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.

Thank you Richard!!

Our waiter, Richard, was one of the best waiters that we have ever had anywhere. He was so personable and went above and beyond to make sure that we were... read more

Not well lit. Staff was all right. Food was ok. Felt like I was eating in a cave. Old building. I'd try another place before coming back. Lots of history around this place.

Yes, there are a few light switches to be found in this old hotel. The thing is, we choose to keep a few of them in the 'Off' position to add a bit more ambiance here and there. Keep in mind, we have three different eating establishments that offer the same menu. Sounds like you opted for the Library Lounge... More

We ate in the General Store restaurant with our 2 kids under 5. We were not guests of the hotel but were looking for a nicer place to eat where we didn't have to order from a counter and get our own food. We were interested initially in dining in the library, but were told the General Store was their... More

Our semi annual trips to Nelson typically include a visit here. The food is always delicious, and fast (great if you have kids). The atmosphere is perfect for families. Staff are friendly and take a genuine interest in all their customers. See you next trip!

We enjoyed breakfast in this hotel dining room. Great choices unique to the area, and great coffee. The ambiance is comfortable and reminds me of eating at Grandmas house.

We are lucky to have MJ continuing to manage and serve in the Library Lounge. She can handle that full room at lunch hour by herself with grace and a smile consistently. Thanks for the wonderful review. I will surely share it with her and the rest of the Hume crew. More

We usually go here at least once every time we visit Nelson. This time was pretty much like all other visits. The service was fast and friendly and the food was freshly made and tasted great.
