Not being part of a chain, Swans is easily and often overlooked. In my books, it's one of the better places to stay on Vancouver island. The rooms are huge, well kept and each has its own character due to the fact that the hotel has one of the best private art collections to be found outside of a museum. If that's not enough, there's a great brewery on site and live music most evenings in the lounge (where the some of the most impressive art pieces are housed). Great coffee shops (Bean Around the World & Habit), breakfast joints (Mole & Jam), and dinner options (Brasserie L'ecole) are all within 2 blocks. Rooms directly above the pub/resto should be avoided, unless you are a very solid sleeper, or are keen to stay in the pub till it closes. Rooms that face out towards the street and water are by far the best, especially the two level one on the upper floor. Guest service is limited, but completely adequate. If you are looking for a unique stay, this hotel is well worth a visit
