Review August 2019

Rod Stewart tribute night

I attended the Rod Stewart tribute night at Van Dyk hotel with friends on Friday evening. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the venue is beautiful. It was a lovely meal and the tribute act was brilliant. Fantastic night and great value for money

Rod Stewart Tribute meal night.

This is my first time to a showtime event and it certainly won't be my last, the three course meal was fabulous and the staff are so professional served so quickly, the entertainment was a Rod Stewart tribute Act and I've actually seen the real rod this year and he sounded actually the same he was fantastic.The Disco afterwards was really good, all in all had a fantastic night and would definitely recommend to my family and friends, you will have a fabulous night. At the Van Dyks.

Review August 2019

We attended my nephew's wedding and it was superbly hosted by this hotel. They were so very accommodating to myself and my wheelchair bound mother. We should have been staying here with all the family but sadly the new extension which would have provided a disabled access room wasn't ready so we stayed elsewhere. And the wedding food was amazing too!

Review August 2019

We have just returned home to Gibraltar after an absolutely fabulous 4 nights at Van Dyks. We came over for our daughters wedding which was all arranged in Van Dyks and I can honestly say the whole day was faultless. There were a few hiccups prior to the wedding due to the New Build not being ready in time, but again the lovely team came together to ease the bride and grooms fears and I’m so glad they chose to have it all in the original building, it was absolutely stunning and so well prepared. The staff were fantastic, the rooms were beautiful and the food was superb.
We stayed in the Westminister suite which was spotless and very comfortable and obviously my daughter and new Son in law stayed in the bridal suite, it was stunning, absolutely perfect for the newly weds.


We also had breakfast on three of the mornings we were there, always greeted with a smile and even a wee song this morning, but the breakfast was consistently delicious we didn’t steer any further than the Derbyshire to be fair, but hey when in Derbyshire it has to be done right?

Thank you so much to all the team at Van Dyks for such a beautiful stay, but more than that you gave my daughter and her husband the day of their dreams it was perfect.

Review August 2019 by Mr. & Mrs. Dannatt

We had our wedding planned in Van Dyk's since April 2018, Originally planned into the new extension, but unfortunately we were notified this was not going to be ready in time and was given the option to move into the existing building which we did. Van Dyk's couldn't have apologised anymore and they went above and beyond to make our day as special as it could be.


As we understand it, Beth our wedding planner took over from the previous wedding team and for a time was dealing with all the complications due to the buiding work and planning of weddings on her own. Everytime we met with Beth she was lovely and couldn't do enough for us and helped to put our minds at rest.


On the actual day we had Lauren looking after us who was also lovely, very proffesional and always asking if everything was ok and if there was anything we needed.


So we would like to say a special Thank you to both Beth and Lauren for all their help in making our day amazing.
We had the bridal suite as part of the package and it was truly beautiful and our guests that also stayed in the hotel all said the rooms were comfortable and had a lovely stay. The breakfast was very welcome and plenty of choice right up to the full Derbyshire, absolutely lovely. The staff were all super friendly, helpful and served us with a smile.


Our wedding was amazing from start to finish, every detail maticulously planned and it flowed so smoothly. The food was fantastic and served all in record time and piping hot. Can not describe how nice the sticky toffee pudding was.


All we have to say is a massive Thank you to all the staff at Van dyk's for making our day the best we coud have hoped for. I would thouroughly recommend this beautiful venue to any future Bride and Groom, you won't be dissapointed and we will definately be booking one of the new rooms and spa in the future.


Thank you again so much.

Amazing wish I could give it more than five stars. Best burger and chips I’ve ever had.

Review 16th February 2019 by Steven

The Dyk classic burger was one of the best burgers I have ever tasted, it was full of flavour and the chips were excellent. They were definitely fresh and home made, I will be ordering from here again.

Well pleased with the meal and when you have a toddler it makes birthday meals a lot easier. 5 starts for Van Dyks.

Review 4th May 2019 by Mr Keith Brown

Restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and is beautifully decorated. Range of food on offer is great and the loyalty discount they offer makes the whole experience really good value for money. We dined on a Thursday at 7pm and the service was excellent.

Review 26th April 2019 by Stuart

Just love the place, wish we could visit more often. The food for me is far superior to the usual pub grub on offer elsewhere. Far from being a snob, I find the place as an ambiance that makes it feel a little special.

We enjoyed the ambiance of the room and the food was excellent. It is unusual to find somewhere with such an extensive Vegan menu.
