We arrived hungry off the ferry from Port Angeles, and the restaurant was perfect - the food came quickly and was delicious. I had a salad that was chock full of wonderful flavors and ingredients. Our room in the hotel was spacious - an apartment really. We loved being close to Chinatown and being able to walk everywhere. It's only...

Stopped in to the brewpub for a beer and decided to stay and eat. The food was surprisingly good; tried the Asian stir fry with prawns added and it did not disappointment. The bowl was full of noodles covered with fresh, steaming vegetables and prawns. The margarita pizza was a bit bland.

We booked into Swans studio suite after last staying there in 1997. When our room was ready we were told that another couple had requested our studio so we were "upgraded" to a 2 bedroom suite. Well, the room was as far from the elevator as you can get, it is on two levels, with the bedrooms and bathroom upstairs,...

My sister and I needed a 2 room suite. Swans had one for about $240/night. Was sort of a 2 story loft. 2 bedrooms upstairs. Nice LR with table and kitchen facilities on main floor. Street level featured a great brewpub with good food and good beers. Fascinating historic neighborhood with architecture from 1880-1930s, including many local court houses, port...

We stayed in the king suite above the bar. Each room in the hotel is unique. Ours had a very large living room, separate bedroom and kitchenette. Although it did not bother us, the noise from the bar is noticeable until about 1am. If you need more quiet a different room type would be more suitable. Dinner was good at...

The hotel/pub is situated right on the edge of downtown and Chinatown by a busy-ish junction that, amongst others, leads to Johnson St bridge (not the prettiest!). This area is being developed - over the road is an old warehouse or similar that is being refurbished and extended. We were happy to stay in a place that appeared to have...

Met up with friends on a very busy Friday night, so the place was busy but we managed to find a table. Servers are quick and helpful. Lots of interesting beers and cocktails, including a dark coconut porter and an orange beer. The paprika calamari was really good, super crispy, tender and not greasy! The soups, burgers and Thai stir...

Booked a 2 bedroom apartment for 4 nights in the Swan. Although the apartment was adequate both the upstairs bedrooms, particularly the twin room was extremely hot & poorly ventilated. With a tiny window that clearly hadn't been opened before our visit it honestly was difficult to breath properly at night. My sister ended up sleeping on the couch the...

This hotel is in the perfect location in downtown Victoria. The room did not have air conditioning and was very hot in the night. It was pretty loud but the kitchen units are awesome if you want to make your own meals. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. It was a bit expensive for what it was.
