“Thoroughly enjoyed”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We enjoyed two very pleasant nights at this hotel. Our room overlooking the street was small but well appointed. The decanter of sherry was a lovely touch. We did not mind the lack of a view of the bay as we were able to look out at it at meal times and in the bar area. The food was very good and Richard was very attentive, keen to make sure that every guest was happy. We loved Alderney and enjoyed our walks.The whole stay was a very pleasant experience.

Thank you for your review and delighted you enjoyed our little touches, the sherry does seem to be a winner with most people.
Thanks again

Lovely location and accommodation.
Alderney is not the place to come if you are looking to do anything more than relax!
We feel like we have walked the island a dozen times but feel all the better for it!
Would definitely return - thank you very much!

Having searched for ages online for venues, we knew instantly that Braye Beach was the right choice. During the runup prep the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful; discussing our options and identifying others we hadn't considered; it was clear they wanted us to have our perfect day. They sorted taxis for all guests spread across several flights.
Throughout our stay, but particularly on our wedding day, staff were visible, extremely pleasant and helpful, but in no way obtrusive. And the wedding was fantastic. With glorious sunshine all day our guests enjoyed the beach and sea as well as chilling on the terrace with a drink. So many of our guests complimented us and the manager on the quality of the food which was down to the excellent head chef Steve and his team.
We loved the laid back atmosphere of our wedding whilst still enjoying the highest quality food, rooms and service. A huge thanks goes to the local florists Annie and Leigh, the Greffier and her staff, and of course The entire team at Braye Beach particularly Richard, for making us feel so welcome. We recommend it to anyone and cannot wait to return for our anniversary!

We were on Alderney for the first time to attend a wedding and the entire 5 days turned out to be a great experience. We stayed at the hotel which was the focal point for many of the social events, including the Wedding Breakfast and subsequent celebrations, and I have to say we found the Proprietor & Staff friendly, helpful and professional throughout our stay. Alderney itself was a surprisingly quiet and relaxing place to go, we hope we get the opportunity to return soon. Peter&Julie Sussex.

If it had not been for healthspan we would not have found this superb hotel. We could not take up the special offer as it did not fit into my husbands work schedual. That did not matter as the hotel had lots of excellent reviews. I contacted the staff as I have difficuly with walking. The staff were excellent and after emailing several times with them and talking I then knew the hotel would be suitable. We had a room right by the lift so this was good. Everything about the hotel is excellent and Richard Proctor and all the staff are superb. We could not fault anything at this hotel. It is a beautiful island and if anyone would want a stress free holiday Braye Beach Hotel is the place to go. How many stars would we give it 5*'s +++++++++++++ On this island there could not be a better place I am sure. Would we go again yes and we plan to in the future.

We escaped from a disappointing Hotel to Braye Beach Hotel. We spent two memorable days there, if only it could have been the 4 planned for Alderney. The Manager, Richard Proctor, and his staff were very welcoming and the service excellent. The Hotel is spotless and the facilities excellent. Situated close to the Harbour and the lovely beach it is ideal. The food, and presentation thereof, specially the vegetarian choice is great. If we returned to Alderney this Hotel would be our choice.

Room Tip: Sea view if possible

The Braye Beach Hotel turned out to be the perfect break for us. We had dinner there only once –no reflection on the hotel, merely that since this was our first visit to Alderney, we wanted to sample as many places as possible in the limited time available. The meal was very good. We had booked our holiday quite late and were warned our room (36) was small and had only 'a street view'. It was indeed compact, but not ridiculous; spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. The view turned out to be wonderful – we looked out on the sweep of Braye beach with the sea lapping gently at the shore. Some other reviewers have referred to lapses in service. While there were one or two very minor things that might have been better, they were certainly not significant, and in no way spoiled the experience. The hotel business is very tough, and these things do occasionally happen. Breakfasts on the terrace were lovely, the staff friendly and attentive. A good, well-run hotel in the perfect spot on a pretty island. Who could want more? We would certainly love to return – the flight/stay package was excellent value.

Room Tip: Go for a sea view if you can, but don't worry if it's not possible – the hotel's bar and...
