Braye Beach Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 May 2014

This was a perfect first trip to Alderney. Braye Beach Hotel is stunningly located right on beautiful Braye Beach. Richard and his staff at Braye Beach Hotel are very professional and friendly, treating each guest as though they are the only and most special guest. Nothing is too much trouble and they went beyond the call of duty to make us feel welcomed and at home. Very comfortable bedroom with view of beach and bay. The sherry, bottled water and fresh milk are a nice touch in the room.

Alderney is a perfect place to unwind and get away from stress. It's quiet and peaceful, with lots of sea and land birds to see and hear. If you want to look around the island, hire a bike (an electric one if you're lazy on hills!) from Auto-Motion, a 3-minute walk from the hotel. You can get right round the island in 5 hours with plenty of stops for paddling in the sea, and lunch at The Old Barn.

Room Tip: The sea view is perfect; if you have a non-sea view room you'll overlook the road and the old tr...

My wife and I were lucky enough to stay at the hotel for 4 night whilst attending a family wedding on this wonderful island. What can I add that has not been said before, picture perfect location and an excellent quality of food, what I would like to add is the standard of service we received during our stay, from the moment we checked in till the moment we left the service was second to none.
We were a good twenty minutes late for breakfast on the Sunday morning and had all but gave up hope of feasting on the top class spread, however when we got down stairs the fact we were late was just shrugged off by the manager Richard and we were shown to our seats without even a raised eyebrow and had plates of hot food brought to us without delay, this is just one of many instances where the manager and staff go above and beyond at this hotel, nothing is too much trouble for them and we can’t praise them highly enough.
We have stayed in all types of accommodation over the years but never encountered a level of service in a hotel like we received here, well done to all the fantastic staff and one of the most friendly and nicest managers I have ever come across. Richard I doth my cap to you should take great pride in all you have accomplished here, see you next year!

Room Tip: If you can get a sea view...you will see why when you get there.

My partner and I have just returned from a long weekend away at Alderney's Braye Beach Hotel and really, we cannot wax lyrical enough about our experience there.

Firstly, our street view room was small but exceptionally comfortable with tasteful decor. I had the most comfortable and peaceful nights sleeps (and an extended lie in) I've had in years.

The breakfast was lovely. We opted for the Full Alderney every day as the ingredients were so high in quality and delicious! I wish I could find sausages like that on the mainland! Other choices were available, however, if something else was required eg salmon, kippers and of course the buffet style continental selection. Alderney dairy is just beautiful..so I couldn't get enough of the locally produced yoghurt and the sunshine yellow, creamy butter slathered onto the gorgeous local bread.

We were there for a family wedding which was being held at the Braye on the Saturday of our weekend away. This consisted of a Fruit de Mer buffet. It was fantastic! The freshest I've ever tasted.

Which brings me to the staff. Professional and helpful. Can't fault them one little bit. The manager, who is a lovely guy, accommodated us with a late breakfast sitting after too much celebrating from the previous evening. Nothing was too much hassle.


It's such a lovely and laid back place to stay with the most beautiful view of Braye beach bay and Fort Albert. The seas are turquoise and the sand is white and powdery. I can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: I would fork out for a sea view room....it really is a spectacular vista.

We used the Braye Beach Hotel for my Daughter's wedding last weekend. It could not have gone any better. We had a seafood buffet to die for and all our 80 guest were very impressed. The feedback we have had has been outstanding. The grooms family traveled from Jersey and their feedback has been of utter delight.
Richard and his team gave exceptional and outstanding service from the bar service to the waiting staff and the guys serving on the buffet.
As an ex Chef I know how much work and planning goes into getting things right and this team did this with fantastic enthusiasm.
From the bottom of my heart Thank You all very much indeed.
Anyone planning a wedding in the future will not be disappointed with this venue, service,attention to detail and friendliness of everyone involved.

We stayed at the Braye Beach during a short break in Alderney over Easter. The location of the hotel is great. Right next to Braye Beach, which has glorious soft sand. With hardly anyone else around, the children almost had the beach to themselves most of the time. There are fairly flat walks from the hotel in both directions up the coast to explore. The town itself, though, is a 10-15 minute hike up a fairly steep hill. A good way to walk off breakfast!

The hotel itself is clean, modern and well appointed. The staff were friendly and efficient. Richard stood out in terms of the high level of service he gave and he was always happy to oblige with requests. Whilst the staff were all helpful, not all were as forthcoming and perhaps lacked a little presence.

Our room was well appointed, spotlessly clean and with a great view out over the beach. A lovely sight to wake up to. The hotel also features a small cinema, which we did not make use of, but they are happy for you to choose a film to watch on a rainy day. There are also a couple of lounges down stairs, which we generally found to be a quiet haven, with board games to amuse the children.

The food in the restaurant was well cooked and tasty. All of the dishes we had during our stay were very well executed. There is also a decent wine list. If we had one minor comment about the menu, it is that after a few days it was becoming a little repetitive and a little more variety would have been welcome.

We had a great visit to Alderney and enjoyed our stay at the Braye Beach and would happily recommend it.

The Braye Beach Hotel is, without doubt, one of the nicest, friendliest hotels I have stayed in. From the outset my wife and I were made welcome on the island of Alderney, with the taxi driver taking our cases to the hotel whilst we went on the train (Sundays only at 2.30 and 3.30pm).
After the train trip we arrived at the hotel and were given a guided tour, the first time a hotel had ever done this. We therefore knew from Day 1 where all the facilities were without any of the uncertainty one usually experiences.
This really set the scene for our stay, nothing was ever too much trouble. The staff were friendly and helpful, the service excellent, and both the food and rooms first rate. I would highly recommend this hotel, and I look forward to returning very soon.

We only stayed for 3 nights but our expectations from a previous visit were easily met and we were very pleased to see that standards had not slipped. All staff we had contact with were very friendly and happy to help, Richard has them well trained. Food was very good, very tasty and more than enough for anyone. Our room this visit faced the street but that did not really matter as it was very clean and comfortable and we had no problem with noise from any other guest which sometimes can be a issue in hotels, but not this one. The position of the hotel on the beach is ideal and if you have not been to the hotel or the island then you are missing a treat.

Room Tip: Beach views are best, but are the most expensive
