Charming place where everything has been thought about.excellent service,beautiful surroundings, attention to detail superb.
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.
There was nothing that we did not like.
So nice. Beautiful cottage with everything you can dream of. Lovely and very helpfull staff. Absolutely loved it.
Having to leave.
Lovely big room, nice bathroom, beautiful buildings, charming place to stay.
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.
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!
This place is amazing!
They have thought of everything! Great location and lovely staff.
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.
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.
No negative points.
Artwork all over the walls Beautiful cottages with nice furnishings A pleasant garden Espresso machine
Nothing - wish we'd stayed longer
One of the most amazing and relaxing places I have ever stayed. The attention to detail is superb and the service is exceptional. A special word of thanks to Hazel who made us feel so welcome.
Quiet location, charming house, attentive helpful staff.
rather expensive for SA, could do with more hot choice for breakfast e.g. eggs benedict.
The welcome, location, size and comfort of the room, general ambience. Good breakfast too!
A very friendly and attentive family with excellent support staff who were virtually unobtrusive. Our room Twyfeling B was spacious and well appointed. Breakfast was a huge (and I mean huge) delight catering for all tastes. This is an upmarket establishment which is not inexpensive by South African standards but it provides value for money and privacy nonetheless. Arthur and Katherine's helpful hints on places to go, restaurants to eat in was invaluable. We'll be back on future trips to the Western Cape.
We had the old cottage with a small garden and pool....it was brilliant.Breakfast was top class and the staff most helpful.We will stay there again
Excellent location. Very friendly and lovely staff. Wonderful breakfast. Very well equiped room with everything, including laundry and mini bar inclusive in room rate. Charming owners.
Nothing. It deserves the highest possible rating
Wonderful rooms, friendly, charming, helpful and professional staff. Lovely breakfast under arbor and charming wonderful rooms, ea very private and with own walled garden and water feature. - Could not have been better!!
Nothing except having to leave to go home!!
Best place we stayed at in SA! Delicious breakfast, homely feeling, very friendly and helpful staff, cosy interior and nice and comfortable rooms. We'll come back!
Bit noisy because of building activities next door but would have loved to stay another night, unfortunately it was fully booked.
-the room was just perfect: bright, clean, excellent furnitures taste. - home made food for breakfast - complementary drinks and snacks in the room - availability of the staff - perfect location in the city center
Great Service, great food. Beautiful facility. They even washed our car without us asking.
Everything, the experience was flawless and the warm hospitality of Hazel, Arthur and Catherine exceeded all expectations.
Very friendly reception, fantastic breakfasts - beautifully presented. Very comfortable room with all requirements met. No request was too much trouble.
