Blue Oyster
The staff were super friendly and our hostess went out of her way to accommodate us. As we were participating in a multi-day sport event we could not have breakfast every morning but our hostess made sure we were looked after on our return. Our race kit after a very muddy 80km cycle were also washed free of charge! :)

Beautiful BB, good service, very helpfull hostes
Our room was wonderful with a stunning view over the lagoon and a large balcony. The bathroom was luxerious. Breakfastroom, lounges and garden with pool all bore witness of the owners very good taste. Unfortunatly one window of our car was smashed downtown but Janine, hostess at Blue Oyster, immediatly offered to help us, when she heard about i. And so she did with every step of the process including contacts with the police and the car rental firm. Thanks to her efficient help the whole thing went smoothly and quickly. After we had left she kept contact with the police to make sure we would get our casenummer as quickly as possible. She did far more then could be expected of her and we could leave Knysna in a good mode-only regretting we had no time to stay longer at Blue Oyster.

Great Stay with Great Views!
The owner was great and very friendly. The property is located in a very quiet and safe residencial area of the town. The bedroom was huge with a separate walk-in wardrobe and big corner bath, but even better was the private balcony with amazing views over Knysna. The breakfast was outstanding and served in the dining area that also had fantastic views over the town. Nice people, great place, lovely stay! Recommend!
