Akademie is an absolute hidden gem. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by name by Declan, we felt absolutely welcome and were so thrilled to have picked this guest house. The owners of Akademie have furnished the hotel to absolute perfection. Many of the furnishings are sourced from overseas and give the place its feel of total elegance. There are enough different areas in the hotel to keep guests occupied throughout their stay and Declan and his team could not have done more to enhance our enjoyment of our stay. Breakfast had a legendary reputation and did not disappoint, it is one of the best I have had in any hotel. Evening drinks were a delight as was the pianist, as well as the after dinner nightcaps offered to guests. We were so sad not to have stayed for longer than our two nights but we have already booked our return. Thank you to Declan, Chris, Meena, Stacey and all of the team for everything. We loved staying with you and cannot speak highly enough of Akademie.
