Welcoming, friendly and very comfortable
Very friendly and comfortable stay. Judith and her team made us very welcome and looked after us to a very high standard. The views out over the bay are fantastic. Very good breakfast, we will return if we are back in this area shain

Great Property with Stunning Views
Very much enjoyed our stay at Blue Oyster. We felt welcomed from the moment we arrived. The room was very clean and comfortable with a very spacious bathroom. And the view was magnificent! Also enjoyed the breakfast and informative conversation with the owner and staff. Highly recommended!

Great views of Knysna
I stayed for 2 nights with my father and we had a wonderful stay at the Blue Oyster with comfortable beds and very clean room with an amazing view overlooking Knysna. The homemade breakfast were delicious with another amazing view of the Bay. The location is in a quiet neighbourhood at the top of a hill but it breathtaking views is worth effort. It's less than a five minute drive to the Waterfront where's plenty of restaurants, coffee shops and bars. Judith (owner) recommended a great seafood restaurant and the staff were helpful at all times.

Brilliant time at the Blue Oyster
We really enjoyed our stay at the Blue Oyster. Judith is so friendly and welcoming and she constantly goes the extra mile to make sure her guests have the best possible time whether it's lending you a plug adaptor or beach parasol or bringing you a jug of iced sparkling water to the pool. She has a great team and Ntombi greets you at breakfast every morning with a big smile and advice on places to go around Knysna. Breakfast is delicious and includes fresh fruit and a hot breakfast with eggs cooked however you choose. The view from the breakfast room (and all around the Blue Oyster including our bedroom) is stunning. Everywhere is tastefully decorated and immaculate. We loved our room and balcony and were so well looked after that we extended our 3 night stay to 5 nights. I would definitely recommend the Blue Oyster - it's a lovely place with exceptional service.

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!
