Great location in Nelson and very friendly/helpful staff. I arrived on a Thursday and had a discounted rate from my online booking. When I decided to stay another night they extended my discount and gave me a nicer room! The accommodations are simple but that's the point. It's a streamlined hotel with everything you need and the price reflects that.... More

Without any plans, we found ourselves in Nelson looking for a hotel. We stopped off at the Travel Info Center where we came across The Adventure Hotel. Newly renovated, great service, clean and perfect location. -We dropped off our bags and walked around downtown for the day. -The pub serves great food that's not just typical 'pub food'. Very classy... More

We got recommend this hotel from local. It‘s a 100 years old hotel, just finshed renovation. Very modern clean hotel. Nice river view. Good service. Restuarand in hotel. Just wish if they had elevator, that would be easier to carry our bags to our room.

Very nicely redone hotel in the middle of historic Nelson Downtown. Boutique style decor throughout. The rooms are fresh and edgy, and a nice change from standard hotels. We had one of the deluxe queen bed rooms with 3 piece bath, good air conditioner that was not too loud (a rare find indeed!). Their is a nicely appointed common area... More

I liked most things about this hotel - the location, the recent renovation and the clean facilities. However, I was not prepared for a room with a sink and toilet and no shower or bath. I guess I should have known when the price was only $64 in June. The air conditioner was noisy so bring ear plugs, I did.... More

I stayed on a Thursday night. There was no issue whatsoever with noise from the pub downstairs. Check in was quick and friendly. The room was very clean. The newly renovated modern decor gave the room almost a minimalist European feel. The air conditioner was a little on the loud side but did not interfere with my sleep.

Stayed here May long weekend, fri, sat and sun. Booked this hotel as they allow dogs. Reservation made by phone April 8. When we checked in we were advised our room was above the bar and Saturday night is karaokee so it may be loud. I was never told this on the phone. When we inquired about another room we... More

We randomly chose this hotel and we loved this place! It was really nice, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the bunk bed was super fun! We would definitely come back! And I'm using up characters because it won't let me post this without 200 of them.

This is a nice hotel with a great pub and restaurant attached to it. The rooms that are not renovated are as expected, a little bit run down but fine if you're not expecting luxury. The bathrooms are about the same. It was nice that there was self serve coffee in the hallway near our room in the morning! However,... More

Even though I disagree with the hotel's name change (should have remained The Grand), the recent renovations have really hit the mark, particularly considering the room cost. The hotel's location in downtown Nelson, puts you in the middle of what was a surprisingly robust downtown core. Great restaurants and coffee shops all within walking distance. And don't dismiss the hotel's... More
