“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

A excellent adress, with all services expected from a best in class adress near the wall. A natural environment, buildings respectful of Chinese tradition but renovated with talent, tasty green food. The employees are dedicated to help you and provide support to get to the Great Wall and from it, although you can also reach it by foot from the hotel. Highly recommended.

Stayed in the Sleeping Buddha suite. Was absolutely beautiful with a huge picture window which looked out over the mountains. Everything was high-spec, warm and comfortable and the only thing to complain about is that the menu at the Brickyard (and also the Schoolhouse restaurant) is basically Western with just a couple of stock Chinese items on them. There's no getting away from this as the local cafe is bloody horrible. However, that's a minor quibble.

We stayed a The Brickyard for 3 nights in October and loved it ! It is very quiet and wonderful to be in a rural atmosphere and see the Great Wall at a distance from our room. The food was OK for dinner - not too many choices but Loved the breakfast ! We especially loved the Date Nut bread they served and the fact you could go in the cozy lodge and have Tea,Coffee or Soda and fruit or cookies at anytime ! Made us feel really at home ! Also loved the little fireplace area where you could have a cocktail or read a book !
Our favorite day was using a map they provided to us we walked up a trail from the Schoolhouse to the "Wild Wall" (trail #7 I think ) and experiencing the Wild Wall was fabulous but a bit rough !
Make sure you have good shoes on as one you climb on to the wall from the hilly trail it is a bit overgrown with bushes and trees and a steep drop down ! We walked over to the Toboggan at watchtower #5 I think and came down and walked back to the Schoolhouse. It was great to have the shuttle to and from the schoolhouse to eat and hike etc.
The next day we did the typical tourist part of the wall going up the gondola and down the Toboggan once again !
I would highly recommend staying at the Brickyard to experience the Great Wall !

Room Tip: Any room with a view of the wall !

We stayed in the Chairman's Suite for 3 nights and loved the whole experience. The staff were fantastic, particularly Gina and Danna who were both very friendly and helpful. Went for a massage with Jake and he is truly gifted. The resort is beautiful and perfectly positioned.

The Chairman's Suite has 2 wood burning fireplaces which were wonderful considering the cold weather at night. It also has a small kitchenette and a great fresh coffee grinder / brewer in the suite, a mini bar and all the general utensils, cutlery and crockery.

The other reviews pretty much say it all. The only suggestion would be to perhaps have a slightly bigger menu at the Brickyard.

Room Tip: The Chairman's suite is not essential but it does have 2 wood burning fire places :)

This is our 4th trip to china and we've been all over, and this is our favorite hotel in China so far. We love China, but sometimes on 2-week trips you yearn for some good western food and a soft western bed just for a couple nights. This place is done in the Hutong style and is very Chinese (it's all old brick factory), but the western touches make a westerner at least feel he is really being pampered. Food is fantastic. Our room was one with an all glass wall looking out at the Great Wall. We had our own private patio facing the wall. The place was just so beautiful and relaxing. A true "retreat."

Room Tip: Get the rooms with the glass wall facing the Great Wall

I only had a very short stay at the Brickyard in Mutianyu, but wish I could have stayed longer. Its a great property in a great location. Its very convenient to getting to the Great Wall and other local attractions.

The property itself is done as an eco resort. I did not get to make use of all the facilities, like the spa, etc, but they looked great. The staff is very friendly and attentive and I did not have any difficulty with language, the staff can communicate is English.

I think if you are going to the see the Great Wall in China and also want to have a few days to chill out, I would recommend the Brickyard.

We came here for a retreat and was pleasantly surprised that it was a nice cosy place to stay. The staff were very friendly and food was acceptable. Rooms were nice and clean. They even have a whole glass panel wall on the side that faces the Great Wall. We were blessed with a few clear days and you can see the Great Wall. At night, you can also lie in bed and look straight out into a star lit sky. Good for a relaxing getaway. Wifi connection is excellent.
