Had a great trip to Nelson, loved the room on the fourth floor. We also had a centre split room which really worked out well. The food in the pub was good, one waitress was rude, but the rest of the staff were great.

Glad you enjoyed our newly renovated rooms. We have just put the finishing touches now on the third floor whereby half of the rooms are completed there. We have a total of 30 renovated Deluxe Rooms and 15 unrenovated Heritage Rooms to offer.

I am concerned about the rude waitress you had in the pub. Certainly not a common complaint about the Hume as our staff are typically nothing short of amazing. I will message you directly for more details.

Thanks for the review.

My husband, aunt and I enjoyed a brief stay at the Hume Hotel in beautiful Nelson, B.C.
The fourth floor has been recently renovated and we a were able to get a centre split room - two queen beds separated by a central bathroom. It worked out very well. Very good service and a nice restaurant - would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for the fourth floor

We were riding motorcycles briefly into Canada as far as Nelson. This hotel is centrally located and you can walk almost everywhere. The hotel is excellently restored and renovations were still going on. Parking for bikes in the lot as first come first serve and two bikes can fit in one space. Dining there was the best in town. (We tried a couple others) the Pub was a rocking place. That's important to remember when choosing a room. Unless you plan to be in the pub get a room on the 4th floor or other side of the hotel from the pub. Oh, yea loved the breakfast too. They had live music and entertainment is several places. If your looking for one of the best motorcycle roads take the FREE ferry and go south on highway 3a.

Thanks for the kudos, Ken! I am glad you enjoyed our beautiful, winding and often quiet roads up here on your motorcycles. Motorcycle tourism seems to be increasingly popular every year. Our road are a main attraction.

Sounds like you enjoyed everything about your stay here. We have worked hard on the renovations and enhancing the guest experience.

Judging from your photo in the pub it appears that you tried the new Nelson Brewing Company organic Tall Tall Wheat Ale! It is currently my personal favourite and what do ya know, it can only be found on tap at Mike's Place Pub in the Hume Hotel...!

We hope to see you again in the future. I will pass on your remarks to the entire crew.

My husband and I spent 5 nights in one of the newly renovated 4th floor rooms. The room was beautiful and the new windows made the room very quiet. No outside noise at all. The furnishings and décor are first class and have retained the heritage feel of the hotel while giving you every modern comfort! The included breakfast each day was wonderful. No stale muffins and cold cereal here! 4 choices up to and including eggs benny one day! We also stopped for dessert and coffee in the library lounge and that was wonderful as well. The staff here are friendly and professional and made us feel very welcome. We would definitely stay here again!

My husband and I stayed one night and would have loved to stay 2. The heritage room was very comfortable, and we were not bothered by the pub at all. Service was outstanding, everyone loves their jobs and it shows. The food was very good, large servings and the wine list was very good and reasonable. We loved the smell of the old hotel, it is such a pleasure to see so much character and care taken to restore the hotel. We highly recommend a stay in this hotel and we will go back, the shopping in Nelson is fantastic and the whole feel is so relaxing.

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. They had just finished renovating the 4th floor, which is where we stayed. The room was very nice. My husband, being a contractor and perfectionist ,can spot shoddy work easily. He was extremely impressed at the workmanship that has been done. We stayed over a weekend, so didn't experience any noise from the workers on the floor below. Besides, with the town of Nelson right there, who would want to spend the day in their room anyway. Lots to do and see. We had dinner and listened to some nice jazz in The Library on Sunday night, and the Sunday brunch is out of this world. I can't say enough about The Hume's wonderful staff. They are a genuinely nice group of people. Very helpful and caring.
We are definitely going to return. We had a wonderful time.

The Hume Hotel is a quaint and unique hotel in downtown Nelson. The renovated rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Above all the service in this hotel is above all. It does not matter if you are in The Library and M.J. Is helping you or up in Mike's where Jill is there to assist, everyone in the hotel is super friendly and works to anticipate your needs. I find my stays at The Hume are very relaxing.

Thanks for coming and using us for your business meetings, Shannon. The staff thoroughly enjoyed serving you and the crew. I also appreciated your honest feedback after the last time you stayed with us as we had missed the hair dryers in our new rooms - I'm sure you noticed now that the hair driers are there, so thanks for the reminder.

We hope to see you again in the future.
