Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Sad and horrible experience
Hotel room description doesn’t match as advertised, roof room is actually an attic room with lot of stuff stored in there, and full of dust, which was an absolute no no for me who suffers horribly from allergies. We requested a different room, unfortunately the response was extremely rude frim the manager. The hotel is also a bit off from the main village where all the activities are. Very sad and horrible experience.

Wow! What a joy to stay at Hotel du Pillon. Friendly and available staff/proprietors, amazing food, comfortable/clean/quiet rooms, all very relaxing and affordable. Amazing views, close to great hiking/footpaths, and close to the town of Les Diablerets. There was nothing I didn’t like. I would heartily recommend to friends and family that they should visit—I will likely return!
