Photo vintage Le Valrose en 1907

Our history

Since 1904


The Valrose Hotel-Restaurant is a historic property founded in 1904 and run for over a century by the Cottier family. It was one of the first hotels in the Pays-d'Enhaut region built at the same time as the Montreux-Oberland Bernois Railway (MOB) which brought tourism to this then very isolated hinterland.

A local institution


The Valrose - as it is familiarly called by the locals - is considered by the Rodzemounais, the inhabitants of Rougemont, as an institution, a real meeting place in the heart of the village. Many of them come here every day to have their morning coffee, to have lunch on the terrace in summer or to enjoy an aperitif after a day on the ski slopes. And it is this spirit that we wish to keep. An authentic and warm place, always open and listening to its customers. Do you have an idea, a question, a suggestion or a desire to share with us?

A new era


It was after a ten-year closure and three years of heavy renovation and expansion work that the Valrose hotel-restaurant reopened in 2017. In 2021, new developments were made to welcome the new managers of the establishment, Sabine and Benoît Carcenat. The new restaurant concept - introducing gourmet dining - marks a turning point in the history of the Valrose.
