Akademie Street is a perfect place to stay in Franschhoek: it is central, so easy to access the many excellent restaurants in town. The facilities at the beautifully appointed hotel are everything one needs and nothing is too much trouble for the friendly and professional staff. We had a large room in the main house, which had it's own solarium... More

We stayed here earlier in the year and loved it so much we came back for more! Nothing had changed & we even got to have the same room. The service, ambience, breakfasts, cleanliness is all just perfect along with the most comfortable bed in South Africa! Declan and his team are so helpful and we couldn't want for anything... More

The best place we have ever stayed. Impeccable service, nothing too much trouble, and generally thinking 3 steps ahead of you, anticipating your every need. Exquisite breakfast, free laundry and drinks fridge. We stayed in the most expensive room (a double story cottage) - acres of space, our own pool and privacy. Perhaps not the best value / cheapest around... More

From the second we arrived at Akedemie we were treated impeccably. Declan cannot be praised enough for his contribution to our stay here; from making bookings to asking the chefs for the recipe for their stunning roasted tomatoes, nothing was too much trouble. The room was enormous and exceptionally comfortable, the complimentary mini bar a nice touch (they even provided... More

This was our second visit to Akademie Street. It was wonderful to be back as the very high standards we remembered from our first visit were still in effect! The staff remembered us from our previous visit and greeted us warmly. Anything we wanted was provided. Advice to the management and staff, please do not change a thing! Still very... More

Your stay begins with a warm welcome and when it's time to leave you won't want to! All the staff are helpful and make your stay enjoyable, sharing stories and local knowledge. The rooms, house and garden areas are wonderful. All the little details, and more, have been thought of and contribute to making your stay special. Breakfast is excellent... More

This is a really gem in Franschhoek. Everything is just perfect, starting with the friendly and helpful staff! We have stayed in the Oortuiging cottage. If you are not out for wine tasting or other activities you can perfectly relax in the garden or cool down in the pool.
