It is in the name, come expecting a mountain lodge and you will be pleasantly surprised. The furnishings are basic, rooms are small, parking is ridiculous (I get it, Nelson wants to keep its charm), but you are right on the main street and staff is helpful.

The staff were young and were always very helpful and friendly, the coffee pot in the lobby was always full and the breakfast muffins were delicious! This was a great location where I could walk to restaurants and shops. Did not have a view at all from my room but all you need to do is step outside. The rooms... More

The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very basic but clean. Our room was quite small. There is no free parking. From Monday to Saturday (9-5), the parking has to be fed every hour. The hall seems to echo any noise so it can be noisy. There is no coffee maker or fridge in the... More

I stopped here on a solo road trip. It was clean, the staff were friendly, and the price was right. It is located right in the heart of Nelson, just steps from bars restaurants and shopping. Overnight parking was not an issue. A great little place to stay if you happen to be on your way through..

Conveniently and centrally located on the main high street, the hotel has clean, functional rooms that provides a comfortable stay. The water pressure and temperatures in the bathroom competently delivers. The lighting and bedding linen in the room are also simple and elegant. The wifi is free, and the signal is strong and consistent. Last but not least, the staff... More

The Mountain Hound is located with in walking distance to many restaurants. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. It was the off season, so they were not super busy, but the walls are thin, so you can clearly hear your neighbors. Continental breakfast was minimal but they did have coffee, fruit, muffins and juice. The front desk... More

We arrived in the Mountain Hound with my spuse having flu with high fever. In a flash our room had been changed to a more quiet one (not facing the street), he was brought more blankets and the function of the thermostat had been explained. During the stay the staff was extremely helpful. No it's not The Hume, but neither... More

My only negative comment would be about the town itself. They should be more tourist friendly by letting you park longer than an hour with the parking meters! We were with 2 dogs and it was very dog friendly. My husband stated the walls looked like a dorm room (painted brick) the rooms are minimalist but clean. Hot water plentiful... More

We stay here every time we go to Nelson. It is simple, clean, friendly accommodation in a fantastic location. It is right on Baker Street so it is perfect.The value for money here is second to none. We usually stay here once a year.
