We were passing through Nelson and needed a one night's stay. We opted for The Hume right downtown instead of a chain hotel/motel. The room was clean, the front desk staff pleasant and the price right. The bedroom had its charm with balcony windows that opened to a view of the street, but the uneven floors and antique furnishings seemed a bit unsettling after having stayed in an ultramodern place the night before. We had a light supper in the dining room and were very pleased with the food and service. The homemade rhubarb pie was excellent. However, the hot breakfast which was included the next morning was awful. I applaud the owners for maintaining this beautiful building and for travelers looking for something other than the usual hotel room, I would recommend The Hume. Originally the parking lot was full, but we did find a spot just after supper.
