My partner and I( he works once every few months in Nelson and Trail) stay here when in the Kootneys. Great hotel with fantastic amenities and right in the centre of what this cute charming town has to offer! As many people describe, the hotel has TONNES of charachter and the owners have done extensive renovations, and it's refelcted in the details! The rooms are large and have very nice bathrooms.
The greatest thing I think, is you have many different options to dine: the pub(the best), the library bar and the main dining room(forget the name). The food is amazing! It's elevated pub food, but it's seriously good, with big portions! Great beer offerings and surprising wine list!! Stay here for sure! Nelson is such a funky, charming, fun place! Love it!

Room Tip: Not above the pub, other than that, the hotel doesnt have any bad rooms!

We've stayed at the Hume a few times when travelling through this region of the interior. I love the heritage and the ambiance. It's downtown and walking distance to everything Nelson's downtown has to offer.

The hotel is at the end of a 12 year renovation and the results are simply magnificent! There isn't anything about the building or rooms that doesn't feel new, spotless, and upscale while still presenting as authentic; the hotel managed to stay true to its roots. The food is wonderful with a varied enough menu to make decisions a challenge and the spa is absolutely lovely. Staff is excellent, genuinely friendly and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. Booking directly with the hotel instead of online will possibly save you some money - call first! The only thing that is a slight issue is the shortage of parking spaces making it potentially necessary to park in the next block and feed a 2 hour meter during city business hours (9 am - 5 pm). That being said, parking is an issue for all establishments in this downtown area, particularly when the Baker St. Market is happening, and this slight inconvenience would not be a factor that would prevent me from staying at the hotel on a next visit to Nelson.

What a beautiful hotel this is! The location is perfect being close to everything but not in the middle of everything. It can get a bit loud at nite bc it's close to a main road and there's a bar on the main floor so bring your ear plugs if that will keep you up. The hotel itself has a rich history having been there for about 100 yrs and all over the hotel are little plaques providing historical details. We stayed in the Barrister suite which is stately, elegant, spacious and romantic. Your room includes hot breakfast in their restaurant which is delicious and in Sundays brunch is offered until 2pm which a wide range of breakfast and lunch offerings. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again!

We are happy to hear that you loved everything. We are nearing the end of a twelve year renovation project and are really happy with how everything has turned out. It is, without a doubt, a character property and a unique stay. Thanks for choosing the Hume.

To break up the long stretch from Fernie back home to Kelowna we stayed a night in the Hume hotel in picturesque Nelson BC.
The hotel is nicely situated just down from Baker St where lots of shops and eateries are located. The hotel room was average.
After touring downtown Nelson we settled for dinner in the Pub. The pub was quite nice and we partook of the drink specials for the evening, mimosas and caesars. The Dublin burger I had was very good. The ravioli, maybe a bit heavy. The surprise was the cauliflower wings, light tasty with our choice of sauce, sweet chili.
The breakfast, included in the hotel room price was a just average buffet of scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, some baked products. All in all an ok stop but not memorable.

It was my pleasure, Cecelia. I am glad that it all worked out and you were able to experience the hotel with your son. I hope you had a fun day on Kootenay Lake. If you are ever through this way again, be sure to look us up!

Historic hotel that had been completely renovated. Oozes charm. Rooms are on the small side, but very comfortable. Staff are friendly and services are good. Excellent cook to order breakfasts included in price.
Music from the bar is loud, and we can hear it all the way up in the top floor. Fortunately, this only happens on Friday nights, and it is quiet after midnight.

Room Tip: Rooms on top floor are quieter.
