We booked this hotel months in advance of our stay after reading favourable reviews on Trip Advisor. After a lovely day in the Black Hills we arrived in Deadwood parked up and found the hotel. We gave the receptionist our details and she then informed us that our room was NOT in the hotel but across the road above some shop called Madame Peacocks. We were not happy but despite our protests all the receptionist kept saying was "you will love this place". NO WE DID NOT!!!. There was a narrow staircase which went through a door straight off the pavement (sidewalk). The apartment was right at the back of the building with absolutely nothing to look at but roof tops and air-conditioning units. It was depressing. To be fair it was nicely furnished but after looking forward to staying in a hotel we certainly did not relish the thought of being stuck here on our own. After lots of ringing round and searching we did eventually secure a room elsewhere which I will review. We certainly did not like the attitude of the receptionist who thought she knew what we would like better than we knew ourselves. If you book the Celebrity Hotel make sure that is where you will be staying as they also have another annexe called the Branch House. There was never any mention on any correspondence we received that our room was not in the main building. To be fair to the hotel we did receive a full refund.
