We had a long walk today culminating in a visit to Hotel du Pillon. We arrived in time to have what we thought would be a good lunch. On arrival we were told that as non residents, we could not have a meal. This was not only disappointing, but we had walked a long way to get there with no... More

The welcome was prefect and the guide given by the owner was perfect. The hotel has a very homely look and feel. Wi-Fi was perfect and I didn't have any problems. The shower was perfect with good space. The room size was average, however the bed was slightly poor since I had requested for a double bed and it was... More

This hotel and its surroundings are like a Swiss post card! The hotel is traditional, very comfortable and decorated with taste. The owners are warm and helpful and the breakfast is ideal to get ready for a day of hiking. Nearby you find a number of beautiful hiking trails for all levels and the view is stunning. This is my...

This is a traditional Swiss chalet style hotel. The owners were extremely welcoming and helpful during my two night stay. It was like home from home as we were told to use the kitchen and help ourselves to drinks at any time. The evening meal was excellent and Michelle cooked exactly what we'd asked for. The room was spacious and... More

Stayed for 1 night and will definitely return. Food and wine in the restaurant was fantastic. The best tarte tatin I have ever eaten! Francis was kind enough to pick us up from the train station and drop us of in the morning. Lovely traditional hotel. Comfortable room. Highly recommended! Charming, relaxed vibe.

Getting there was quite a task but absolutely worth it. The owner of the hotel was a gem of a person. Never met someone quite like him. He sent his daughter to pick us up from the train station after our long and tiring journey( cause we missed a train in between). Arriving at the hotel he greeted us at... More

We spoke English, which apparently was too much for the Host and Hostess to understand. Even the smallest task such as describing the menu for dinner was just short of like playing a game of sharade's. we eventually grew tired of this process and did our own thing for dinner and breakfast, which was paid for in advance. Learn to... More

Further proof of English imperialism when the whole world has to speak English, as if the entire planet was their empire. Sorry for you, but personally when I travel I make the effort to speak the language of the country where I go and if I don't know I do not blame my guests not to talk about mine. Personally... More

just a killing joke to warn you for addiction. This is my best family hotel experience in years ! Francis and his team, especially Jacques, have a "je ne sais qiou" joie de vivre that makes you feel at home at ease and very welcome. Combined with delicious creative cuisine improvisation and clean, nice, warmly decorated interior and rooms makes... More

It's a historic hotel in a alpine village. I liked the decoration, the atmosphere, the mountains view, the breakfast with breads and hot chocolates, the silence in the night. But you have to know that it's an old hotel, then you have to carry your luggage upstairs and somethings doesn't work so well, like the door lock and toilet...

.. and I certainly did. The hotel was bought in 2007 by a multilingual French-Swiss art dealer from Paris (Francois Barlier) who put all his good taste into the renovation of this traditional hotel. As he is also personally present, he is not only nice to talk to, but guarantees that "things" are kept in order and as they should... More
