The “eh Team” at The Adventure Hotel

I arrived on the shores of Kootenay Lake in Nelson, British Columbia, Canada seeking history, adventure, culture and scenery. It just happens Nelson is rich in all four. Lucky for me and lucky for many of you.

Our accommodation during this visit to Nelson – The Adventure Hotel – is located in the heart of Downtown Nelson. Ironic don’t you think? We love adventure and we are staying in The Adventure Hotel for the next two days. A perfect location for starting my first adventure – walking the streets of historic Nelson.

I checked into my room, unloaded my gear and hit the streets fast and hard. I walked up one street and down another, bisecting my journey with back alleys and side streets along the way. During my exploratory walk I took photos of everything and I ventured into many shops of culture decorated with art, crafts, jewelry and sculptures. One shop, operated by a local artist caught my attention enough that I treated myself to a leather bracelet. Now, I live with Nelson on my wrist every day.

“I arrived back at The Adventure Hotel and, as always, I was greeted with smiles and warm hospitality by the front desk. “

I then meandered my way back to my room and immediately set up shop in my accommodation. My room is advertised as a Budget Room. It was furnished with a bunk bed (option available for a double bed), side table and lamp, television, wi-fi and a desk looking out over the waterfront and across the roof tops of buildings. My bathroom was a 2 piece (sink & toilet) and down the hall there was a shared shower.

All rooms are of a European style. Because there are various types of rooms it is important to ask when confirming your booking what amenities are included. Why? Because if you want to access to certain services like the gym and sauna you better find out if it is included with your room.
