Akademie Street Boutique Hotel Questions & Answers

Has anyone stayed in the newly renovated Gelatenheid cottage/suites? If you had to pick one of the Gelatenheid suites instead of the whole cottage, would suite A or B be your preference?

The renovations looks amazing!!

Hi Michelle, It's Declan here from Akademie Street. Thanks for your enquiry. Hopefully, you will get some independent answers to your query, but let me just outline a few of the differences between Gelatenheid A & B. Both are similarly finished to the same high 5 star standards & in a similar style, but the ground floor - B is ever so slightly larger. It boasts a larger lounge area and has a kitchen. It also has it's own private external entrance & private parking bay. The big advantage with the upstairs suite, is obviously the balcony and of course the views! Whilst my own personal preference would be 'B' on the ground floor, early indications are that guests prefer the upstairs 'A' suite! But, as I say, hopefully, you will get some independent opinions. Kind Regards, Declan.

Hi Michelle,

Can't answer your question correctly but for past 3 yeasr we have stayed in 'big' Gelatenheid with huge enjoyment.(We were almost bundled by the renovation team as were the last to stay in 'big' G). Next year we booked B based on access convenience, pool right there and the fact that during our stays all our time apart from sleeping has been downstairs where we were also able to entertain and the kitchen is a big +. Think downstairs convenience makes up for maybe a diminished view.

Whichever you will enjoy.Hopes this helps.

Hi Michelle,

My husband and I stayed in B and LOVED it!! It was so comfortable and "homey" and really nice having access to the street as we had rented a car and could park our car in our own private driveway. The outdoor deck and pool was amazing. We loved it.

We stayed in B as I recall. I believe they are both equally nice.

We stayed in the main house. It was lovely. The outside rooms were occupied so we didn’t get to see them.

Hi Michelle,

Can't answer your question unfortunately as we stayed in Oortuiging A & B, however, I am sure whichever you choose, it will be great.
