Pillows Grand Hotel Reylof in Ghent reopened its doors on 6 October 2018. This stately hotel with 157 rooms, bars, an extensive Living area, Salons, and a SPA has been completely transformed into a boutique hotel. Its ambience is defined by subtle luxury, soft colours, and rich, natural materials. It's not just the hotel that's got a makeover; the famous LOF restaurant has been completely renovated as well. What makes this restaurant unique is that it carries Ron Blaauw's signature style. Blaauw is one of the Netherlands' most celebrated chefs. He translated his successful Ron Gastrobar concept for LOF. Ron Blaauw is known for his contemporary approach to cooking, which combines local ingredients with modern cooking techniques.
