The Oyster Box

A recent guest to The Oyster Box Hotel was so impressed by his stay that he wrote this poem about it and shared it with us. Thank you Lenn Fenn, we hope to welcome you back soon maybe for some more afternoon tea!

Our visit to The Oyster Box Hotel

We arrive at the hotel on our tour bus
The doorman is waiting to greet all of us

The reception’s busy, but after a while
We are given our room numbers with a big smile

We are serve fruit juice or a glass of wine
Enjoy your stay with us and have a good time

Our room is well furnished and looks over the sea
With apples and coffee and a nice cup of tea

The ocean terrace is great for a snack
It’s there that we join the rest of the pack

The food is delicious and served with a smile
We are all full up so it should do for a while

Then the private cinema is a place we should go
To have our own special movie show

It’ sweets and popcorn again we are fed
Before watching a film called “Waking Ned”

It’s prawns and curry, again we eat
By now it’s becoming quite a feat

We are invited to the bar to have a drink
Here’s cheers to the management as glasses clink

In our room, before we lay down our head
Are all these things layed-out on the bed

A chocolate, a peak and a cap for me
As well as more cakes from the high tea

At breakfast time we do our own thing
The buffet’s laid out and is fit for a king

We are given a tour with Wayne at the head
We put on our aprons which are all coloured red

The staff are all smiling and happy to be there
They say we are looked after by Mr Coetzer

We are full up from breakfasts give lunch a miss
Just relax round the pool, it’s heavenly bliss

High tea is next which is in the Palm Court
With sandwiches and cakes we cannot fault

Then we are served with our fish and chips
This will put another inch around our hips

It’s back to the movies. We are so full
But have sweets and popcorn while watching “Sky Fall”

It’s down to breakfast on our last day
See smiling faces, wish we could stay

In our room we begin to pack
Telling ourselves we are sure to come back

Waiting at the door is Wayne and the cat
Wishing us all that we must soon come back

We are given a nougat and a CD too
Waving us good bye and saying toodaloo

Whenever we visit Umhlanga Rocks
The best place to go is “The Oyster Box”
