Enjoyed a late lunch in Swans Brew pub (and hotel). They offer a comprehensive menu, plenty of space, and the staff are friendly and helpful. Good fish and chips, good fish chowder and a range of sandwiches and appetisers. Their own range of beers are also palatable. In short, it is unlikely you will be disappointed in this downtown hostelry.

The room is very nice, the staff is great too! The pub happy hour is fantastic! As for a few minor negative comments... the walls seem a little thin as we could here the people in the next room coughing and talking. The shower head was small, and water pressure was a little weak. Otherwise great location, parking is defiantly...

The staff are exceptionally friendly and understand what hospitality means. The brewpub has a perfect location for people watching and with a great selection of brews, this is always worth a visit. The chicken fahitas are my favorite here.

They have a clever little trick they put a clean white sheet on a not so clean dingy stained comforter and a clean sheet between it and the bed. Did not notice til the last day when 240+ a night we photographed the comforter and the sheets. Floors above creaked horribly. Older hotel and historic but not worth price. Brewpub...

Just delightful. Staff were beyond wonderful. Only thing we would have changed would be to have Netflix. The movies were on DVD's but a...

The location is fantastic, within walking distance to everything that Victoria has to offer. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. Our room on the water side had a great view from the Juliet balcony, which is a really cool feature! Parking is on an outdoor lot next door, for 11$. We really liked this easy access to our vehicle....

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.
