A Lovely Place to Stay

5 on September 18, 2017

Though this was our first stay in a B&B, it will be hard to top. Linda is a gracious and friendly hostess who made us feel welcome in her home from the first moment of our arrival. The room we stayed in was clean, comfortable, and charming. Linda has really thought of everything, including soft, cozy bathrobes, and plenty of towels, blankets, and pillows. But the real jewel of this B&B are the breakfasts. You will not go hungry so long as you are staying here. We enjoyed six different breakfasts during our stay, each as delicious, nutritious, and filling as the rest. We would highly recommend this B&B and would be happy to stay here again.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the kind words. I enjoyed meeting you and hope you will visit again.

Museum of treasures, gardens of paradise and peaceful retreat

5 on June 24, 2017

My parents and I arrived at A Good Knight in Wednesday and were delighted the moment we drove up the driveway. The heritage house is beautifully decorated and we felt like we walked into a museum of treasures. The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. My parents had the Knights room with a separate sitting area with tv and I had my own single room with a chair and tv. We had our own bathroom and it felt like we had our own floor since it was so private and quiet. Linda is an excellent cook and we loved her breakfasts and presentation. Her creativity is evident in every corner of her home and gardens. My parents enjoyed their stay and told me they never saw anyone so talented! They were so happy I chose this B and B out of the many others in the Victoria area. Also, the bus to downtown Victoria is a 2 minute walk from her place. A quick 30 minute ride takes you to the heart of the tourist area and boy were we glad we didn't drive since traffic is congested and parking is expensive. We will certainly return as we plan to be regular visitors to the island now that we have finally moved back to our home province of BC!! Best place on earth!

A working holiday

I needed a place to stay that was close to the University of Victoria and found A Good Knight. I would very much recommend this B and B, not only for its great location and access to transit, but for the cozy atmosphere. Linda took care to ensure that our room had a lot of towels, blankets and everything smelled fresh and clean. The bed was super comfortable and we (my husband and I) quickly settled in. Breakfast was different every morning and we enjoyed them all. Linda is wonderful and I will recommend A Good Knight to anyone needing a B and B in Victoria.


First time at a B & B

5 on August 15, 2016

This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and we were not sure what to expect. We were very pleased with our experience. The breakfasts would rival any restaurant. The rooms were clean and the atmosphere very peaceful. Linda was a wonderful host who provided information on visiting the island. If we are to visit Victoria again, we will definitely stay there and also recommend it to our friends.


Fabulous B&B

The very best B&B we've ever stayed. Beautifully decorated, spacious rooms, and delicious breakfasts. Linda is a jewel, so charming and gracious. Hope to return someday. Iris and Terry Houston, Texas


An enjoyable stay

Excellent breakfast with enough fresh baked breads to last all day.


Charming and hospitable B&B

5 on July 10, 2014

My husband and I came to stay at The Good Knight over a long weekend this late spring. Linda was very hospitable and provided a wonderful get away retreat for us. She was full of information on good places to visit and how to get around Victoria. The B&B is very charmingly decorated and made us feel like we were at a special relaxing get away just for us. Linda is a very good cook and went out of her way to create tasty gluten free and vegetarian dishes for us. My husband is very easily cross contaminated from gluten (ie - shared sponges that have washed dishes or utensils containing gluten). I explained this to her ahead of time and he didn't have a single cross contamination incident! We were quite impressed as this issue can make it complicated for him to eat out at resaurants or other people's homes. The B&B also has gorgeous gardens, is in a quite and safe neighborhood, and is quite affordable. We will definitely be staying here again in the future when visiting Victoria and recommend it with raving reviews to our friends and family!


A Delightful Surprise

A wonderful part of our short but sweet stay in Victoria! Linda, our hostess, has every detail just right and is a lovely person who helps with any request or need. Easy to get to the Inner Harbor and very scenic along the Beach Road. Lovely morning walk to the beach at the end of the Linda's street. Linda's breakfast was delicious and her table settings which change often are a special touch. But the best treat is sitting in her beautifully designed and maintained garden! Be sure to allow time to relax there! Thank you, Linda! Krista and Terry


OH MY GOD!

We have just returned to the bleak reality of life at home after spending 9 wonderful days at the Good Knight B&B. Woke up this morning - couldn't smell breakfast cooking or coffee brewing, the table wasn't set, the soft music wasn't playing, the candle wasn't lit. And where's my fresh fruit bowl? And the back veranda just doesn't have the same appeal! :) But seriously, if you are thinking of staying in a hotel rather than this particular B&B, think again! You will NOT be disappointed! We've never been treated better - anywhere! This is an unbelievably spectacular home, with a very special hostess, and we know you will agree with us if you stay at the Good Knight! Mark & Linda
