Fodor's Expert Review Hôtel Masson

5 rue Bonivard, Veytaux, Vaud, 1820, Switzerland

If you enjoy being away from the downtown resort scene, book into this demure little inn on a hillside in Veytaux, between Chillon and Montreux. Since it was built in 1829, it has had only four owners, and the current family takes pride in its genteel period decor and the personalized attention that attracts repeat guests season after season. You'll find floral prints, brass beds, pristine linens, buffed parquet floors, and expansive lake views from the numerous balconies. The breakfast buffet is generous, with homemade breads and jams.

PROS

  • serene, old family–estate feel
  • genial hostess is an accomplished innkeeper
  • buffet breakfast with homemade breads and jams

CONS

  • need a car unless you want to trek uphill from the bus stop
  • no other restaurants nearby
