I have stated at the Hume every year for the past 15 years and it has always been a great experience. Staff are wonderful, food is great and it is set in funky Nelson B.C. My favorite hotel. Looking forward to next year. James

Such a lovely old hotel, centrally located and full of character but with all the ammenities we needed - comfortable bed and pillows & wonderfully friendly helpful staff. If I could change one thing, it would be the shower over bath set up. A walk in shower with a higher pressure shower head would be an improvement. Including breakfast in...

Great time and great staff! Great beers on tap. Seems like the owners and staff are always trying to improve! We ate in a place in the front corner of the Hotel! Very good food. There is a night club down stairs that has live music! There is a pub upstairs which has nelson brewing on tap! Like the face...

My fiance and I came to the Hume for a little weekend get away. Neither of us had been to Nelson before and we couldn't have had a more amazing trip! The hotel staff is incredibly nice and accommodating! We found that all of the staff works together throughout each restaurant which was really nice, it seemed that we got...

You can go just as a couple. Or with the whole family. It has a very stylish design the rooms are very clean the staff is nice. You can also just go for lunch at the library or family restaurant. I would very much recommend it.

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...
