the breakfast buffet has everything you could possibly want. The service and food were excellent. The views are breath taking. Pricey for locals, yes, but we had a great morning. Our waiter Siyabonga was an absolute joy!
Nothing says special occasion quite as wonderfully well as a visit to The Oyster Box. My daughter’s birthday was celebrated with an Oyster Box breakfast. The buffet is of course filled with anything and everything that one could wish for. Many things remain unchanged like the smoked salmon, fresh oysters and the enormous round of Parmesan cheese. This visit I discovered the fresh fruit and vegetable juice station. I sampled the delicious beetroot juice. The staff are professional, friendly and attentive.
Simply the best!!
Ignore the fact that this grand old lady is looking a little careworn outside, inside it is magnificent and elegant. But what makes this such an amazing experience are the wonderful staff, who are engaging, thoughtful and really spoil you. As returning visitors, everyone addressed us by name and gave us little treats along the way to make us feel even more cherished. Of special note, Leon the musician in the Oyster Bar is sublime, and we wish he was there every night! We mentioned a particular song we like and it made our holiday when, the next night, he had learned it and incorporated into his set! We want to give special mention to Siyabonga who works at the pool bar. As we were staying in lovely room 4 with direct access onto the front lawn, he learned on day 1 what we liked in terms of the layout of our sunbeds and, everyday for 2 weeks, he had already set these out for us before we came outside. He was incredibly attentive and, as a young man who is also studying to be a teacher and supporting his widowed mother, he is an absolutely credit to the hotel. He also brought us our lunchtime bottle of fizz and afternoon cocktails without asking! We also want to mention our breakfast service (we aren't great fans of buffets or busy-ness) but the lovely staff (Charlie, Danny and Sebastian in particular) quickly got to know where our favourite table was and laid this out ready for us, always knowing what we wanted to eat. Sebastian even went to get our toast so we didn't have to fight through the waiting diners! This was our second 2-week trip (and 3rd visit) and, despite lying on our sunbeds pondering where we could go for our winter sun in 2021, we couldn't think of anywhere more perfect than The Oyster Box for ambience, style, friendliness and services. Thank you everyone, see you in January 2021!
This is a bit like paradise!
From check in to check out this place is faultless. I thought I’d stayed in some great hotels but this one beats them hands down. Nothing is too much from fast and efficient service to great food. They even have kippers for breakfast. The pools are wonderful and the views superb. If you wanted to see the spectrum of hotels start at a hotel at a famous site near Wells in the UK to this hotel in South Africa and you will see the journey from hell to heaven. Do not miss it! It rocks
just the best hotel
from the moment we arrived, to be offered a cold drink and a towel to wipe our hands we knew we were in for a treat. We were given a garden cottage with its own plunge pool and to say everything about this hotel is special is an understatement. The staff were amazing, the hotel itself was beautifully set up with a delicious brekky on the terrace overlooking the lighthouse and the ocean. It was clean, comfortable with fantastic service. we will definitely return. outstanding in every way
