Trip Advisor Review

Thank you so very much for making Lucy and Chris's Wedding Day so very special.

From the very first visit we all knew we had made the right choice.

Every detail was planned to perfection. The welcome was so very friendly and all our ideas and requests were met with helpfulness and a desire to please and with excellent alternative suggestions.

The preciseness of the planning was second to none and we all knew well in advance what to expect.

However, we had no idea how PERFECT it was going to be.
The day began in a very relaxed manner with us all feeling so special as we were getting ready.

And from the first guests arriving to the last ones leaving it was faultless.

The food and service was amazing and everyone commented on how very impressed they were.

Lucy, Chris, Oliver and Freddie couldn't have had a better start to the next part of their journey as a family.

So we would like to say a very big thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our happy family day so very special.

Many many thanks

Julie and Kevin Douglas

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY"
Six of us enjoyed a pre-Valentine's day meal and a friends Birthday on Saturday the 13th of February. The food was all excellent and served piping hot. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. We were all very satisfied and had a very relaxed and contented afternoon.

"EXCELLENT MEAL"
I took my mum here for a birthday meal and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection, the service was impeccable and the decor made the dining exxperience wonderful, will definitely return, I'm considering booking here for my looming 40th birthday!

“LOVELY PRE-VALENTINE'S DAY MEAL”
Enjoyed a lovely evening with the hubby for a Pre-Valentine's Day meal. We arrived and were shown to our seats, the staff were helpful and were quick to take our order. We ordered and our starters came, they were lovely. I had the soup which was piping hot and my hubby had the Scotch egg, he didn't want it to end. Our mains arrived, they were generous portions and we dug in straight away. We had the chilli lamb burger and the chick pea and sweet potato curry. I would definitely recommend and would definitely go back.

“Amazing Wedding Day”

Can't thank the hotel enough for making our wedding so perfect!

We got married at Hotel Van Dyk in October and from start to finish the whole day ran so smoothly with everything being just how we wanted it. I can't thank the wedding co-ordinator, Jade, who was with us throughout the day, enough for ensuring the day was just how we wanted it - really perfect in every way.

The wedding team at the hotel are amazing, both Natalie and Jade worked with us on the run up to the wedding and no question was ever too small which really put my mind at ease and helped so much in the planning process.

The wedding breakfast was amazing (one of the guests at the wedding commented on how they had been to 7 weddings this year and by far the one at Van Dyks had the best food!).

We have wonderful memories of our day which will stay with us forever and I am so pleased we chose Hotel Van Dyk for a venue.

“A Wonderful Place To Eat”

Thank you to all of our customers who provide valuable feedback on Trip Advisor, we would like to share with you a couple.

"I have lost count the number of times I have eaten at Van Dyks, and they never disappoint. The staff are friendly and the food is delicious. There is one little fault and it is little believe me. They used to have a different menu for the Bowden Restaurant with fillet steak on etc. Now they have the same menu for The Grill and The Bowden. That said I don't intend to stop going I love it there."

Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea

Today we attended at Van Dykes for afternoon tea after buying an amazon local voucher. It was great value for money and the food was excellent. There was plenty to eat and drink and I would day this was by far the best afternoon tea we have had. There was far too much food to eat all in one go, however the waitress was kind enough to wrap it up for us to take home. I would definitely recommend Van Dykes

Stayed October 2014, travelled as a couple

Our Dreams really did come true!

Our Dreams really did come true!

January 2014 saw Hotel Van Dyk launch its largest ever Wedding Promotion by giving away a complete Dream wedding package, valued at £3,995.

Promoted throughout the region, the offer was an incredible succes with over 200 entrants and record
numbers of visitors to the hotel.
Then, April arrived and the draw was made for the lucky winners.
Victoria and Peter from Worksop were drawn from the hat, a local couple who had already booked their Wedding at Hotel Van Dyk where amazed that not only had they been entered for the competition, because they had already booked their Wedding...but now they had won.
They were notified of the outcome and were both over the moon. Victoria said “This really is a ‘dream’ come true, were really delighted with our choice of Hotel Van Dyk as our Wedding venue and when we won the
competition our dreams became reality.”
Peter commented “Its the best venue in the area, the quality of the hotel, its grounds and rooms are amazing, the wedding co-ordinators are first class, people that we could trust to delivered us a truly magical day...thanks to everyone at Hotel Van Dyk...we where so happy to hold our wedding there”.
The Wedding Team at the hotel were equally as thrilled, “ It gave us an opportunity to speak to over 200 Brides and Grooms and share their expectations, the lucky couple where a delight, we really enjoyed making sure they had a perfect day”.
Hotel Van Dyk are currently planning an even larger wedding promotion, so keep a look out in the near future.

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.
