This is a beautiful small hotel which anticipates and meets all your needs - there was really nothing we wanted that wasn't there already! We stayed for 2 nights in early September and celebrated my husband's birthday whilst we were there (at The Tasting Room which is within easy walking distance). After a trip to the desert and the Northern... More

My wife and I spent one night at Akademie Street recently and have to say this is possibly the nicest place we have ever stayed. The quality of the rooms, amenities and service is first rate, but the most impressive thing is how unique and special the property has been made. Our rooms were furnished and decorated very tastefully and... More

We recently stayed at Akademie for a week in the Uitsig room - what a pleasure. Walking distance to the town centre and all the restaurants but still very quiet and peaceful. The room was very well appointed with all the amenities you could wish for. The fact that everything was included in the room price (including mini bar and... More

We recently spent two nights at the Akademie Street Boutique Hotel in the Uitsig Room and were very impressed and happy with the accommodations, grounds and level of service we received. First, the location of this property is fantastic. It is literally a few blocks off the main drag of restaurants and shops in Franschhoek, which makes for easy access... More

My husband and I spent three nights at Akademie Street. This was the last stop on our three week Africa trip, and we were very tired by the time we got there. However, staying here closed our trip on a fabulous note! What they have done is created a small piece of heaven in Franschhoek. The property sits on a... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon. We stayed in the beautiful guest house - the decor is beautiful and unlike any other hotel I have ever stayed in. Fantastic amenities including a private plunge pool and the most amazing bath tub. The breakfasts were delicious - the homemade granola in particular! Total luxury and total privacy. Highly recommended.

We have stayed at many beautiful boutique guesthouses around the world, but this would have to rate as one of the best. We were 3 couples on a golf and game park tour of South Africa, and placed Akademie Street on a similar rating with Londolozi (best game park in South Africa) and Fancourt Country Club (best golf course in...

I would usually reserve “paradise” for a description of a stay in a sumptuous house with a stunning view of the ocean. However, Akademie is one of those very special places where the surroundings are gorgeous, the individual accommodations impeccably lovely, the breakfasts superbly prepared and the owners and staff warm, welcoming and helpful. We arrived several hours early and... More

We stayed one night in Akademie and it was just awesome (we rented 'Oortuiging'). Location in Franschhoek is perfect, service outstanding. Accommodation was very spacious, luxurious and clean. Privacy 100% guaranteed, with private garden and pool, very beautiful. The help we got in organizing transport for us to have dinner in the Rust & Vrede restaurant (and drink some very... More

This is a very nice hotel and exudes a certain old-world Franschhoek charm. My suite was very well appointed, clean, and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. The Front Desk was great, arranging a number of requests and the front desk staff was courteous and professional. Meeting a friend at the Bar was nice, as the staff was superb and the... More
