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.

Great vibe, service and pasta

We went there on a busy Friday night. Got a table in the library, the restaurant was full. After we ate we met friends and moved upstairs to the pub. We all had pasta, it was very good.

The Hume Hotel has a couple of restaurants downstairs and Mike's upstairs. Mike's is where a lot of the locals go on the weekends for dinner and/or drinks (it's one of the 2 main pubs in town). Food is good, well priced and large servings. You can watch sport on the TVs, play pool or darts. Good for a casual... More

The food is always consistently good, never had a bad meal. I live in Nelson so I've never stayed in any of the rooms but I have visited friends in there's and they are beautiful.

We returned twice as the food was good and the value was great. The service was quick and we also enjoyed the atmosphere. As we ate earlier than most diners at 6:00 PM there was not a lot of noise.

mediocre food in resturant, served by uncaring staff. I thought the food Chicken cordon blue and fries was over cooked and the salad was not fresh ingredients. On a positive note the decor was historical.

Ryan M, General Manager at Hume Hotel, responded to this review

You kind of lost me at 'uncaring staff'. This is not the case and the reviews tell a different story. Our staff are simply awesome. We could have got you another meal if you weren't happy. If the meal was sub par, we apologize. I am glad that you enjoyed the historical decor. More

Great place to go to meet friends in Mikes Place Pub, take the family to the Restaurant, or sit in the lounge and share an appetizer with your partner in front of the fireplace. Great atmosphere for Superbowl

Superbowl was a great time. Too bad about the ending. Thanks for coming into the pub and chowing down that spaghetti at halftime. Hope to see you next year. More

Ryan M, General Manager at Hume Hotel, responded to this review

We are sorry to hear this, Margaret. All of our salad greens and vegetables come in fresh and are chopped daily. I am not sure how this could have been soggy. This is the first time I have heard that salmon tastes yucky. Thanks for giving us a try - there are lots of other good restaurants for you in... More

My husband and I were married in August 2014 at Blaylocks mansion just outside of Nelson. From the outset, Greg and the whole team at the Hume Hotel were very helpful and reassuring that everything would turn out perfectly. In fact, it turned out even better than we had envisioned. The Hume Hotel had a great selection of menu items... More

Description

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.
