Hume Hotel

Hume Hotel

Overview Formerly known as the Heritage Hotel, the Hume Hotel provides a step back in time. Established in 1898, the hotel is now an enchanting landmark of Nelson. The hotel has many heritage touches with plenty of antique furnishings, some of which are Victorian or art deco, whilst other decorations are just an eclectic mix of kitsch and quirky. Regardless of your taste in décor, the Hume Hotel is incredibly charming and welcoming. The laid-back yet professional friendliness of the staff is quintessentially BC.

Where is the Hume Hotel? The Hume Hotel is in Vernon St, in the heart of the town of Nelson. Nelson is in the southeast corner of British Columbia, Canada, in the Kootenay region. Whitewater ski resort is nearby, and the region is home to many cat skiing and heli ski operators.

Hume Hotel Rooms Don’t be fooled by the sloping floors as you walk down the corridors and wonder whether the hotel rooms will be dodgy. This certainly isn’t the case, as the rooms are tastefully decorated and ooze character and charm. Even though the rooms have historical furnishings, they also have modern touches such as a phone, TV and wireless internet access. And you needn’t fear that the beds are from the early 1900s.

All 43 rooms at the Hume Hotel are unique, but there are standard rooms with one or two beds as well as more spacious rooms. The pièce de résistance is the Rapunzel room which is dubbed as the honeymoon suite.

Facilities and Dining After getting home from a hard day skiing, it can be incredibly tempting not to venture outside in the evening. One of the good things about the Hume Hotel is that you don’t have to. In addition to a liquor store, day spa and hair salon, there are multiple on-site options for dining and drinking.

The Library provides a lounge setting for a quiet drink or formal dining. It has amazing décor including old rugs, upholstered chairs and fabric hung ceilings. On the weekends, live jazz music adds to the quiet ambience. The inexpensive menu is very extensive and includes steaks, burritos and the Italian special. The General Store Restaurant has the same menu, but is more suited to family dining. The pub, Mike’s place, also has the same menu, but is much more festive and has pool tables and big screen TVs. Or there’s the Spirit Bar, a nightclub.

And if you do want to venture outside, the Baker St restaurants and bars are only a hop, skip and a jump away.

Why Stay at the Hume Hotel? The Powderhounds chose to stay at the Hume Hotel because of a strong recommendation from friends. After staying at the hotel, the powderhounds were not disappointed and the accommodation lived up to the high expectations that had been set. The hotel has historic grandeur without being posh or stuffy. And the elegance comes at a price that is very inexpensive.

Step Back in Time; A Wonderful Experience

POWDERHOUNDS.COM24/07/2010
The Hume Hotel in Nelson is a fabulous historic hotel.

I must admit that we are always a bit dubious about what the condition might be like for such an old hotel and we pleasantly surprised by how well maintained this hotel was. It featured many original fittings and fixtures with loads of dark polished timber throughout the building making you feel like you had just stepped back in time.

The restaurant in the old library served simple food however the quality was way beyond what you would expect for the cost of it.

If you like to party it up a bit, the Hume Hotel also has a pub / sportsbar which also has its own restaurant. If that isnt enough, there is also a third restaurant which has a bit more of a cafe feel to it however serves the same food as the old library restaurant.

Location wise, it is pretty much one block from the heart of Nelson where there are plenty more fabulous restaurants and bars to choose from all within a short walk.

Powderhounds gives the Hume Hotel the big thumbs up!
