As part of a three centre holiday in Switzerland we stayed at the Hotel Masson in Montreux. The hotel has a feeling of faded elegance - it looks quite grand in structure with its sweeping staircases and landings, but has a look of being a little dated and tired in some of the furnishings. That said the hotel was clean...

If you are looking for a hotel with character in a reasonable location, then the Hotel Masson certainly provides it. The public areas are attractive and ooze atmosphere. Rooms are attractive and have character, but not luxurious. The rooms are certainly 'tired', and one gets a feel that the place needs some refurbishment. This need not involve taking away the...

We had a great time at the Mason hotel (3 star-hotel). It is an establishment that dates back to the 19th Century and that remains closed during the winter session, so you may notice it needs some refurbishment (painting, some deteriorated carpets…). Also, cleaning of our room at check-in could have been better. However, we saw these details as minor...

Very nice place. Historical hotel in Montreux. Vintage decor, large size rooms, generous breakfast, smiling staff, beautiful grounds. We had a room on a ground floor with exit to the garden and a small personal patio. Take a taxi from the train station. The hotel is a little bit up hill and it might be difficult to make it if...

200 year old building, tastefully decorated, and very clean. Great location, we were able to walk anywhere in town. The included breakfast was fantastic! Great selection of fruit, fruit salad, yogurt, cereal, bread, cheese, cured meats, fresh juices, and coffee, all of the highest quality. The staff was very polite and helpful, most spoke at least a little English. My...

Very nice place. Loved my stay. Friendly staff, lovely room, good breakfast. Quiet. Location is convenient and if I have to be picky, I have to take bus to the main train station in Montreux and there is no super market near by. Need to walk a slope to the hotel. I would recommend this place if u don't mind...

The staff is extremely friendly, including those who work the restaurant. The included Breakfast Buffet is above average, though the array of meats is extremely limited to just three thin-sliced varieties of pork. Juice selection is limited. The view of the lake and French mountains on the other side is beautiful. Vey taus is two towns away from Montreux. It's...

Although the building looks old and unimpressive from outside; the interiors tell you a different story....elegant and classy. The furniture and the decor will surely impress you. The other positive is the location its very close to the lake which you can walk in 5mins. The room downstairs have a private balcony opening on to the garden with a view...

My husband and I had the pleasure to stay at this great place. From the moment we opened the big glass doors we loved the charm that this historic hotel exudes. We had a room with a patio overlooking Lake Geneva and enjoyed the lively view. Rooms were comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was excellent. The hotel was an easy walk...

What a marvelous find, lovely old house. Checkin and out processes were seamless, and a transportation card provided. Room was clean and spacious, with a veranda looking out over Lake Geneva and the town. We had breakfast each day which was excellent, we ate dinner one night (arrival) which was also excellent. Staff were attentive to our needs. Location is...
