We had an unfortunate turn of events which lead to an impromptu stay at Gilboa Guest House. We LOVED it. It was clean and comfortable and the owner was so friendly and helpful. The breakfast was an amazing spread - omelette, lots of dips, cheese and local specialities. We would not hesitate to return and experience great Israeli hospitality. Thank... More

When we arrived to the dining room itzik had already set the table just for us. He also prepared us omlets on demand,asking us how would we like to eat it. Very... More

We only made good experiences at that place. They offer free parking, a good breakfast, spacious rooms and very friendly and helpful staff. We'd stay there again if we were in this area. Gid'ona itself doesn't offer a lot but the surrounding is nice for hiking.
