We had a nice 2 night stay at the Blue Oyster B&B. The rooms on the top floor have a great view over the Knysna bay. Continental breakfast was good and service was very friendly. We recommend Blue Oyster B&B.

Blue Oyster is a very good B & B with beautiful views of Knysna heads and we enjoyed a very good breakfast looking out high over Knysna. Judith is a very friendly lady and we enjoyed our stay of 3 days.

The Blueoyster sits on a hill overlooking Knysna- it's absolutely stunning. We were fornuate to have the room at the top of the B&B with a balcony a view, but this doesn't matter because the breakfast room and communal area has large windows for you to enjoy the sites. Judith, the owner was a great help and full of warmth...

You will be assured of a warm welcome and be stunned by the view. Judith is a brilliant hostess and nothing is too much trouble for her to ensure your stay is perfect. The pool area is relaxing and comfortable. The drive to the Waterfront takes about 5 minutes. Advise booking restaurants in advance

Judith has recently taken over this property, which overlooks Knysna. You certainly need a car or taxi as I would not fancy walking with luggage from the seafront! The rooms are comfortable and the view is absolutely stunning over the bay and the Heads. There is a breakfast bar in the window overlooking the Knysna scene. Fabulous. The property is...

We stayed at Blue Oyster for 3 nights during our visit to Knysna. The rooms are elegantly designed and it feels like a mini-resort, up on the hill, with scenic views of the town and the lagoon. Judith the owner of the property was extremely kind to help us with suggestions to explore. My wife was sick for a night...
