Not even a hint of a poor experience
The breakfasts were incredibly delicious and relaxing. The staff went above and beyond to organize wine tours, recommend restaurants and provide complimentary services that we greatly appreciated.

Akademie guesthouse felt like a home from home. It has only six rooms which are very spacious. We were given a suite in separate building in the compound which was very private. We had kitchen facilities, a living room and a very spacious bedroom. A small private swimming pool also came with this suite as well as private parking space for the car. Bed was very comfortable. All the drinks in the bar were free which was a welcome surprise. The breakfast was the best we've had in a long time. The all inclusive package was really good if a little expensive.

There's nothing we didn't like. It's pricey for S Africa but it is unique
It was all good. A unique property. really well equipped. The privacy, location and the space are the great bits. Really spacious. No need to see anyone except at breakfast. So wonderfully situated for the village, everything is a walk away.

We stayed in the Oortuiging cottage, unfortunately only for one night. Everything was perfect! The staff was extremely helpful, the cottage is beautifully equipped and you even have a little garden with a little pool to relax.

There was nothing that we did not like.
This place was amazing. It is in a great location close to everything, but off the main area, so very quiet & peaceful. The place is very clean & beautiful. The staff is very friendly & helpful, but respect your privacy. The breakfast is incredible.

We were leaving at 8:15 and they advised us that breakfast was served from 8-10, so they would only be able to give us a cold breakfast, which seemed ridiculous. They also were adamant that their extensive library was not for lending and to please leave any books I looked at even though I asked if I could leave my paperback book which I had finished and requested to take one of theirs for my trip.
Lovely big room, nice bathroom, beautiful buildings, charming place to stay.

Loved the whole Akademie Street experience. Rooms beautiful- full of light. Staff and owners could not have been nicer or more helpful. Great recommendations for restaurants etc. Plenty of info e mailed prior to stay. Would have loved to sray longer, maybe in better weather!

The attention to detail was just fantastic. Very tastefully decorated and our 'room' had absolutely everything that we required and more. Our quirky 'glass bathroom' was unusual and awesome. Such a wonderfully calming atmosphere. Very tasty home grown/made 'everything' for breakfast - a fabulous retreat in beautiful surroundings.

No negative points.
Amazing! It felt like someone's home rather than a hotel. The owners and staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Superb service throughout our stay. Amazing art work throughout the property. We have travelled extensively and this is one of the best places we have stayed in. We would not hesitate to recommend and stay in Akademie Street again. Our son , in particular, loved his time with Anna, the dog.

Quiet location, charming house, attentive helpful staff.
