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.

Travelling around the Cape this was just about our best stay. Room was large, really clean and facilities placed by a person who has obviously suffered trying to use a hairdryer some distance from a mirror so full marks for that. We had dinner there and really enjoyed it, lamb done to perfection and so were the vegetables, a rarity... More

Excellent excellent excellent - amazing, friendly, caring hosts, brilliant, safe setting, great food, and a "different" setting for a cosy bar full of rare, collectors' label whiskeys to sample in a charming old Church building. Rooms great, huge shower! And ohh yes, I slept like a baby.

When I want a nice comfortable place to stay with really good hosts, I go to the Angler and Antelope. I also enjoy the excellent fly fishing for trout in the well stock rivers and dams, Alan is very knowledgeable about this beautiful sport. The food is always great and they have a well stocked bar. The little fly fishing... More

The problem with reading amazing reviews is that you set the place you're going to up for failure. I expected more of this guest house, based on the reviews. But here's the pro's and con's based on my one night stay: What's good about the place: The rooms are very spacious. The bathroom was absolutely amazing, probably the best part... More

We understand that various platforms of multi-media marketing can be misleading, which is exactly why we have virtual tours of all our facilities on our website, so that clients do not come with preconceived expectations. Places offering accommodation, by law, have to keep a record of guests staying with them. This also serves a dual purpose in covering the establishment... More
