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

The food and service of the unique property is really perfect. It is value for money. The fly-fishing experience is wonderful and surrounding stunning. To relax and get away from it all - go there. Annabel and Alan are such lovely hosts. Go to the Karoo and Somerset East - it is authentic, real and beautiful!

My wife and I recently spent 3 days at the Angler & Antelope Guesthouse. in the company of Alan and Annabelle (the owners and hosts). It's really a very interesting establishment because of the fact that it is partly comprised of the old unused church and preachers residence. We stayed in the self catering cottage (which is the old Rectory).... More

After reading the great reviews, we were expecting better. We arrived on a Sunday, and had the impresssion of disturbing. The self catering cottage doesn't even have a kitchenette, so it is very difficult to self cater. The bed was small and not comfortable. It was a hot day, and there was no spot in the shade for us to... More

We are terribly sorry that you did not have a good experience at our establishment. The Family Cottage that you stayed in is marketed and advertised as a family cottage with self-catering facilities. We apologize for the misunderstanding. We wish we had had the opportunity to react to your discomfort at the time. More

The previous reviewers have said it all already - this place is a gem. The underfloor heating in my room was the ultimate luxury! Small touches such as filter coffee in the rooms, great quality linen and towels and neat finishes add to the experience. There is secure off-street parking and an on-site deli and restaurant. The region itself is... More

The Angler & Antelope is charming. Alan & Annabelle are wonderful and attentive hosts and the area around Somerset East is spectacular. Alan assisted my husband and son with the best fishing spots and advice and made sure we discovered places that were enjoyable for the whole family. Annabelle's food is outstanding and the rooms are extremely comfortable. This is... More

It was by accident that we landed up in Somerset East after a tyre blow-out, but what a great experience it was. The booking was done while limping through to Somerset East at night and the very hospitable hosts were fantastic from welcoming us at our late night arrival, to getting the tyre place to open on a Public Holiday!...
