This was a great choice for a first visit to Nelson. The welcome and help from the staff (Jesse is a dynamo) was stellar throughout, even in early May when there was an elevator outage. (I didn't have much luggage and needed the exercise.) Was booked into a snug single renovated room with view of the courthouse and river: extremely... More

We stayed at the Hume for 3 nights. We had one of the newly refurbished executive rooms with 2 queen beds and a lounge area - the room was perfect for us. The hotel is ideally located for Baker Street and restaurants. The service in the restaurant is very good. My only minor critisicm is that other than your room... More

Excellent stay! Wonderful room, excellent menu and friendly staff. I will be staying there next time I am in Nelson in the fall. Big huge 'Thank You' to the crew at the Hume! It's right in the middle of town as well so if you wanted to take a stroll in the evening, I recommend it!

My husband & I met in Nelson for a wedding last weekend. I drove my car, he drove his motorcycle. We had plans to take his bike to visit friends while staying at the hotel. I had forgotten my helmet at home. When we mentioned this to the women at the front desk (Loralee & Jesse) they both got on... More

Stayed at the Hume Hotel over the past weekend and we were quite disappointed. We did not get a newly renovated room. Perhaps we should have complained, but one doesn't expect to put guests in room that is below standard. The room although clean and spacious was not up to the standards that one would expect for what we paid.... More

Ouch - definitely sorry that you found everything so below standard. Because we were running a full house, a Heritage Room is all that was left. It is no doubt worth it to pay the extra money for a newly renovated room but unfortunately they weren't available. You are right - no air conditioning or conditioner. The arborite is slightly...

Stayed here for 2 nights. Room was very nice and clean, with modern furnishings. Staff was friendly and helpful. Maya in the library restaurant was great. Food was very good. They supply ear plugs so we thought it might be loud but we thought it was pretty quiet. There was a kureig coffee pot in the room which was a... More

Thanks for staying with us and writing a review of your experience. Parking can be a challenge everywhere in our city. We have fourteen stalls that fill up on a first come first serve basis. Luckily we are located next to the City Parkade so finding a spot is never an issue. In addition, all the metered spots around town... More

This is a remarkable heritage hotel which has been very tastefully modernized to preserve the heritage value. Very friendly staff. The hotel is spotless and exceptionally well maintained. The full breakfast is equal in quantity and quality to any breakfast available. Nelson has taken great care to preserve the historic downtown as well as scores of houses dating to the... More
