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.

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.

I ate steak, the rest of the family had awesome hip of beef. Next time it's Hip of Beef all round! Food, staff, surroundings in this beautiful, well kept, old style signature Hotel, excellent. Forget the steak.

I'm really glad that you enjoyed everything. We agree - visitors must try at least one meal here when they come to town. It's like going for at least one coffee at Oso Negro. A visit to the Hume is a must-see part of your visit to Nelson. One of these days you will have to check out our new... More

Our friends joined us in the Library. Loved the atmosphere, decor and gentle jazz musician. Salads and breads were great, but we were a little disappointed in the prime rib special. It seems that there were no differences in rare to well done and the prime rib was not what we anticipated from this restaurant. However, it was a fun... More

I am sorry that we did not impress you more with our Prime Rib Dinner special. It has been a main stay here as a weekend special for years. We must have had an off night. I hope this hasn't shaken your confidence too much and you give us another try in the future. I know we can do a... More

A group of friends and I visited Nelson and read the great reviews of the Hume Hotel and decided we would go and check it out. All five of us ordered different menu items and ALL of us absolutely loved our dishes. The restaurant was adorned with antique furniture, bookshelves and old fashioned portraits which really gave the restaurant a... More

Hi Josh. Thanks for the kind words and I'm glad you loved the Library Lounge. There is no ambiance quite like it anywhere. The live musicians play from Sunday through Thursday and it definitely sets us apart. Nelson has so many talented musicians - it's an honour to have them play here. Next time leave yourself time for another day... More

We had a meal at Mike's Place Pub and thought it was great. The 100 Mile Burger was really one of the best hamburgers I've ever had. I'm not usually one for dark beers, but I tried the NBC Faceplant Organic Ale and loved it!

The Library restaurant has a fun 1890s bordello decor, a cosy fireplace, pleasant food, and live music on some evenings. have eaten here many times, usually at lunch time, and enjoy in particular the quiche -- something different every day. They are even accommodating enough to make the type you especially like if you ask the day before. Service is... More

Thanks for the mostly positive review! I'm not exactly sure what 'slightly offbeat atmosphere' refers to but we will take a 4 star rating any day...thanks for taking the time to describe the quality of our F&B operation. The restaurant, lounge and pub are definitely worth a look when you are in Nelson. More

Historic, VERY clean, conveniently located in the heart of downtown Nelson, BC. Great staff, comfortable bed. Though I prefer smaller, lower profile pillows.

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.
