This is an absolutely exceptional hotel. It offered everything one would want. Great location. The hotel property and rooms, and the owner and staff made for an outstanding stay.

Really lovely place to stay. Great facilities and beautiful rooms (at least, very much to our taste) Very close to the centre of Franschhoek. Declan is a fantastic host, he could not do enough for us. We look forwards to staying again in the warmer months!

Very enjoyable, relaxing, luxurious with wonderful service. Would very happily return. A small point for improvement: the furniture was a bit mismatched with some modern office type elements in the bedroom with old-style decor.

Wow, this hotel is exceptional! From when we first arrived and rang the door bell, to the moment we left, we were treated like family! Declan and the teams, friendliness, attention to detail and service are unparalleled. Nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in Gelatenheid and were lucky enough to have it to ourselves. The private garden was an oasis of tranquility, with its own pool and hot tubs. The accommodation was exceptional, with no detail overlooked. Breakfast was delicious and homemade granola addictive! I could wax lyrical about this property forever, but what I will say it try it out for yourselves, I can promise you won’t be disappointed! I can almost guarantee you will never want to leave!!! Well done Declan and the team, you’ve done a sensational job!!

Better than excellent ”
This was our first visit to Franschhoek & what made the journey from the UK worthwhile was staying at the Akedemie Street Boutique Hotel. Declan & his team didn’t need a second chance to make a first impression it was obvious from the moment we arrived that the service facilities and everything else were second to none. Our only issue was self inflicted, we had only booked for two nights! Highly recommended John & Christine

Probably the best hotel we have EVER stayed in!”
We stayed at Akademie for two nights during our honeymoon in South Africa. Wow - where to start? This hotel is absolutely gorgeous, certainly one of the nicest we have ever stayed in. Rooms are actually vast suites which are beautifully decorated down to the finest detail! We were lucky enough to have both the hot tub and swimming pool to ourselves during our stay - though it was certainly more hot tub weather! Our favourite part of our stay was the 'drinks evenings' that were hosted every night with complimentary drinks and a pianist! These took place in the beautiful orangery - one of the most beautiful spaces we have ever seen. The breakfasts were exquisite and we were thoroughly full after them! Our host Declan was welcoming and informative from the start. If you are looking for a luxury stay in Franchshoek we would highly recommend this hotel!

Wow ... what an experience”
This was an absolute delight. We came up from Cape Town and were blown away by the staff, facilities, location, the atmosphere. We would “tour” during the day, take a few hours by the pool, go out to dinner, come back and avail of the nightcap. The ambience was fabulous. Our room was like something out of Africa. So comfortable. Every need was met and inclusive, which I liked. I knew what I had paid and I got what I needed. Totally recommend this location

Franschhoek delight”
Sadly had only one night stay in this fabulous boutique hotel. The owner Paul and his head Honcho Declan greeted us warmly and all the staff were attentive and went out of their way to help. Even to the extent of arranging some urgent laundry and running us down to the restaurant we had booked as it was looking to rain. The pre dinner drinks accompanied by Nicole on piano and a roaring fire in Orangery was very special. Will definitely return to allow us more time to soak up the whole indulgent experience provided at Akademie street. Deserves all it’s plaudits. One v minor issue brighter lighting in downstairs room in main house would be preferred. P & S H

Fabulous Boutique hotel in great location”
This is a stunning hotel, so many things to love about it. Rooms are beautiful, spacious and the outdoor space of each room is lovely. The breakfasts are great, and the complimentary pre dinner drinks go down a treat. Several different areas around the hotel where you can sit and relax, from the gorgeous sitting room to the outdoor fireplace or of course by the main pool area (that’s if you get bored of your own pool!) . But the best thing about the Akademie is the wonderful personal touch that Declan brings to the hotel. He knows every guest by name and always takes the time to chat. We also happened to meet the owner Paul who was very friendly and happy to sit and chat and tell us the background of the hotel and how he came to own it. Gutted to leave after 3 nights stay, will definitely stay again if we return to Franschhoek.

I would have to say this is the best boutique hotel I have had the pleasure of staying at. Each room is individual and equipped with everything you will surely require during your stay even down to the local mobile phone to use. The communal areas are quiet and inviting especially with the free cocktails and wine before you leave for your evening meal and the complementary nightcap on your return. The breakfast is amazing with everything you could wish for from the Fresh fruit platter and homemade granola to all combinations of cooked breakfast and of course champagne. The staff are very friendly and with all the help you need from Declan (what a character by the way)and Meena we had a great stay and would love to return in the near future.

PERFECTION from start to end!”
My husband and I stayed at Akademie for 3 nights for our mini moon after a busy wedding week and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect place, we fell in love with it! On arrival, we were welcomed by Declan who delivered the best arrival we have ever received. He showed us around the beautiful property, explained everything we needed to know in detail and took us to our cottage. It was incredible - the attention to detail is outstanding. We stayed in Oortuiging, the size of the cottage, bed, bathroom, heating, AC, free laundry service, restocked mini bar, quality of linen, towels and robes - it was pure luxury and outstanding! We were so comfortable and couldn't think of anything that wasn't already there. There's a cocktail gathering from 6pm to 8pm which unfortunately we didn't take part in but nice to know it is available. It's really easy to come and go and have your own space but there is always some available if you need anything. The breakfast was outstanding! Smoothies, coffee, fruit, muesli, yoghurt etc of a very high quality and then a broad choice of delicious cooked brekkies. One of the main selling points before booking was the location. We loved that you were remote in a quiet street but two blocks away from the Franschoek main street and all it's culinary delight! If you plan on visiting make sure you book your restaurants beforehand as they do book up very quickly. We had the best stay at Akademie and will without a doubt be back - it was truly a little piece of relaxation heaven!

The best accommodation ever! The attention to detail, the service, the food were all exceptional. ”
This accommodation and breakfast exceeded all of our expectations. The accommodation was stunning. The host, Declan, was really helpful in recommending and booking restaurants for us. The touches such as the champagne on arrival, snacks and drinks in the minibar, cocktails and wine in the lounge in the evening ( all free) and doing our laundry ( again, no charge for this) made this the perfect stay. We stayed for two nights. Would love to go back and stay for longer. Would definitely recommend this place.
