The Hume Hotel has three different food outlets to eat in that offer the same menu and a vast array of food. A family restaurant called the General Store, an intimate fireside lounge featuring live jazz called the Library Lounge or a lively, old English-style bar called Mike's Place Pub. We cook up amazing steaks, pastas, seafood, the '100 Mile Burger', sandwiches, salads and homemade desserts. We are also known for a legendary Sunday Brunch that goes from 11am - 2pm every Sunday. We are popular for our consistency, generous portions, food quality and reasonable prices all to be enjoyed in a character atmosphere that was built in 1898. There is no place like the Hume.

Never had a bad meal. ... we go there frequently (for any excuse ). Love the ambience. Love the food and Love the staff. We prefer the Restaurant area. But the Lounge is popular and cosy... (lovely old fireplace ) . There are several different sized "Group"rooms. Location is excellent in the center of town.

Our server made our dining experience wonderful. He had a contagious happiness about him and was very attentive to our every request. Even placating our kids with dinner mints when we said "no" to dessert. :)

I have a feeling I know who your waiter was...was he a furry, funny Italian guy?! He has a way with kids and people in general. Thanks for taking the time to review our restaurant BCHockeymama! More

Staying overnight at the hotel for business, total experience was much welcomed change from the norm. Every element of the stay takes you back to a time when people lived far more modestly, while still providing modern day amenities. Ambiance at the two hotel restaurants I ate in were unlike anything I've experienced in my travels, truly allowing me to... More

Hi Amit - thanks for the write-up. A lot of people mention that it is truly like stepping back in time. We just had our 117th birthday on St Patrick's Day. We hope you will stay with us again the next time you are in town. More

We would have stayed here, but the upper floors of the hotel were the ones renovated and the (only) elevator was temporarily out of commission. I have 2 new knees, so found it difficult to contemplate the stair climbing. So...we left our hotel and went to the Hume for breakfast. First of all, our server was a beautiful young woman,... More

Yes unfortunately the elevator is out of commission for a few weeks as it needs modernizing (sadly). Next time you are in town you will have to try one of our newly renovated rooms. I have shared your review with that "beautiful, young woman" that served you. She blushed with joy. We appreciate you taking the time to review us! More
