My family of 6, four girls aged between 15- 21, and two partners aged 20 & 21 and my husband and myself booked to stay at The Hume Hotel and Spa for two weeks over Christmas 2016. We were married here 25 years ago and decided to head back for a celebration. We booked the Horace D Hume Suite, which...

My husband and I recently spent a week at The Hume Hotel. We had a wonderfully large and comfortable room. Every member of the staff were fantastic and friendly, my personal favourite being Jody at the front desk. The breakfasts were terrific and the pub was great fun, especially on Bingo night. I would not hesitate to stay with them...

I have stayed at this hotel 4 times in 2 years. Every time I am in awe of the top notch service that is demonstrated by every single employee there. Whether it is check-in or out, information, service in the restaurants - it is always the same - THE best I have encountered. The hotel itself is a beautiful structure...

The hotel has over 100 years history which can be seen in the decorations in the front desk and the restaurant. The historic atmosphere is definitely there. Location is good. Hotel is right in the center of Nelson city, next to many shops restaurant and the historic Baker Street. The library lounge and Mike's place are both good places to...

There are few things that matter to me more than warm service, a clean, well designed room, and a good story. I work traveled for a decade before having my family.

Thanks for your rather poignant review of your experience in the Rattenbury Room. Not everyone takes the time to read the history piece with have of Francis Rattenbury's life framed on the wall. While he achieved so much in the world of architecture at the turn of the century, his life came to a tragic end after he was bludgeoned...

I stayed here with my partner as part of a plot to ask her hand in marriage. Ryan, Lorelei and team went above and beyond to ensure the lead up to the night was smooth and the night itself, incredible. Such a beautiful hotel allowing us to have the complete Nelson feel! Thanks again team!

Hey great to hear, Mark. We are so happy that she said YES and that everything went smoothly for you two. I'd still love to meet you in person one of these days. What a great photo you took on our newly carpeted staircase. We appreciate the positivity.

Even under construction, what a lovely spot to stay. Nelson is an annual trek for my best friend Jill and me. For the last twenty years, Jill and I make the trek to shop the constantly changing stores on the main drag. We drive up from Spokane and walk the shops which change based on the exchange rate of the...

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.

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...
