The Swan is in one of the prettiest buildings in Victoria in a great location a little away from the noise and main tourist attractions but easy walk everywhere. it is right opposite the Market which is fun. However our loft suite was quite dark and both rooms were upstairs while the small bathroom was downstairs which wasn't very convenient. The living room was comfortable with huge sofas and unusual interior decoration. our room had a hatch on the ceiling instead of a window and the other room was also practically windowless. However they were large, spacious rooms so you didn't feel too cramped. The rest of the hotel, bar, lobby, restaurant is very pleasant with a good atmosphere. The Saffron Bistro is a little pretentious with complicated but tasteless dishes though good value. Probably better to eat in the pub. I have had better beers.
having said all this I didn't see anywhere else in Victoria (except possibly the Empress) where I would have preferred to stay. So i would still recommend the Swan.
