Boutique luxury in Franschhoek”

My wife and I were passing through Franschhoek for a night (Sat 21 May 2016) and decided to spend it at Akademie Street. We arrived late in the afternoon and were met by the very charming, efficient and business-like Declan with the Irish accent to match! Lovely to stay at a place where the little extras are included in the deal i.e. wine, whiskey, port etc in the lounge, a half bottle of SA Sparkling wine (MCC) in the mini bar plus shorts of whiskey, gin, amarula as well as snacks and an Illy pod coffee machine. We had a king-size bed with crisp, clean linen which was firm and comfy. Breakfast on Sunday morning was served in our private Solarium. We opted for the "cold" breakfast only which included fresh fruits, yoghurt, home made muesli, stewed fruit plus fresh toast and jam. A strong bodum of fresh coffee also hit the mark. In summary, it's a great place to stay if you are visiting the wine farms and other gastronomic delights in the area and we will certainly be back...but we would prefer to stay for 2 nights at least next time.

Look no Further...Didn't Want to Leave”

After extensive research into accommodation in the area I "settled" on Akademie Street Boutique Hotel (ASBH). Travelling to S.A. on our honeymoon, having spent 10 days in the Kruger we wanted relaxation and romance!!! I made 2 mistakes: 1. I was not "settling". ASBH is undoubtedly the most fabulous accommodation we have ever been lucky enough to treat ourselves to. I wouldn't change a single detail (which is very unlike me) and my goodness what detail. Exquisitely decorated, the comfortable opulence a delight to the eye. The team at ASBH were a beautiful mix of generous , fun, respectful and informed, welcoming each guest with open arms and a warm smile, cleverly moulding their attuned hosting skills to the requirements of each guest. 2. We didn't stay long enough. I made the mistake of thinking 2 nights sufficient - incorrect. There is so much to enjoy here, 4 nights the minimum. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough - essentially look no further. It is a must!!

Fabulous Boutique hotel in great location”

This is a stunning hotel, so many things to love about it. Rooms are beautiful, spacious and the outdoor space of each room is lovely. The breakfasts are great, and the complimentary pre dinner drinks go down a treat. Several different areas around the hotel where you can sit and relax, from the gorgeous sitting room to the outdoor fireplace or of course by the main pool area (that’s if you get bored of your own pool!) . But the best thing about the Akademie is the wonderful personal touch that Declan brings to the hotel. He knows every guest by name and always takes the time to chat. We also happened to meet the owner Paul who was very friendly and happy to sit and chat and tell us the background of the hotel and how he came to own it. Gutted to leave after 3 nights stay, will definitely stay again if we return to Franschhoek.

Franschhoek delight”

Sadly had only one night stay in this fabulous boutique hotel. The owner Paul and his head Honcho Declan greeted us warmly and all the staff were attentive and went out of their way to help. Even to the extent of arranging some urgent laundry and running us down to the restaurant we had booked as it was looking to rain. The pre dinner drinks accompanied by Nicole on piano and a roaring fire in Orangery was very special. Will definitely return to allow us more time to soak up the whole indulgent experience provided at Akademie street. Deserves all it’s plaudits. One v minor issue brighter lighting in downstairs room in main house would be preferred. P & S H

Better than excellent ”

This was our first visit to Franschhoek & what made the journey from the UK worthwhile was staying at the Akedemie Street Boutique Hotel. Declan & his team didn’t need a second chance to make a first impression it was obvious from the moment we arrived that the service facilities and everything else were second to none. Our only issue was self inflicted, we had only booked for two nights! Highly recommended John & Christine
