My husband and I recently stayed 2 nights in the guest house. The queen bed was very comfortable and bedding very nice. Accommodation was roomy and clean. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need to cook. Front porch was lovely to sit outside and enjoy our dinner and wine.

Our first vacation in Nelson! Loved that we could walk everywhere! Our room was clean, beautiful and spacious. The room was a great value and terrific location. We will be back and look forward to staying here then as well.

Our second visit to Nelson and to the Victoria Falls Guest House and both as good as ever. Nelson is fascinating place both in terms of its setting on Lake Kootenay and with its heady mixture of frontierism and flower power. Awash with interesting stores along Main Street, a large co-operative supermarket like no other we've ever visited and a jumbo community recreation centre, there is something for everyone plus a jumping off point for touring the Selkirk mountains. Kaslo north along the lake is an absolute must. Victoria Falls Guest House fits right into the Nelson style. A traditional building split into self-contained apartments it offers the comforts of home right at the head of Main Street, making everywhere walkable. Clean, well maintained and with all mod cons we enjoyed our stay and will certainly be trying to make it back to Nelson and the Guest House before too long.

My husband, our dog & I have stayed at VF four times. It's great. Spotless. Comfortable. Character. Affordable. Within walking distance of everything. The owners are very responsive. And when you arrive, the door is open & you walk right in. It makes us fell like locals. We have visited in the winter (lots of snow), spring (it felt like summer) & fall (beautiful colours) - and we have stayed in 2 different suites. Each time was just right. We can't recommend it enough!

This was a wondeful place to stay...Cathy-Ann was soooo accommodating with us for our 5 night stay in mid May. We stayed in the Falls Suite and was quite suprised on the place regarding the cleanliness, the amenities, the BBQ, including the use of the washer and dryer and as it was so close to the downtown. I highly recommend The Victoria Falls Guesthouse and will do so, Brian S. Winnipeg, Mb.
