What a gem! On arrival, we were welcomed by Annabelle and shown to our room which was the Executive King. the room was large and comfortably furnished, the bathroom also large with a shower, bath and 2 basins.. We were there on a cold karoo winter's evening but the room was equipped with a heater, electric blankets and underfloor heating in the bathroom so it was most comfortable. Breakfast, served by Annabelle and Allan was delicious. All COVID protocols are in place and we felt quite safe. we will definitely be back to try out the fishing. Thanks Allan and Annabelle for your friendly hospitality.

Very comfortable accommodation and great food. We chose to eat at there on-site restaurant and it was a real treat with every dish being delicious. Alan is a wonderful fishing guide and my son enjoyed an interesting morning out and caught a large trout. Great attention to detail from the hosts and nice to see improvements are always being made to the rooms.

We really enjoyed our stay with Alan and Annabelle. The self-catering accommodation is clean and neat, and equipped with everything you need. The guided day of fly fishing was very enjoyable, with expert teaching for 2 beginners. Alan is a wealth of interesting and useful information, and made sure we had a successful day out. Highly recommended!

We stayed for 3 nights at Angler and Antelope Guesthouse. The room was luxurious and the bathroom new and well appointed. Anabelle's cooking was a feast 3 nights in a row. Alan is not only an excellent fly fishing guide but a well of information on this historic town. Thanks for your hospitality - we hope to visit again soon.
