Gilboa Guest House
Ranked #1 of 2 Gidona B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Located in a small village of 200 people, a welcome change from the frenetic pace of some large cities. Beautiful views, total peace and quiet, large, clean room, felt like being in your own home.
Yulia was a wonderful host, and made us a delicious breakfast. We visited Gan Hashlosha, Beit Shean, and other sites within a short drive, and returned to the relaxed solitude of this small gated community.

Couldn't agree more with previous reviewers. Lovely, clean guest house with excellent taste and obvious care and planning. Big room, very convenient, things I love like thick towels in room, big beds, gorgeous view from the room, quiet good air conditioner, unlimited coffee in pleasant dining room. Also can sit outside in hammocks, swings- just comfy all around The manager Itzik is simply a charm, helpful, interesting, informative. Recommended a good inexpensive nearby restaurant, takes the time to help, explain local roads etc, Very good breakfast, an omelet made to order, good Israeli salads and cheese, fresh rolls. He insisted on warming up some rolls for us. Quite reasonably priced for what is offered. Excellent place if you are visiting Gan HaShlosha park (which is gorgeous) or nearby Mount Gilboa scenic route. Highly highly recommended.

We chose this hotel through the internet, because of the low price including breakfast.

We were so surprised to find this lovely brand new looking hotel with a wonderful view of the valley from room window, a personally cooked to order Israeli breakfast and location right under the Gilboa mountain! Staff was very helpful in planning our trip in the area and also gave us coupon tickets.

Best deal we have found in a long time. Is also a perfect place to come with a group or several families.

Great place to stay for exploring the Gilboa Mountains, the Sachna, he Kangaroo Park and the springs and rivers in the area.

Room Tip: Make sure the room faces the valley - I think most of them do.

We only stayed a night but it was great. Spacious and clean.room and a very good breakfast. The view from the panoramic windows is amazing. As we were visiting friends in the area the location was great. We will be back!

the location is great - at the base of the mountain looking down over the valley. The building is in good shape, well maintained, and has great views. The owner is very attentive, warm and friendly. I was in the valley for a meditation retreat for myself for a few days. He gave me a rattan mat to take with me to the mountains and the parks to sit on during my meditations. He reviewed the map with me and made sure everything I needed was taken care of.
Of special note, they provided soya milk with the delicious breakfast.
The room was large and well appointed (no blow dyer). The windows are amazingly large and open to the fresh air of the valley.
Call for directions and advice on your trip. I didn't call ahead and missed out on a Tibetan bowl massage!

Room Tip: ask for the view of the valley, top floor

The Gilboa/Benharim Guest House was off the beaten path and terrific. The staff were nice and very helpul, accommodations were comfortable and had a separate room for the kids, and the breakfast was great. We'd definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

We had an amazing weekend there. Excellent place, very quiet, amazing room view. Highly recommended !

It will be perfect if there was a refrigerator inside the room.

Room Tip: You can use all the facilities they offer to make your own barbecue.
