This is a nice hotel overlooking the Sea of Galilee. I booked one of the antique rooms and paid a premium for it - I was a little bit disappointed - for the price, I think they could have done a lot more with the room which had a lot of potential to be really amazing. That said, the room rate did include a fabulous, gourmet breakfast and dinner (not kosher) with a spread of delicious local products. If you do stay in the antique rooms, you have access to the balconies which are very nice places to sit and enjoy the view of the Sea of Galilee. The gardens are lovely too and there is a good sized swimming pool which you access via a bridge across the road. You can get spa services (massage etc..) but they are done in a converted guest room - there is no spa as such. Overall, this is a nice place to stay, and a good place for accessing the galilee area, I just would have expected a bit more luxury for the price I paid.
