Lovely B&B in a great location situated high up on the hill overlooking the Knysna Heads and Lagoon. We were in one of the lower rooms but still had a great view. Load shedding was in place when we visited but they were very well set up with torches in the room and the corridors which made it very easy... More

We loved our time at the Blue Oyster in Knysna. The rooms have tremendous views of Knysna Bay, and we enjoyed our sundowners from the balcony. We were bumped up to a room on the top floor and it was tremendous, nice bathroom, great bed and wifi, but the balcony was a huge winner. Breakfasts served in a room with... More

Our stay at the Blue Oyster was unforgettable. I got engaged the week we stayed there and picking the Blue Oyster as our holiday destination was the best decision I have ever made. The service and accommodation was brilliant. Anybody thinking of staying in Knysna for their getaway shouldn't bother looking anywhere else. Trust me you will not be sorry.... More

Our stay at the Blue Oyster was incredible! The view was breathtaking and the accommodations were spotless and comfortable. The hospitality and kindness of Vanessa and her crew was superb...from the suggested dining at Sirocco right down to the impromptu muffin with a candle in it upon discovering that it was my birthday! It may be a Guest House, but... More

We stayed 2 nights at this wonderful Guest House. The room was large and comfortable with a balcony. Vanessa was lovely and friendly and left us a picnic breakfast the first morning as we were off early to ride the elephants. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and breakfast on our second morning was delicious. We easily walked into Knysna and caught... More

Having stayed here in 2012, I decided to try this fine establishment again. As before, the venue & service is outstanding and the owner & her team truly understand the essence of hospitality. Will definitely be back for the next vacation.

We had the luxury room which was huge and well worth the upgrade money. There was a balcony overlooking the lagoon. The manager was very helpful and had booked us into a restaurant as it was a Friday evening. The breakfast was also extensive. Slightly out of Knysna up the hill but definitely worth it for the views.
