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

My wife and I stayed at Akademie for three nights. The hotel/guesthouse was chosen do to its high praises and it managed to surpass our expectations. We stayed in one of two rooms in the main house. Each room has a private garden area, our enormous, bright bathroom with heated-floors led to our garden which contained a soothing fountain. Our... More

My wife & I stayed at Akademie for three nights as part of our honeymoon in South Africa. We'd read some excellent reviews prior to booking (recommended by our travel agent) but nothing prepared us for just how accommodating and hospitable Katherine, Hazel & Arthur made our stay. Nothing was too much trouble and all members of staff went to... More

Just perfect ! Beautiful place. Excellent Hospitality! We were made to feel very comfortable right from the time of check in. We were well cared for and All of our requirements (Vegetarian food, etc.) were well attended to. Hazel, Katherine and Arthur form an excellent team and many big hotels (esp. Sun City ones) should learn about hospitality from them.... More
