My husband and I were planning to spend a romantic night away. We called ahead (before booking the room) to make sure that the check-in time is not too late as we only had one night. They said that even though it is a Saturday night check-in is at 3PM and usually even earlier if the room is ready and that we should come earlier to enjoy the facilities. We arrived at 1:30 and they told us to wait. An hr later when we came to see what's the room status they told us that check in on Saturdays is only at 5PM (even though there was a big sign in the reception area stating that check in is 3PM). Only after we insisted they gave us the room (was it available the whole time?!).
Before breakfast we went for a run in the gym. We came back to the room to discover there is no hot water in the shower. When we called reception they told us that someone is coming right up to fix it. 15 minutes later no one showed up. we called again and were told that this was a problem in the building but they forgot to call us back. Meanwhile, no hot water and the breakfast serving is almost over. Only after we insisted it is their problem they agreed to keep the restaurant open for us.
Because it took them so long to fix the hot water we were left with very little time to enjoy the facilities and overall got to spend less than 24 hrs in the hotel (as they did insist on the check out time).
BTW- both me and my husband wrote to the hotel and were promised (in an automated email) to hear back from them.
After a month has passed I can assume they do not plan t o get back to us.

Weekend visit in the hotel with a group - the hotel is comfortable, good room with a beautiful view of the Galilee Sea, good wifi . But the true 5 stars power is in the charming location, outstanding high quality health breakfast, excellent service, music and overall peace of mind. Easy access to Tiberias' historical sites

We spent two nights at this hotel while touring in the area. The hotel is still operated by the Church of Scotland - and was a nice change of pace. The hotel is just across the street from the Sea of Galilee - make sure to request a room facing the water and catch a beautiful sunrise. There is a path to the water's edge and the grounds of the hotel are beautiful.

We stayed here in early November 2015. We booked an "antique room" type of suite. There are two separate buildings, with eight of these, I think, type of rooms in them. There are two floors and we were on the first overlooking the Sea of Galilee, but not from the bedroom windows, just from the entrance to the building. The room was spacious with a separate couch coffee table, small dining table, with two chairs and a desk with mirror above it and chair. Tall ceilings with exposed stone on the outside side wall with deep windows for luggage storage. The TV cabinet had 4 shelves behind the doors. The hanging closet was in the hall way, with an area of drawers next to it and the nice mini bar cabinet. The bathroom was square with a combo large rain shower and hand held tub. There was a large shelf behind the tub next to the sink and a nice sized counter on either side of the large wash basin.
We arrived late afternoon and just wanted to have a light dinner. They have a lovely intimate bar area above the restaurant with a nice seating area and a fire place. We ordered "bar food" and it was great.
Breakfast and dinner are a buffet extravaganza, that rivals some of the best five star hotels we have stayed at. The dinner is a set price of @ 270 NIS each, but well worth it. The carved chargrilled roast was unbelievable, as was the Neapolitan. I cook and know good outstanding cuisine. The croissants and other pastries are memorable.
We also had bar food the last night of our stay, after sight seeing all day and packing. I had the best cheese ravioli with a cream sauce that I have ever had. We have been raving about this chef and were told in a wine shop in Jerusalem down from the King David hotel in the new Manila mall that this Israeli chef at the Scots Hotel was well known in Israel. The fitness, spa center and pool are reached over a small wood bridge over the road on the Galilee side. The fitness center overlooks the Sea of Galilee.
We would go back to this destination hotel in a heart beat. It is about 30 minutes south of all the most important north Galilee sights.

The hotel is located in the most beautiful spot, overviewingg the Sea of Galilee. The rooms especially the Antique Rooms are marvellous. The garden is beautiful. Let alone the wine cellar and the food. If you travel North you have to stay at this spot, and it may happen you will find it hard to move on and stay longer than planned.....

Room Tip: Perfectly set, overlooking the Sea of Galilee, best spot to stay when you travel farther North, beautiful landscape,
