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 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.
