Pillows Grand Hotel Reylof

We believe that today’s and tomorrow’s travelers highly appreciate an individualized experience when it comes to their hotel stays. A personal approach in an elegant and medium-sized one-of-a-kind hotel. That is why we created Pillows Hotels. For us, there is no greater purpose than the comfort and well-being of the people we serve; our guests, our stakeholders and of course you, our employee.

We always offer our guests excellent and professional service, efficient guest-oriented systems and a home away from home feeling. This combination has proven to lead to high guest satisfaction rates and an optimal work environment.

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.
