We stayed for 4 nights here, and being our first trip to Knysna we were not disappointed. The luxury rooms we booked( we booked both with the other couple with us even having space for a camper cot for there 10 month year old) were spacious and lovely. The best thing more so than the fact that the rooms had...

We stayed 3 nights at the Blue Oyster and experienced a wonderfull stay not at least caused by the hospitality offered by Vanessa and Charmaine. They did all possible to inform us about the ins and outs of Knysna, arranging restaurants (even arranging sole, which was not on the menu of a specific restaurant) all because it was Elly's birthday....

My wife and I spent 1 night in Knysna at the Blue Oyster B&B and thought it was great. We were actually the only guests (there are only 3 rooms) and we had the run of the entire place. Vanessa helped us settle in - she upgraded us to the luxury room since it was empty - and got us...

Stayed three nights in knysna and thought we would be hard pressed to have found better accommodation than Blue Oyster. Super location with views to really appreciate. Felt really welcomed with lots of good advice on where to go and what to do. Super breakfast and service. Would not hesitate to return.

We two stayed one night in Knysna and were very pleased with Blue Oyster. Our room was very comfortable and had an amazing view. Breakfast was very good and Vanessa had good suggestions for restaurants and activities. We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed at the Blue Oyster for one night and enjoyed every minute. The views are fantastic and the room so comfy with a balcony that overlooks the town and the heads. Charmaine and Vanessa, the owner, made our stay a memorable one.

Stayed for two nights in February. Came here after a long drive and a nice bottle of sparkling wine waited for us. Awesome view to the lagoon. Really helpful staff. We received really good tips from Vanessa. Delicious breakfest and really nice music played in the breakfest hall!

We had two nights at the Blue Oyster and it offered a lovely, immaculately clean, large room, bathroom and balcony with great views across the town and seafront. The location means that you will tend to drive or get a taxi to and from town as the hills are quite steep. Great facilities in the house and garden help make...
