Our Greatest Love Story
Red Carnation Hotels is a love story that began over 60 years ago. On the 5th July 1952, Stanley Tollman invited our Founder & President Beatrice to join him for dinner in the most talked about hotel in Durban, The Oyster Box.

Located on the Umhlanga Rocks and originally opened as a cottage called the Oyster Lodge in 1863, The Oyster Box first opened as a hotel in 1952 and Stanley organised for the best table in the restaurant – number 5, which is still there to this day. Stanley invited Bea to try the hotel specialty – an oyster, upon tasting the oyster for the first time, Bea promptly spat it on the floor, this must have left a lasting impression on Stanley as they have been together ever since.
Our Greatest Love Story
Today the Red Carnation Hotel Collection proudly stands at 20 exceptional properties around the world, each unique and special. The Oyster Box remains at the heart of this love story and we are so proud that it is part of the hotel collection today and is recognised as the number one and most loved and cherished hotel in South Africa.

The Red Carnation Hotel Collection is lovingly named after the signature flower that Stanley Tollman always wears, and this symbol of hospitality is also worn by every member of the team and represents the passion and care that we have for our guests.

As one of 42 family-owned and run TTC travel brands, Red Carnation Hotels are proud to be celebrating 100 years of hospitality in 2020!
