"Overall, Antbear is a nice guest house to enjoy a peaceful time away. Although Andrew and Connie were away for the weekend, the staff were accommodating and quite hospitable. I did think that the guest house was a bit overpriced given that it lacks the facilities and location of other resorts in the 'Berg' but carries the same price tag."


"Ideal Drakensberg retreat"

It is easier to reach/find than one wold think, and the perfect location to tour the central Drakensberg or the Midlands Meander."


"Two nights was not enough"

"Wow. We stayed at the Antbear Guesthouse for two wonderful nights. We could not have been made more welcome by the friendly hosts.

"Wow. We stayed at the Antbear Guesthouse for two wonderful nights. We could not have been made more welcome by the friendly hosts. This is the kind of guesthouse where you want to unpack your bags and never leave. Everything about our stay was first class. Our rooms were a delight and full of interesting handmade wooden furniture and fixings as well as extremely well equipped. The food, service and company were fabulous. The setting is ideal for exploring this part of South Africa and we were given plenty of advice and ideas for places to visit. We would have no hesitation in recommending this guesthouse to others."


"Superb Weekend at ANTSBEAR Lodge"

"Superb accommodation, staff, location and views. The most friendly and professional chief we have met for the last decade. Easy access to all attractions in the Central Berg. Safe and quiet. Even the bass was waiting in the local unspoiled dam.
Many thanks for your hospitality !!!
WE WILL BE..."

"Value for money"

(South Africa) Emmi | 14 February 2018

"I enjoyed my stay at the lodge. It was situated in a secluded area which was nice because we got privacy. The surrounding atmosphere was peaceful. The view was beautiful. It was nice to be near the dams and springs. It was clean and tidy. Everything we needed was available. The room was comfortable...."

"I enjoyed my stay at the lodge. It was situated in a secluded area which was nice because we got privacy. The surrounding atmosphere was peaceful. The view was beautiful. It was nice to be near the dams and springs. It was clean and tidy. Everything we needed was available. The room was comfortable. I just didn't like the fact that my partner and I received 2 single beds instead of 1 king size as advertised. Never the less we enjoyed our stay. The friendliness of the staff was great and so was the service. I would go back again and recommend it to others. "


"Wonderful Place - Friendly Staff"

(Germany) Wolfgang | 5 March 2017

"A wonderful, peaceful and quiet place. A lot of possibilities to hike. Very familiar. If you like to holiday in the nature, it is a good choice.
We had bad weather so the streets were absolutely muddy. It would be better if we had a 4-wheel-drive car."


"Excellent Getaway"

(South Africa) anonymous | 5 December 2016

"Very friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful scenery and very relaxing. "


"Idyllic spot"

(United Kingdom) Richard & Maire Warwick | 29 November 2007

"Excellent accommodation and food in a stunning location. Friendly welcome and a really nice atmosphere. We met some lovely people as everyone (including the owners, Andrew and Conny) eats together. We could have done with a 4 X 4 as the track to the property was rather hair-raising in wet weather! W..."

"Excellent accommodation and food in a stunning location. Friendly welcome and a really nice atmosphere. We met some lovely people as everyone (including the owners, Andrew and Conny) eats together. We could have done with a 4 X 4 as the track to the property was rather hair-raising in wet weather! Would certainly recommend Antbear to anyone - we would love to have stayed longer."
