The reviews on Trip Advisor had led us to have high expectations of Akademie Street but they were wildly exceeded by what proved to be one of the favourite hotels stays we can ever recall. The elegant, effortless, seamless service we experienced comes, of course, from fanatical attention to detail but you are never aware of this. Everybody is devoted to your stay being an absolute joy and Hazel and her team do a wonderful job with delightful service which is friendly, attentive but never cloying.
The accommodations are laid out around the gardens in such a way that you enjoy total privacy and are hardly aware that others are also staying at the property. The breakfasts with their locally sourced ingredients were beautifully prepared and presented and it was hard to drag ourselves away to go out and explore Franschoek and the surrounding area. Except, of course, that Catherine and Arthur were a fountain of knowledge about everything the area has to offer and we did get to see and do so much.
We can't wait to share with others what Catherine and Arthur have created here. There is a touch of magic that enriched our enjoyment of South Africa and we can't recommend Akademie Street highly enough.
