My wife and I went there after getting married. Everything from the moments we walked in to the moment we walked out was just spot on. The place is very clean and neat, friendly staff and beautiful Kysna view. All the restaurants and activities that Vanessa recommended were spot on. We enjoyed the featherbed boat cruise and the Tapas menu. My wife want us to visit again sometimes next year.

Room Tip: Top rooms have nice view

We were really impressed with the Blue Oyster. Myself, my girlfriend and my parents stayed for two nights. The breakfast was our favourite of the holiday and Vanessa clearly wanted us to enjoy our stay. Visits to Plettenburg bay, the Knysna Elephants and Knysna itself are all well worth the stay. The bedrooms were immaculate and we really enjoyed chilling our in the lovely lounge area. The highlight of the accommodation is the amazing view over Knysna - simply fantastic. Would recommend!

My Self and My wife stayed here for 7 days over Easter. We absloutley loved our stay here.
From the minute we walked in to the minute we walked out we only got the best 6* service. Everything Vanessa recommended was spot on, from the day trips to the restaurants.
We stayed in the Mykonos room which was Immaculate and spacious with the most spectacular view over the Lagoon. We felt so comfortable that it was like home away from home with only one difference, The View from our Room, One of the most amazing views in the world...We Will definitely be back. Thank You Very Much Vanessa for your Hospitality...

Room Tip: definitely request the Mykonos Room. It is Grand and has the Most Amazing Views...

Roland and I were honored to spend some time at The Blue Oyster in Knysna...... we were doing a short trip from PE through to CT - we live in Canada, and it was the first visit for Roland to South Africa, and staying at the Blue Oyster just blew him away! the accommodation is fabulous, colorful, warm, romantic, and stylish, and as for the awesome yummy bathroom with garden view! ooh la la! we loved it, big-time! add some candles and a bottle of bubbly..... well, we leave the rest up to your imagination........

The views were exceptional, absolutely exceptional, and the sense of well being projected by Vanessa and Charmaine made everything that much more pleasureable, truly, a special word of thanks to Charmaine, she is a total gem and made our stay fantastic!

Great view, food, accommodation, exotic bath, and excellent management team - you cannot afford to miss out staying here at some time in your travels and we hope one day to return for another visit, next time we are in South Africa

Room Tip: The room with a view from bedroom and bathroom, of course!!!!

We stayed for one night at the blue oyster and out of several hundred B&B's I can say that this is the best I have ever stayed in. The room was huge with a massive bed & huge bathroom with big bath & shower. This would have been wow enough BUT the views of keys a were magnificent. The little touches like flower petals in the room & bedtime chocolates were lovely. The morning breakfast was also fab with the views of Knysna. Would totally recommend this guesthouse.
Thanks again Dennis & Marion

This is the best service i have once experienced in my life time so far, i had a nice time looking at the beauty of Knysna every minute you open a curtain. I was wowed by the service i got from Vanessa and she really helped me to understand the place and prepared nice breakfast pack for me and my wife as we left early from Kynsna.

Room Tip: make sure you car is well serviced to be able to see the Beauty of this place

We've stayed for 3 nights and the location of the hotel is fantastic. The first morning we even saw a beautiful rainbow in the lagoon. Our room is the best one which is value for money. We could see the Heads in the balcony.

We enjoyed the breakfast so much with the great view. Last day, they even prepared a delicious breakfast box as we left in the early morning. The parking place is safe.

It's very near to waterfront and other attractions. We recommend you and your family to stay here while you are in Knsyna.
