This hotel can only be rated excellent. The attention to detail in every possible aspect is nothing short of spectacular. The manner in which the service is delivered is the special component of this hotel that differentiates it from others. The Oyster Box staff compliment has exceeded expectations. Every member of staff goes beyond the call of duty for their guests. The special and extra finishing touches with service delivery will impact your stay in the most unbelievably positive way. Presentation and representation of the hotel, its people and everything it has to offer is superb. Our conference held at the Oyster Box Hotel was successfully implemented and I know that without the input from the Oyster Box Team the event would not have been the success that it was. One truly has to experience the hotel in order to truly understand that service service service service is key and service is what they do really well in the most beautiful surroundings. The venue and the staff make it work seamlessly. I will not be surprised if we hold our event at the Oyster Box hotel again next year as I believe this experience is going to be hard to beat. As beautiful as the hotel is as well as its location (would you ever think you'd be able to conference and workshop in the most spectacular conference room - facing the ocean) it’s the way in which you are treated and the overall experience that is makes all the difference. It was special and as some of the delegates were departing from the hotel (some of whom have travelled to the most prestigious hotels around the world) they mentioned that they were sad to leave the hotel - normally they are not sad leaving a hotel but this time they were sad. It's the experience, the people and the service that contribute to the beauty of your stay. If you're looking for a memorable experience - one that leaves a wonderful memory in your heart - then take the time, save the money and invest it in an experience that you will never forget - Stay at the hotel - not only is it ideal for conferencing but the hotel can offer so much more-restful and refreshing getaways, etc. Such an amazing place, with amazing facilities, and most of all - amazing people. You simply cannot go wrong at the Oyster Box. The decor, delacies and the details associated with this hotel are first class infact I take it further to say that The Oyster Box is a hotel which is in a CLASS of its own. So inspired to read the story associated with the history and the founders - so proud to be South African when you see the perfection, excellence and warmth this hotel has to offer. Thank you Oyster Box Hotel team and Thank you Mrs Tollman.
