Thank you for the unforgettable weekend at the Brickyard. Our whole team really loved to stay there, we had two wonderful days. The rooms and facilities are so nice, the food you served was delicious and a lot of my co-workers said they definitely want to go to the Brickyard again.

To the staff of The Schoolhouse at Mutianyu Great Wall – Thank you so much for providing a great environment, menu, lunch presentation, and glass blowing demonstration for our Team Building Offsite Meeting. We accomplished our goals due in large part to the venue being just perfect. Members of our team agree that they look forward to visiting again for business events and for weekends and holidays with their families.

The Schoolhouse is an exceptional place to entertain, whether for business or for pleasure. I am always pleased with the attentiveness of the staff, the great food and, of course, the wonderful settings, whether on the Terrace, in the Smithy or at the Canteen. I especially appreciate and value the Schoolhouse team’s ‘can do’ attitude. They are always willing to try new ideas and are flexible with our requests.

I can say with great pleasure that our visit to The Schoolhouse was a real highlight of the overall trip. The students kept commenting on how much they learned and enjoyed their visit with you throughout the rest of our itinerary to Shanghai, Suzhou, Suzhou, Shenzhen, and Hong Kong. It was truly unique among the range of experiences MBA students have in visits to China, which as you know are filled with company visits. Based on their comments, I believe they appreciated the opportunity to learn about something very different, but which they had no idea they might encounter in China. Julie Upton-Wang’s presentation was extremely well received. So, I very much hope to make this a regular part of our program in the future. Please thank all your staff on our behalf for making this such a success for us.

There is only one way to describe our Moon Festival weekend at Brickyard, Schoolhouse and Xiaolumian: ‘Over The Moon.’

The Schoolhouse was the perfect venue for my team’s mini-retreat and our team building activities. The invigorating hike along the Great Wall at Mutianyu, coupled with the mountain clean air, the Schoolhouse’s local fresh food and ample meeting facilities, enabled us to step-back from the daily grind and relax, cultivate our working relationships and focus on our corporate and team goals and objectives.

The Schoolhouse has been the venue for several A.P. Moller – Maersk events and our experiences are positive without fail. While meeting facilities are basic but adequate, the accommodation in individually styled villas is outstanding and the food excellent. Also, the uniformly friendly staff has made every effort to accommodate our needs. For company events, The Schoolhouse provides a tranquil and charming alternative to the drab anonymity of a five-star hotel function room. We will be back!
