“Braye Beach Wedding”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

We are "just married" courtesy of the Braye Beach Hotel (+ registrar). We had not visited the hotel under its current owners and had booked and arranged the wedding from overseas, however while this to some was a gamble, the Braye Beach team provided an amazing day for us and our guests, many of whom also enjoyed a wonderful stay at the hotel.

We felt that the service standard was excellent, and the team genuingly cared about what they were doing from the set up of the rooms to the champagne and canapés through to the late night supper. Led by Richard Proctor, the team coordinated the event for us with a very high attention to detail, our involvement as amateur organizers was really not required! The team offered us a personal touch that left not just bride and groom with the feeling that they wanted to come back. Well done Braye Beach and the zero VAT was an added bonus!

We had a most enjoyable stay here. The hotel lived up to it's reputation. Staff were very friendly and efficient giving very good service. Our room was clean comfortable and well furnished with a lovely view of the bay. The restaurant overlooked the bay and was comfortable to sit in, the food was excellent both at dinner and breakfast. This is definitely the place to stop if visiting Alderney.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room

We had sailed here many times but decided to fly over and chill out for a few days.

Check-in went smoothly and we were give a tour of the hotel and facilities. Reception staff are exceptionally helpful and are more than ready to arrange cars, bikes etc.

My room was very nice with a brilliant beach view, flat screen TV and a sofa for watching from.

The first night we ate in the hotel dining room and had a very nice meal. Breakfasts are excellent. Coffee come quickly and the full Alderney breakfast proves popular.

The outside terrace is great when the sun is shining and good for keeping an eye on the kids playing on the soft sand below. The sea is cold but very clear.

We made use of the private cinema a few times. Great idea and they have loads of films to choose.

Thoroughly recommended and will be coming back I hope.

I don't, usually, write reviews but I felt duty bound to write this one. This is, without doubt, the best Hotel I've ever stayed at! It perfectly complemented the wonderful island of Alderney! I totally agree with all the positive reviews and totally disagree with the (very few) negative ones. The location, room, facilities and food were all impeccable, but it was the staff that really made our stay, special. Sometimes, in 4 Star+ Hotels, the staff can be insincere and impersonal but this was definitely NOT the case at the Braye Beach - they were ALL genuinely, friendly and couldn't do enough for you! Highly recommended!!!

I was on Alderney for 24 hrs and had chosen somewhere comfortable with restaurants so I knew I wouldn't have to find somewhere to eat.
On arrival I was hand delivered to my room via a tour of the hotel. Beautiful. The place is welcoming and all the lounges to sit and relax in were very inviting.
My room was lovely and large and I had a gorgeous view of the beach - stone's throw away. The room gave me plenty of places to stow bags and it was so bright and cheery. I enjoyed a casual dinner at the Divers pub next door which was just a walk across the balcony. Nothing was too much trouble.
Breakfast was on the balcony the next morning. Really enjoyed their selection and the service was great. The receptionists organised a bike hire for me in the morning, stored my bags and arranged a taxi to collect me at the end of my brief but wonderful visit. Would recommend happily to anyone.

Room Tip: Try to get further away from the lift which is in the middle of the row of rooms, and the higher you...

Myself and some family have just returned from another lovely holiday to Alderney, although we have only stayed in the Braye Beach hotel the once, we make sure that every trip we make to Alderney (1st visit was back in 2008) we pop into the hotel for a cup of tea or glass of wine sometimes with some times without food. No matter when we have visited the hotel we have found the atmosphere very pleasant, the views amazing and the staff to be very polite, friendly and helpful - nothing ever seems too much trouble for them,and they were all fantastic with my 4 year old Son and yet again it has been a pleasure going in the hotel. A big thank you to all the staff

We have just returned from two days at the Braye Beach Hotel and we are missing it already. Unfortunately we got off to a poor start as the plane was 1 1/4 hours late (apparently the elastic band needed rewinding!), but on arriving at the hotel we were given a warm welcome and tour of the hotel by Nicole, then, on entering our room (22)..... WOW! What a sight. What a fabulous view - overlooking the sandy bay. We subsequently spent many idle hours just sitting in the windows drooling over the sights.
Richard the manager, Nicole and Marie the receptionists, and all the staff were so helpful and friendly and couldn't do enough for us.
It was a beautiful hotel with its unusual downstairs cinema and reading rooms. We also enjoyed "The Divers" Pub next door, which is also part of the hotel.
All in all a thoroughly enjoyable stay on a lovely island with a spectacular vista.
We hope to return again one day.

Room Tip: A sea view is essential
