It reopened in 1849 but closed for renovation soon after. The Wolff brothers took it over in 1861 and by 1870 Gustave was the sole proprietor. He could not make the hotel pay and sold up, and his successor failed also. It then became Chillon College, a school for British colonials, described by the Singaporean newspaper The Straits Times described it as the 'Eton of Switzerland'. The building burned down in 1933.
