Great b&b with stunning hilltop views of overlooking the knysnar lagoon. Rooms were large and comfortable - and very quiet. Bathroom was spacious. Breakfast was lovely with an amazing view. Staff was very polite and helpful.

Spent 1 night here whilst driving the Garden Route. A beautiful property. Our room was stunning and had a fantastic view across the lagoon and out to the Heads. An excellent welcome and a great breakfast

I don't think the pictures on their website do the rooms of this place justice. My husband and I were travelling with my parents and we both had the 2 rooms on the top floor which gave us each a fantastic view over the Knysna lagoon and the heads. The rooms and en suite bathrooms were extreamly spacious and very... More

Spent three nights here during the Oyster Festival.The view of Knysna from the Blue Oyster is beautiful. Vanessa has paid attention to detail in all aspects to her B&B,she and her staff are friendly and helpful. Would I recommend this place to any traveller...most definitely.

The view from our room (Mykonos) was so spectacular we had little desire to go out and explore Knysna! We had a great stay at Blue Oyster, it had a homely, friendly feel and more than ample facilities for a super comfortable stay. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else next year when we're back for the festival.
