This part of the Galilee is simply beautiful. The picturesque city of safed is just a few minutes away. If you have a car you can be in wine country in just 20 minutes. There are large wineries like Galil and Dalton, as many smaller ones including ben Zimra, Ramot Naftali, Amrams and the unusual Rimon whose wines are made from pomegranates. There is also a nice micro brewery Butterfly located right next to the Dalton winery. There are great Pine forests for hiking, the hula nature reserve , and Jordan river rafting all within a 30 minute drive . But this is also the sticking point - you must have transportation.
I found the food a bit uneven, some was excellent especially the salads and breads, other times is was just OK. The flexible breakfast -brunch hours allows you to get a glass of fresh “squeeze it yourself” orange juice and go workout for an hour, shower and then come back for a real breakfast. There are plenty of corners for you to curl up with a book or use their free internet access . The pool is heated and clean. Most of the rooms are really nice The staff is nice and very helpful.
The actual location of the hotel is really the pits. Its hard to find, so make sure you really get good directions. Although you do have a great view, you are essentially in middle of a neighborhood. This isn’t too conducive for walking. The prices are high and probably aren’t justified unless you can get a good deal from your travel agent or on the internet. Many of the visitors are groups brought by unions or community centers.
Recommended as long as you simply want quiet ( no children allowed) and don’t mind having to use a car as soon as you exit the door. If you expect night life, to do activities, a short walk to a pub or site seeing at night without getting into a car - you will be disappointed.
