stay My husband and I just spent four nights in the magical and whimsical Akademie Street Boutique Hotel and we can’t say enough good things about it. From the moment we arrived, we were in awe of this lovely hotel. We were greeted so warmly by Declan who seems to magically appear to meet your every need. From restaurant recommendations and reservations to day excursion ideas and lots in between, he made our stay so comfortable and easy. The location is perfect as well…a minute walk to the main street of Franschhoek. The decor of the hotel, the setting and the outdoor spaces are all just stunning and relaxing. We also had the pleasure of meeting the owner and hearing the story of the property and you soon realize how his vision has made this hotel so captivating. We have traveled extensively and there are a few special places in this world that we will always remember and this is definitely at the top of the list. Do not hesitate to book this fantastic hotel in beautiful Franschhoek.

Fantastic place. I'd highly recommend. The manager, Declan, was so gracious and determined to make sure we had everything we could dream of... Great location and you can't go wrong with the food nearby. If we come back to South Africa we will definitely stay here and recommend to all we meet and know.

Staff are so friendly. We arrived really early so they looked after all our bags, allowing us to go & have a wine tasting & lunch. The rooms are quirky - very traditional to look at but with all mod cons you could ask for. Breakfast was amazing - so much choice! & a lovely idea to have sundowner & night cap drinks

Highly recommended
The staffs are extremely thoughtful and organised. Their recommendations for restaurants and things to do are gold. The breakfast, especially the fresh fruits and muesli were also one of the best we’ve had. Overall fantastic.

Very private with exquisite rooms, unbelievable breakfast and wonderful staff. It is in the middle of town so all the restaurants are a short very safe walk away.

Fabulous place to stay with Declan looking after all your needs. It’s more like a friends house than a hotel which makes your stay far more relaxed. From great breakfast in the morning to pre dinner drinks then a nightcap on your return before bed ,what more do you need.Don’t forget to book a restaurant as Franschhoek is the eating place to be but again Declan came to the rescue getting us in at some local eateries. It was our first trip to South Africa and to have an Irish welcome made us feel at home and what a crack. We will be back Paul & Helen
