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.

The hospitality was first-rate, as were the accommodations. The common areas are comfortable and inviting. Our room was spacious and impeccably clean (and had the same amazing view as the breakfast area). Delicious breakfast. Vanessa was very informative, and helped us find wonderful things to do while in the area. I would recommend Blue Oyster very highly!

Lovely B&B on the hillside above the Knysna lagoon with stunning views with a small pool in the quite back garden for relaxing. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated and the breakfast was individually prepared and served. Vanessa was really helpful about restaurants and our walking plans. Rcommended

We enjoyed our stay at Blue Oyster B&b. Our room was small and bathroom across the hallway, but it was very clean. Very good breakfast (good coffee!) with a lovely view. Vanessa informed us really well about where to go and what to do in Knysna.

There can't be many better views in the world than those enjoyed by visiting the Blue Oyster which has a marvellous position on top of the hill overlooking the Bay, the Heads to the sea, and the islands. This house is beautifully appointed with spacious, well furnished bedrooms, seating and dining areas along with lovely, restful gardens and pool having... More
