The first and striking thing about the Eurotel Mentreux is the view you get from practically 2/3rds of the hotel. Facing the stunningly beautiful Lake Geneva, it is easily one of the tallest buildings, offering a stunning view of the kale and the mountains beyond. Despite the fact that the weather was grey and cloudy, the hotel staff made us comfortable with a relatively quick check in. The restaurant right in front of the reception offers a panoramic view of the lake, with an Al Fresco area as well, thought for some strange reason, they didn't seem to have service there when we went. Watching the sun set (at a late 9 PM) is a highlight that shouldn't be missed.
The hotel is on the main road, though from the station, you'd have to come down a flight of steep steps to access the road, which with luggage may be a bit tricky. Thankfully, climbing up has an elevator. There are a bunch of boutique stores that line the road, which are fun for some shopping/window shopping. Lining the other side is the boulevard around the lake which is a delight for both walkers and watchers. Watching the boats come and go, are one of the highlights of this location. The ferry to Chillon castle is walk-able from the hotel- a must do for history buffs.
Coming to the rooms, we were upgraded to rooms with balconies, which faced out towards the lake. They are quite big, though the bathrooms are quite small.
Breakfast at the hotel is quite sumptuous; there are cheeky sparrows who try to get into the restaurant which add to the morning hustle. Thankfully they have a 24 hour restaurant, which helps with weird check in timings.
As in most hotels in Switzerland, eating at the restaurant is expensive, so be prepared for it. Another option would be to step out and try some of the cafes closer to the station or to try the Co-Op super market which is closer by for some DIY options.
