We spent 2 nights in room 101- one of their more deluxe rooms. It was spacious, lots of light, and very comfortable. The hotel has been renovated, and obviously a designer was employed because it all works and looks great. There is no coffee in the room, but a big pot full just down the hall in the guest lounge...that... More

The hotel has modern, quirky decor. I just loved it there!!! The staff were super friendly and super helpful. We had a dog with us, and the front desk was well prepared with dog treats. Our single queen room was just large enough to be comfy, but I wouldn't call it spacious. My husband was a bit weirded out by... More

stayed for 2 nights in this renovated hotel and our room (Room 126) was excellent. 2 queen size beds and a very nice shower and a lot of space. The room was clean. Staff helpful and friendly. Can recommend this place as long you do not need an elevator to get up to the higher floors. Location is perfect and... More

We really enjoyed our night at the Adventure Hotel. The location is fantastic, we enjoyed being able to walk everywhere in town with ease. There are some great common areas in the hotel where you can find coffee and tea in the morning and a great patio where you can relax after touring the area. The rooms were very nice... More

For years I traveled for work and I've stayed in a number of "newly renovated" hotel properties. This is the first hotel where I was literally Gobsmacked by the quality... More

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here. The first time we had an awful room,since the renos the rooms have greatly improved. The staff were ok but need to pay attention there has been two mix ups with payment and gets a little frustrating. Overall a nice hotel.

I have been staying literally in the same room at this hotel for 5 years now. My "new" room after the winter long renovation project was better than expected! Love the addition of USB ports in the plug ins. Allows me to charge multiple things at once with varied options. The beds are still as comfy as ever, even on... More

We are a couple in our 30s, visited Nelson for the first time. We chose this hotel has it was a reasonable price and good location, close to downtown. We immediately noticed how clean and trendy the rooms looked. Love the laminate floor - we both have bad allergies and so this type of flooring is really preferred. Allergy free!... More

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
