My wife,myself and our friends had a weekend getaway to this hotel and what a pleasant surprise. Close to everything.Excellent brew pub ( amazing selection of craft beers ) and restaurant. Really friendly staff but one in particular is why I am writing this. Hugh, the desk clerk, was awesome. He is what made our stay so enjoyable and relaxing....

This is a charming hotel located in a brew pub. The downstairs has a very active bar with a band playing every night. There are about 30 suites above the bar. Our room was located at the back of the hotel and we were never disturbed by the noise. It was quiet. Most of the rooms have an interesting layout,...

we didn't expect posh and what we got was entirely functional despite being on two levels. Actually the levels probably allowed for better privacy and sound control. Beds were fine our two bedroom. Master seemed large though no window (?). Double was ok but tight. Kitchen had full sized fridge and it was stocked with plates, cutlery, glasses etc needed...

My husband and I have just returned from 3 nights at swans and we were very impressed. We spent our first 2 nights in a studio room above the pub. If you are looking for a quiet night then i do not recommend these rooms. They are loud as the pub does have live music every night. The hotel staff...

From the moment I walked in the front door I was treated as an honored guest. I was greeted with warm hospitality, helpfulness and courtesy every time I passed through the lobby or entered the restaurant. I asked all kinds of stupid tourist questions and always got a helpful answer. My room was very comfortable and quiet, even facing a...

Loved the character of the hotel room. We had a one bedroom suite which was plentiful in space. The location was fantastic! Wonderfully clean. Even the sleeper sofa was comfortable. My only complaint was that we couldn't enjoy it for a longer stay. Cannot wait to go back.

Stayed recently at the Swan's boutique hotel/brewpub/nightclub in downtown Victoria. This hotel is full of old world charm. Rooms feature actual metal keys, huge vaulted ceilings with beautiful brick walls covered in modern artwork from the local area, full kitchens with full size fridges, huge bedroom closets and comfortable bed, very large living room area and actual(!) cable tv instead...

I brought a group of 10 ladies to this hotel for a bachelorette party. The rooms were very big, with a large kitchen and dining area, big private patio, and upstairs 2 big bedrooms. The value for what we got was great. the staff was very helpful and the Brewpub was great with a liver band and all. Definitely recommend...

Girls trip into victoria- thought the Swans would be perfect as its lication is prime and it looks super cute on the outside. The inside is very dated *especially the hallways*, the appliances are quite old, both bedrooms had barely any windows, and the cleaners didn't properly clean. Our room was also at the back, so quite a terrible balcony...

Thank you for your time reviewing our property. We are certainly in a prime location in beautiful Victoria BC, only a few steps away from China Town and all of downtown’s attractions. We are sorry your experience was not a fabulous one which would be our norm, but thank you for your feedback as we endeavour to improve. Best regards,

Stayed in a very quiet 3rd floor king loft suite for 3 nights (over a weekend even) and I would have never known we in the downtown by how quiet it was. Tons of space for our small son to play while we relaxed after touring around Victoria. The front desk was quick to respond if we needed anything. We...
