Our two nights here were a great break after the hectic bustle of jerusalem. The rooms are modest but comfortable. The quietness envelopes you except for the morning birds. There is virtually no car noise, and the pool offers relief on a hot day. A much nicer place to be to explore this area than starting off in the less...

Our room was very comfortable and we enjoyed a dip in the pool. We ordered dinner and the fish and chicken were excellent as was the bread! We enjoyed it, except for the steak which the two male members of our party had ordered. It was very expensive and unfortunately it had a lot of fat, gristle and bones -...

We arrived after a long hot journey from the Dead Sea and were given a very warm welcome, a cooling glass of lemonade and the key to the lovely swimming pool - perfect! Our room was at the very top of the house under the eaves and was comfortable and clean. The jacuzzi bath in the corner of the room...

We absolutely loved staying at Arbel Guest House. The owners were so welcoming and accommodating. The food was phenomenal! We had dinner there when we arrived. I would say it was one the best meals we've had in Israel, and there are many wonderful restaurants there. The owner makes a lot of his own food, such as jams, smoothies, sorbet,...

Shavit Family Guest House was the perfect location for us--central to the Galilee area, and an easy drive to Haifa, Akko, Banias, Nazareth, Zippori. We liked the fact that it was out of the resort areas of Tiberias, yet just a few minutes away from the sights we planned to see. The views of Galilee from the nearby Arbel Cliffs...

Unlike most local establishments, this place is extremely welcoming. The owners greet you with a smile and a warm drink and seem genuinely pleased that you are there. The guest house/restaurant is a gathering place where you can relax, read, and watch the chef in the kitchen. There is a small chocolate cave where you can taste and purchase chocolate...

The restaurant is very good also the breakfast! The owner is a really chef. Unfortunately the room was wery old, inside there was also a bad smell. We choose this guesthouse because the lonely planet guide write "beautiful rooms"...maybe twenty years ago!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Caution: there are similar guest house names in our location. Our guest house name is "Arbel Guest House Shavit Family." A unique farm guest house which is an attraction that no tourist can afford to miss: the atmosphere, the rooms and above all - the gourmet restaurant. This is one of the best places to enjoy a peaceful rest, gaining your energies for the next day of touring and enjoying the most wonderful dinner you have ever experienced. People say that the shavit guest house is a small model of the Garden of Eden: the trees, the flowers, the greenery, the swimming pool, the view, the air and the atmosphere. Others can never forget the gastronomic experience. The outstanding meat dishes served for dinner, the food preparation by "Chef ISRAEL" in front of the diners, the exquisite breakfast, and finally the secret chocolate cellar. Chef ISRAEL makes his own chocolate in the unique wine cellar aside from the wine variety, the olive oil products and the local honey. Our guest house is close to many historical sites in the area: - Jewish, Christian, Moslem and Druze. Arbel is within easy reach of all major centers in central and northern Israel (Golan Heights-Baines, Acre, Nazareth, Tabor, Capernaum, Tabha, Haifa, Safed, Caesarea, Bait- She' an) only one hour from us. We have apartments each with private bathroom and fitted kitchenette. Tea and coffee are freely available.* Self-catering * Breakfast and dinner are also available on request. ... more   less
