Akademie Street Boutique Hotel has it all: a great location, charming accommodations, superb staff, gracious hospitality, and a wonderful outdoor breakfast. We knew when Hazel greeted us at the front door we were in for a special lodging experience. Her warmth, concern for our well being, and pride in the hotel immediately came through. We stayed in Twyfeling B; a large comfortable room with its own conservatory. The hotel was remarkably quiet at night and the breakfasts in the main courtyard by the pool were remarkable. Fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, toast, eggs cooked to order, South African sausage, tomatoes, and mushrooms hit the spot. We fell in love with the David Walters honey pot and visited his ceramics shop to bring one home. Our morning visits during breakfast by Hazel, Auntie Margie, and owner Katherine were delightful. Anna the dog spent quite a bit of time by our side. It was an easy walk to main street to take in all of the wonderful shops and restaurants. (Visit the Saturday Market if you get the chance for good food, wine, beer, and gifts to take home.) Although we had to leave very early on a Sunday morning to catch our flight, Hazel arranged for a early cold breakfast to be served in our conservatory. We would definitely stay at Akademie Street Hotel again, and can highly recommend it.
