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.

Judith is the new owner, and we were among her first guests. Our stay of eleven nights was very pleasant. Judith went out of her way to make us feel at home, nothing was too much trouble. The room was spotless and comfortable, and the view stunning. A car is needed as the walk back from town is all uphill...

We spent only one night there, but it was fantastic! The B&B is located a bit higher and outside Knysna, but the way is described very well with signs. Because of the high location, the view is spectacular. The house is small and lovely with only few bedrooms, which gives a familar atmosphere. When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed...

Our recent stay was a real joy. High on the hill it gave a good view over Knysna inlet. Our room was a good size and spotless. Breakfast was excellent and the host was always at hand to give advice and information. Would certainly stay there again.

Stayed at this wonderful B & B on a recent trip to the Garden Route. There are spectacular views of Knysna the lagoon harbour and bay. Judith is the new owner and she is an exceptionally warm and friendly person. Breakfast was fabulous all freshly cooked. At the moment there are only 4 bedrooms all with beautiful sea views. Two...

Dear Vanessa, We enjoyed our holiday also because of your "what to do today" suggestions. Also thanks to the friendly employees, serving an excellent breakfast. We did not complain about the only room with bathroom on the gangway. However Tip: Provide 2 bathrobes for these guests.

Having travelled extensively in SA, USA and Europe, the Blue Oyster B&B is definitely top class and we would stay there again anytime. The rooms are large and tastefully furnished and the view over Knysna Bay is breathtaking. We also much appreciated that dinner reservations were made for us in two excellent local Restaurants. Top service.

Stayed 3 nights at beginning of February. We were made very welcome by Vanessa and her team, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was probably one of the biggest rooms we've stayed in. Bathroom was bigger than many bedrooms we've stayed in, including hotels ! We've loved our terrace which had great views. Lovely pool area. Relaxed and friendly...
