“A great place to stay in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

You will be pleased you chose to stay here, The room (the Ocean Mist) was charming, the location is very convenient for seeing the city and breakfast was superb. The best part though is the care to detail and friendly personality of the host, Leeanne. She was a delight and so helpful to her guests in many ways. Being from New England she took good care of us. It was a pleasure to meet her. So put Seattle Hill House on the top of your list for places to stay in Seattle.

These folks were great- wish I had had more time with them! They own their own place "Pickering House" on the East Coast in New Hampshire!!! Learned from them and enjoyed
them as well! thanks for coming,

Staying at the Seattle Hill House was simply a delight! My husband and I rented the "Ocean Mist" room and loved every aspect of our stay! The staff is friendly and very helpful - on our first morning, while eating a delicious multi-course breakfast, Leanne briefed us on the bus routes, the best places to eat, and many other "insider tips." We enjoyed our room (cozy feel, comfy bed, private deck, private bathroom) and loved that we could use the kitchen to cook on the evenings we decided not to sample the local cuisine. The food was amazing - every morning was different, and there is no way I could pick my favorite from the 5 days we stayed! Yummy coffee, delicious food, cozy bed, great atmosphere, and all at a reasonable price! Who could ask for more?!? If you're traveling to Seattle, this is the place you want to stay!!

Room Tip: Ocean Mist is a wonderful room for a couples retreat!

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights at the end of September. When we arrived, we picked up our keys at the designated location. With our keys, was a note that our room had been upgraded! This was such as nice surprise. The room we were given was the Ocean Mist room, which has its own private patio. This would be a great room to choose if you are wanting a quiet and peaceful stay. There really aren't any other rooms very near to this one (the other rooms are either in the other building or upstairs) so you have a fair amount of privacy. We also thought the bed was REALLY comfortable. Breakfast was also great, and very filling. Both days we were served a 2-course breakfast which included an appetizer like a small pancake with fruit, plus a full egg-and-toast breakfast. We thought the location was a great base for sightseeing. We walked to the Pike Place Market and to the Space Needle (took about 30 minutes or so to walk, but the bus out front would be another quick and convenient option). If you are looking for nightlife there are plenty of hip places to check out a couple blocks away in the heart of Capitol Hill (although it's not so close that it interferes with a good night's sleep). We highly recommend this great home away from home.

A perfect place to stay, great location with easy walk to downtown or a bus stop just outside.
Lovely room & surrounds, friendly hostess & staff & a wonderful cooked gourmet breakfast.
Although we didn't require it there is off street parking.
A lovely area of Seattle with restaurants & shops close by. We loved our stay.
Thank-you

Wonderful place to stay. Close to activities, easy to find. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Food was awesome, especially the breadpudding (see picture below!) We felt very welcomed and cared for. Thank you

Room Tip: Room away from the streets were quieter.

Now this was an unusual situation- 4 amazing ladies - taking their annual girl trip together!
A different location every year- which makes me sad as I wonder if I will see them again- but
we had sooo much fun! Just a delightful group! A heads up to any other B&B that may read
this- you definitely want to say YES when they call!
Hope to see you soon,

This B & B is located in two old houses in the Capitol Hill area. It's only a mile from downtown, convieniently located to other attractions, and on a bus route. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was exceptional as was the friendliness and helpfulness of our hostess. There is free parking at the door, a rarity in this area of town. The price was very reasonable. Highly recommended!

We loved our stay at the Seattle Hill House.
It is tucked on a hill in a great neighborhood of seattle - Capitol Hill - which I absolutely loved but it's not your typical touristy destination. Great restaurants, coffee shops and little independent stores on 15th, and on 12 and pike/pine.
It's about 20 minutes walk downhill to pike's place or the space needle, and there are buses right outside the door if you don't want to walk or climb your way back.
The Madras suite is very large and nice, and the Food was delicious. Leanne the innkeeper is very warm and friendly and makes you feel right at home.
I will definitely be back on my next trip to Seattle!
