What a beautiful stay. The service was terrific. I have never been met at a hotel by a dog waiting for our arrive. I only wish that I could have taken the dog home as he was a treasure. I love the hotel, the service and the attention to detail. Well done!

My husband and I enjoyed our two nights recently at the Akademie Street Boutique Hotel in Franschhoek, S. Africa. Hazel was charming and met us at our room which was actually a two story house, the Gelatenheid guest house. She showed us around and made us feel right at home. Our accommodations were very comfortable with all amenities available to... More

The Akademie is special!; our room was very spacious with an enormous, bigger than king sized bed, a large modern bath, beautiful art work and a view of the lovely Greco style pool and garden. The main house. where we were entertained at breakfast was comfortable and cozy. The owners and the staff were very friendly and efficient. The food... More

My husband & I stayed at Akademie Guesthouse as part of our honeymoon, and everything was amazing! Hazel was incredible in accommodating our food allergies and ensured that when they served us a beautiful, giant breakfast we could eat everything :) We appreciated the local cell phone they gave us to use during our trip which helped us make our...

Beautiful accommodation, we stayed in the Gelatenheid guest house. It definitely, did not disappoint. The upstairs bedroom loft was huge, absolutely beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The views from the balcony were stunning and the location is perfect, just a short stroll to the Main Street of Franschoek. The service was also exceptional and the breakfast delicious. I would absolutely... More

After a lengthy holiday to South Africa we ended our trip in the Cape wine lands. After some consideration we decided to stay in Franschhoek at Akademie. Upon arrival we were given information covering anything you may need to know about the guesthouse, the local village and surrounding wine lands. Our room 'Uitsig' was generous in size with a balcony... More

We went there for the weekend, beautiful experience. Service was exceptional and the best breakfast ever. You just feel most welcome from the minute you arrive until you leave. I would highly recommend the hotel. Thank you very much.

Super weekend stay. Even with rainy weather, plenty of very close restaurants. Very much enjoyed the Gelatenheid guesthouse. Lots of privacy, but with discreet service, including laundry. Only regret not being able to use the private pool due to cold weather.

I can write as many compliments as I can since everything was superb at Akademie Street. From the arrival to the departure it was one big feeling of being the most wanted guest. We stayed in the nice house oortuiging which was even larger than we thought it would be seeing it on several websites. The privacy in this house... More
