My partner and I recently spent the night at Swans Hotel and Brew Pub and have nothing but good things to say about it. The building was built near the end of the nineteenth century as a seed and feed distribution warehouse and has been creatively transformed into one of Victoria's most interesting and welcoming boutique hotels and pubs. I... More

The location is right downtown so os great for sightseeing. However at nighttime there was a number of drunk and rowdy people around. The room/suite we got was very shabby and not chic. One bathroom dowbstairs and two bedrooms upstairs. The two bedrooms had no proper windows!!!! One had a skylight and the other some sort of floor level screen.... More

This is an excellent packpacker's hotel. Cozy and affordable. Swans hotel is a great hangout to stay at when in Victoria. So affordable and cheap. With full kitchens equipped with a stove, it was good for a night in with friends.

Swans hotel is always a pleasure to stay at when in Victoria; frankly I would not stay anywhere else. Staff is great and rooms are very spacious, each with a terrace, and a well equipped kitchen, if you want to prepare your meals. Then again there are so many good places within an easy walk I have usually restricted myself... More

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
