This is a pretty basic hotel but the river front facing rooms are as good as any 4 star hotel The pricing of the spacious rooms is outstanding The restuarant attached to the hotel serves the best seafood at incredibly reasonable prices and this alone is worth a visit. Overall it is outstanding vaue

Hotel is on the river but being alongside a rather noisy 24/7 fish factory is a little disappointing.Staff were friendly and food was good and reasonable.

We did not have a very good experience staying at Laaiplek Hotel.1. The oil heater provided did not work and it was very very cold. Even after complaining to the lady at reception it was still not replaced2. The toiler was leaking water and there was always water on the floor of the bathroom.

Accommodating and friendly staff.Great value for money room. We enjoyed the restaurant meal. The highlight was the spectacular cormarant display on their return flight from the sea in their thousands.This is seriously under marketed eco-tourism.We watched them the river mouth and from the hotel.
