Recently stayed 3 nights after an Alaskan cruise. This place is as good as the previous reviews. John made us very welcome and the whole house is very comfortable and beautifully furnished. The breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit and pastries. The bus service to Downtown was frequent and reasonably priced. The local restaurants and bars were good and just... More

We stayed at the Foxglove Guest house for 3 nights. John is the best host ever. His continental breakfasts were "to die for." I have never had a better continental breakfast. My wife and I loved the home feel and rustic charm. John was very helpful to answer our questions about the city, it's hidden gyms and things to see... More

Just returned from a work related trip to Seattle and stayed again at The Foxglove Guesthouse. I stayed in room 4 in the attic this time. Beautifully finished. Breakfast choices excellent. John is a superb host, and great at recommending where to go/see/eat. Looking forward to returning with my other half in a few weeks time!

we loved our stay at the Foxglove guesthouse! John was a welcoming host and was happy to answer our questions about area attractions and parks. It was nice to be able to stay close to downtown and then be able to enjoy a relaxing quiet environment when we returned from the day's activities. we wouldn't hesitate to book here again... More

We really enjoyed every aspect of our two night stay. The room was very tastefully decorated, the bath was large, the common areas were well appointed and the breakfast was amazing. We would absolutely stay there again on a return visit to Seattle. It was also pretty easy to get there from SEATAC using public transit, which was helpful because... More

I stayed for two nights over the Weekend. I felt most warmly welcomed by the owner. The Foxglove is located pefectly on Capitol Hill in a quiet neighborhood, only a 15 Min busride from Downtown. It's really a wonderful place to stay.

My daughter and I stayed for two nights over Easter weekend and were pleasantly surprised upon check-in to find we were upgraded to a bigger room! Thank you, John, for that most welcome perk! As on our previous visit, everything was impeccable, and breakfast was delicious and bountiful, including excellent coffee. The house is beautifully furnished with decorative pieces of... More
