We stayed for 4 nights in the Uitsig room. I cannot really say anything that others haven't already said. The hotel is ideally placed, the service beyond any expectations of mine. A truly delightful place to stay and Franschoek such a scenic place. A far better place to base yourself for a winelands trip than Stellenbosch in my opinion.
This hotel set such a high standard, nothing else could compare. We only spent 11 nights in SA travelling from Capetown, around the winelands and back via Hermanus but Akademie and the Franschoek valley were without doubt the highlight of our trip.
The Uitsig room is a huge space which you have all to yourself. It's located just a few steps away from the main house above their unused garage (used as a store) so is really peaceful.
I'd like to thank Elisabeth and all her staff for a wonderful stay and if Anna looks like she's put on a pound or two apologise for 'treating' her at the breakfast table ! (hint: She likes Eggy bread) :-)
At this moment the temperature in the UK is about 1c, it's snowing heavy and I wish I could be right back there now, this instant. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Akademie to anyone.
