Closed since 2007, this superior 3-star hotel reopened in December 2016 after extensive refurbishment.
Built in 1904, the year when the MOB – the train linking Lake Geneva and the Bernese Oberland on the GoldenPass line – arrived in Rougemont, the Hotel Valrose has been rejuvenated. The 12 newly decorated rooms and common areas now heavily feature natural materials like wood and sober colours to create a relaxing atmosphere.
The people behind the project include Jean-Jacques Gauer, former director of the Lausanne Palace, and Edgar Bovier, chief executive of this same hotel. The hotel has a 70-seater restaurant with two dining rooms and a café, as well as a garden terrace for up to fifty guests. Serving them is the young chef Florian Carrard, who also previously worked at the Lausanne Palace and who takes inspiration from local products to create his menu. A must for visitors looking for a friendly and authentic place to stay.
