A charming old building steeped in character located in a very pretty little town. There is a large, secure car park at the back of the hotel which also caters for the hotel's two restaurants. I think the emphasis of the establishment is on the restaurants but they still have some very nice rooms. My room was on the first... More

Located in a quaint old building right next to the town's square and big abbey's church tower, befitting its age it has no elevator, no rooms on the ground floor which is the restaurant, the bar and the a bistro (they serve cheaper and different menu's from the restaurant), a problem when you like me are a senior, since there...

Nice place to stay, not very exciting except that it is a typical French place. We found the restaurant service a bit slow. We found out that besides the restaurant there was an kind of bistro as well that offered same kind of menu, a little lower priced. More people were in there so I suppose we we affected by... More

L’Hostellerie de l’Abbaye in Celles s/Belle is a clean and quiet place to stay, with a good restaurant. We arrived on the wrong day though! We got there on Sunday at 17.00 hr, just as the staff were leaving! They stop work on Sundays at 17.00, so there is nobody there after that, and no restaurant – the reason why... More

Lovely hotel in the centre of a small town. Private parking at rear of premises with outdoor eating and post meal drinking area. Unusually stayed in a triple room as travelling with my teenage son and daughter. Room very nice overlooking patio. Restaurant very busy when we stayed with many locals dining or celebrating events. As such we had to... More

As always this is a fantastic place. I have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions and it has never failed to impress. The menu is simple yet good quality and very reasonable. Service is very efficient and professional but staying friendly. We will definitely be returning again and again. Thank you

A beautiful hotel set in picturesque Celles - sur - Belle. The rooms are clean, contemporary, spacious and very comfortable. Showers were superb and overall décor was most attractive. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. One slight criticism is that if you are a light sleeper like myself noise from other rooms travel easily (especially through the ceiling),... More

Our room was at the very top of this old house; access difficult for anyone not fit and sober! It was rather small, but clean and with a comfortable bed. The small windows gave directly onto the church square and the bell tower. Passing pedestrians, passing cars and chimes made things a little noisy, but bearable if you are used... More

We spent two nights here and, despite small bedrooms and small beds, we enjoyed our stay. The rooms overlooked the courtyard dining area but this was not a problem as people dining late spoke quietly. The staff are charming and friendly and most can speak adequate English. For people with mobility problems there might be access difficulties - we were... More
