We love the Sleeping Bulldog. Comfy, nice outlook, easy to park on the street, wonderful breakfasts, drinks and snacks readily available. We travelled with friends one of whom is coeliac and her needs were catered for thoughtfully. Korby is a wonderful host.

A convenient location, free parking, clean and cozy accommodation, tasty food, snacks in the fridge, and welcoming hosts! What more can you want? My husband and I were incredibly happy with the accommodations and definitely will be back!

The accommodations were top notch. Room was very clean and the breakfasts were gourmet quality. The owners were extremely personable and by the time we left we felt like we knew them. I would strongly recommend anyone visiting Seattle choose Sleeping Bulldog. You will not be disappointed.

We started our trip here and it was a good a start as possible. The housekeeper is nice and helpful, the breakfast absolutely amazing. Everything is clean, the rooms make one feel right at home. Has to be the best place to stay in Seattle. Obviously, the house mascot bulldog is the icing on the cake.

If you are visiting Seattle, then I would fully recommend The Sleeping Bulldog. My wife and I, with 2 friends, booked 2 rooms for 3 nights at the beginning of August. It is a short bus ride (although this includes a very steep hill to climb back at the end of the day!) or cheap ($12) taxi ride from Downtown.... More

We had a great time during our stay at the Sleeping Bulldog. We chose the New Orleans room based on many of the reviews from Trip Advisor, and it did not disappoint. The room was incredibly spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. We loved sitting on the balcony at night and enjoying the sunset with amazing city views. Korby and Randle... More

This B&B is #1 for a reason...they've earned it. The innkeepers (even interim keeper Cathy while one of the regulars was out of town) work hard to make your stay the best it can be....great location, fantastic rooms/property, help with directions/activities/etc., amazing food, and above and beyond customer service. We stayed in the New Orleans room for the view and... More

I stayed at this BnB with my daughter last year and vowed to return with my husband to stay in the New Orleans room (well worth the additional expense). Korby was as helpful as ever, and the breakfasts divine. The room was spacious and had every amenity we could have hoped for. The view of Seattle at night was unbelievable.... More

My wife and I spent a few days here at the end of the fourth of July wedding trip to the Pacific Northwest and had a great time.
