Judith is a wonderful host with a great story of how the family bought the BnB just over 6 months ago. She has taking to hosting like a duck to water. The breakfasts were great and we felt very at home. The view from the top of Knysna is amazing. The only negative was that the house was very cold... More

This was the second time we stayed at the Blue Oyster. I would like to complement them on their excellent service and hospitality. We felt so welcome and were treated as family. We will definitely visit again. The spectacular view of the Knysna lagoon, makes it a must to visit the Blue Oyster!!

The view was fantastic and the location excellent for exploring the area. Although limited, the breakfast was well prepared and adequate. The staff were friendly and helpful. Despite some rain a very enjoyable stay.

We spent 4 days in Knysna as a young couple, already our third time in Blue Oyster; great location with view over the lagoon and only three minutes drive to Knysna waterfront; the new owner welcomed us as friendly as the previous one. Diverse breakfast selection.

What a gem. In central Knysna with views to die for, stunning suites with balconies, great breakfast. The new owner Judith continues keeping the standards up. Can recommend to anyone who wants to see Knysna from the best viewing point.

Judith is the new owner, and we were among her first guests. Our stay of eleven nights was very pleasant. Judith went out of her way to make us feel at home, nothing was too much trouble. The room was spotless and comfortable, and the view stunning. A car is needed as the walk back from town is all uphill... More

We spent only one night there, but it was fantastic! The B&B is located a bit higher and outside Knysna, but the way is described very well with signs. Because of the high location, the view is spectacular. The house is small and lovely with only few bedrooms, which gives a familar atmosphere. When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed... More
