The most beautiful wedding

I didn't stay at the hotel for the wedding bu overnight, based on the rest of the hotel, I wish I had. We arrived at Van Dyk's at lunchtime, as the ceremony was at 13.30. It looks very unassuming as you turn onto the drive from the road, but the gardens & decking area are very pretty & made for some lovely photos.

The hotel itself is very stylishly decorated, and the staff are very helpful & polite, nothing was too much trouble. The wedding meal was absolutely beautiful, and I will be back to sample the normal daily menu.
The drinks are obviously pricier than normal, but that is to be expected in such a venue.

This was honestly one of the best weddings I have been to in a long time &, apart from the fabulous company, it was the effort put in by Van Dyk's & their staff that made it so special.

Perfect Wedding Day

We got married here in August, and it was the most perfect day. Much of this can be attributed to the wedding planners, Natalie and Angela and the amazing chef they have. We booked our wedding 8mths before, and had several meetings, mainly with Natalie. She was really helpful and seemed to understand what we wanted from the day. Angela ran most of our day and was excellent.

Venue - the room looked amazing, and we were fortunate enough to use the outside terrace for drinks and canapés, the garden may be small but it is lovely and is great for having pictures taken, yet still feeling like you are party of the party - I.e. you are not dragged to some remote location away from everyone else! The ballroom when done up is truly stunning.

The food - one of the main reasons we booked van dyks is we love going their for meals - the food on the day did not fail to disappoint. So many of our guests commented that this was the best food they had experienced at a wedding. The choice we could pick from was also very good, and the choice for the evening buffet was also good.

Service - service on the day was faultless. There is nothing further I can say on this!

Hotel rooms - I think they are all different, the bridal suite was amazing, and the other rooms we saw all looked great, all a good size and nicely furnished. Isn't we had had more time to spend in it!

Breakfast - again this did not disappoint, we had the added extra of breakfast afternoon tea style which was lovely.

If I was to describe our day I would say perfect and faultless, I would recommend this as a wedding venue to anyone.

It really annoys me when people complain about the price of drinks here - they are exactly what you expect to pay at any quality hotel!! The price of the food in the grill is very reasonable, if you want cheap drinks go to wetherspoons.

“Best Wedding”

We booked the Van Dyk Hotel for my daughters wedding reception and they did not let us down, what a fantastic day was had by all. The wedding planners were attentive and very professional keeping us informed of what was happening all day, the food was lovely and all came out together everyone was served at the same time, The reception room is beautiful. The disco was great in the evening, and as the groom was Australian there were were lots of Australian family there, so there were requests for Australian music and he played it all... It all culminated in a absolutely fantastic day for all and we are all still buzzing, best wedding I have been to in years even if I am biased! Thankyou also to the sunshine which also shone down on us all day.Thank you so much Van Dyk

Trip Advisor - “Outstanding Wedding Venue”

We got married here on the 4th April 2013. It surpassed all of our expectations. The staff were professional and very friendly at all times and made us feel very special. Angela and Natalie were exceptional. Natalie was the main wedding co-ordinater for our day and she did an outstanding job. She took care of all our guests including ones with special dietary needs. I would like to thank both Natalie and Angela for making our day run so smoothly.

We had our ceromony and reception in the ballroom. Our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was. I was on a tight budget and was allowed to bring my own flowers and cake which they displayed beautifully.

Our wedding breakfast was fantastic, the food came out quickly and hot and was a very high standard. All of our guests said it was some of the best wedding breakfast they had ever eaten. I can especially reccomend the sticky toffee pudding as it was spectacular. We had white sparkling wine as a part of our wedding package and it was very good many guest asked what make it was as it was so drinkable. Thank you to the chef and their kitchen staff. The waiter service was exemplarly. In the evening we had a hot buffet this was also very good and our home made cake was given to guests.

We stayed in the Chatsworth suite which is beautiful. My bridesmaids and I arrived at 11am straight from the hair dressers and we felt welcome and cared from from the moment we arrived.

The DJ who also came as a part of the package was brillant. He played all of the songs on our request list and was professional and friendly.

All of our friends and family were very impressed with the venue. I would not hesistate in reccomending this venue to anyone as they made our day so special.

Trip Advisor - “Stylish Hotel”

A Friday in April 2013 was the day my son and charming Daughter in Law got married, and the reception was held at Van Dyk Hotel.
It was positively perfect in every way! the room was beautifully dressed, the service faultless,food tasted delicious and presented so elegantly.
All the guests needs were catered for with a smile from Natalie.
My hotel room was stunning the bed so comfortable, nice and warm.
This is why I gave it 5 stars!
My stay was extremely enjoyable, a wonderful experience.
I can't recomend it enough.

Trip Advisor - “RW Poole”

Last week-end we had a surprise Golden Wedding party at the hotel, and from the moment we arrived to leaving two days later, the service and staff were excellent. Nothing was too much
trouble for anyone. We reserved five bedrooms which were so tastefully decorated and all with a different theme.

We ate in the private dining room which was beautifully laid out and the dinners and breakfast we were served were excellent.

The secret of this hotel is "attention to detail" and we would highly recommend this hotel; particularly if you are looking for perfection.
