Led by General Manager Roberto Rosa, The Oyster Box is a family of passionate people, with a warm, inclusive ethos that embraces every aspect of our guests’ experiences. We are proud to be a part of the family-owned and run Red Carnation Hotel Collection and our hotel’s celebrated heritage, and we are committed to giving the very best in all we do. Our guests return time and again, often to be greeted by our honorary 'guests relations manager' Skabenga, the hotel’s famous cat and a social media phenomenon.
A love story
Red Carnation’s story begins at The Oyster Box. This is where our founders, Stanley and Beatrice Tollman, had their very first date, and where Stanley dared to dream that maybe one day they could own a hotel as cherished and famous as this. Dreams can come true, and their lives came full circle when, on the date of their 60th wedding anniversary, this national treasure became part of the Red Carnation family.
