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.

not a lot to say except the food is superb and there is super variety! Sometimes one doesn't need 50 characters just to say how great a place is.

Though we were staying at the nearby Adventure Hotel, I had already schemed drinks at the Hume. It's a historic beauty and we were lucky to land a table inside on a Tuesday night. A jazz duo added to the old world vibe and luxury. It felt like prohibition era--like we might have a horse tethered outside. We ordered pints... More

My husband booked a night out here for our wedding anniversary. When we arrive we were sat in an empty restaurant right beside a table of 14-16 people. We wanted a nice night out not constant clinking of glasses and cheering for this other couples 25th wedding anniversary. We ordered steak and prawns. I orderd medium well and my husband... More

I heard a lot of hype about this place. Both the hotel and it's restaurant. The hotel looks run down and was very stuffy. The restaurant looks and feels the same. The food on the menu was average and I had a hard time deciding. It's also grossly over priced. The staff seemed to be short when we arrived. Although... More

We stopped at the Hume hotel while we were waiting for some work to be done. We both ordered the breakfast special which was a bacon mushroom omelette with toast, hash browns and coffee for $11.00. The food came very quickly even though the restaurant was packed. It was hot and delicious. Our waitress was extremely busy but the service... More

We frequent the Hume Hotel (both the general store restaurant and the Library lounge). The food is always good (family friendly menu with lots of variety) and the service is great.

This was probably our 3rd trip to Nelson in the past 5 or 6 years. We like the City and the People there. On every trip, we've had at least one dinner at the Hume. We did this past trip (last week) as well. If anything, it is better than it has been before, and that IS saying something. The... More

I recently had an excellent breakfast in the General Store Restaurant and the food was fantastic!! Our server was very attentive and friendly, which seems typical of all staff at the Hume. I will highly recommend the Restaurant, the Library Lounge and Mike's Place Pub to all of my friends visiting or living in Nelson.
