Braye Beach Hotel
The only 4* Hotel on Alderney
Braye Beach Hotel is literally situated directly on Braye Beach - one of the best bays on the island. You can sit on the terrace and drop a pebble in the sand. This means that the views from the restaurant, bar and bedrooms are hard to beat. Whether bright sunshine, gently rain or howling wind there is always something interesting to see out of the window. Grab a glass of wine, pick and spot, and watch the beauty of nature on your doorstep.
Your Host Richard
Braye Beach would not be the same without Richard with his big smile and red braces
Richard Proctor has been managing Braye Beach for the past 7 years, putting all of his energy and passion into giving guests a very personal and unique experience. Always clad in red braces he makes an instant impression, very much the host of our hotel, and the glue that keeps it together and running so smoothly. An extremely sociable chap, you can expect a warm welcome and a friendship that develops over your holiday.
Richard has been managing hotels around the world for the past 30 years but now very much feels Alderney is his longterm home. He first came to the island when he was 22 years old and dating a lovely Scottish girl. He had always wanted to return to Alderney but did not end up coming back until 35 years later when he was offered the job at Braye Beach.
"When I arrived I was once again captivated – the peace and quiet, the safety, the community – nothing much had changed in all those years. I have lived in many other islands including Ascension Island, St Kitts and Bermuda. They were of course a little hotter than here but Alderney has something extremely special about it."
We hope you enjoy meeting Richard and the rest of our lovely team!
