Having now stayed at the Brickyard two times, I can absolutely say it is a little 'gem'. Simply in the buildings exterior and some of the interior there is a refreshing attention to detail, and many things to appreciate. It seems like a magnificent mix of east and west, unique, and made by someone who cares. The service and friendliness is also excellent, so really a little oasis. Can be a bit tricky to find if you drive yourself, and there is no public transport to this location as far as I know. The view to the great wall is splendid. Walking there and back takes some effort, though. The local Chinese restaurant in the village looks a bit stark, but serves excellent food.
