All suite hotel in historic building with in house brew pub. We stayed with friends in a two bedroom suite which has living room, dining area and fully equipped kitchen on lower level with bedrooms and bathroom on 2nd level. Live bands nightly in downstairs bar. Hotel is conveniently located next to Chinatown and you can walk to Provincial and... More

I was out to Victoria and the Island for a business trip and found the Swans because of Tripadvisor. I stayed for 2 nights the week before May long weekend. The good stuff: The suite I had was equipped with a full kitchen, eating bar, king bed, desk, and a small balcony overlooking the street - not the Pandora side.... More

Handy location, easy in-&-out self parking (which we prefer) less than a block away, pub handy for dinner on evening we arrived (& really good beer). Two-level suite with comfortable king bed upstairs & comfortable, spacious area for relaxing downstairs; we didn't spend a lot of time in the suite, but the time we did was enjoyable.

Stayed for Wedding anniversary, booked studio above the bar, we were given an amazing upgrade to a king suite, still above the bar. We truly enjoyed the atmosphere and balconies! Rock band playing in the bar could be heard clearly until about 1 am, This was not a problem as we were told when booking, and I slept right through... More

The Swans Hotel was in a very convenient location for checking out all of downtown Victoria within walking distance and for catching buses to other areas (Butchart Gardens). The suite was very spacious and clean (& quiet), but we stayed for only a couple nights that we took advantage of the city's fabulous dining options and never even used the... More

this was a perfect location. It was more like an apartment suite, than a hotel room. Parking was available for $10 a day, which was reasonable, and only a block away from hotel. There was a pub attached to the hotel, which offered a 15% discount for hotel guests, and they had live music everynight. I thought , this might... More

Stayed at the Swans - we had a two bedroom suite (1 king bed + 2 singles beds in another room) which were upstairs from our spacious living quarters which comprised large batroom, good kitchenette, large recreational space and outdoor patio, The huge king bed and good wardrobe space were a plus, and although this renovated 1900's warehouse has few...

We had the pleasure of staying at Swans over a very sunny and pleasant March weekend in Victoria. We were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves in a two floor room with kitchenette, livingroom with fireplace, washroom and outdoor patio on the main floor with a upstairs bedroom with skylight. The rooms had been refurbished and were very tastfully finished. The... More

Due to a reservation mixup on the part of the hotel we were upgrated to the Penthouse Suite, which really was truly awesome. Over 3,000 square feet, multi-level, tons of awesome antiques and artwork, large brick fireplace, private rooftop terrace - obviously a great place to stay if you can afford it, or if you just get super lucky like...

I stay at Swans Hotel in Victoria, BC about once a month for work - it is awesome! The rooms are great, most of the upper floor rooms are two-level, 3rd floors have a loft, really unique and comfortable. Lots of room and table space for working, even small meetings. Fully equiped kitchens are really handy. Some of the electronics/appliances... More
