I have been staying at the Swans Hotel every time I come to Victoria for the last 20 years. Great staff at the pub and my favourite bartenders Andrew and Rickey. Angela at the front desk is the greatest. She always makes sure you have the right room for your visit. I highly recommend staying while your in Victoria. Make... More

I really like my stay at this hotel. You are downtown so you have to expect some noise and can walk pretty much anywhere. Parking is a block away from the hotel. I don't think this a place for a family with small children. My room was very nice and clean. During my stay I enjoyed the band and the... More

Clean and comfortable altho it is on a noisy street, some bar noise late but it was a weekend and I expected that. Food in the returarnt was good. Waitress was a ditz! Too bad cuz the hotel staff was very nice and informative. About two long blocks to the main street, about four blocks from the main areas...

My friends and I shared a suite at the Swans Hotel. The suite was very very nice. Not sure I'd recommend this particular suite for families with small kids because there was a stairway up to the bedrooms. I'm sure they have others though. The service was excellent. We also enjoyed a meal at the Brewpub, also with excellent service.

My wife was washing her hands on the 2nd floor, and I noticed the water leaking to the first floor in the kitchen. I contacted the reception and someone came to the room and he said there are no available rooms that I can move you to right now, but I will bring you a bucket and we will adjust... More

Sir, I am very sorry to hear that your stay with us was not an enjoyable one. We take pride in ensuring our guests want to come back again and again. An incident like a leak in the room is never planned and I apologize that as the hotel was 100% full and as such we were unable to offer... More

I stayed in room 205. Management said it wasn't above the pub but I could clearly here the band and people hoot and holler as they left. Had luke warm water for a morning shower. Parking is in the open in a public lot. Room faced a busy street intersection and a run down building. There is no air conditioning... More

we stayed at 2 different hotels this time while in Victoria. Swans was overpriced compared to the other one we stayed at, but the less expensive one was much nicer and more relaxing. We came up from Oregon on motorcycles and had asked ahead of time about parking. We were told there was a lot directly behind the hotel we... More

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.
