We stayed in the Herridge Lane Suite with its own parking stall and BBQ just outside the front door. Everything for a great stay was provided, from a comfortable bed to a coffee grinder and coffee for that great wake up cup, and if needed free laundry facilities. Down the alley is a great French bakery and another block away...

Nelson may be a town of just over 10,000 but you'd never believe it with everything that's going on downtown. That's makes the Victoria Falls Guesthouse a great choice. Park your car (for free in their parking stalls) and walk mere blocks to everything! Very affordable for everything we had: charming decor, clean smelling room, comfortable - clean bed, clean...

My wife , our 2month old and I recently visited Nelson and stayed here. The service and communication during our stay was tops! They even put a pack n play in our suite for the baby, I asked for some candles the second night I got candles! I asked for recommendations, I got them!! However it's been a week and...

Thanks so much for your feedback! The summer months at our guesthouse are so busy and I see that we have been prioritizing the customer service with our guests and falling short on the paper work side of things! During the more mellow seasons this isn't a problem but we will definitely work to improve this important side of things...

It is hard to write a review when it may interfere with a future vacancy availability. But we should always give credit where credit is due. Very homey with personal touches that make you want to spend as much time in this lovely house as possible. Very kind and personable owners. Hoping for a longer stay next time.

My fiance and I stayed here for three nights while on a ski vacation to Whitewater. What a great spot! The suite was perfect and the location was great-- walking distance to downtown. We ended up cooking every night we stayed and the suite had pretty much everything we needed to be able to do that for the two of...

The two of us and our dog stayed here for three nights over New Years. The location is perfect for walking access to the central core of Nelson but was still quiet. The room we were in was spacious and had the charm of an old house. Our room had its own heating and air conditioning unit. The buildings Wifi...

We booked the Falls Suite last minute and were not too sure what to expect from the photos, but we were actually pleasantly surprised. It was more comfortable and spacious than we expected. Excellent location, right off of Baker Street. We enjoyed that we could walk everywhere. And we were also on the top floor, which had quite nice views....

Building is old, clean but cute. All was good until 10 pm as we were getting ready to read in bed, and the noise started. There is a very loud new nightclub directly across the street. The crowds of young people started yelling, standing outside smoking and swearing. It went on until 3 am. Every time the door opened we...

We do now have a nightclub which has opened across the street from the guesthouse. The weekend that these guests stayed with us was the 2nd weekend of the club being open and the first weekend we were down on the street outside of the club at night to see how things were going. It seemed quite mellow and the...

This was a great location for us and we enjoyed our stay. The unit was very private and comfortable - good bed. We stayed for 6 nights and with the exception of a few items, we were well stocked from the start. The hosts are very gracious and filled all our requests and offered more. We were there through some...

On a recent road trip with my sister, we stayed in the herridge lane suite. The price was right and the room well equipped. The location is walking distance from shops and restaurants. A good value option in Nelson, that I would recommend staying at.
