Stayed 2 nights at Scots hotel and totally enjoyed our stay. They have wonderful gardens with a great view of the Sea of Galilee! Rooms have an old rustic charm and beds are comfortable! We loved the place and will definitely be back again!👍

I stayed here for a night with a tour group, and stayed in the newer portion of the building. The room was fairly simply appointed, but was good sized and comfortable. I didn't have any problems with the TV, as other reviewers apparently had to deal with. Both the dinner and breakfast buffets were fantastic, with a huge variety and... More

I have come to the conclusion that there must not be a decent place to stay in Tiberius if the Scots Hotel is supposed to be the top hotel in town. Traveling around the country with another couple my husband and I spent one sad night in this poor excuse for a hotel! The stay went from bad to worse... More

We stayed here in the Doctor's House for three nights while touring Israel with a Christian group. we took breakfast and dinner here. Among the six hotels we stayed in over a 16-day period, we liked this hotel the best. The room was very large, with high ceilings, and the bathroom had great fixtures and copious amounts of hot water.... More

Located in an old and wonderfully renovated old hospital located on the west shore of the sea of Galilee at the old city of Tiberius sits this gorgeous romantic boutique small 5 star hotel. Modern spacious rooms, polite, helpful and efficient service, beautiful terrace gardens with view to the lake and the Golan heights, good and plentiful buffet meals. Reasonably... More

Stayed at the Scots hotel for two nights during the course of a trip to Israel. We booked an antique room overlooking the sea of Galilee. The location of the hotel is wonderful and the view from the room was as advertised. The room itself though spacious was cheaply appointed. The linen was poor quality and towels very thin. The...

Having spent 2 nights with my partner at Scots in March of this year (2015), I simply cannot believe how it has achieved such good ratings hitherto. The rooms are 'OK' (Just!), but the food is dreadful. It claims 5 star standards, but what 5 star hotel serves a buffet (serve yourself) dinner. The food was luke warm, very poor... More

In our feedback form after a weekend at the Scots Hotel we have highly praised all suggested classifications but on both “will you come again?” and “will you recommend this hotel to others?” we have stated a “NO !!!”. The site is gorgeous, rooms are fantastic; overall maintenance and celandines, just perfect; food, absolutely excellent; service and staff friendliness, remarkable... More

Not your typical hotel. It's a cluster of small buildings originally designed as a local Scottish hospital. Situated on a hilltop and overlooking the Sea of Galilee, the view is tremendous. Roman ruins are located within its well manicured gardens. A delicious buffet breakfast awaits every morning. A great place to both start and end a local Israeli tour or... More
