We have just celebrated my husband's 40th birthday in the Bowden restaurant. We can't thank the staff enough including Angela, Natalie and the Restaurant Manager. The food was superb, beautifully presented and offered excellent value for money - service second to none. We'll definitely go back!

We cannot praise everyone enough, fantastic,amazing,wonderful etc.The reception team, bar and waiting on staff, they could not do enough for us. Compliments to the chef and all the kitchen team,the food and service was first class, thanks guys.

We went today to one of my mother's favourite restaurants at the Van Dyke Hotel. She had mentioned many times she'd like to treat the family and so this was a return visit for her and a new experience for us.

The Hotel itself is beautifully maintined, smart, elegant with comfortable nooks and crannies in receptions. We were shown to our table promptly. The menu provided a fair selection from sandwiches for those wanting a snack to full meals for those needing something more. Between us we had a good range of choices and all, when presented back at the table, were first class.

Food was cooked perfectly. It was tasty and delightfully presented.

When it came to the bill I was shocked - but pleasantly so. Our meal was more than reasonable givent the quality of both food and service. I would also award the staff 5 gold stars for service.

Overall our family meal turned into a very pleasing experience. Definitely go there again!

Room Tip: Avoid the rush at 13:00

Took my parents there for lunch. The food was excellent - taste, flavours, everything. The portions were generous too. The decor and ambiance was first class and the service could not be faulted. In fact, it was the best dining experience I've had in a long term and it surpassed many other, more expensive, meals out

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Hotel van Dyk on 19/05/2012 and can not reccommend the place enough. Our wedding co-ordinator, Angela is a credit to the hotel.

Our wedding was 18 months in the planning and throughout we felt confident and relaxed due to Angela's organised, professional and personable approach. The day itself was perfect, it was the wedding of our dreams. The room was beautifully laid out, the food was out of this world and all of the staff were friendly and efficient.

We can not thank you enough, all our guests were very complimentary - anyone looking for a wedding venue, do not look any further!

A very happy Mr and Mrs Jarvis-Hook

My daughter and now son-in-law held their wedding reception at Van Dyk Hotel in July. Such an amazing day from the canapes through to the evening buffet and onwards. Nothing was too much trouble for Natalie and her colleagues. All my daughter's requests from previous meetings were catered for and all our guests commented on the amazing wedding breakfast The function room was beautifully laid out and it really was an beautiful day.
Thank you to Natalie and everyone at Van Dyk Hotel who made this such a wonderful experience.

A late review due to illness but what a wonderful wedding this hotel managed for my daughter in June. I had misgivings at first but she had set her heart on Van Dyk's and it didn't disappoint. Nothing went wrong on the day. The wedding co-ordinators were quietly efficient, the food was excellent and the room looked amazing. The bedrooms are all individually decorated in sumptuous style which may not be to everyone's taste but they are comfortable with huge beds and no expense has been spared. All the guests had nothing but praise for the food, the ceremony room and the reception room and everyone particularly enjoyed the DJ. Thank-you Van Dyk you made it a wedding to remember.

Room Tip: The Haddon is sumptuously decorated, and the bed is large and comfortable.
