish… well clearly Akademie Street in Franschhoek.
What a fantastic hotel… breakfasts to die for…. 9 rooms all individual in style and size, ours was huge and had a wood fired hottub on the balcony, the weather is hot I hear you say… well sit in the hottub and watch the sky and mountains right in front of you and you will agree.
The staff hosted by Declan care after the needs of their guests like they are family.
This hotel sits right at the top of our list of hotels and we shall return soon

A truly lovely spot with a fantastic staff making the place friendly and very helpful at every turn. The rooms are really well thought out and individual with a great setting in the common areas. Just a treat to get away from standard corporate boxes. The hotel is ideal place to enjoy the town and surrounding area but equally great just to stay in the hotel and relax. Highly recommended.

Room tip: There is so much to do in the town and surrounding areas but make sure you take time to enjoy the delights of the hotel.

We had a 2 night stay and could have easily made it longer. The hotel is brilliantly decorated and comfortable. The staff are beyond wonderful from Declan, Charlene & Minette to the extraordinary guys who carried our bags, brought us ice and most importantly lit our wood fired hot tub! The breakfast outdoors poolside was fabulous, delicious and beautiful. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend! The attention to detail is extraordinary.

Akademie Street is the best place I have ever stayed. The hospitality is world class - Declan and his amazing team went above and beyond to make us feel at home (well actually it is very much more beautiful than home!) The decor and ambience at the hotel is superb - every detail has been thought about - from the scent to the sun hats by the pool to the mini bar selection in the room. Drinks before dinner in the Orangerie listening to Nicky play the piano is such a generous gift to guests. Breakfast is so good - fresh fruit, smoothies, home made granola, local honey and a host of hot choices.
And all within a 5 minute walk of the centre of Franschhoek. You would be mad not to visit at least once in your life.

Akademie is a MUST DO when visiting Franschhoek. Every detail is covered; from all the social spaces, room design to the incredible service. The rooms are decked out with all you would want for a romantic getaway. My husband and I particularly love the fire warmed jacuzzi, gold plated bath, bluetooth phonograph and the fully stoked mini bar. Now to the service... from the moment you walk in the owners and staff go above and beyond to make you feel welcome; whatever you need they are there to support. We loved the glass house social space where the breakfast was a stand out not to mention the evening cocktails/bubbles/wine over a game of backgammon before heading out to your evening. If you are looking for a romantic getaway where you can find the space to really wind down, connect and focus on each other this is the place!
