Stayed at the hume hotel on our way back from cranbrook, b.c. The room we got was the newly renovated corner room on the fourth floor. It had all the new amenities with a huge shower in the bathroom. The downstairs bar is like going back in time. Lots of large wood pillars with a great curved bar. Would recommend... More

This wonderful historic hotel was opened in 1898 and sits on a corner in downtown Nelson. It has a lot of great history. The entry/lobby is very small and quaint with rustic wood and old-fashioned type carpeting. We were greeted by Jesse, who was so very friendly and very helpful with our bags. Check in was easy and efficient. We... More

The Hume Hotel is a beautifully restored hotel/museum, offering many photographs of original decor and turn of the century guests. Most of the rooms are completely renovated, yet keeping some of the old hotel charm. Rooms are very grand in size, compared to most accomodations today. Beds are very comfortable, pillows are terrific, air conditioning is new, efficient and very... More

I live in the northwest, my mom comes to visit once a year and we love to drive up into BC. This was the first year we stayed at the Hume, 2014. The Hume is lovely! We stayed on the fourth floor, that is fully renovated. The room was gorgeous! It has all the modern amenities, nestled in downtown Nelson,... More

When we first arrived we thought we might just stay one night. The hotel seems old, it's on a main and busy roadway. But we left saying we'd definitely come back. We stayed in a renovated room on the 4th floor, which was superb. Wonderful pillows of varying thickness, soft sheets, very comfortable beds; lovely clean/modern bathroom, TV's for each... More

Prescription strength stress relief!!!! My husband and I are in love with quirky old hotels and the Hume Hotel is the top of our list, and has been for years. The renovated rooms are spectacular without having lost the historical charm the building is so famous for. Not your typical business class place to put your head down. The Hume... More

Thanks Ward & Barb. I was happy that I was able to meet you in the parking lot before I headed home for the day. It is rewarding to accommodate guests such as yourselves that enjoy a quick four hour drive from the Okanagan to enjoy Nelson and stay at our hotel. Romantic getaways, as you put it, are a... More

The Hume was a neat hotel. History of it was cool. Great location. The library was my favorite place to eat/drink. Stayed in nice renovated "Minnie's room" but thought it was too expensive overall. Have stayed in some really nice hotels for less

This old Heritage Hotel was built in 1899 and is undergoing renovations. The 4th floor and part of the 3rd floor rooms are renovated. We didn't get into a renovated room so with no A/C our room was quite hot. The hotel supplied a fan which helped a lot. When the renos are complete it will be more comfortable during... More

We stayed in the Rapunzel room (corner room facing Kootenay Lake) which had been recently renovated. The room was was very nice and clean, and had a room to sit in to enjoy the view as well as the activity of downtown Nelson. Definitely recommend staying there as a special treat - it was our wedding anniversary and well worth... More

I am glad that you were able to experience the Rapunzel Room which offers the best view in the hotel as it over looks downtown with a clear shot of the lake and mountains. I am a bit surprised that you did not like the coffee service in the room because we just upgraded all of our Deluxe Rooms with... More

We chose this hotel because of all the great reviews. Great service started when we phoned to reserve and she took alot of time to make sure we were in the right room. The elevator was out of service while we were there and she was very up front about it which I appreciated. We stayed in Minnie's room and... More
