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.

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!!

The view was fantastic and the location excellent for exploring the area. Although limited, the breakfast was well prepared and adequate. The staff were friendly and helpful. Despite some rain a very enjoyable stay.

We spent 4 days in Knysna as a young couple, already our third time in Blue Oyster; great location with view over the lagoon and only three minutes drive to Knysna waterfront; the new owner welcomed us as friendly as the previous one. Diverse breakfast selection.

What a gem. In central Knysna with views to die for, stunning suites with balconies, great breakfast. The new owner Judith continues keeping the standards up. Can recommend to anyone who wants to see Knysna from the best viewing point.
