“Dont believe it when they say every room has a view!”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

This hotel was part of our bus tour and pilgrimage to Israel. The rooms were very outdated, the beds were hard as a rock, and needed renovating. Buffet food was okay, nothing special, and a little on the greasy side. When you read their website it says every room has a view....ours was of the garbage that was literally strewn on the ground. No one in our group had a view of the Sea of Galilee, very disappointing.

This is a nice hotel, over the hill in Tiberias. Rooms were fairly clean and nice. You need a car or a Taxi to get to the port and the restaurants area, thats the only bad part of the hotel.
They have a nice outside pool which was not open due to the weather.

The hotel looks out over the northern end of the Sea of Galilee. We enjoyed our stay (as as part of a tour) and there were some strong positives - the view from our room and the dining and lounge areas, the quality of food. But the level of cleanliness was not ideal - a dead cockroach in the corridor outside our room for over 24 hours, and rooms that are 'cleaned' but probably not properly clean. The hotel was over-booked on our first night and our (Palestinian) tour guide needed to get accommodation elsewhere, which was very unfortunate. Staff were mixed. Some amazingly helpful - some grumpy or surly. Hence 'average rating for Service.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Sea of Galilee.

Good hotel in a great location with panoramic views of the Sea of ​​Galilee. Big rooms but worn and need for renovation. Good and varied breakfast buffet and dinner buffet. Not open wifi, very expensive to purchase! Nice staff. Nice pool. Free parking.

Our family stayed here for three nights about ten days ago. We had two rooms, both with superb views over the Sea of Galilee. Our rooms were clean, comfortable and pleasant.
Breakfasts and evening meals were superb - enormous buffets with a very wide choice to suit every palate.
My only gripe was that we had a problem with the water in our room - only very hot water, no cold - and the hotel seemed quite uninterested in sorting it out. Eventually it was sorted out. I have no way of knowing if this is an unusual event or not.

The rooms are average, but the staff is great. Helped me find a doctor when I needed one and then got me to and from the pharmacy. Good food and attentive staff. Great view and an awesome location right across from the Sea of Galilee. I would stay here again if I was in the area.

Very friendly staff. A nice family run hotel (better than the big chain hotels).
Location has a breathtaking view of the Sea of Galilee. is well located for the visitors interested in this area of the Holy Land. The hotel also offers very good breakfast and dinner. Nice size swimming pool.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony facing the Sea of Galilee (if available).
