Angler and Antelope in Somerset East is run by Alan and Annabelle Hobson, whose energy and commitment to the guesthouse and the associated flyfishing activities has paid dividends. The central reception/bar/ restaurant area is housed in a small deconsecrated Catholic Church, while the rooms themselves are some 20 meters away in a separate building. My bedroom was spacious, with solid... More

Outstanding, excellent. 4th visit and just gets better every time. The service and attention to detail is amazing. A must getaway if you want to be spoilt. The food is master chef quality and rooms something to experience. No comfort detail left to chance.

Being taking some of my customers to Angler for last three tears and a real winner. Best hosts you will ever find and fishing always great. Alan will go out of his way to make sure every angler gets the best opportunity to catch more than enough fish and youalways leave thereknowing that you learned a hell of a lot... More

I was very pleasantly surprised to find this up-market accommodation at a reasonable rate. Very clean & neat. Clearly significant attention is given to the detail to make the whole experience relaxed and comfortable. I'll gladly recommend it to other discerning guests.

We spent three fantastic days with Alan - fly fishing. The accommodation at Angler and Antelope was top notch, the evenings around the bar were really great. Annabelle's food was absolutely outstanding (lemon meringue roulade to die for). Alan's guiding is phenomenal - such detailed dedication and thoroughness. A privileged experience - well done Alan and Annabelle. Stephen Theo

The rooms are massive and the breakfast is really good. Full dstv which you don't usually find. The hosts are passionate and very accommodating. Alan is the go to guy for trout fishing and knows all the local spots. The best place to stay in Somerset-East.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We would like to point out that the DSTV in our rooms is the hospitality bouquet with selected additional channels, and whilst it is quite comprehensive, it is unfortunately not full DSTV. More

We spent 3 nights with Alan & Annabelle. The food, accommodation and hospitality was excellent. We managed to share some quality fishing time with Alan which was also a bonus. This was our second stay and will likely become a routine stop for our travels around the Eastern Cape in the future. Thank you for everything, Phil & Carina

The "Angler & Antelope" is located in the centre of Somerset East in old, historic residential buidings: the old church serves as reception and restaurant. The historic buildings are a beautiful and unique location. The friendly and familiar atmosphere made me feel welcome and "at home" everytime I stayed; I have been here 3 times this year several weeks. Nice,... More

I have stayed / overnighted at A & A on business trips a few times already. My RETURN AGAIN title of this review speaks for itself. Besides just the spacious, comfortable en suit bedrooms it is a pleasure to go to an early morning breakfast and enjoy the friendly company and service offered by Annabel & Allan.
