Arriving at Locanda Del Pilone is kind of like a dream come true for a wine & food lover. The view is almost 360 degrees from a hilltop with some of the greatest wine ranks in Piedmont. The hotel is like a mansion, very small and with a Michelin star restaurant. We stayed for three days, and the stay was... More

We used to come to the Loanda since 4 last years several times, it is always a wonderful moment. We feel like home. The place is very beautiful, the staffs are really kind, but very professional. It is really a palace service in the middle of vines. The restaurant is just impressing, a real sensorial experience that I definitely recommend.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in early October at the start of the white truffle season. This was the second time we've returned to the hotel. A wonderful family style hotel. This time we stayed in the room in the middle of the vineyard rather than the main house. A bit less convenient but the views in... More

Charming small hotel (6 rooms) above an excellent restaurant. Stay there only for the latter of course although the views are simply amazing. Restaurant service is very good, wines are fantastic. We think the lodging is quite expensive for what's offered but the restaurant prices are more than fair.

Thought it was a great shame that there was mismatch between such delicacies of the food and in contrast rather careless service. The foods were good - from "surprises from the chef" to main menus (I had veal which was excellent). I would not recommend this to my friends though because the services were disappointing. The team on the floor... More

Firstly, I must say that the staff at this hotel are almost all really excellent. The quality of service and training rivals any top hotel in London, New York or Paris. However, I felt that a few things let this hotel down: Firstly, value for money. While being very clean and simple, the rate for the rooms does not reflect... More

We have only stayed one night in this gem, located on the hill in the middle of wineyards, but we have enjoyed every minute. Rooms are spacious, full of thoughtful details and beautiful decorations. On arrival we have mentioned that we will be leaving early morning, going to the airport. By the time we have finished our dinner, there was... More

both hotel and restaurant are worth making a de tour in the region of Alba a walk. You can safely take the proposed menu with accompanying wines and then sleep heavens in their authentic bedrooms. The breakfast was not extensive (still a few savory condiments) but there were freshly baked cakes ... One the other hand the price of a... More

It is very hard not to fall in love with both the views and the place itself. This quiet, peaceful and romantic get away offers so much. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breathtaking 360 degree panoramic views over the vinyards below as this place is located at the top of the hill. You can easily just spend a full day... More

I rented two bedrooms for my wife and son in July. This excellent facility was our base for touring nearby wineries in Piemonte. The views were magnificent, the staff attentive, breakfast fine and we heartily recommend the hotel. There is an excellent on site restaurant as well.
