The charming 33-room Hôtel Masson lies in an elevated, panoramic position on the old Simplon road. The present building, dating from 1829, was originally a wine grower’s house; now the oldest hotel in Montreux, it lies just minutes both from the town centre and from the famous Château de Chillon.


Hotel in quiet location, not far from the lake, forest, downtown Montreux and the famous Château de Chillon. Historical hotel with a lot of charm.

Swiss Historic Hotel

Both the original fabric of the building and the interiors are well preserved – including the high-ceilinged rooms, and the old, meticulously crafted parquet fl oor that once creaked under the footsteps of aristocrats, historians, philosophers, painters and writers.

Special distinction 1999 «for the remarkable preservation of the building substance and the interior fittings in the original style reflecting the true charm of this establishment. » The Masson Hotel in Veytaux, a suburb of Montreux on Lake Geneva, lies on the historic Simplon railway line, near the famous Castle of Chillon. The building was originally a vintner’s manor built between 1829 and 1832 by Jean François Masson. In 1850 it was transformed into a boarding house and later, in the 1970es, an annex with guest rooms and two lounges were added to the main building. The dining room with its still functioning kitchen elevator was built in 1911. Since then, the hotel has remained quasi the same on the outside. Today’s owner, Anne Marie Sèvegrand, strives to preserve both the historic appearance and the furniture of the hotel.
