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
Second visit and just as fabulous! We were in Oortuiging which is a separate cottage with front door directly onto the quiet street so you feel very private and self-contained. The back door leads to a private patio where you can relax on the leather...More
Stunning property comparable to other amazing places we stay in SA and half the price. Sadly only there for 1 night. Would whole heartedly recommend. 2 days later i realised i must have left my mouthguard, so the staff ended up fishing through the rubbish,...More
This property gives new heightened definition to a guesthouse. It is truly beautiful inside and out with attention to every detail imaginable. The accommodations are elegant but comfortable and homey at the same time. It is, however, the owners along with their caring staff who...More
We adored this place! The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful, and they made us feel welcome. They went out of their way to be helpful, by calling various wineries for us to double check hours, by providing a more detailed map than we had,...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.
