Loved the customer service! All staff were so friendly. One of them opened the elevator for me when I had my hands full and that was awesome. Loved being able to check out late as well leave the car and luggage after check out while we wandered around. Awesome!!!
I didn't expect this like hostel.
First, staffs are so kind. I love them
Two, you can meet good people, here. I met one Dutch person, British, German.. you can make international friends, here.
Third, wash room was clean, and water was warm. Super nice.
Fourth, easy to go everywhere, easy to get transportation.
Fifth, Most importantly, price is ssssso cheap.
We really enjoyed the hotel. It was very clean and comfortable with friendly service. I sprang for the "deluxe" room with the fancy shower and it was totally worth it. Our room had a nice little seating area, a desk, a fridge, and a coffee pot. That's plenty to make me feel at home.
We had dinner in the pub downstairs, Garrick's Head Pub. It was delicious and I'd highly recommend the burger. I cannot remember having better french fries, either.
We spent only one day but it was a good fit for our needs--a destination that we knew in advance would be comfortable and affordable, and that was an easy walk from the city bus bringing us from the Sidney ferry terminal. Friends in Victoria met us at Marketa's in their car, so we had easy transportation from Superior Street, too.
We could only spend one night in Victoria and were really glad we chose the Swan. Friends in Port Townsend who visit Victoria every year at this time and have stayed at many hotels recommended it. Everything was top notch, the staff were cheerful and very helpful, the location could not be better. It was raining and windy that night but not enough to keep us from the Christmas lights, which were spectacular.
The morning we had to leave my GF and I both agreed that "we could live here."
I love the room and the location. Breakfast was simple but still good. The experience overall was quite nice, i like the touch such as the water bottles and ice plus the coffee brewer. Only I couldn't sleep at night due to the noise from outside. Apparently there is a restaurant/bar accross the street that open til late.
