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.

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...

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!!
