“Solid 3*, gorgeous setting, good food, nice place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2011

Ohalo Manor is a solid three-star hotel right on the banks of the Kinneret (Sea of Gallilee), just north of Kibbutz Degania. It is owned by Kibbutz Kinneret but not on the same property or same side of the highway as the kibbutz so is self-contained. We (family of 4) paid $170 for half-board on Shabbat, and then paid NIS 50 (adult)/NIS 40 (child) for lunch. For Israel, this was very reasonable.

The Shabbat lunch was quite good--very fresh tasting, not dried out at all, so the kitchen appears to be under very good management. The rooms were very clean, the foam mattresses were comfortable, and we didn't have to share a bed with the children, which was nice. The hotel playground was decent. The views were spectacular. What makes this 3 star and not 4 is the lack of fancy finishings in the hotel--basic but nice.

The hotel is uphill from the Kinneret and takes under 5 mintues to get to the water. You can take a short hike in either direction along the water--south to the boatyard and Kibbutz Degania, north to a cemetary (that's as far as we went) and onwards towards Tiberias. The management said the municipalities were in the process of building a boardwalk around the lake, but this has not been finished yet.

The hotel is easy to find--located right off the highway. A hidden gem is that directly north of the perimeter fence of the hotel are Canaanite ruins dating 4,500 years old. We came upon them while wandering around and were very impressed. I would recommend the hotel.
