This is our third stay at this hotel and the size of the rooms and amenities bring us back. Besides being spacious, the beds are super comfortable and rooms very clean. High ceilings, kitchenette and the pub downstairs add to the ambience of this hotel. Shopping and access to the port and lots of restaurants are a bonus. Love it here!

Myself, my wife and our 9 year old son stopped here for 2 nights. The room was a great size and perfect for us. The location was ideal as we enjoyed being outside of the centre but only a sort and pleasant stroll away. There are plenty of surrounding shops and eateries to keep you entertained.
The pub it’s self had a great atmosphere and some great artwork. All of the staff were very helpful and pleasant and we would definitely stop here again.

I visited Victoria with my 2 adult daughters, to do some shopping and to generally enjoy “girl” time. Swans Hotel & Brewpub was the perfect place. The Brewpub in the building was very good as well as convenient. The staff were efficient & very inviting in both the pub and hotel reception. The Swan was within walking distance of everything we needed; shops, restaurants, bars, pubs, museums and the gorgeous Victoria waterfront and parliament buildings. The room was ideal for visiting, with a sitting room separate from the bedrooms as well as the convenience of a kitchenette to store our food & drink items. We will stay again for sure

We stayed here as we were going to a concert close by. We were NOT disappointed. It is a charming older established hotel. Near the water so great location. The rooms are large and some with a full kitchen. Prices are reasonable for what you get and there is an abundance of charm and character. It is right downtown so you are close to everything and with walking distance to all the sights. There is parking available as well. $11.00 per day

The hotel is older and has lots of stairs in most of the rooms but it is truly a unique space. I was there with work with colleagues and every evening we went to each other’s room. Each space had a nice living room and unique original art work – some nice, some, well….regardless, the art sparked lots of conversation and good laughs. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Close to lots of great restaurants, shops and the harbour.

Stayed in the 2 bedroom suite -staircase to bedrooms & bath on upper, kitchen/living room on lower level. Also had a patio. No view. Very quiet. I would suggest more towels & towel bars in the bathroom – needed as it is a family suite. The restaurant downstairs was very good unfortunately they only serve breakfast on Sat. & Sun. Parking is not good as it is downtown so must unload & then go find a place to park

My family recently spent Christmas Day and Boxing Day in Victoria and while we have been @ Swan’s for food and craft beer in the past this was our first time staying in the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by the rooms, the layout and decor or rustic meets modern was some much more that we expected. I know where I will be staying next time I return to Victoria.

Swans Hotel Victoria

One of my favorite places to stay but not without some room for improvement.

Beds are all way past their prime. Soft and saggy, couples will find themselves crashing into each other in the center of the bed unless they cling to the sides with one arm. Beds need to be replaced with modern, firm, top-grade mattresses. This is something that all upscale hotels have done.

In our bedroom suite there were no accessible outlets. In this day and age, everyone – but everyone – has a mobile phone that is used as an alarm by the bedside. It’s important to have an outlet to be able to charge phones at night. This could easily be accomplished by having a bedside lamp that has an electric outlet found in most hotels. As it was the only way to get at it was to pull a bed out of the wall or move one of the dressers to access the hidden outlets. This is extremely inconvenient.

There should be a bit better coordination between housekeeping and reservations in terms of number of guests for the sweets. For example if there are six guests booked for the suite, there should be six sets of towels. This sounds like a minor thing, but it does show a lack of coordination between hotel and service groups.

There’s a difference in the suites. The ones that overlook the street can sometimes be a bit noisier, but are much bigger than the suites that are internal. As this area has developed and improved over time there isn’t too much late-night noise from the streets anymore. When booking, try to ask for an outside suite, unless you have infants that are easily disturbed by any noise at all.

Wireless worked very well! Nicely done!

Despite the above criticisms, we will stay at the Swans again, of course! We’ve been going there for nearly 20 years now. It’s a wonderful hotel, exceptionally clean, and the staff is very friendly. The atmosphere is wonderful and the art is fantastic. Excellent brew pub with great live music Thurs-Sun. (No longer nightly) (And they no longer serve breakfast, though, too bad.)

Also, as I just learned this past trip, all profits from the Swans go to support University of Victoria, as Michael Williams’ (the local philanthropist and owner) legacy was to create a bequest to the University of Victoria of his land holdings (including the Swans Hotel) and his art ( according to their website “one of the largest private art collections in Canada.”) So you are supporting something good and local – not some mega-chain foreign corporation.

So, despite some criticisms to management here, this is a great place to stay, eat, drink and make merry and enjoy some great artwork.

I was surprised on entering my room that it was a duplex with kitchen, en suite, living area and Juliet balcony on the lower floor with a bedroom on the floor above. It was very spacious and I obviously hadn’t picked up on this up when I made the booking. I travelled from Vancouver by seaplane and these were visible throughout the day from the living area. Not intrusive but very interesting to watch them landing in the morning.
Restaurant good, pub and entertainment lively. No noise in my suite at all. Very helpful staff. Very good location and a characterful hotel.

A nice spacious room. Front desk folks were very helpful. We enjoyed the unique decor of the pub and enjoyed drinks there. Location is right near China town and the inner harbor. Walking distance to many highlights of Victoria.
