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.

Recently my husband and I spent Christmas in Nelson visiting our Boys and stayed at the Hume Hotel for the entire time. We had a fabulous time and enjoyed the comfort of what the Hume Hotel has to offer. Excellent full hot breakfast included in our stay with excellent staff who were personable and friendly. Our accommodation was first rate,... More

We go to the Hume Hotel Restaurant more or less every time we're in town visiting the inlaws. This is their favorite place to eat. I personally have yet to have a great meal here. The food is okay and pretty much every thing I've had here has been VERY salty. They have a few gluten free options which is... More

We are sorry you aren't into the menu and that you find things salty. There are many other great restaurants in town that you may like better. I am glad that you think our ambience is 'old school' as that is totally the theme we are embracing being a 117 year old historic property. We aren't trying to be trendy... More

Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stir fry. On the wintery nights, delivery gets very busy and it is hard to guarantee that it will be as fresh as if you had eaten here. We try to take things off the Delivery Menu that do not travel well. Things like nachos, steaks and other items that can... More

I have always had excellent breakfast at the Hume. It is the only time of day I seem to make it there when in Nelson. The food is fresh, hot, generous and delicious. Atmosphere is great.

I just came from the hotel bar (Mikes place). I ordered Fetuccini Alfredo and got a plate with about half pound of a fatty-oily bad seasoned pasta. Not even cooked with fresh garlic. So bad. I couldn't eat that thing but what suprised me is nobody cared. Nobody asked me how it was the food despite the plate was full.... More

Sorry you did not enjoy your Fetuccini Alfredo. It is one of the bigger selling pastas we have so perhaps the kitchen was having an off day. As a manager, I can tell you that we encourage all servers to do a quality check on their tables. I will remind the crew to always do so. Had you mentioned that... More

I have been enjoying the Library Lounge in the Hume Hotel for many many years. It is always excellent. If they offer the Prime Rib special at lunch - jumb all over it. It is great.
