Lovely cool garden full of fruit trees. Great pool to relax by. A really good breakfast that kept us going until dinner. Very friendly family running the place, nothing was too much trouble. Ideal point from which to explore the region. Some rooms a little better than others but would definitely visit again.

The place is managed by the Shavit family. To name it a guest-house does't cover the meaning of it. The location is surrounded by vegetation, flowers and cliffs (See Arbel Cliff). You are not received as part of a "check-in" service - you are actually welcomed home. All the rooms are air-conditioned, bathrooms are large, free wifi all over, cable...

Walking the Jesus Trail I arrived at the Arbel Guest House sweaty, muddy and tired. I enjoyed a warm welcome, the fabulous swimming and a outstanding diner, with lots of local produce. Great place. Will definitely visit again!

Hello, I spent 1 night at this place. At first, I was quite disappointed, because they give us a room in the alley, and being 6.1ft it was quite hard for me the stand inside. If I was alone, I would probably ask to move to a room with a higher ceiling (and maybe it was possible, though I doubt...

If your travels find you near the historic sites around the Sea of Galilee, I would recommend staying at the Arbel Guest House. Wonderful innkeepers, delicious food at the restaurant, clean rooms, nice pool, all at a reasonable price.

With all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor I was expecting A LOT more. One thing to take into account when reading my review, my family and I are strictly kosher, so we did not eat the food offered by the B&B. Based on the other reviews it seems that is a big highlight of the B&B. Let me start with...

My husband, son (13), daughter (10) and I spent a night in a 2 bedroom apartment. Clean and enough room. Gefen was a wonderful host. Extremely informative and such a delight to talk with. The pool was perfect after a long day touring. It was terrific being "off the beaten path," but truly when you know the area, it is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Caution: there are similar guest house names in our location. Our guest house name is "Arbel Guest House Shavit Family." A unique farm guest house which is an attraction that no tourist can afford to miss: the atmosphere, the rooms and above all - the gourmet restaurant. This is one of the best places to enjoy a peaceful rest, gaining your energies for the next day of touring and enjoying the most wonderful dinner you have ever experienced. People say that the shavit guest house is a small model of the Garden of Eden: the trees, the flowers, the greenery, the swimming pool, the view, the air and the atmosphere. Others can never forget the gastronomic experience. The outstanding meat dishes served for dinner, the food preparation by "Chef ISRAEL" in front of the diners, the exquisite breakfast, and finally the secret chocolate cellar. Chef ISRAEL makes his own chocolate in the unique wine cellar aside from the wine variety, the olive oil products and the local honey. Our guest house is close to many historical sites in the area: - Jewish, Christian, Moslem and Druze. Arbel is within easy reach of all major centers in central and northern Israel (Golan Heights-Baines, Acre, Nazareth, Tabor, Capernaum, Tabha, Haifa, Safed, Caesarea, Bait- She' an) only one hour from us. We have apartments each with private bathroom and fitted kitchenette. Tea and coffee are freely available.* Self-catering * Breakfast and dinner are also available on request. ... more   less
