We stayed here at the tail end of a visit to Vancouver Island and we wished we saw this hotel earlier on. The room was MASSIVE, had a great sitting area and kitchenette on the main level and a super loft bedroom on the second level. The room was quiet, spacious, well maintained and comfortable. It had a really nice view on the drawbridge close by.
We only had to pop in downstairs to get a meal at the pub.
The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer...

We stopped in for a late dinner. It had character and good service. The burger was excellent and only $8.00 after 9 PM. It included the absolute best soup I’ve had in my entire life - tomato with roasted peppers.

The rooms at the Swans are big enough for a king bed, desk, table and chairs and a full kitchen. The beds are comfy and while I don't often cook or eat in my room, it's nice to have breakfast or snacks. Coffee is provided.
The check in was fast and friendly and the rooms are behind a locked door accessible by your room key only so even though there is a pub and sometimes live music below, as a single traveler, I felt safe. Having a brew pub and a wine store was a bonus!
The hotel is right downtown across the street from the Johnston Street bridge which is spectacular in the evening. And, despite the noise from the street during the day (who stays in their room during the day anyway?), Victoria is quiet at night. There was a tiny balcony with French doors for lots of outside air but once closed for the night, were very soundproof.
Being downtown also meant not having to drive anywhere. There are also suites so a family could easily stay here. I would.

Happy hour is a must, great part of the city to start your evening or end it. Nice staff, great food, good drinks, excellent views to look out and see Victoria move along. Family members have taken home enjoyed beer. As a Victoria lifer, its a must
(Selecting 2018 as a travel date as there is no choice for 'I live here'!)

Pub with a great location in historic downtown Victoria.

Really good selection of local beers on tap. Pub food way beyond average.

Excellent service.

Good pricing.

And a painting of Pierre Elliot Trudeau looking down upon you like the scum you are. What more could you ask for?
