A good pillow is the secret to a great night’s sleep hence the question we get asked the most is what pillows do hotels use on their beds. Although pillow types are a personal preference most commonly used are a medium fill feather down (duck or goose) or ‘good as down’ pillows.

These are usually combined with microfibre firm fill pillows with the softer down pillow on top which gives the perfect combination of support and comfort. Non allergenic pillows are usually available for allergy sufferers. When making the bed housekeepers recommend, “Never place the pillows flat, instead place them upright to give a finished look’.

They also suggest using a pillow protector to keep the pillow in good condition. Standard pillows should be used for single, double and King beds with King pillows for super king beds.
