Don't even know where to begin. Internet is a joke. They give you 2 complicated password/usernames with about 20 letters and numbers. Once entered,it takes 20 minutes before u r loged in,then 3 minutes before u r knocked off. The staff,especially at the bar and resturant are sad looking,miserable human beings who appear to hate you more than their jobs. For a while,I thought they were patients at an insane asylum.The lifeguard at the pool sits on his cell nonstop screaming loud enough for all to understand the conversation. There is no drink service at the pool,including no water or soda. You bake in 90 degree temperatures while dehydrating to the point of forming kidney stones. Not even a vending machine for water. When you enter your room,the mini bar is totally empty. You need to walk to the inmates at the front desk and order a mini bar package. When I asked why would one need to do that since in normal hotels,one is only charged for what you take from a mini bar,no answer was given. Let's move on to the fabulous in room air conditioning system. There r motion detectors in the rooms so when u leave the room,the air shuts off. Then when you return from a days adventure or dinner,you room has reverted to the 90 degree temperature of the outdoors. shameful on them,to waste such a beautiful hotel and grounds by treating you like you don't know what service a luxury hotel should provide.

Beautiful gardens overlooking the Kineret lake where you can relax and rest. You can enjoy the assorted spa facilities and drink some wine while waiting your turn for the treatment you ordered or you are enjoying the facilities offered to you. Very friendly and effective staff at the spa resort.
Food - very tasty, abundant and you can be sure that you will find always what you like.
Enjoy the facilities indoors since the city itself has nothing to rave about.

Room Tip: If you can efford it try to book a suite in the "Doctor's Home". There are spacious an...

The Scot hotel in Tiberius is an isle of elegance and charm. The rooms, specially the old ones are beautiful ,spacious and spoiling( we loved the coffee machine).The meals were absolutely delicious with a big choice for all tastes.Very expensive but worth every penny if you want a special vacation.

Room Tip: Choose the old ones they make a big difference.

a hotel with a nice location, good view, nice garden, and excellent food quality.

i love the small garden that they have, very calm, quite and has a direct view to the galilee lake.
the food that they served are very excellent. i have the unforgettable taste for just simple sweet baked potato with cheese or a very fresh salad. i love the sweet cherry tomato there.
for the main course, the lamb stew, beef steak are also nice.
for dessert , their cheesecake is one of the best that i have,

Room Tip: galilee lake view or garden view will be nice

This is a First Class hotel on the Sea of Galilee in the town of Tiberias, Israel.
The rooms are wonderful although not overly large or impressive but what is impressive
are the meals. Breakfast, and Dinner (supper) are wonderful. The selection, presentation and taste is just magnificent. Some of my hardest decisions of the entire trip revolved around what I was going to eat! Sometimes it was a real dilemma because it all looked so good. You will enjoy your stay at Scots Inn and you will not miss a meal, guaranteed!

Room Tip: On the East side, overlooking the Sea of Galilee.

You will not be disappointed with your stay. We had a beautiful room in the Doctors Building overlooking the Sea of Galilee. From check in to checkout everything was great. It is not inexpensive but definitely worth the price.
