From the entrance, it is possible to see a few chairs surrounding a firework, inviting the visitor to sit, relax and chat with a good glass of wine. Rooms are extremely comfortable and nice, all characterised by wooden furnitures; breakfast features tons of good local food, from yogurt to cheese; lunch/dinner & wine list definitely match expectations. Francis is welcoming... More

The hotel is outside Les Diablerets which is in itself within walking distance. The front is near the busy acces road making the relais du silence a little challenged. But rooms on the back are very quiet but they miss the view on the distant mountains. The rooms are very basic and small. Shower is a cubicle in the room... More

My wife and I loved this hotel. It is comfortably modern without sacrificing the charms of Switzerland. Warm and cozy....like home. The hotel staff and the proprietor were very friendly. The food was excellent in the hotel restaurant....the best restaurant in Les Diabalets.

Quite intentionally The hotel feels like a large private house which strongly reflects the eclectic tastes of the owner. When you arrive there is no reception just a large, informal living area busily hung with paintings and stags heads. You share the space with owner the other guests and the art which continues throughout the hotel. Rooms have great views... More

My teenagers were v impressed by the hotel when we arrived at night in the snow. Charming building, beautifully furnished and decorated with slightly shabby chic theme. The owner is an artist and it shows. Commnal areas were comfortable. Good drying facilities. Bedrooms were a good size though i would have welcomed a bath rather than shower. Breakfast and indeed...

Nobody around on arrival, but a notice in the hall telling us where our room was. No question of being asked for identity, passport or payment. We never felt the need to have a key or lock our room. When we returned from a short walk we met Francis the owner who was quiet, charming and helpful. Everything beautifully decorated,... More

Reading previous reviews for this hotel makes me feel that perhaps the hotel had an off week when we stayed. Here is what we experienced when we stayed at the hotel for 7 nights as a group of 12 (1 couple and 10 males who hadn’t met before): Positives: 1. Beautifully furnished and decorated hotel with lots of interesting artwork... More

Thanks for the compliments on the positive side, which are usually shared by the majority of our guests, who realize that we offer much more than required by an average 3 star hotel in terms of deco, ambiance, cosy rooms, etc .. Your comments on TripAdvisor being extremely long, I shall have to answer the same way. Sorry for the... More

Hotel du Pillon is without any doubt a gem. A french art merchant decided to buy the hotel in 2007 and he succeeded, at least almost. The location is perfect, in front of the Alpes Vaudoises, although not exactly in front of the Glacier des Diablerets. Atmosphere is cosy or homely and rooms are nice and comfortable. Everything is clean... More

We just spent the weekend in this delightful hotel after I received a wonderbox giftbox weekend for 2 nights. The hotel is original and quirky and the owner is super friendly and helpful and spoke to us in English, French and Spanish within 5 minutes !
