Wedding!
Venue Service

By Lauren and Simon, on 29 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Apr 2019

We had our wedding here on Sunday 14th April 2019. We had the best day we could have wished for and a huge thank you must go to Beth and the wedding team at this venue! They did an amazing job and nothing was too much trouble. All of our guests commented on the amazing food that was served for the wedding breakfast and also the lovely new décor in the building. If we could do it all over agin, we would still pick Hotel Van Dyk every time!

Wedding of the year!!!!

By Dan and Chris, on 29 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Apr 2019

We had our wedding here on the 7th April 2019. The hotel was absolutely brilliant. They are still having building work on the new hotel, but that didn't detract from our day. From start to finish the staff excelled. From bar to reception and housekeepers nothing was ever too much. The wedding coordinators worked efficiently to ensure all our needs were met and more. The ballroom was stunning and the hotels suppliers are fantastic (designs by Daykin and notts djs) we put a lot of trust in everyone and they delivered!!!! the best is what we got. From the bottom of our hearts....thank you!!! Dan and chris

Beautiful Wedding Venue

By Chloe and Tom, on 13 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 31 Mar 2018

Tom and I held our wedding ceremony and reception here on Saturday 31st March 2018 and were not disappointed! We had our ceremony in the Bowden Suite and wedding breakfast and evening disco in the Ballroom. From the very start where we first met with Michelle the wedding and events manager enquiring about wedding packages and availability Van Dyk couldn't have been more attentive! This continued throughout our future meetings and visits to the open evenings and wedding fares Van Dyk offer to the public. Michelle and her team were organised, friendly, helpful and the attention to detail was impeccable. It really shows how much the team love what they do! We saw Michelle as our friend and enjoyed getting to know her. The day ran smoothly and on time, nothing was rushed. The team serving food and drink were friendly and professional, the room was decorated to perfection and the food was simply delicious. Our guests commented on the quality of the food to us!! We could not fault anything about the day! The well kept grounds provided lovely areas for photographs, even though the weather was not so much on our side but did brighten up in the early afternoon! We also had some lovely photographs captured within the hotel too. We stayed the night in the honeymoon suite which was well kept and luxurious, our parents and close family members stayed at the hotel too and said that the rooms were lovely as too was the breakfast! We would highly recommend this hotel as a fabulous wedding venue. Michelle and her team created a stress free, very special day for us with memories we will treasure for a lifetime. Thank you Hotel Van Dyk for making our special day perfect! We shall be back soon!

Fabulous wedding reception venue
Venue Service

By Amy&Mark, on 10 Aug 2013

Me and my hubby had our wedding reception here on 1 June 2013 and were not disappointed! From the very start when we were merely enquiring about our booking Natalie (wedding coordinator) couldn't have been more attentive! This continued right up until the actual day- very impressed! She was organised, friendly and had a great attention for detail. The day ran smoothly and on time. The girls serving cocktails and food were friendly and professional, the room was decorated to perfection, the food-oh my goodness where do I start...AMAZING...especially the duck starter, beef and Yorkshire puddings-all our guests commented on the quality of the food to us!! We could not fault anything about the day! Our parents and a few other guests stayed at the hotel and said that the rooms were lovely as too was the breakfast! We would highly recommend this hotel as a fabulous wedding venue. The hotel is nicely decorated and well maintained, the staff are attentive, the food is very good and the grounds whilst relatively small provide a great backdrop for photos! Thank you Hotel Van Dyk for making our special day perfect! We shall be back for food soon! :)

Stunning top class venue.
Venue Service

By Sherrell & Rob Bannister, on 13 Jun 2013

We originally picked Hotel Van Dyk due to on-line recommendations and the fact they only hold one wedding per day. We did not want our day to feel part of a production line. I knew we made the right choice after our first meeting with Angela & Natalie. From the very start they were professional & courteous, not raising an eyebrow with some of the wacky things I wanted. We had a taster meal that helped us decide our wedding breakfast. The day itself went perfect, run in a professional & friendly manor. The room for the ceremony was just stunning, we were married in the ballroom. They helped source tablecloths to match my colour scheme to make sure it was just as i wanted it. The wedding breakfast itself was divine, every guest commented on the quality. No cold food, they did well with serving 65 guests. The day flowed perfect we had a evening buffet for 150 & a dessert buffet. Again the food was gorgeous! Oh we opted for bottles of grolsch as welcome drinks as I thought that's what my guests would prefer these were also followed by the most tasty canapés ever! The bridle suite is very lush! Even the breakfast next day was gorgeous! Every detail was perfect & what we wanted. I would highly recommend this hotel as a wedding venue to anyone. We will be returning for both meals and hopefully the odd night stay! Thank you all for the hard work!
