“Ok hotel but high prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

If you find yourself in Tiberias this is the only nice hotel in town. The rooms were ok, but not a great value given the price.

The service was spotty as well and the front desk was extremely rude to us when we complained about the communal iron ruining my husband's shirt as we were getting ready for a wedding. For a hotel of this class, they should listen to their customers better.

The grounds are superb as well as the food - the included breakfast is to die for - lots of homemade pastries, egg dishes, fresh fruits, vegetables, jams, etc. They even have homemade honey.

This is an old brick building which was once a hospital.
The history of the hotel and the story of Dr Tourance from Scotland , who managed it are outstanding.
great location
private beach & outdoor swimming-pool- just across the street over a private bridge(!)
walking distance from the Sea and promenade
The only downside is the price....
It is nor cheap...
And the Spa - even more ...

Room Tip: Yes- pay a bit extra -spoil yourself to Sea-View On a clear day you might see someone walking on th...

We stayed at the hotel for two nights. Great hotel. The food was amazing. The staff was very nice and welcoming. The weather this time of the year is very good. We did two massages , each one of us did one, and they were very relaxing. A++

The Scots hotel in downtown Tiberias near the Sea of Galilee is a comlex of buildings some new and other were the Scots hospital which were renovated I stayed in the new building.
A first class hotel in all aspects with a touch of magic , highly recommeneded.
Breakfast and supper were the best food i had in Israel's hotels with great variety perhaps because it is not "kosher".The Spa and Fitness center staff are very qualiffied and professional.
The hotel , the rooms , the public places are very clean .The hotel has a nice private pool and parking place for no charge.

We had already toured Tel Aviv, Roman ruins, and Scotts Hotel was a welcome relief. Beautiful beyond description. Quiet, after the hustle of Tel Aviv, it was so welcome, so peaceful.
Fabulous food, lamb with sauerkraut for dinner was a crowed pleaser...I tried to get the recipe but could not.Lovely scotch bar, my son had just completed ulpan at Kibbutz Yagur, and the bartender awarded him a shot of a very smokey whiskey, how very sweet, it made our trip so much more personal.
Tiberious itself is best ignored, it reminded me of Brooklyn, 'nuf said?

Room Tip: You want to get one of the older rooms.

For me this is not the first time. And probably not the last.
The rooms, the service, the restaurant, the lake, the view of the Golan Heights, just continue like this.

Staff dedicated to the visitors.
Chef prepares excellent food and impressive submission
Beautiful rooms and very clean

Room Tip: Worth a try, will not be disappointed
