Checked in Halloween for a freinds birthday. We never left the Hotel or Pub the first night. Great party in the Pub with a rockin band. Such a lovely room i totally would do it again.Great location. Walked everywhere. The noise from the band was not an issue in our room. Front desk was freindly and obliging.

Staff helped me ship some art. They were very helpful and super friendly. The room was great!!! Had a small kitchenette that came in handy. Loved the art in the room and Juliette window. Entertainment downstairs was fun! Will definitely go back!

The staff here is top notch, super attentive. The Hotel rooms are clean and spacious. The music from the Pub was a little loud one night, and we could hear it in our room. A call to the front desk solved that. There is fresh coffee and fruit just off the Hotel Lobby for guests in the morning. Nick, Hugh... More

Swans is a local landmark hotel and brewpub and we've been coming here since before we moved to Victoria 20 some years ago. We have always enjoyed the ambience, sometimes the food and usually the beer. Their musical taste however has always been a sore point and has often taken away from our enjoyment. In times past my wife and... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion during your visit. The music scene in Victoria is exciting and vibrant and in our enthusiasm we do tend to get louder however we have recently installed a sound monitor to control volume levels, sorry it was loud on the night you visited.

The art hung in each room expresses the wide tastes of the collector. The suites have 2 floors with plenty of room for relaxed entertaining, simple meals for two and views of the harbor.

The good points - Convenient location Comfortable bed and settee Adequate kitchen The bad points - The place was very dark indeed and even the electric lights were not very bright. There was little or no ventilation, only a skylight in the bedroom and a French door onto an enclosed balcony. When the skylight in the bedroom or the French... More

Popped into this pub on a rainy afternoon and sat in the glass covered veranda which was bright and away from the TVs. Tasty beer - try the Berry Ale - and the seafood chowder was silky smooth and full of seafood. Typical pub prices and decent service!

We are happy to hear you enjoyed our chowder on a rainy afternoon, it is also one of our favorites and Chef Travis will be delighted to hear this. If there was a chowder competition in town we would definitely win it.  The Berry Ale is delicious but try our seasonal release ‘7 Swans a Swimming’ we have had... More

We stayed at the hotel while visiting Victoria with friends we hadn't seen for several years. The rooms were large, very comfortable and very reasonably priced. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and the Blues Band that played in the evening was great. Most of the rock and rollers on the dance floor were mature... More

We did not stay at the hotel, but we had dinner in the Brewpub during our honeymoon trip in 2011. We got dressed up and we got a table in the section of the restaurant that's kind of an outside area but still inside the building: with many windows, kind of like a greenhouse section. There is also an area... More

Thank you for your great feedback. We are so happy you enjoyed your visit to Swans, although we are sad to hear you could not try our beers, which indeed are award-winning beers. We hope to have you here again and try maybe our root beer instead and don’t worry, you will be in luck as every night is band-night... More
