"Welcoming and friendly"

"From the moment we were welcomed into Akademie Street Guest House, we felt relaxed. We were able to be as private as we liked, and felt warmly included when we went to breakfast (which was beautifully made with a delicious selection of fresh herbs in the omelette). The facilities in the stunningly furnished and spacious room left us wanting for nothing. We only wish that we had been able to stay longer."

"We enjoyed our stay- it is a great place and we would go back! Andrew and Katherine are great hosts - nothing was too much trouble and the breakfasts were the best ever! Their staff are lovely and everything was spotless. We were also most impressed with your service and to have directions sent to us on the day of our arrival was just amazing so thank you very much and we will definitely use you again if we return to South Africa!!"
