“Love the Hume!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

Love the Hume. I stay there every time I'm Nelson for both business and pleasure. It's affordable, clean and in the perfect location. Not mention Mike's Place Pub is a great place to enjoy the local micro-brewery Nelson Brewing Company. I'll be back!

I came to Nelson for Business but stayed at the Hume for pleasure! It may not be a place where you are looking for a quaint get away...that would be the Best Western down the road...But if you are looking for an affordable place to crash while you hit the hills in the day and cut loose at night this would be it! The Hume is family owned and you can tell, very nice and professional service by people who have worked for the Hume for a long time. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome.

Mikes pub is a great pub tastefully celebrating the History of Nelson and some subtle homage to the family who have been running the Hotel for a few generations. Great place to catch a game or to get stoked for riding by watching Ski and snowboarding vids..Food is not half bad for pub grub and very affordable.

I am usually not one for Clubs, but the spirit bar was a blast...they get some great bands and Djs rolling through and i can not stress enough how refreshing it was to go a night club where everyone was there to have a good time...No roid monkeys, douche-bags, Gangsters and worst of all Wanna be Gangstas! Excellent sound system and the owners have really tried, and succeeded in bringing a classy club experience.

The one comment I can say is the bar and night club does reverberate through the hotel, but it's over 100 years old what do expect...and besides it reminds you that you should be downstairs enjoying like everyone else.

We stayed for 4 nights on a ski trip and enjoyed the Hume. Good location in town and big rooms and very good breakfast. Only complaint was that our room was right over Mike Pub so it was really noisy. Could be worth asking when you reserve for a quieter room. Our room was #343.

Work has required me to stay up to 60 nights a year for the last 17 years at the Hume. That gives me an unparralleled perspective of the day -to-day and year -to -year operations taking place in this truly fine establishment. Their standard for customer servce and satisfaction has never wavered. We are talking about a dedicated staff throughout the operation from housekeepng to kitchen to front desk to barkeeps. Outstanding! A trip to Nelson without experiencing the quality and quaintness of this hotel would be most unfortuunate ; akin to hitting San Francisco and not enjoying Fisherman's Wharf. The place simply has a lot to offer. And if you get the chance, partake in the Sunday Brunch! Enjoy.

Room Tip: Front Desk is extremely helpful. Let them know exactly what you need.

Yes , this hotel is charmingly old but that is the main thing it has going for it . We stayed in a twin room on the second floor . On the plus sode the room was very large. On Saturday night the music from the nightclub reverberated till 2 am following by another hour of noise by the lingering crowd . Other nights were better but still lots of noise from the corridor . The floorboards are so squeaky you can't go to the bathroom without waking your roommate . Breakfast is included but best avoided unless you like washing down oily eggs with terrible coffee . I recommend the Tea bags with toast and jam . Overall we found the hotel diss appointing and overated on TripAdvisor .

We are sorry that we came up short on your expectations. Many customers comment that the original floorboards, which definately do squeak, is part of the heritage charm and something that sets us apart from many of the other bland corporate chains out there. The free full hot breakfast is also one of the biggest selling points. It is not your usual stale muffins and powdered eggs that you most often see. As far as the noise goes, we do not guarantee quiet rooms on the weekends and are always up front with our guests about that. If you want a corporate chain hotel that can guarantee quiet, we recommend the newly renovated Best Western PLUS Baker Street Inn which is currently ranked #1 on Tripadvisor. You would not find that they are overrated and well-deserving of their rating.

We appreciate your honest feedback. Thanks for taking the time to share your experience on Tripadvisor.
