A wonderful Seattle stay at the Sleeping Bulldog

5 on April 03, 2016

We had a wonderful time. The room was fantastic. Everything was clean, comfortable and made you feel at home. The breakfast and snacks were superb. The owners were so friendly and accommodating. And of course Mojo and Monte were an added treat. We will definitely stay there on our next trip to Seattle. Myron and Gretchen Haas, Pottsville Pa.

Slept well in Seattle

5 on January 17, 2016

Very clean and comfortable with attention to details. Lots of amenities. To name a few: Keurig coffee machines in the rooms, snacks and bottled beverages in the hallway, heated floors and towel racks in bathrooms, baked goods downstairs to be enjoyed at any time, memory foam mattresses, high thread-count sheets. Innkeepers and there dogs were charming. Breakfasts were fabulous. We will definitely return.

Every Detail is Perfect

We've had the pleasure of staying with Korby & Randal at the Sleeping Bulldog Bed and Breakfast several times before and the tranquil beauty of their rooms, warm personalities and amazing breakfasts keep us coming back! For this latest trip we were in Seattle in December for a Seahawks Game and their place is centrally located to allow you to walk/take transit/take a taxi to the game (saving yourself $30!) and is an oasis to return to after enjoying the company of 69.000 other people! We loved sitting in front of the fire in the main room, surrounded by lovely holiday decorations and enjoying a bottle of wine. It also gave us the chance to chat with and get to know a few of the other guests which is always a nice bonus with a B&B. We retired to the sumptuous New Orleans suite each evening and feel blissfully asleep with the lights of Seattle twinkling outside the window and the heavenly mattress and sheets cocooning us to dreamland. Speaking of dreams, the breakfast is the stuff dreams are made of! A multi-course extravaganza of gourmet delights served by the wonderful team at Sleeping Bulldog Bed & Breakfast. We truly cannot wait to come back. Thanks again Korby and Randal for another amazing stay!

Innkeeper Response
With a great review like the one you gave us I feel like blushing. I am so pleased to have you back as our Guests and to know that we are still doing it right for our Guests. It really is our pleasure to make your stay so enjoyable. That Seahawks win was also a plus!! We look forward to seeing you sometime in the future. I know that Mojo and Monti will still be willing participants of some extra affection when you return.

Just Perfect

Perfectly appointed, gorgeous view, luxurious amenities, friendly hosts, delicious food; I could go on and on. An extra thanks to Korby for waving the minimum night requirement so we could enjoy our single kid-free evening away at the beautiful Sleeping Bulldog Bed and Breakfast. I'd love to come back and I will recommend without reservation to others!

A fantastic home away from home in Seattle!

5 on November 15, 2015

We stayed with Korby, Randal and their gorgeous boys (woof!) for a week. We never felt anything other than completely at home. Our room was fabulously comfortable- what a blissful bed!- complete with a bathroom of pure luxury. Korby's breakfasts were amazing, combining flair with imagination. His encyclopaedic knowledge of the city's buses meant that we could navigate easily without a car and made every day an adventure. We really cannot fault the Sleeping Bulldog and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone seeking the heart, soul and personality of Seattle. Right up there with the best of our memories: Korby's chocolate bread! Bravo! S&A, England

Innkeeper Response
We are so glad that you had a chance to get away from the kids to enjoy our New Orleans room. I'm pleased to hear that you had such a nice evening. You are most welcome back anytime! Thanks again.

Circumstances had us arriving around 3a.m. and checking out at 11am. During this 8 hours, we slept, had a marvelous breakfast, delighted in the company of another couple, enjoyed meeting the bulldogs, and took pleasure in exchanging conversation with Korby while he packed us a few yummy cookies for our continuing journey. While we had a tight schedule, the time spent at the Sleeping Bulldog Bed and Breakfast was relaxing and memorable. Thank you!

Innkeeper Response
Wow! That's about all I can say about this great review. We are so pleased to have had you as our Guests in our home and B&B. You are right about the location of our Inn. You really can't beat it especially if you are trying to do it without a car. That is one of the reasons we bought the house in the first place. We hope you will be able to return to visit us again someday.

Outstanding "home away from home!"

This modern B& B is the perfect getaway, just a short distance from downtown with a quiet, romantic setting. The breakfast and service was all that else could have hoped for and more!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for taking the time to send a review. I'm glad that you had a good time and that you found our place the perfect place for a romatic getaway. It always makes me happy to hear my Guests were happy with their stay at the Sleeping Bulldog Bed and Breakfast. Mojo & Monti say thanks too!

Best in Seattle

This B & B is better than many expensive hotels. Everything you could wish for is provided, the rooms are finished to a high standard and with great taste, and the breakfasts are really quite special. There is also ample on street parking. We met one of the owners, Korby, who couldn't have been more helpful. Musn't forget Monty & Mojo the bulldogs that give the B &B it's name. They are a delight and no trouble at all. The only issue could be if you have difficulty with stairs as the steps up to the property are quite steep. If we are ever in Seattle again we will be staying at the Sleeping Bulldog

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for taking the time to send in a review of our Inn. I'm glad to hear that you feel we are better than the more expensive hotels! We work very hard to make everyone's stay with us one they won't forget. I wish that I could say that there was something I could do about the stairs, but unfortuanately there isn't. We are always willing to help our Guests with there luggage if they need help.

Seattle's hidden gem

5 on July 10, 2015

We stayed at The Sleeping Bulldog after an Alaskan cruise, and our cabin would have fit in the living room alone! Everything was wonderful. Randall and Korbe were very helpful and friendly, and we loved meeting Monty and Mojo. The Northwest room was an amazing apartment, and it was very welcoming. The snacks were perfect, especially the homemade cookies. The amenities were great, and the bed was so comfortable! The food for breakfast was delicious and we can't wait to try some of the recipes. All in all, we recommend The Sleeping Bulldog to anyone who wants an extraordinary Seattle experience.
