The Scots Hotel, Tiberias

The luxurious Scots hotel was established by the Scottish Church in 2004 in the historical compound of the Scottish Hospital, and uniquely combines the 19th century basalt buildings with a modern and up-to-date hotel of international standards.
When planning the hotel, great emphasis was placed on conserving the character of the compound by producing a synergy between new and old and creating an atmosphere of calmness and mystery. The interior decoration combines the historical character of the buildings with the comfort required from a 5-star hotel. The hotel's staff consists of professionals from all religions, and knows how to provide the best service for those special moments.


The Scots Hotel is the perfect base for exploring, situated between green gardens and the Golan Heights, on the shores of the Sea of Galilee.
