In a quiet location surrounded by a large garden and century-old trees, the family-run Hotel Masson looks out over the deep blue waters of Lake Geneva. If you love history and culture, then this is the hotel for you - it's the oldest hotel in the area and a member of Swiss Historic Hotels. The picturesque Château de Chillon is nearby and you'll get one free entrance per person per stay.
The sights and sounds of Montreux's bustling centre are a pleasant stroll along the lakeside path - it's a musical city famous for the Montreux Jazz Festival in July, and being the recording location for many of Queen's albums - look out for the huge Freddie Mercury statue on the edge of the lake.
Lake views and romantic design
This elegant Belle Epoque-style hotel dates back to 1829 and is in a peaceful spot between the lake and mountains so there's a variety of walking trails nearby. Make sure you're back at the hotel for sunset - the garden gets an incredible view.
Rooms are individually decorated - the romantic design is a reminder of times gone by, whilst modern facilities (and the cosiest of beds) make for an exceedingly comfortable stay. Enjoy a warm welcome, exceptional hospitality, and delicious meals. The hotel uses local produce so make sure you try the freshly-baked bread and homemade jam made from home-grown fruits.
