      Business tripA most disappointing stay. This was my third stay here. I was sharing a twin room with my colleague. On arrival into the room there was a mini loaf of stale banana bread on the desk. The gesture was lovely however don’t put out stale cake. The bath did not drain when I showered it flooded to ankle deep. After turn down the blinds had not been closed and when we attempted to close them the shutters where jammed open, eventually we managed to get the very tattered blinds down. None of the dimmers worked in the room There were three warm down-lights and the rest bright white LED’s No bed side lights One switch for the entire room including bathroom and all lights are on or off. At check out receptionist was very helpful and explained there are a couple of rooms left to be upgraded which are in desperate need of maintenance and we got one. What a pity, the hotel was not even full. Even the Agoda special does not compensate for this standard of room.

      Dear Ms Hilcove, We cannot even begin to say how very sorry we are that you had such a disappointing stay and that the hotel did not live up to your expectations, from the arrival courtesies to the shower draining and the blinds in the room, parried with the lighting frustrations. We can assure you that we take feedback like this very seriously and we implement corrective training with the entire team to ensure we continually improve. All the above is a far cry from the high level of service and standards we have become renowned for, and we would sincerely appreciate the opportunity to make this up to you. We would be most grateful if you would contact us, as we unfortunately don’t have your contact details, so that we can arrange something for you as a token of our heartfelt apologies and to regain your faith in our service delivery. We hope to hear from you, and please accept our deepest apologies once again. Tyler Liebenberg Deputy General Manager

      It’s my favorite escape destination, when I need a break. My kids love being spoiled at the oyster box and enjoy swimming. I enjoy the tranquil views of the Indian Ocean and ionic light house. The staff are exceptional and efficient, special thanks to sakhile from concierge, sanele from reception, Sita day and thabiso from the pool deck, jonathan from resturant and the ever so helpful Justin Botha ( guest relations) who always make our stays so amazing. Food is exceptional and they cater for all my kids fussy pallets. Love love love oyster box

      We enormously enjoyed our stay at the Oyster Box, although with data roaming down in Natal (yet again) and our GPS did not function properly, it took us a while to find. Very little to find any fault with and the staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive, the food excellent and the view spectacular.

      Pure Colonial Elegance”

      Perfect location, friendly and efficient staff, sumptuous linens and to die for views. Luxury hotels always come with risk when you travel with a toddler - you are either welcomed and comfortable or made to feel like a smudge on their perfection. I’m pleased to say Oyster Box is most definitely the former! We were travelling with my mother and without requesting it, we were given rooms next door to each other which was thoughtful. The staff from the security at the gatehouse, to front door and front desk staff and all the wonderful serving staff at the restaurant pool were friendly, engaging with my daughter and always helpful. Whilst we couldn’t eat at the Fine Dining restaurant with our daughter, the food at the Ocean Terrace was varied, delicious and well priced but the central restaurant district is less than a 5 minute walk away so there is plenty of choice. Our rooms were perfect, at the edge of the property with spectacular views of the beach, sea and lighthouse.

      Unforgettable Anniversary”

      From the moment we arrived, the Oyster Box Team transported us to another world. Each day started with a breakfast feast after an early walk on the promenade. We cannot start to describe the fine dining in the Grill Room; you have to experience the True Legend yourself! The Team helped us celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary holiday by showering us with congratulatory cards, gifts and desserts. We certainly selected the best destination to unwind and relax; be it next to the pool, in the cinema room or with the breathtaking views from the Lighthouse Bar.

      Location great, staff friendly.”

      Room was spacious but fixtures were worn, loose handles on cupboards. Ants in the bathroom...... Great location on the beach and the food was great. Accomodation is overpriced for what you get, you get better value for money in continental Europe.

      From the minute you walk in the door to be greeted by William the doorman to the moment you leave, the personal service you receive is second to none. The colonial atmosphere and ambiance, the amazing sea- side and lighthouse views and the standard of food are all first rate.

      lovely place, but disappointing food”

      This was our second visit - probably our last. The breakfast had definitely deteriorated: mediocre quality pastries & bread and badly presnted hot dishes, including VERY cold bacon. And for our anniversary dinner in the grill all four of us selected chateaubriand which was tough and rather tasteless. My ceviche starter was also lacklustre. All in all a great let down as our previous visit was superb. Maybe it was because they were very full for the bank holiday weekend.
