Our family stayed at the iconic Oyster Box and couple of years ago and were very much looking forward to our trip to sunny Durban and the new and improved hotel. I'm very happy to report that we all had a wonderful time.
The complete overhaul has done justice to the picturesque Indian ocean coastline and what's more impressive is that it seems to have lost none of it's status an historic iconic gem, which can't be easy with modern day furnishings, although I'm no expert.
The hugely impressive investment is nowhere more apparent than in it's staff, who's enthusiatic, energetic attitude and immaculate presentation made life so easy and reminds oneself of why we take holidays. It's great to see people enjoying and taking pride in their job.
I must confess, we had planned to eat out to save a little money as we had a long trip planned around SA and the room rates aren't exactly what they were 2 years ago, but spoiled ourself on the first night and ate in the hotel restaurant. Well.....let's just say, I'm no expert at the local Umhlanga cuisine either!!
I would recommed this hotel to anyone for almost any purpose. Well done *new* Oyster Box!
