In our most recent foray to Nelson, we enjoyed the "old world" ambiance of the Library Lounge, the quiet background live music, and the excellence service. The staff all were friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable about their menu items. We thought the food was very well...More

Lovely hume hotel. The food is ok. The cabbage rolls and borscht are excellent. With so many great restaurants in Beautiful Nelson this is not a first pick.

Nice surroundings for a restaurant, Staff were great food was fine, On a minus note table near the main entrance to be avoided as you feel as though you are not quite in the room, also it is susceptible to draughts from the automatic doors...More

The dinner was quite nice with good food and good service. We enjoyed salmon and Halibut which was both done very well. The wine list is ok but not that extensive. The decor of the restaurant is quite unique and comes from a different time....More

Our hotel guaranteed that we would love this restaurant. It was good but not great. The ambiance was very nice for sure and the food reasonably tasty. I was very surprised that my main course was served before my soup, and there was no offer...More

The Library Lounge has a good menu and is a great place to hang with friends if you want a cozy place where you can converse. Many times there is live music which makes a great place even better. Would definitely recommend.

You can go to the Hume Hotel website and there is a section called Menus. It is the same menu for all departments within the hotel!

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.
