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

Welcome and hospitality at Blue Oyster matched the superb house we stayed in! Incredible space! Light, spacious and airy with so many areas to sit and relax and take in phenomenal views! Bedroom perfect with spacious balcony and huge bathroom! We thought Blue Oyster would be good but our stay proved beyond expectation! Thank you!

Very accommodating as we were due to arrive after 6pm but caught up on some time. Very spacious rooms and lovely views over the bay. Going into town was downhill all the way and about a R60 taxi drive back. Lovely breakfast in a room with a great view. Private parking and good wifi. Very comfortable beds.

Having stayed for only 1 night in 2013, I vowed to return with my wife so she could experience this beautiful place. So at the end of November 2014, I did just that! This time we spent 4 nights in the luxurious upper level suite. It was fantastic. The views from every room in the B&B have spectacular views over... More
