Was to Victoria this year, and we always seem to end up back here. First off, the staff are fantastic! Special shout outs go to Ryan and Angela at the front desk who bent over backwards to ensure our stay was painless. We reserved for a week, and faced the possibility that we might have to move rooms, which was... More

Very charming boutique hotel, a really fun place. The suites are huge, on two floors. The sleeping rooms are upstairs under the roof, so be aware that they may get quite hot in the summer. The location is great to explore the old town. We enjoyed the live music in the bar.

We've been staying here nearly 20 years and I can attest that it has maintained its standards of charm, friendliness and cleanliness throughout this time. We've stayed in a number of hotels in Victoria, but always come back to this one. It's one of the coolest, funkiest "boutique" hotels around! Prices have gone up as anywhere, but it's still very...

Though this little gem just off the heart of down town Victoria and one block from the sea may look a little dated... It is the place to stay! Food was amazing, they brew their own beer ( with a beer tasting card when you check in). Live music every night and attention to detail with a patio pot of... More

I loved the location of this hotel because it was close to the boutique shops and chinatown, which had more of a 'local' feel in my opinion than downtown areas. We stayed one night and the room was nice, but I think this is better suited for people staying for a longer duration since there is a full kitchen we... More

Very comfortable hotel. More spacious than most, with the bedrooms up stairs & bathroom on main level. A bit of a draw back if you need to go in the night... Parking was around the corner in an open lot. Many shops nearby & across the street. Lots of non-chain little cafes and restaurants. I prefer to frequent non-chain coffee... More

Nice location, very spacious suites and great beds. Only tiny littel minus is that the bedrooms in our suite were upstaurs and the bathroom was downstairs, but apart from that would really recommend this hotel.

Nice hotel, that isn't a like every other hotel out there. We had a nice room, with a small kitchenette, and kingsize bed. The room was fairly newly renovated, and was really comfortable, with great vaulted ceilings with a french balcony. It's located right downtown, and walking distance to the parliament, restaurants, and chinatown. We were on the second floor... More

I have been to victoria many times before and always stayed in the big hotels. Swans was only known to me as a good place to eat or drink. We decided to use the hotel for a biuness trip. The loby was small and a little sketchy and we were concidering leaving. The staff was friendly and helpful so we... More

We were traveling with friends and pleased with the location of this hotel. The Market Square is across the street (great shops/restaurants) and Chinatown is the street behind. Walking to downtown to see the Empress Hotel, Royal Museum and Parliament Buildings about 10 minutes. Room was great. We rented the two bedroom and surprised only one bathroom and not on... More
