Had I known how incredilby amazing Akademie Street Hotel is, I would have planned much more than just one night here! I am so upset with myself for not staying longer! The guesthouses are unbelievable, the owners are incredibly friendly, the breakfast was delicious and...More
I stayed at Akademie Guesthouse for two nights in September (winter in South Africa) solo, and chose Akademie based on the great reviews here. I was not disappointed!

This was our second trip to Akademie street, and this was every bit as good as the first. It's fair to say that if returning to south africa we would be tempted to come straight from the airport to here!
The rooms are very comfortable,...More
We stayed here for three nights and it was the perfect place to chill out in the winelands. The guesthouse is lovely, and we stayed in the Uitsig room which had a great little balcony with some views f the surrounding mountains. The staff were...More
Wish we would have booked at least two nights, We arrived late and had to leave early, so barely got to see the lovely enclosed garden. In the few minutes with our lovely hosts, they booked a dinner reservation, made early breakfast arrangements. Right next...More

I believe that Arthur and his family have recently sold the Guest House. We are thinking of booking for next year but are concerned that the standards which have made this a No 1 Tripadvisor hoice, may slip? Views?

Hi Jackie. My name is Declan and I am part of the new ownership team; there is only two of us. I am here on a day to day basis as we felt it important that we have an active presence over here. So I am over here full time for better or for worse. The obvious answer to your question, from someone in my position answering it, would be of course we are maybe even better. But of course that would be arrogant and I am not the right person to answer your question. We certainly hope we are and we certainly strive to be. We want to be even better, if that is possible. I suggest that you check out our recent reviews and listen to the best and most important views - our guests. Our aim, always was and remains not change anything, from the name, the management team,the staff,the ethos and the entire Offer. Thankfully we have managed this and the exact team is still in place, doing the same great job. We have forged a great friendship with Arthur and Katherine and they still very much advise us on how to maintain and even improve on this great Offer they have left us with. Even Anna the dog is still a regular visitor to Akademie Street, need I say any more! Why would we choose to change a winning formula! We only try to implement subtle changes to improve the guests overall experience. We believe we have.
So in short, please check out our recent reviews on Tripadvisor and notice that from the very recent Tripadvisor awards we have managed to maintain Akademie Street's rightful position; actually improving in some of the categories.
And of course we would be delighted to welcome you once again to Akademie Street and let you judge us for yourself.
