Stayed for two nights over American Thanksgiving. We had a glitch with the online reservation package. The management was very fair in working it out with us. The spa was professional with a great couples massage. We ate in the library and Mike's and were happy with both. We stayed in one of the suites and were pleased. The bed...

I have only stayed at the Hume once but I am dying to come back and stay again! Maybe longer than 2 nights this time! Such an amazing and fascinating building. LOVE that there is history to it as well. Super clean and renovated. The food was ridiculously good and everyone was very friendly. Didn't get a chance to try...

That's quite amazing to hear! We appreciate all of the wonderful things you have to say about this old place. We just put the finishing touches on our General Store Restaurant renovation and the brand new lobby floor installation begins this week. I hope you will come back and see the incredible changes we have in store for the main...

This was our first trip to Nelson and staying at the Hume, but it certainly will not be our last. Wonderful period building and features, but with upgraded, modern rooms and amenities. While the hotel is in the final stages of lobby renovations (hence the 4 rating vs 5), it had little impact on our stay. There were many great...

Brought our pup to Nelson for a night and stayed at the Hume. Much to our surprise when we showed up, they had upgraded us to a suite free of charge. We even met the manager who said they gave us the suite just because it was available for the night. Every one of the staff members we encountered was...

It was great to meet you two...and the doggie. While it's not as busy, we love to randomly upgrade people into some of our premium suites to showcase some of the best we offer here at the Hume. Thanks for offering up a review and I'm glad you liked it. Hope you have a safe trip back to Alaska.

I live in Nelson but will often stay here just for a little get vacation in Nelson, its that nice! The renovations have taken this from a rustic charming option with some draw backs to a must stay hotel in the Kootenays. History is intertwined perfectly with modern flourishes. Staff bend over backwards and its just a great vibe. Dinner...

Hi taber...this is unfortunate to read since your last review of our property in 2012 was titled "Charmingly Warm" and now we have been demoted to "Uncomfortably Hot". In fact when I see all of your other reviews of various establishments in Nelson, you seem quite critical of all of your experiences. This is unusual because there are some pretty...

This is a great place to stay! Friendly staff, well kept rooms, included breakfast (reduced menu but good choices including the Daily Special) and dog friendly! They are currently in the process of remodeling and everything is looking great. The location is perfect. Parking is available with some space limitations but worst case scenario there is a parking garage located...
