We've stayed in several other hotels in Victoria over the years and we've found the one we will always return to from now on. Front desk man Stacy immediately set the tone and continued to for what front desk service should be. We had never met him before, yet it was as if he was welcoming and hosting friends with...

This was our third time staying at Swans, and it has been quite a while since our last visit. In the past I have raved about this hotel, now finding myself hard trying to defend 3 stars. One of the reasons that my wife so loved the place was they made an egg Benedict for breakfast that she thought the...

This is a charming hotel located in a brew pub. The downstairs has a very active bar with a band playing every night. There are about 30 suites above the bar. Our room was located at the back of the hotel and we were never disturbed by the noise. It was quiet. Most of the rooms have an interesting layout,...

we didn't expect posh and what we got was entirely functional despite being on two levels. Actually the levels probably allowed for better privacy and sound control. Beds were fine our two bedroom. Master seemed large though no window (?). Double was ok but tight. Kitchen had full sized fridge and it was stocked with plates, cutlery, glasses etc needed...

My husband and I have just returned from 3 nights at swans and we were very impressed. We spent our first 2 nights in a studio room above the pub. If you are looking for a quiet night then i do not recommend these rooms. They are loud as the pub does have live music every night. The hotel staff...

From the moment I walked in the front door I was treated as an honored guest. I was greeted with warm hospitality, helpfulness and courtesy every time I passed through the lobby or entered the restaurant. I asked all kinds of stupid tourist questions and always got a helpful answer. My room was very comfortable and quiet, even facing a...

Loved the character of the hotel room. We had a one bedroom suite which was plentiful in space. The location was fantastic! Wonderfully clean. Even the sleeper sofa was comfortable. My only complaint was that we couldn't enjoy it for a longer stay. Cannot wait to go back.

Stayed recently at the Swan's boutique hotel/brewpub/nightclub in downtown Victoria. This hotel is full of old world charm. Rooms feature actual metal keys, huge vaulted ceilings with beautiful brick walls covered in modern artwork from the local area, full kitchens with full size fridges, huge bedroom closets and comfortable bed, very large living room area and actual(!) cable tv instead...
