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... More

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. More

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... More

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... More

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... More

My Fiancée and I had a really great time staying at the Hume! The entire building has been newly renovated, so the rooms featured everything you would expect and more from a high quality hotel. Service was exceptional; everyone was so friendly and helpful. The Hume's restaurants on the main floor have really great food, locally brewed beer which I... More

The Barrister suite was immaculate and very comfortable. The location of this hotel is perfect for experiencing Nelson. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed the massage and hair services at the new Spa. I look forward to visiting this hotel again soon.
