FOOD was the star
Really nice family who showed care to their guests, property was lush with fruit trees and flowers, pool was ok. Our room was the attic room and we did NOT like the room at all. It was run down, old, dirty and the a/c barely worked. We were disappointed in the room and the offered us another room for one night and it was a big difference and what we were expecting. The food was excellent as mentioned in other reviews and I highly recommend eating at the hotel for breakfast.

Unique bed and breakfast - highly recommend
We absolutely loved staying at Arbel Guest House. The owners were so welcoming and accommodating. The food was phenomenal! We had dinner there when we arrived. I would say it was one the best meals we've had in Israel, and there are many wonderful restaurants there. The owner makes a lot of his own food, such as jams, smoothies, sorbet, ice cream, limoncello, etc. They have so many fruit trees growing on property, and most of the food was either home made, or from local area. Definitely recommend looking in the basement, where the owner makes his own chocolate, jams and limoncello. Breakfast was really good too. The owner surprises you with every meal. We were so impressed. The grounds are beautiful with beautiful views of the mountain. Room was basic, but comfortable. We would love to return one day. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Wonderful Food
First, the best points. This bed and breakfast is run by a skilled chef so the meals, breakfast and dinner, are outstanding both in taste and presentation. The family that runs this are sweet, kind, and friendly. You will feel like you are staying with dear friends. This Guest House is about 5 kilometers from the town of Tiberias, public transportation is minimal, unless you are driving a car you will be limited to eating and local hiking.

Great Guest House, Fantastic Breakfast!
First and foremost, when you stay, get the breakfast. It was amazing! Best I've had in Israel, probably one of the best I've ever had both in terms of breadth of spread, freshness, and just overall, it was fantastic! Guest house is located up from the Sea of Galilee (Yam Kinneret) just outside Tiberias. Wonderful views, cliffs within walking distance, and an old ruined synagogue along a path all in relatively short walking distance from the guest house. There is a chocolate cellar where you can sample their homemade chocolates. The entire house is among extensive gardens which you are welcome to pick the fresh fruit from, my wife and I quite enjoyed the citrus. Our room was a small suite with jetted tub in the bedroom, a sitting room, a kitchenette, a balcony, and a private bath. It was clean and wonderful. I can't speak to the in room wi-fi as we did not elect to purchase or use it but there is a wonderful dining room / lounge where they have free wi-fi if you need. Also, the espresso machine is open for self-service throughout your stay if you're so inclined. It is a wonderful place to stay. My wife and I regret not having dinner as the breakfast was that good. I would highly recommend this place. I wish we had stayed longer than the one night. At check-in they were very friendly and helpful and had numerous suggestions for local eateries. Only complaint was the mattress was too soft for my liking.

Wonderful stay in a great guest house
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Arbel. Situated in a small settlement outside of Tiberias, away from the hustle of the city, made this stay perfect. The Shavit family are great hosts. The breakfast is outstanding and the dinner was perfect. Having a jetted tub in the room added to our couple get away. We would be happy to stay here again should our travels bring us to this area.
