We got married here on September 1st and honestly couldn’t think of a better place to do so!!! The venue was absolutely beautiful and the staff were amazing! They ran the day great and was always on hand for anything we needed! Our guests couldn’t speak more highly of the venue and if we could do it all again we would do it everytime at Van Dyk! Debbie and her team were so hands on in making my day perfect! Food was absolutely stunning, the guests commented on how many canapés there were as they had never seen so many!! Everything was just how we wanted it to be! Dj was great at playing our requested tunes and provided us with a fab evening! Through the whole process from December 2016 when we booked right up until the day they kept in touch and up to date! Thanks to Van Dyk we had the most special, perfect day of our lives- thank you!

Recently was invited to an ABBA tribute night here. Positives - the venue is absolutely stunning. Comments - average food. Negatives - the drinks are absolutely extortionately priced! Should you visit be sure to have remortgaged. Nothing to shout about really, nothing stood out other than the beautiful venue.

Came here with my mum for a lunch date. Beautiful dining room, and the food was excellent- we both chose fish dishes that were cooked to perfection. Good choice of meals on the menu too. We were served within an hour which is excellent for such freshly made food. We had desserts also which were lovely too. The staff were friendly and helpful. This is somewhere to go if you're after a fancier lunch than a regular resturaunt.

We used to go here frequently but had not been for years and then received a text offering 50% off that evening so we gave it a go. We had a really good time, the food and service were great, it was a great reminder of how we used to enjoy it. Although great it was exactly how we remembered which means it could perhaps do with a little updating, not in a bad way, just maybe lose the big velvety drapes for example.
Would definitely go again, especially on a deal!

Room Tip: We only went for dinner

This should really be 2 reviews as we thought this hotel as a wedding venue was excellent. Well laid out, nicely decorated for the wedding venue, very good food and great, attentive members of staff - probably 4.5 out of 5.

Now as a hotel probably 2 out of 5, urgently needs a refurb. We paid £149 for a superior room which was small, tired and the shower was appalling. The drink prices were outrageous. We had stayed at the Ibis Chesterfield North the previous night and at £36 per night excluding breakfast it was great being a very large well appointed room. Until the hotel and bar prices are lowered I would look elsewhere.

So in summary very good for wedding receptions but really poor and very expensive as a hotel.
