Blue On Blue Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 7 St. James B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 November 2017

We were warmly welcomed on arrival and enjoyed our stay overall.
The breakfast was good and served in a lovely homely environment.
The place is beautifully decorated and has a lot of character.
The only negative was the bed which we found uncomfortable.

Thanks so much for candid review. I'm so pleased that your stay was enjoyable. As we discussed, I recommend the Master Suite next time, as a king bed would be more suitable for someone of your husband's formidable height! I hope we have the privilege of hosting you again.

Friendly hosts and good communication prior to arrival with directions. Well located in St James. Superb breakfast and excellent value.

The Blue on Blue Bed & Breakfast is a unique place to get-a-way with a brief walk to the sea. You will feel welcome from the moment you pull onto the grounds.

My daughter and I enjoyed a spirited breakfast with hot and cold options prepared by the hostess and manager "Yoliswa" who was delightful. We are vegetarians and we were able to have fresh fruit, yogurt, bread and cheese, eggs, cereal, tea, juice and coffee.

The Blue On Blue is an upstairs, downstairs B&B and there is no wheelchair access. The decor is a combination of African and European accents. There are cozy nooks and books to read. There is a deck and walking pathways nearby. Oh, toilet and shower/tub are shared with other guests and off of the hallway.

While staying at this delightful B&B you can walk to shops and the sea. The African penguin colony is about 20 minutes away by car.

The B&B supports strong African women through it's affiliate center: Ekhaya Ikasi located in a local township. Visit the center and support families working to improve their lives!

The owner of the B&B is Tom and he is accessible.

Do stop through for a taste of Blue On Blue!

Room Tip: There are options for a single bed or twin beds. Our room had a view directly to the sea!

Blue On Blue B&B is a haven of blue vistas and calm in St James; with a very special and artistic atmosphere and attention to all those most necessary details and comforts needed for a peaceful stay next to False Bay. Absolutely wonderful.
