On arrival we were greeted by Vanessa and shown to our room with a magnificent view ! What a view of the bay and the heads - even at night. We stayed for two nights and wish we could have stayed longer. Vanessa is not just the Inn Keeper but very knowledgeable about Knysna and surrounds. What to do, points... More

Excellent Hospitality! We stayed three nights and had a wonderful time! Vanessa is a great host and very helpful with tips for excursions and restaurants; also the staff in charge of cooking did a marvellous job for breakfast.

Excellent Hospitality. Short stay but will go back. Booked one night after the Karoo2Coast Bicycle race, well in advance. No hassle on arrival. Our room was clean and the location good. The view is excellent and the facility is well located. Vanessa is indeed a friendly host.

When we booked the Blue Oyster, whichever site we used to do so didn't prepare us for the fantastic view that it has - I am sure it probably said 'view of the water' or similar, but it didn't emphasise how wonderful this is. Then along with the view, add in the comfort, the excellent room size, and everything else,... More

We spent one night at the Blue Oyster and I wish we stayed abit longer. The room (which was a free upgrade) was large, with a massive bathroom and beatiful views from the balcony perched high above knysna. Everything was clean and tidy and in good condition. Everything from the breakfast, honesty bar and service was great. I would definitely... More

A lovely B&B situated high up on a hill in Knysna, with wonderful views across the lagoon to the Heads. Vanessa is a friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable host, with excellent advice about local attractions and restaurants. The bedrooms at the top were really large, with great bathrooms (and the 5 star views). Would definitely stay there again.
