Cozy hotel with a beautiful view of the lagoon. Restaurants at a few kilometers at Knysna waterfrond. Essential vehicle or taxi to get to the hotel. Very nice breakfast choice sweet or salty on request with a view of the lagoon.

Comfortable rooms, accommodative to additional requests and made us feel at home...away from home. Stunning views of the famous Two Heads from our bedrooms making every morning and sunset and very special occasion and one to remember for many moons to come. Thank you very much.

Excellent service by the staff and the house owner. Our room was very clean and nice with a big bathroom in connection. The room had a wonderful view over Knysna (as all the room seems to have in the house).

Blue Oyster B&B is an excellent place to stay in Knysna. The view you see from here is magic! It lies on the top of mountain just facing the heads in the distance, with the whole city in sight, the waterfront, the blue inner sea, and the night view. All you see from here is so beautiful! The facilities are...

The Blue Oyster is under new management and they are trying hard to update the place, which it desperately needed. However, this also meant we he contractors right outside our bathroom window for a few days which is not ideal. The B&B has a great view of the lagoon and our host was incredibly accommodating and kind. Breakfast was good....

Brilliant views over the whole Knysna lagoon from both our room and the breakfast area (which was excellent too). The room was very spacious and clean with all amenities expected and a lovely balcony, and staff were also very friendly and helpful. Couldn't recommend higher.
