Akademie was the perfect place to escape the everyday. From the moment we arrived to the last few moments when we left, the Akademie team treated us with warm grace. The rooms have everything you might need and the entire experience is indulgent! From lazing at the pool and having bubbly in the heated jacuzzi to the famous breakfast. We hope to come back again. Franshoek and Akademie was exactly what we needed.

The hotel is something out of the ordinary in that each room is unique and the whole experience is something special. We were made to feel welcome the moment we entered the front door and we enjoyed every moment of our short stay. The breakfast served in the shade outdoors was most enjoyable. Would suggest a longer stay to really appreciate all the finer touches. Really something special and worthy of its awards.
