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...

We spent 5 nights at this lovely guest house in February this year. We had passed through Knysna on a previous trip and wanted to return and explore. The accommodation is great and the views amazing. Vanessa was most helpful when planning our days and Charmaine served delicious breakfasts. Very friendly staff - Highly recommended

We recently stayed 4 nights at the Blue Oyster. Views from our room were amazing over the lagoon. Everything was perfectly spotless. Welcome letter and little personal touches to the room made us feel welcome. Charmaine, Vanessa and Mercene were perfect hostesses with lots of good tips for our stay. Went to Dry Dock, 34 South and Paddle Steamer -...

What a View! We had the Hydra room with direct view on the lagoon! The owner was very helpful and recommended a boat trip on the lagoon and some restaurants. We opted for "34° South" which was a really good choice. Breakfast was excellent, the room was very clean and spacious. We were greeted personally by a letter and nicely...

The view from our room and the rest of the guesthouse is brilliant. The rooms are decorated basically, and are smaller than other places I stayed, but they are clean and well presented. I also found the place pretty difficult to find (I think this was the only place out of 10 that we stayed in that didn't email us...

We spent 2 nights at the Blue Oyster B&B during our recent visit to South Africa and would highly recommend this exceptional guesthouse. The rooms are spotlessly clean and more spacious than you would find at many hotels that charge far more. The small personal touches such as the provision of an honesty bar and a bedtime chocolate really mark...
