Convert money in to string

I am taking a field form an SQL database which is in a money format and would like to move this to a string to display and save in a nvarchar field.
I believe that I need to convert this to a decimal, which I would like rounded to just 2 decimal places. So where I have got to is :
Response.Write("£" + Convert.ToDecimal(AddAds["GFProductPrice"]));

This however produces 4 decimal places so I tried rounding by

decimal bestprice = Convert.ToDecimal(AddAds["GFProductPrice"]);
Response.Write("£" + "{0:#.##}", bestprice);

but this says the write method expects 2 arguments.
Any suggestions on the best way to display the money field as a rounded number in a string format.
