The accommodations are spotlessly clean and John provides a wonderful self serve breakfast each morning in the gorgeous Dining Room.The location is a short bus ride into Downtown Seattle. It is a very beautiful neighbourhood and one feels very comfortable when out... More

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of days before heading out on an Alaskan cruise and it was perfect. We stayed in room 1. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in and the location is very peaceful. John put out a great breakfast. The location is very convenient with bus service to downtown... More

John the Innkeeper runs one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in. All of his advice as far as where to eat and what to see were spot on, plus he is an very interesting person to chat with. (All of the details about the beautiful house have been detailed in the reviews below.) We stayed in Room #2... More

Foxglove B&B was a comfortable and peaceful home away from home. My husband and I lived in Seattle more than 15 years ago and were back in Seattle for 5 days to visit friends. This neighborhood on Capitol Hill appealed to us because it's close enough to the sites to be convenient, yet far enough away to be relaxing. It's... More

My wife and I travel to Seattle occasionally and this once decided on staying at a B&B as we usually stay downtown at a chain hotel. After looking on the internet, I came upon reviews for Foxglove and it certainly appealed to me. Located in a portion of Seattle I was not familiar with, it was a welcome change to... More

What a perfect location for a weekend trip to Seattle! Walking distance to downtown, or a quick city bus ride, so I parked my car for the weekend. Capital Hill neighbourhood is full of beautiful Victorian homes, and there are lots of restaraunt choices close by. Also a short walk away is Freedom Park, with its conservatory, and tower from...

Foxglove Guesthouse is definitely as advertised. Beautiful home, beautifully decorated; spotlessly clean. John is an excellent host; friendly, but discreet. Breakfast was lovely and ample. Location is excellent - 15 or 20-min to downtown or Seattle Centre by bus just a couple of blocks away. Don't really need a vehicle, although a parking pass is available. Rooms were gorgeous and...

This is the second time we have stayed at Foxglove. This time we had the third floor room #4. The room was clean and well appointed. The neighbourhood is wonderful and there are good restaurants (Talullah's and Coast Kitchen) within easy walking distance. The continental breakfast was continental had lots of choice and I appreciated the gluten-free toast that John... More
