Visited Van Dyk last Wednesday evening, for a 60th birthday meal, and sadly the whole event was far below what I would have expected from the hotel. The restaurant wasn't busy, and we were show to our table immediately. We ordered wines, both red and white - the wine waiter seemed to have no idea what to do. We explained... More

Went here for a meal as we are interested in getting married here, and was not disappointed. The service was perfect and the food was sublime! The hotel itself is perfect and beautiful, and the surroundings are also nice. I genuinely cannot fault the place. Thanks for a great time!

My husband and I, my sister and brother-in-law and my nephew and girlfriend stayed here for one night. It was a Sunday and we were the only people in the hotel. Our welcome was brusque with the receptionist asking without making eye contact if my husband and I had booked a single room! Not a good start. The waitress at... More

Chose the restaurant for an anniversary celebration. We'd dined here previously and enjoyed nice food and exemplary service. However, we started the evening with champagne and both the white and rose were decidedly lacking in sparkle for the £20 plus price tag. I commented on this to the barman who said there was no way of telling how long the... More

We had our wedding breakfast and reception here, the staff were superb from start until finish, no request was too big! Food was excellent with various dietary requirements dealt with. Our wedding day was perfect, you can't fault this place.

My colleague (also friend) & I worked from the terrace for a whole day. The weather was beautiful so we enjoyed drinks throughout the day and a stunning 3 course lunch. The quality of the food, service and surroundings were all exceptional. We will be back very soon!

I was lucky enough to receive high tea for four at the hotel van Dyk as a 40th birthday present. I don't think I will eat for at least a week. It was DELICIOUS! From walking into the hotel the staff were courteous and helpful, even after we were slightly late because of the traffic. The cakes were sumptuous, and... More

Myself and my friends had been looking forward to this evening for many weeks. What a disappointment . We spent the entire evening looking at the so called mediums back , unable to hear. Talking to others outside we certainly didn't miss much as everyone we spoke to was equally disappointed , to the point where some stayed behind to... More

I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the psychic evening as we always try to make every event enjoyable for everyone, I understand that everyone who attends these evenings will be hoping for a message but understandably this is not possible, sometimes the psychic will give personal readings at the end of the night if there is...

We visited Van Dyk's Grill Room restaurant and tried their new menu. Our dishes were excellent - first rate. I had hazelnut crusted goats cheese with pickled and roasted vegetables - it was brilliant - not a combination I would have thought of but it really worked: sooooooo tasty! My other half had mushroom risotto with beetroot bhajis - again... More

A lovely restaurant, with nice food but let down by some waiting staff. Having an elderly gluten free member with us is challenging never mind having a waitress who is patronising. I was quite saddened to turn around to see 2 members of staff gossiping about her wanting gluten free chicken as that is what she had last time she... More

Please accept my sincere appologies for your experience with the staff members that were on duty when you dined with us, this is not acceptable and I will be addressing this incident today when I arrive at the hotel. The chef is always willing to accommodate any dietary requirements as you already know from your past visits. As the hotel... More
