Declan and his team have continued and even improved upon the perfect standards of the previous owners. We stayed 4 years ago as a couple and returned with 2 young children. Oortuiging was the perfect setup for us with a bed and a cot for the kids. Breakfast was again to die for, the room was spotless and well maintained,... More

We arrived early afternoon and recevied a very warm and open welcome. The Akademie Hotel is located right in the center of Franchhoek but in a very quiet street parallel to the mainroad. We stayed for only one night because we couldn't get additional nights since the hotel was fully booked. We enjoyed every minute, the service, the spatious room,... More

We first stayed at this boutique hotel 2 years ago and were very impressed with their approach to guests and their privacy. It has since changed hands from the original owners but any fears we may have had were allayed at once by the welcome we received and we were thoroughly spoiled. Declan, Stacey and their staff looked after all... More

We arrived in Franschhoek for a 3 nights stay over New Year. Having visited Franschhoek previously we were aware of the excellent accommodation (and restaurants) available in the area. However, on arrival at Akademie Street our high expectations were exceeded. The accommodation and friendliness of the staff - particularly Declan - was simply outstanding. The hotel is perfectly situated in... More

This is easily the single best hotel we have ever stayed. The service is first class, the (very few - 6 in total) rooms beautiful, beds the size of small countries and the breakfast to die for. Great location for all your Franshhoek needs. Not expensive for what it is, nothing is left to chance here you will be looked... More

A beautiful house, well situated in Franschoek. The rooms are of a good quality and the communal rooms are well appointed with art and pottery, creating a very impressive interior. We visited at night and there was only a night guard on duty, we were shown (quite unceremoniously) to our rooms and then left to our own devices with no... More

A wonderful, welcoming Guest House in a peaceful residential street just a short stroll into Franschhoek. Declan and the ladies could not have been more friendly and helpful. We had one of the cottages in the garden, perfect as we were three adults. The plunge pool was a real bonus after a hot day visiting the wine farms, many of... More
