The calm of the Belgian countryside. The flavours of a gourmet restaurant. A warm family atmosphere. Welcome to Thierry and Paule Neyens's hotel.
“ Constant innovation, knowing how to differentiate ourselves, attention to detail. A small hotel with a big hotel’s attitude! ”
The era between the wars, when bacon omelettes and coffee were served in Arlon’s rustic Peiffeschof, is long gone! Converted into a high-end hotel and inn following the liberation, the establishment began a new chapter in its history with the arrival of Thierry and Paule, in the year 2000. One year later, after major restoration, Hostellerie du Peiffeschof, The Originals Relais, opened its doors once again. Paule, a former primary teacher, ensures that everything runs smoothly at this 3 Star hotel and the guests are happy. Trained with the greatest Michelin-starred chefs, Thierry is the boss in the kitchens. The establishment soon won its three stars, and the restaurant a strong reputation, and the nine rooms are never empty. Its success comes down to attention to detail, friendliness, the family atmosphere, and the efficiency of its young, dynamic team. The only disappointment here is when you have to leave.
The nine rooms at the Hotel Hostellerie du Peiffeschof, The Originals Relais, were all renovated in 2017. The décor is simple, understated and efficient, with the emphasis on wood and the theme of nature. The beds’ headboards are decorated with the delicate colours of sprays of lilac or hornbeam, or poppies and meadow flowers. The spacious rooms are soundproofed, fully equipped, comfortable and warm. They offer easy access for those with reduced mobility.
- Non smoking room
A generous buffet breakfast is set out every morning in the hotel’s new “Vintage” area. You can look out onto the establishment’s superb garden while enjoying delicious regional, organic and artisan produce. At lunch and dinner, you can place your trust in Thierry who will offer you gourmet brasserie cuisine accompanied by a wine list that he is always happy and proud to tell you about. On fine days, the shady terrace surrounded by nature awaits you. Make yourself comfortable, and savour both the moment and your meal! The hotel also has a bar.
Close to France, Germany and Luxembourg, Arlon is ideally located for the major routes through Europe. The Romans got it right when they built the town here in the first century AD. They left, but the countryside remained. Peaceful and restful... a delightful stopover in Belgium.

What our customers say
"A great overnight stay! "
As a overnight stop during our travels we found the Peifferschioff a true find thanks to recommendations of friends. A very friendly and personal touch, a wonderful diner and breakfast in a delightful interior. We will be back!
Despite the hot weather the hotel facilities and rooms were relatively cool. The welcome and service was efficiënt and very warm. We had the feeling of being in a B%26B-like family environment. The Jacuzzi and sun/shadow deck was very relaxing. A nicely presented and well filled breakfast with homemade and local products ended our stay.
"A lovely place to relax and enjoy"
Hostellerie du Peiffeschof is a fantastic place to unwind and enjoy. Thierry and Paule make you feel at home right away.
No. 1 is a great and comfortable room. The staff is very friendly and I had a warm welcome and relaxing stay.
"Very good experience"
Our stay in this hotel was very nice. We have particularly appreciated the kindness of our hosts. We have also like the quietness of the place and the outside spa where you can really rest and enjoy the surrounding nature! That's a great place!
"What a fabulous place"
Superb welcome, wonderful natural hosts, great attentive service in the restaurant, excellent facilities, flawless signage on the route, best stocked wine cellar I've come across for years, very comfy bed, excellent shower (no bath - not a problem for us). Plenty of garden furniture for sitting out, (We didn't sample the Jacuzzi or Sauna). Excellent local walking options. The room did have chairs, but hardly the type you'd curl up in with a good book. No matter - We'd thoroughly recommend the place.
"quiet oasis where it is very good to eat, sleep and enjoy"
The journey already starts when driving to the hotel. Leaving the city center of Arlon for a nice spot in the nearby green valley. The warm welcome by the owner with some clear houserules makes the stay easy and pleasant. The owners thought about everything: bathrobes, towels and slippers for the sauna and hot tub. Coffee, thee and minibar in the room. Good quality mattress for a perfect sleep. And you can enjoy the delicious cuisine both in the afternoon and in the evening. I'll be back!
"Fabulous hotel, wonderful restaurant, lovely owners"
This is a great place to stay, with excellent facilities, a really good restaurant, offering a good range of local beers alongside excellent food. The owners are friendly and welcoming too, as are the rest of the team. Highly recommended.
