We've never been to Nelson and choose the Hume Hotel after looking at several hotels in the area. So happy we stayed at the Hume. Don't bother looking at other hotels. Great location - right in the heart of town. There's restaurants right in the hotel if you don't want to venture out. There's also a liquor store adjacent to... More

Thanks for the review, I am hoping that we didn't lose a star because of the City of Nelson's embarrassing 'No Dog Downtown Bylaw'. Since the 1990's, the City Council has decided that dogs are not welcome in our downtown core. Every four years with a new City Council, the majority of citizens and business owners are hopeful that it... More

I always love going to Nelson. Great places to eat and stay. The Hume's recent room renovations are amazing. They have captured the history while modernizing the facilities. I will stay here again. The several dining option are nice. I ate in the pub. They put on the basketball finals for me. Service food and drinks were all solid.

We had one of the renovated rooms on the 3rd floor, the bed was seriously one of the most comfortable beds ever. The front desk warned of the noisy night life, but we were there during the week and did not any problem with noise. The service was great, the breakfast is not your ordinary Continental Breakfast. There were about... More

My husband and I have now stayed at the Hume Hotel on two separate occasions, and on both, we were treated to first class service and accommodations. The rooms, restored to resemble the origins of the hotel are clean and beautifully decorated with warm, relaxing colours and temptingly comfortable furniture. This is complimented by time period photographs and murals which... More

I will never book threw expedia again since we paid full price for a un-renovated loud old noisy room for $150 / night. I've paid less at a ski in / out resort than at the " Hume ". Under staffed in the Restaurant NOT WORTH THE $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Don't book through Expedia? If you go to Expedia, the prices are exactly the same as if you booked directly through us. You obviously booked the cheapest room available - it is $109.99 + taxes including a full hot breakfast. After tax that comes to $126...if you paid $150 you must have had four people in your room with everyone... More

The Hume was fantastic. Only place to stay in Nelson, BC! The room was very clean and the tasteful mix of modern and historic makes it unlike any other hotel. And on top of that it offers multiple options for food and drink. Even a hidden club to have a dance party late at night. Very unique!

The Hume Hotel is well located, just as you get into Nelson. It's charming/quaint, with very friendly staff. Our room was on the 2nd floor, spacious, comfortable, with the only negative being noise coming from the radiator system occasionally, but it was enough to wake me up in the night. The elegantly decorated radiator itself was beautiful, if not part... More

We stayed here for a ski week. From the first minute until the last, all the staff are very very kind, the best i've seen! The service, the food, the atmosphere, everything is perfect; I heard some neighbor but i'm a light sleeper. We had a great "séjour" and we recommend the Hume to everybody! Two thumbs up!

I haven't stayed in the rooms at this hotel, yet I can say that the staff and restaurant and bars and the hotel itself are all run very well. i have lived in Nelson since 1976, when the Hume was the only place to go for inclusive dancing. I always go to the restaurant when I come back from my... More

We stayed here on a weekend getaway recently. It was the first time visiting this hotel, and we were very impressed, from the moment of check in to check out. We stayed in the Juliet Suite, which is on the fourth floor, and has a great view of the courthouse and lake and mountains. The room is beautifully decorated, meticulously... More
