“Amazing stay at Knightswood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

My family and I rented the carriage house as well as rooms at the Knightswood in September of 2011. My wedding was taking place in Halifax and we needed a good location to accommodate many quests from out of town. We we able to stay in the main residence as well as the carriage house.

The owners were fabulous and great to deal with. They were welcoming and made sure to stock up both fridges with everything we may need for a healthy breakfast, plus more.

The carriage house is equipped as any comfortable home would be, including laundry in the basement. There is a large lot for your vehicles as well. There is a murphy bed and single beds up in the loft area. The three-piece bath has a shower stall. There is a large living and dining area on the main floor.

The main home has many bedrooms, a large bath upstairs and another bathroom with several rooms downstairs. They can acocomodate many guests. There are amazing gardens surrounding the property. You will feel like you are at a resort and much like us, will not want to leave.

This is a hidden gem. it was an amaxing one week stay and we home to visit again soon.

We had the opportunity to stay in the Carriage House. The main floor had a Murphy bed that we found comfortable for such a bed. There is a loft which sleeps two, just watch out for the sloped ceilings. Our hosts left us enough food in the fridge for our 2 night stay. The self contained kitchen comes with all the items we would have at home, so cooking was not an issue. Everything was very clean and fresh.
Located on a quiet street was great for a peaceful sleep, with the windows open. If you have a few moments in the morning walk around the gardens lots to see.

I found this place hidden on the web, in my search for B&B's in the Halifax area. We have never been made to feel more welcome than by the hosts, Norma and Bill, who are, themselves, seasoned world travellers. Our evening chats about their travels and ours seemed more like evenings spent with close friends. The accommodation was superb, with very comfortable beds and top quality linens. Breakfasts were amazing, with hot entrees and freshly baked muffins and tea biscuits, all topped off with fresh fruit picked from their lovely gardens. I could keep going but you need to visit it yourselves! I will surely return!

I stayed here for four nights and felt very lucky to have chosen this B and B. The owners are well travelled and there are interesting mementos of their adventures and lots of good stories. Norma and Bill genuinely enjoy meeting folks and making them feel welcome and at home. The bed was extremely comfortable with terrific breakfasts. A great place to return to at the end of the day.
