The hotel and grounds are just lovely but you can easily check that out for yourself online. We enjoyed hot tubs and massages and many a sun downer and, although my Mandarin is non-existent, never had the slightest trouble having our needs met. Mutianyu is still a great place to see the wall although, as it becomes more developed, it... More

We stayed here for one night while seeing the Great Wall. This is a wonderful hotel that gives back to the local community. The hotel is located where an old brickyard was. It is nicely decorated and has a small restaurant where we has both dinner and breakfast. You have to go a ways to eat somewhere else. For dinner... More

We stayed at the Brickyard for just one night whilst visiting China this October, and we cannot recommend it highly enough! In particular we loved the restaurant with piano, excellent food, the 5 minute drive to the Great Wall and the beautiful log fire in the house, so cosy!! All the staff were so welcoming, helpful and knowledgable. We will... More

Just finished an incredible lunch at The Brickyard near Mutianyu. Excellent wine list with an intercontinental menu. We had the pork dumplings, duck confit risotto, a lamb sandwich and a bottle of Crianza Rioja while seated by a lovely fire place in a cozy dining room with a view of the Great Wall. All the ingredients are local and the... More

Dear chpierce, I am just delighted that you enjoyed dining with us at the Brickyard. Many years ago my wife and I co-founded a wine distribution company in China and although the Brickyard is certainly not a wine destination we tried to put together a sweet little list -- thank you for mentioning it and enjoying a bottle.

We spent a night at Brickyard retreat with our two young children. Having read the fantastic reviews on Tripadvisor we felt it was the perfect place to experience the Great Wall. We were not disappointed, the correspondence from the staff was prompt and informative and we organised a pick-up through them without difficulty. After two stressful days trying to see... More

We stayed at the Pavilion Villa for our group of 4 adults, and enjoyed the 2 night experience. Most memorable were the quaint accommodations, impressive restaurant thanks to the highly talented head chef, and attentive night staff by Raj handling our late night check-in.

We stayed overnight between visits to The Wall at Jinshanling and Mutianyu. The room was modern and functional with brick walls and a panoramic view of The Great Wall hugging the skyline in the distance - and although warm lacked any feeling of coziness. If you are in any way shy, the toilet might prove embarrassing; whilst away from the... More

This has been by far my most memorable stay in China. From the beginning- The Brickyard was accomodating to our tight itinerary and never made us feel anxious.
