The staff were accommodating and the food was good. wifi sucks, the rooms need serious updating, and the access to upper rooms is by stairs. Getting to some rooms can be a journey. No microwave in rooms but a community microwave in hallway. Small fridge and the beds are below average. The parking is terrible and parking area can be... More

We stopped for breakfast while driving through town. We asked at the gas station for a good place for breakfast and coffee and two persons recommended Fort Nelson Hotel restaurant. The hotel lobby was very welcoming and fitting to British Colombia and environs. The restaurant is connected to the lobby and serves a good variety of options. I was told... More

The rooms were great, I loved the decor and the food was also very good. When I cross country again I will definitely stop and stay again. Pet friendly and I had 4 pets with me including a 130 lb great dane. They did not even blink or question. I had trouble with my car and they directed me to... More

I have stayed at the Ft Nelson Hotel many times when travelling in northern British Columbia. I go back because of the helpful and courteous staff, clean rooms and good value. It is also convenient to have a restaurant in the building that serves good food at reasonable prices.

Sirs, My wife and I really appreciated the service from the night clerk, and in the morning jojit was so helpful with getting some paper work off a commputor and then sending to the proper place. This young man is a real plus for your business. We will always stay at the fort in the future when traveling through Canada.... More

Never got to check in. Waited 20 minutes for someone to acknowledge our being there at all then they proceeded to disappear! Wouldn't waste my time here again and definitely won't be staying here on our return trip!

If you think about staying here, think again. Nothing works. No pool, no clock, no hair dryer and I'm not sure the beds have been changed out since the 1980's. When you look on line they say queen beds. You get double.

We stayed in a different hotel the night before but came to the restaurant here for breakfast before hitting the road. While or food was being prepared, we asked to look at one of the rooms here and found it to be comparable to the one we stayed at the night before. Plus there is an indoor swimming pool and... More

This is the biggest hotel I have seen in such a small town in the middle of nowhere! The room was decorated with lots of timber furniture. A big king sized bed that was super comfortable. The rooms are all around the outside of the building while there is an inner "courtyard" a sliding door from the room leads onto... More
