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)....

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...

Then upstairs HUGE bedroom with king sized bed, this room overlooks the kitchen. The rooms were huge, ceilings very high. Great art all around, the paintings are part of a collection from...

I provided the cake and cupcakes for a wedding in the Saffron Room at Swans this summer and the management and staff could not have been more pleasant and accommodating. The room looked lovely and everyone was very attentive and detail oriented.

Came here to get a nights rest before catching a morning ferry. Room next door is pack full of yelling people with music loud enough to shake the walls. At this point I am waiting for the noise cutoff so the hotel will "intervene" as they put it. Review will be updated based on how that goes...

This is a unique place near the Victoria waterfront. We've been before. An old warehouse converted into bedrooms/ apartments/ condos. We enjoy the King Loft. A full kitchen (unfortunately not very well equipped), a full entryway, living room and bath. Up more than a dozen steps is a large, spacious king bedroom loft with a view of the harbor near...

I've stayed at Swans probably 4-5 times now. Its my go-to hotel when in Victoria and I recommend it to all of my friends. Having said that -- it might not be everyone's cup of tea. Its a little run down at the heels in places. Furnishings in the rooms, carpets in the halls, paint, etc could all use an...
