You will love everything about this marvellous Guest House, the experience was flawless and the warm hospitality of Hazel, Arthur and Catherine exceeded all expectations.

It is not a hotel, more a home and a place where you're welcomed warmly by the owners. The breakfast is indescribable, best we've ever tasted.

Our room was piece of art, well decorated, maintained with lots of amenities so you feel like home.

Franschoek is a paradise and this 5 stars guest house is an ideal spot for couples on honeymoon/ get-away.

To be honnest, we didn't fall in love with Franschhoek itself, but we loved our stay in the Akademie Street Boutique Hotel. The hotel is perfectly located so that you can do almost everything on foot, but is yet just enough on the outskirts of town to be calm and cosy. The service is impecable, and the owners as well as staff are kind as can be, always there to point out something or somewhere to go depending on your desires. Their restaurant recommandations were just perfect! We might not have fallen for Franchhoek, but we certainly will never forget our gourmet experiences at "Le Quartier Francais", "Tokara", and Bread and Wine".
Breakfast was delicious, and the private pool was the icing on the cake after a long walk and a lot of wine tasting.
I just hope we can stay there again in a near future.
