The restaurant was nice, and the food was excellent, and reasonably priced for a hotel. The room included breakfast was also definitely above average.

Sadly the room did not live up to these standards. The room was nothing special, and because of this we think it is overpriced for what it is. The room had a lack of basic amenities, which we have had in every hotel/motel we stayed in on our tour of BC.

These being no air conditioning, (this is mentioned when you book), no black out curtains which meant at 6am the room is full of light. The window blinds did little to mask the light. There was also no hairdryer, no tea and coffee facilities, no iron. Thankfully we only stayed one night.

Its on old building, the décor reflects this, that is not the problem, it’s the lack of basic facilities that was disappointing given the price.

The Martin family have this stunning Kootenay icon running like a top. All must experience the history, service and flavours of this top-notch accommodator.

My wife and I stayed at the Hume hotel for two nights during our ski trip to Nelson.

The hotel delivers on its bill as a character hotel. Our standard room was on the top floor and was quiet at night. The furnishing is styled to match the hotel's vintage and is adequate. Not really a place I would want to spend much time, but this suited our stay just fine.

Not really set up to accommodate skiers/snowboarders as there isn't really anywhere to store your equipment. You have to take it up to your room or leave it in your vehicle, but we were absolutely fine with taking it to our room where we could keep an eye on it.

There is free parking in an uncovered lot right beside the hotel.

The included breakfast was good value, with a limited hot breakfast menu. There is also a full-featured menu available for extra cost.

Overall, a solid pick in Nelson. I would definitely stay there again as a couple. Whether you choose the Hume or not, make sure you go to Mike's Place Pub in the basement of the hotel, its a great spot to apres.

Room Tip: The 4th floor rooms were quiet and are elevator accessed

Thank you for the review. I am not sure why you didn't think there was any place to store your gear as we have a fairly spacious storage locker for skis, bikes, boards, etc. on our main floor in the lobby. I am sorry if you were misinformed. We are a great choice for active guests such as skiers throughout the year largely because we can accommodate them well by taking care of these types of needs. The free breakfast is always a bonus and mid-week our kitchen opens at 6:30am so everyone can get on their way. We hope to see you again soon.

Our family of 4 had a great 3 night stay (with Dog). The large 2 queen room with breakfast was excellent value. For a historic town like Nelson its great to be in the thick of the town. We walked to shopping and dinner, biked to the beach and mountain biked some amazing trails right from the Hume Hotel. Rooms have the character of a 100+ year old hotel, not fancy but basic clean and comfortable. No AC so on a hot day rooms are warm, but have fans.
Our 11 year old's hotel food review:
Cajun wings are delicious, chocolate moose is light and chocolatey and eggs benny also gets a big thumbs up.

Mike's Place Pub is the place to be. Always great food and beverages, and the friendliest staff in town. Have a few pints in the pub or the Library Lounge and head down to the Spirit Bar for some late nite dance moves.

And Hume to Go. Hume to the Home. All the classic Hume eats (and drinks) delivered right to your door. Love this service. Can't get enough.
