We've stayed for 3 nights and the location of the hotel is fantastic. The first morning we even saw a beautiful rainbow in the lagoon. Our room is the best one which is value for money. We could see the Heads in the balcony. We enjoyed the breakfast so much with the great view. Last day, they even prepared a...

Once we found the Blue Oyster (at the top of the hillside) we were well pleased. I think we had the best room in the house which could not be faulted. Service by Vanessa and Charmaine was efficient, charming and helpful. I recommend this small hotel to couples; whether its location and outside space is good for families I'm not...

I would highly recommend the Blue Oyster to anybody visiting Knysna. Vanessa and Charmaine are excellent hosts and very knowledgeable on what to see and where to eat. The room that I shared with my daughter was very spacious and what a fantastic view! Everything was just wonderful and it was the highlight of my trip.

We stayed for 4 nights here, and being our first trip to Knysna we were not disappointed. The luxury rooms we booked( we booked both with the other couple with us even having space for a camper cot for there 10 month year old) were spacious and lovely. The best thing more so than the fact that the rooms had...
