              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.

              We thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday night stay at Laaiplek in Velddrif.  The hotel is beautifully situated right on the Berg River with lawns down to the water.The staff were friendly and made us welcome and our room was well appointed with a view of the river.Being a Sunday the restaurant was extremely busy and difficult to get service but the food was good when it finally came.  They do not serve dinner on Sunday night so we ordered dessert as a takeaway to have in our room later.  Velddrif is very quaint with little rustic eateries along the river and all in all a great outing.

              Wander along the oldest road in Velddrif where time seems to stand still. Watch the tide come in while the local fisherman ply their trade in the age old way. Sip a cocktail at one of the restaurants or amble along and buy a piece of West Coast art...

              Five million years ago the Cape’s West Coast was very different from what it is today. A wide range of animals (now extinct) lived in riverine forests, wooded savannah, and ocean as well as on offshore islands. Phosphate mining operations at...
