Description: The Library Lounge is at the heart of the Hume Hotel. Located just off the front lobby, The Library has a cozy, parlour-like atmosphere with a replica of the original Hume Hotel bar (complete with brass) polished and prepped for your visit. Caryatids and original moldings decorate the interior, as does the original monumental brick hearth and fireplace that warms the room. Full restaurant meal service is offered, as are a selection of wines, beer and spirits to complement the live jazz and other music featured nightly.

I decided to eat at 'The Library' a cozy little room with tons of character and a great menu. MJ took excellent care of me and my food was delicious! (I was also eyeing some of the other plates going out - looked yummy). Toured the hotel as well and can't wait to get back there for the warm friendly atmosphere- a great mix of modern and vintage! Thanks to the whole staff for a wonderful visit :)

M.J. is the best employee and grad date I could ever ask for (We have known each other since grade 4). It's a treat to work alongside her five days a week. We all adore her.

It was great to meet you Kenton. I enjoyed showing you around this old place. Don't ever forget, there's no place like Hume.

The Hume Hotel serves excellent food in all of their outlets. The food is always consistent, reasonably priced and served by well trained staff. The pub atmosphere in Mike's Place is great. The remodelled rooms are very comfortable and the Hotel staff are very attentive and courteous.
We would certainly recommend this property.

Sat at the bar at Mike's to have a coupl beers and good food (and to people watch!) the sweet potato fries with chipotle mayo was really good. They serve a lot of Nelson Brewing Company beer which has some very nice selections. The Hanoi Halibut was a great Asian prep for the fish, served with a chili sauce. The pork tenderloin with mushroom gravy was cooked perfectly. For a great dessert, try the Bacio Nero (mocha ice cream with a hard chocolate coating. If you feel decadent, ask for a shot of amaretto to pour over it!

Have ate at the restaurant at the Hume Hotel and at Mike's Pub several times and it's pretty decent at an average price - not spectacular just fairly wholesome food at a reasonable price - nothing exotic - service is average...Mike's Pub has three levels - usually workers on the bottom - teachers - lawyers execs in the middle and younger crowd and hippie types on the top ...that's the diversity - 'cos it's not in the food...
