“Friendly, clean, and excellent food for a great price!”
Reviewed 17 August 2009

The location is convenient as a starting point for anywhere in Nelson, i.e. driving out to Balfour for the free ferry ride or window shopping on Baker st. The room is clean & the staff are very friendly. Eating at the Baker St. Grill is a must for good food & great price. If you want a more spacious room opt for the 2 beds instead of 1 even if there are only 2 of you traveling.

I found this hotel to be nice, clean, and suitable. They had wireless internet but no breakfast. The parking lot is across the street from the hotel which was a pain, and there didn't seem to be enough spaces for hotel guests as it was difficult to find a parking spot. It is in a good location from what we could tell, and the staff seemed friendly enough.

My room was in the back and it was very quiet and comfortable, though a bit small. It's pretty good value for a hotel with a downtown location such as this, and the staff were great.

No doubt about it, this hotel is at the best spot in town, just at the beginning of the historic Baker Street plus a complementary parking lot just in front. We are used to staying in B&Bs so entering the room is a little shock (they must buy their interiors by the millions so it doesn't matter where in the world you enter this hotel, it always looks the same). The room is also rather stuffy because the windows cannot be opened. There is a fan to bring in outdoor air, but it doesn't work at the same time with the airconditioning so it's a bit of a puzzle how to make the indoor environment comfortable. We end up opening the door to the corridor for some time. The rest is clean and the bed is good.
Breakfast is not included in the rate, which is fine because down the street is a very nice organic bakery that serves wonderful breakfasts. Unfortunately they are closed on Sundays.

We stayed at the Best Western, Nelson, for one night in early June 2009. The hotel was relatively easy to find and free parking was available just opposite the hotel. An excellent location in the town centre.

The reception staff were efficient. Unfortunately, our first room was not only at street level at the front of the hotel and quite noisy from passing traffic and pedestrians but also next door to a loud trio of Canadian women who seemed determined to out-drink and out-shout each other! When approached, the reception staff were quick to agree to change our room to a much quieter internal one. We lost any type of view (in fact, we looked out at a mural painted on a wall) but we gained a quiet night’s sleep!

The room itself was clean, comfortable and a good size – with two queen-sized beds. The bathroom was fine – although for those of you that like a nice deep, relaxing bath, please note that it was so shallow it would be difficult to drown a fly in it (even if you wanted to be that cruel!)

There was a fitness centre and hot-tub which looked reasonably well maintained. Breakfast was not included but we decided to take it in the hotel restaurant. It was good quality and excellent value. The service was also very good.

Nelson itself had had a somewhat ‘hippy’ feel to it. Very relaxed and chilled-out. We had an excellent evening meal at the Hume Hotel – a local legend it seemed and worth the reputation from our experience.

When I'm in the Nelson area, there is nowhere else that comes close to the quality & friendliness as this hotel. There is a good restaurant just off the lobby. The building is very solid and very sound proof. The front desk staff is very efficient and never without a smile.
Well done again Best Western.
