Welcome to the Dominion Hotel Pub.

The Dominion Hotel has been the “Hot Spot” in downtown Minden since it first started providing food, drink, entertainment and accommodation to travellers and locals in 1865. It is one of the oldest businesses in this county and one of the oldest continually operating hotels in the whole country. Indeed, this business predates Canada as it was opened two years before Confederation.

Whether you’re looking for a healthy pub lunch, a cold drink on the patio, or a quiet dinner in the dining room, the Dominion Hotel is known for fresh, healthy, homestyle cooking. The Dominion Hotel is the home of the best handmade burgers in the county and folks drive miles for the beer battered Fish and Chips with a beer batter using their
Dominion 1865 Lager.

The “D” is considered Haliburton County’s Home of Live Music hosting numerous live performances throughout the year.

Accommodations at the Dominion Hotel are quite luxurious and quiet. Each suite has flat screen TVs, wireless internet and the most comfortable beds in the business. Fluffy cotton towels, a fridge, microwave and Keurig coffee maker and non allergic pillows and duvets will help ensure a relaxing stay.

Family Friendly, great food, fun times and the ‘Home of Live Music’ - that’s the Dominion Hotel in a nutshell. Off street parking available. Drop in and check your email. We’re an internet hotspot. Call us at 705 286-6954. Order online, reserve a table or book an overnight room online at
