We were in a party visiting Galilee, and stopped here for lunch. We were greeted at the door by a lady with a brisk manner, who pointed out the washrooms, and guided us to the dining hall, where there were probably another 250 people on similar tours already having lunch. Service was quick, the food was good, and the local 'Golan' red wine very acceptable. The only difficulty we encountered was when we tried to pay for a soft drink in US dollars, and the waitress had no idea of exchange rates, but the problem was resolved quite quickly. Afterwards the normal queue began to form outside the ladies' toilets, but the brisk lady reappeared, and guided the waiting to other facilities.

Very clean, right on the Sea of Galilee (Kinneret). Although we could not see the water from our room.

Terrific breakfast, free wifi in lobby, nice pool. Make sure you have a meal at Restaurant Roberg in nearby Livnim.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the sea..

The rooms at Nof Ginosar are simple but very comfortable and clean. The location is great and is an excellent base for exploring the North of Israel. The food is amazing. We looked forward to every meal.

Nof Ginosar is a great place for a family vacation. The grounds and rooms are very clean and comfortable. The food and service is good. The hotel is located on the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee), so one could either swim in the lake or the pool. For a family this has all the activities for small children or adults.

We stayed not in the hotel itself, but in Ginosar village, which is across the parking lot from the hotel. We were 5 people, so we got like a house with living room and bedroom and one bathroom. Very nice porch! There are 3-4 rooms for 1 porch, but we were the only ones on ours and it was very nice! The territory of the hotel/village is huge! Lots of nature for kids to run around. Pool, private beach. Paradise for kids!!! Also, they have playroom for kids with fusball, billiard, ping-pong, but we didn't even have time to enjoy this. The territory is just too great and it's just huge!
The room itself is pretty basic. 3 beds in living room, king bed in bedroom. 2 TV sets with cable. Air conditioner, small kitchen with fridge. No bathtub! Grill next to the house, so u can bring your own meat and make a BBQ.
The restaurant is in the hotel (so, across the parking lot), but the food is so-so. Breakfast is OK. Dinner not, not much variety and not very good. I'd recommend booking breakfast only and making BBQ!
On the last day I heard there were cockroaches in the room, but I didn't see them myself. My mother-in-law who came with us claims she killed 4! But as I'm very hysterical about these things, I made sure to avoid the subject and later on we just checked out.
In general, perfect setting for family with kids, just bring your own dinner and beware of roaches! (And also roaming cats and dogs from the near by kibbutz). Nature, have I mentioned?

My wife and I stayed here 18-20 (2 nights) as part of a 10 person tour group. NG is a special kibbutz experience and hence no usual "hotel" comparisons are fair.

A functional room with the usual amenities plus a small 2 person balcony was comfortable. In today's wired world in-room Internet would've helped but excellent free Internet was available in the lobby. Views are over the kibbutz and rooms facing into the garden from upper floors are recommended.

At full steam the dining hall was a sea of people but breakfast and dinner was managed efficiently. The food was excellent and we had to get used to some oddities in the Jewish way of meals! But it wasn't any problem at all.

Service always carried a smile and a request for an electrical adapter was promptly dealt with.

Overall, a very good experience and would be recommended.

We spend a summer family vacation in the hotel. The rooms are very basic but mostly clean. The swimming pool is very small and too crowded. But our main disappointment was the food. The children dishes were very limited, and the hot dogs in the children area were hot chorizos that my kids could not eat. The kids and the adults in our group had a very limited selection of food, and when we told the "chef" about it he said that there is nothing he could do about it. We wrote a letter to the manager of the hotel while checking out, but the response never came.

After this visit, we feel that we cannot come back to this hotel, despite the nice atmosphere.
