Booked into the lake view room and it was beautiful. Walking distance to the lake, Freddie Mercury statue and the Montreux boat stop. Great to know that you get free train travel to nearby towns such as Vevey through staying and you also get 50% off boat travels. The room itself was clean and relatively spacious with a little balcony. The refurb has been done to a high standard but the doorway into the bathroom is relatively small and opens outwards which hits against the room door if you are not careful.

the hotels are supposed to give clients a Riviera Pass. It makes all public transportation free and gives big discounts on tours, boat trips, etc. Then I asked about tours they told me to go to the tourist office. While there I was pricing everything and casually mentioned that I was staying at the Eurotel. She told me about the pass and I had to go back and ask for it. When I did I was told that is only given by request. No apologies. Also I accidentally left my Kindle there. when a friend called to ask if they found it they were to call him back. No call was received.

The staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable and that was clearly the high point of the hotel, apart from all the other pluses that go with an iconic Fairmont property. The property is on the banks of Lake Geneva, where you can spend days walking, cycling, chatting, eating and drinking. We walked up to Freddie Mercury's studio, took a cruise on the lake and took a bus to chateau Chillon. A big thank you to all the staff at the Fairmont.
We know Montreux well and the reasonably central situation within a few minutes' walk of the station suited us. The room was clean though cramped, and towels, coffee/tea making facilities etc. were fine apart from there being no milk/creamer. We had as expected a stunning lake and mountain view. The only disadvantage of the situation is that one has to cross the main road to get to the hotel building where all the facilities - including a rather chilly indoor swimming pool - are to be found.
Booked for one night in a double room. It was a functional, albeit old and badly arranged room, that had a view of the bay and a nice balcony. Would stay again based on budget and location (centre of city) alone, but probably aim for something nicer. They are being renovated, so maybe better in the future...

parking with a car is easy with this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful but the location is slightly away from the downtown and because it was raining and cold we didn't venture out one evening and wished we were closer to the main area. Otherwise the hotel was very nice, the buffet breakfast was also ok and convenient.

Bordered by vineyards and Lake Geneva Bay, and set against a backdrop of the Alps, Montreux has a mild climate making it ideal for leisure travel. Visitors can spend time boating and sun bathing on the lake, or take in the local culture along the vibrant promenade. Montreux is filled with history and architecture, and is the location for the oldest casino in Switzerland. It is also the starting point for trains that provide transportation into mountains.
