Old ladies would love this hotel interior, our room no 1, the decor was very flowery, the floor beautiful inlaid wood very old, even the wardrobe had wallpaper on the front, it was certainly unusual. The bed was comfy, the room had antique furniture, a wash stand and chairs. The TV had no English channels, the patio doors opened onto... More

We had booked our room well in advance (advised) for the jazz festival on the 7th July 2014, having arrived from Zurich at around 2pm we headed for the 201 bus stop which can be found by heading straight out of the railway station, across the road, and down the stairs directly in front of you (remember to cross the...

Our first floor room was musty, and the expensive pre-fix meal was so-so (only the soup was really good). Breakfast was generous. Our friends staying in another room did not have the musty experience we did, and they enjoyed the dinner. So, a mixed review here. Lovely staff and the front yard was pleasant for sitting out. A pleasant short... More

As one of the oldest hotels in the region, staying at Hotel Masson was akin to going back in time to 19th century Europe. The room was comfortable with a nice balcony, breakfast was delicious, and Madam was very gracious in accommodating our every whim. Would stay there again in a heartbeat. And within a 10 minute walk to Castle... More

Oldest hotel in the region, managed by the same family for over 200 years! Homy atmosphere, fantastic food, panaroma lake view (from terrece of 1st floor), and within walking distance to the favorate Chateau Chillion. Do check in before you go to the chateau because the hotel provides a visitor's card for half price of admission fee and free bus-taking.

This hotel really does have old world charm. I'm not really into the antique look but I found this hotel to have real ambience. Madam is always around to make sure everything runs smoothly and their dining room serves excellent food. If I had to fault something it would be that it is up a rather steep hill to walk... More

We reserved upon short notice with assistance with a knowledgeable Swiss friend. This is not a chain hotel...If you require the comforts of an engineered 5 star then, perhaps, look further. If you can imagine enjoying a tea in the lovely sitting room with sunny afternoon views of Lac Leman, and later a delicious set dinner in a room you... More

My wife and I stayed at this charming hotel at the end of September 2013. We booked a week's halfboard holiday through Inghams. We arrived and were met at the door by a young man who grabbed our heavy bags and swept us up to the first floor reception where the owner welcomed us and showed us to our small... More

Yes Montreux is truly buzzing during the Jazz Festival. For us it was a heady mix of music, good food, and the most delightful hotel which has character and distinction. Equipped with all you need, and for a very competitive price, the added advantages were great service, in a peaceful setting with authenticity that would be hard to beat. Close... More
