Wow the top floor suite has the best view of the whole of the Knysna lagoon - the room had everything you needed even a scissors to cut your coffee sachets open! Judith was an excellent host and very friendly … I would love to come back …

My wife and I enjoyed the relaxed informal time at the Blue Oyster B&B. The room was neat and clean with a great view over the Knysna lagoon out to the heads. Beautiful. Judith and her staff were very friendly and helpful, even offering to book our outing for the day. I would certainly go back.

We loved our 3 nights here. Stunning, spacious rooms, that are tastefully furnished. Very comfortable beds! Absolutely gorgeous view of the bay. Friendly owner who offers a very yummy breakfast (the Omelette is to die for). All in all a great experience and beautiful B&B that I highly recommend.

This is a beautiful Mediterranean style villa (deservedly rated 4 star), positioned high on the ridge overlooking the picturesque Garden Route town of Knysna. The breathtaking views of the lagoon and the Knysna Heads force you to take snapshots from the room's balcony. The guesthouse is spotlessly clean, has comfortable mattresses and provides a full breakfast and provides a free parking area. Its proprietress, Judith, is a bubbly font of local information and advice. This hotel is reached by a switchback-laden route and I’m guessing it might be hard to find without using a GPS. If staying in Knysna, this is definitely a primary place to consider.

Thrilled to be back a second time staying at the lovely Blue Oyster ,Judith is such a welcoming and accommodating owner and she is very capably assisted by Ntombi who cheerfully cooks and presents a delicious breakfast whilst guests enjoy the wonderful views of the knysna lagoon ,it never disappoints. We stayed in one the large en suite rooms upstairs which has every comfort and a great shower ! Very conveniently situated for restaurants etc although you’d probably need a car as quite steep hills to climb.We’ll be back hopefully for longer next time.

Everything over here is perfect. Hospitality by Judith. Food by her cook. Houskeeping even make it better for you when you come back. And not to forget about the view from the property 🤩. Got to ride up a hill but still you are heading for the best.

I cannot thank Judith enough for the perfect stay we had at the blue oyster BnB. Everything about this place is incredible and Judith makes every aspect of it feel like a ‘home from home’. Initially we were shown around and blown away by the view from the breakfast room which continues into every room we saw in the BnB. Straight away we had been upgraded (for free) to a room with a ensuite (but both were equally as incredible) as the room was available. Judith goes out of her way to ensure you have everything you need for your stay in Knysna and is plentiful with recommendations (which all turned out to be 5*) for restaurants, things to do, places to see should you wish. Although even if you choose to stay all day at the BnB you’d still have the best time as the pool looked amazing. The breakfast which is included with your stay is one of the best breakfast if not the best I have ever had, everything from fresh fruit and yoghurt to a fry up is yours if you wish. So lucky to have found this incredible little gem on the garden route.

Judith runs a great business situated at the top of the hill over looking the bay. The breakfast was fantastic. Also really good advice on where to eat in the evenings and what to see and do. I would thoroughly recommend a visit.
