The hotel has been remodelled and has maintained the character of it's 116 year old history while providing very modern rooms and bathrooms. We stayed in the Ladybird Suite and it was large, tastefully decorated, great bed, large very modern bathroom, and beautiful view of the old courthouse, the lake and the mountains. Breakfast is included and is an order...

The Ladybird Suite is without a doubt one of our best. We have just opened up a new suite right below it called the Barrister's Suite named after the decades of lawyers who have often requested this spacious 2nd Floor room to work out of as they do business at the Nelson Court House right across the street.

This hotel is really one of a kind in Neslson, BC. Wonderful rooms, great atmosphere, friendly staff and the food and service were great. The owners of the hotel have done a great job in restoring this historical land mark.

We had an excellent stay at the Hume Hotel at the beginning of July. I stayed there about 15 years ago and liked it then, but it has gotten so much better. The rooms are beautiful. Lots updates but still with character. Nice finishes all through the hotel. They spent some money and it shows. The Fairmont could take some...

Great to hear that you loved everything about the hotel. I am glad that you mentioned Richard. It is employees like him who are truly the heart and soul of this hotel. He is one of the most happy, enthusiastic people I have ever met and in his 25+ years of working here, I have still never seen him upset...

A true piece of history from the exterior to the old style lobby. We stayed in the newly renovated Rattenbury Room and it was wonderful. Great view of old architecture across the road - the only downside is that the road was Highway 3A which meant traffic was pretty constant. Fortunately the air conditioning worked well so we could cut...

This hotel is one of a kind in Nelson. Good atmosphere, clean and beautiful rooms, great food and service. Even got a free upgrade when we checked in, because the person at the desk saw that we hadnt got a aircon in the one room we had booked.

This is great to hear after the last review, Karen! Thanks for saying so. The Rapunzel Room is definitely a gem. If you do come back, I would suggest trying the Barrister's Suite next. It is on the same corner as the Rapunzel Room and we just completed it last month. It has an amazing soaker tub and much larger...

Great location in Nelson with a friendly staff. Limited on-site parking. There's a pay garage next to the hotel. Cost for an overnight in the pay garage is C$5 (time period for overnight parking ends at 6:00 am). We overnighted our car in the pay garage and moved it to a single open spot on-site just before 6:00 am. Renovated...

We are sorry to hear that you did not get a good rest. We do try to mention to our guests that we can't always guarantee quiet rooms due to our downtown location and possible bar noise. Our showroom will be featuring more live music which should not be as big of a disturbance to our rooms as electronic shows...

Just seeing the outside of this hotel does not prepare you for the inside! It is a step into Nelson history. The rich wood, the beautiful carvings, and the layout of this place just awestruck me! We had the Rapuzel suite with corner balcony windows that had views of the river and the town. The pillows were to die for!...

On a recent trip to Nelson, BC we stayed at The Hume Hotel, an historic gem in the heart of Nelson BC. Despite beautifully modern renovated rooms, the decor of lobby and bar has been pleasingly kept in a style faithful to the age of this grand dame (1898), and the walls are filled with fascinating photos of life in...

Thanks for the wonderful detailed review of our establishment and for kindly mentioning the quality of our staff and food. You are certainly right about our parking situation.

We stayed at the Hume last year (2014) and loved our stay - we stayed on the 4th floor then, and loved the room. Quiet, newly renovated and gorgeous. Separate air con units in either side of the room (two beds separated by the bathroom which is a lovely layout) and two TVs - one per bed. We stayed in...

And is old - so what!? If you don't appreciate a bit if history, then yeah, perhaps you may wish to pass. However to my way of viewing things, this hotel has been lovingly restored with excellent quiet modern rooms terrific staff in beautiful downtown Nelson! Also price reasonable - for what you get. Very pleasant stay.
