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.

It always makes you feel great, when you are given a personal service. We were celebrating a special day and the owner knew about it. Since we were coming from Dubai, she wasn't sure if we drink alcohol, so she kept a bottle of a non alcoholic drink with her compliments. But once we reached she asked us and gave... More

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

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
