We stayed 5 nights in Blue Oyster and had the most fabulous room and with balcony and superb view over the lagoon. Vanessa and the staff at the Guest House could not have been more helpful or friendly and made every part of our stay memorable. Breakfasts were excellent and freshly cooked. We certainly hope to be back some day.

This is a really good example of a B&B. Location is really super. The breakfast is very complete and a strong starter for a wonderfull day in Knysna and surroundings. Of course Vanessa is a helpfull and friendly host. The room was an equivalent of the view.

Blue Oyster B&B is a wonderful property at the top of a hill overlooking the Knysna lagoon. The place is tastefully decorated and Vanessa is a wonderful host. She gave us lots of recommendations on restaurants, things to do in the area and was always warm and helpful. The breakfast is wonderful and very filling and the views from the... More

We stayed in the Attica room and was pleased with the view and cleanliness. However, the only drawback was that the bathroom was across the hall which was slightly inconvenient. Host was delightful and amenities were great.

We stayed in a very spacious suite which had a fabulous view over Knysna and the lagoon. The manager was very helpful and organised dinner reservations and transports. Breakfast was very good. Lovely place to stay in Knysna, but you will have to use your car or a taxi to get downtown.

Small B&B on the top of the hill overlooking the Heads at Knysna. Outstanding views of the lagoon from the our room. The room was excellent; very large with en suite bathroom and walk in closet, also balcony with the great views. The house is a little dated but very well presented. The owner Vanessa provided excellent service with advice... More

The B&B has some amazing views! it is located on the top of the hill where you can appreciate the whole lagune. On the not so bright side the house is old and the room had the smell from grandmas house, it really needs an update. Breakfast was OK.

Beautiful views over the lagoon from our room, and also from our breakfast table. This is a very well presented B&B, with a spacious and comfortable communal lounge. Our room was absolutely fine with a particularly well appointed en-suite. The pool area and garden are well tended and very nice to use on a hot day. The harbour area with... More
