The mountains many other great attractions are on the other side of the lake around Montreux. But it depends very much what you like. Have a look at http://www.region-du-leman.ch http://www.geneve-tourisme.ch

It's very easy to get to Montreux from the airport. You take a train from Geneva airport station. The train journey takes about an hour and much of it is scenic. There is tons to do in and around Montreux, take a look at the Top Questions section of the Montreux forum for ideas.

Is there anywhere to stay in Geneva itself with nice lake mountain hilly views?

Thanks

The pointy mountains are up at the other end of the lake, best around Vevey and Montreux. Perhaps you could give some idea of budget so people can advise about hotel options with nice views in Geneva.

Hotels in Geneva are quite expensive and sometime very busy (or packed as for instance during the Geneva motor show (http://www.salon-auto.ch/en/) in March. So you are looking at a CHF 200 - 220 room. Believe it or not, this is challenging in Geneva :-/. tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g188057-d817240… is lovely, at the heart of the city and decently priced. http://www.manotel.com is another options: it is a mini-chain offering several options, usually fairly priced.

Hope this helps
