We had a very happy weekend with our family, views were spectacular, service was great, nothing was too much trouble. The house was well equipped, attention to detail, decorated beautifully and very comfortable!

It's not for nothing that the Oyster Box is called the best hotel in Durban. The setting is simply spectacular! All staff (down to porters and cleaners) are incredibly friendly and happy to drop everything and help you should you get lost - if it's your first time, take good note of how to get to your room as it can be a bit tricky at times. The rooms have everything you could ask for, are clean and modern. Overall, the entire hotel has a distinct throw-back feel to olden times to it (in a fun way). The breakfast menu and buffet is great (including, of course, fresh oysters). Definitely a place to go back to!

Still the very best, as are all The Oyster Collection properties. This crowd know what they're doing. The Oyster Box delivers. Most wonderful weekend enjoying stylish luxury and magnificent views, doesn't get better than that.

Wow how fortunate was I to stay in The Oyster Box, spectacular and breathtaking views of the ocean and river ... felt very safe and took long walks on the beach and soaked in the views. The host team and staff is fantastic and very friendly and helpful and makes you feel like your home away from home. Enjoyed long hours soaking in the wonderful bath in the lux suite (downstairs) and the views from the bed is spectacular, nice in the morning enjoying a coffee and watching the sun come up. The food is also fantastic and the fridge is well stocked. Would highly recommend this place for a stop over or a week stay. Dalene

My wife and I spent two nights in the upstairs suite after a business trip to PE. The accommodation was excellent, although the layout took a little getting used to - one has to go through a common kitchen area shared with the downstairs suite to reach the stairs and there is a shared common lounge/pool area downstairs. The layout is perhaps more suited to a family renting both suites. Nevertheless, we saw (and heard) little of our downstairs neighbours, so this was not a problem. Both suites offer outstanding sea/river views. The upstairs suite had a private lounge and large deck area. The room and bed were extremely comfortable and the bathroom boasted an enormous rain shower. Free wifi was available. The DSTV channel selection was the usual rather limited bouquet. Our only criticism was that it would have been nice to have a small fridge upstairs. A coffee machine was provided with fresh biscuits every day.
Breakfasts were outstanding with a great menu selection and could be customised by the very friendly chef.
Parking is provided in a double garage and security is excellent.

Room Tip: On balance, I would suggest requesting the upstairs suite.
