A charming hotel very close to the waterfront with a brewpub. It doesn't get much better than that. Very nice suite with lots of room. Good food and good beer. It is walking distance to practically everything Victoria has to offer.

We stayed one night, we don't live far but wanted to have a night away from home. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. It has a great location. We have no complaints. We will stay again.

The Swans is a lovely old hotel with lots of character. The rooms are decorated with interesting art. The location is close to the bridge and within walking distance of the down town area and many restaurants. The Swans Brew Pub has an excellent menu and the food is good. The beds were very comfortable. The staff is very friendly...

We had a wonderful lunch of Reuben sandwiches and beer. Thank you Eugenie for the attentive service. We stop at the Swans when we are in Victoria as the food quality and service is consistent, so it was a return visit.

The place seems to have really gone downhill since our last visit. The longtime manager has gone, so has the live music every night. Most of the staff don't seem very interested. After many enjoyable visits over the years, I'm sorry to say we won't be going back.

Swans was recommended to me by several co-workers. Swans is in a great location. An easy walk to my meetings, downtown attractions, the waterfront and parliament buildings. As I was staying for three nights, I loved that the room is like a one bedroom condo with a separate bedroom and a full kitchen. I would recommend that you request a...

Location is great - right downtown, near restaurants, bars, touristy things. The room was very nice and it was quiet - third floor suite, with a small kitchen. Check in and out was quick and easy. They have an arrangement at a parking lot nearby for $11, or you can try to park on the street (I paid for parking)....

I ordered fish & chips & my wife ordered the prawn appetizer. I also tried one of their on site brewed...

One of the oldest micro brewery pubs in Victoria, is easy walk from anywhere downtown, open very late on weekends, The Swan Pub appeals to a fiercely loyal and abundant after work happy hour crowd with bartenders who know their trade ( make a point of remembering your name, your drink or something about you after FIRST visit-now that impressed...

We were looking for a reasonable place to sleep and in a good location in Victoria and there was an option with very good price but on the top of the pub. Considering we were there to have a little bit fun, that was a very good choice for sure! The only concern is about the service at the front...
