My wife and I stayed at Akademie for three nights. The hotel/guesthouse was chosen do to its high praises and it managed to surpass our expectations. We stayed in one of two rooms in the main house. Each room has a private garden area, our enormous, bright bathroom with heated-floors led to our garden which contained a soothing fountain. Our room also had a lovely sitting area, complimentary mini-bar and snacks, king size bed with heated blankets. After a day out on the town we came home and snuggled up to a movie we took out of the small communal, but well curated DVD collection.
Every morning the breakfast service was impeccable. In fact the entire staff was extremely accommodating and helpful in planning a self-driven wine route. Arthur helped us one night get a reservation at Ryan's Kitchen, which was our best meal in Franschhoek.
We would certainly come back, perhaps in the summer to see the plants in full bloom and use the well designed pools. You can't go wrong with this place if you are looking for a relaxing, luxurious, yet unassuming place to stay in Franschhoek and I would recommend it as a destination if you are in the Cape Town area in fact.
