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... More

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... More

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, More

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... More

We travel often and generally don't find hotels to be something to talk about, but the whole family loved Swans Hotel. The staff is amazing! Jennifer, in particular, went above and beyond to make us feel so welcome and special during our short stay. The room was 2 stories which made the kids flip with excitement and allowed my husband...

Stayed here for the weekend, great location! Stayed on the 3rd floor in a King Loft, was pleasantly surprised, the room was quiet and so much space!

We took our kids to the brew pub for a bite mid afternoon and the food was good, but the service from our older waitress whom has been serving for tables for way too long was unfortunately not good.

The Swans is a great hotel for a short trip to Victoria. The staff was really nice and I enjoyed every second of my stay. I stayed there with 3 friends of mine and we rented the suite, which was very spacious and lovely furnished! I would definitely stay there again.
