Second year in a row of date night before Christmas at the Whistling Swan and we just loved it. Rooms are nice, dinner was to die for and the staff goes above and beyond to make your stay great! The location in the center of Fish Creek makes it easy to walk around and enjoy the sight and friendly establishments.

Second time staying here and would do so again. Staff is so friendly and helpful with recommendations of things to do and a genuine desire to make you feel comfortably at home. Rooms are small, but it's a B&B, not sure what else you would expect. 4-post bed, quaint seating area and small TV in the suite we had. Walking...

Located in the heart of Fish Creek, walking distance to most restaurants, great shopping, and marina. Walked to Sunset beach each night and watched the sunset, beautiful!! Our room was perfect, decorated with era light-fixtures and antique decor. If you enjoy the charm and quaintness of the past, you will love your stay. Amazing staff, very attentive to making your...

The room was nicely laid out. Nice decor. Attentive and nice staff. Did not eat here, went out and about. A little noisey at night with live music outside a block away. Right in the middle of shops, etc., so very convenient.

Great little hotel. Situated in the center of Fish Creek. You will be close to the marina, beach and state park and lots of excellent restaurants. We didn't eat dinner here but it has a highly rated resturant of its own. Simple room, clean with great linens. Breakfast was continental. Again, simple but lovely.

I was so incredibly impressed with the charm of this cute little hotel, but not only the place, but the staff was so wonderful. This building has so much history is it just amazing.

Whistling Swan Inn is a great choice for the Fish Creek area. The ambiance is excellent & typical of Fish Creek. My only critique would be a somewhat "limited menu " which is fully priced. Very refreshing and a good choice.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a spontaneous weekend getaway in June and were beyond pleased with the level of hospitality, generosity and enthusiasm from the staff. James greeted us Friday night with an amazing personality, and helped us settle in nicely, giving us the lay of the land. The Inn overall is very quaint, a bit "rustic" but...

Great staff and very attentive to your needs. We had trouble sleeping the first night due to a light that shone through a transom window. The staff unscrewed the light bulbs so it would not bother us the next night. Breakfasts are simple and simpley delicious!

“The first time we stayed here our bed had a head and foot board. That didn't work for my husband who was 6 foot. We laughed it off our first stay! But our other times we returned I always made sure to ask for a room that didn't have a bed with a foot board.”
