We were delighted by the excellent rooms, service and food at Akademie but the experience was soured significantly but one incident. One afternoon we came back to our room to find Arthur showing three people around. Arthur told us they were agents, but it hardly matters who it was. We we not asked permission for this to happen and felt... More

Thank you to Hazel, Katherine, Arthur and all the team - we had one of the best nights away at your beautiful guesthouse. From the moment we arrived, and were met by Hazel, the welcome was gracious and friendly. Our accommodation was beautiful - if only the weather had been better to enjoy the private garden and swimming pool. Very... More

What a lovely place to stay. The property is easy walking distance to town. The courtyard and pool area was a great place to relax after an exhausting day of wine-tasting. The property, including our room, was decorated with fabulous art. Katherine, her daughter and the rest of the staff made us feel right at home and well cared for.... More

As usual we were guided by Tripadvisor when choosing accommodation in Franschoek and Akademie Street boutique hotel ,being right on top in the ratings , was an automatic choice. We arrived with high expectations ,a dangerous thing in the hospitality industry. Hazel met us and her very professional but warm and sincere welcome immediately made us feel welcome and impressed...

It's difficult to find words to describe the experience of staying at the Akademie Guest House. Surrounded by beautiful paintings and sculptures and with our own little garden it was so delightful. Breakfast had been lovingly prepared and the garden provided a peaceful and attractive venue. On a chilly morning the library was also very inviting, some familiar titles and... More

Akademie Street Boutique Hotel has it all: a great location, charming accommodations, superb staff, gracious hospitality, and a wonderful outdoor breakfast. We knew when Hazel greeted us at the front door we were in for a special lodging experience. Her warmth, concern for our well being, and pride in the hotel immediately came through. We stayed in Twyfeling B; a... More

From start to finish this was an exceptional experience. Starting with a warm welcome you are led into beautiful accommodation with wonderfully scenic views. It is a very peaceful and relaxing place. Only regret is that I only booked 1 night! Thanks to Hazel who made us feel so welcome.

My wife and I selected this property based on the reviews on TA for our 4 night stay in Franschhoek. It lived up to all the comments. Katherine, Arthur, Jess, and Anna (their labrador) were wonderful and friendly hosts. They provided so much information for places to see and what to do, and they also provided their recommendations for restaurants,... More
