We booked a garden room but possibly because it's winter we ended up in an older room in the main building. Excellent views but the room needed modernizing and renovating, especially the bathroom. We enjoyed staying there though, thanks to the very friendly staff, especially the reception manager, and also the amazing hilltop location on the road between Jerash and...

Stayed overnight last week, and was so pleased we'd stayed here. The staff were friendly and attentive, and we were made to feel very welcome. It was my birthday, and the staff surprised me with a birthday cake - so unexpected, and such a kind gesture, which I won't forget. The hotel is out of town, perched up in the...

I was looking for a quiet place to spend the weekend and get away from all the noise in the city. Olive Branch was a great choice. The hotel is on a rise so the views from the room and the hotel in general are great. The hotel was quiet which was exactly what I was looking for. The service...

I was at this hotel for a conference. The owners are very friendly and speak good English. The food was very good and the views are amazing. There is a nice swimming pool. Great value. I would recommend getting one of the newer rooms below the main building of the hotel. My room was in the main building. There was...

Thank you Jennifer for your kind review. We are aware that most people prefer the new garden rooms. We have plans to renovate the main building as soon as the political situation in the area improves and tourism goes back to normal. Hope to see you again soon.

the most decent mid-range place in the area. the new rooms outside the main building are the best rooms: good-sized with balcony overlooking great views from the hill. best feature is the friendly and helpful staff. breakfast fare can still be improved.

Good option to visit the incredible Jerash roman site. Friendly, helpful staff giving advice on sites in the local area. Good for walking around Jerash. Visiting Ajloun castle and surrounds. Swimming pool available, with great views over rolling hills with olive groves.

We really enjoyed staying at the Olive Branch. We stayed in one of the newer rooms out front. The view was wonderful. It is a peaceful, secluded place. The rooms were clean and quite spacious. The wifi in our room was some of the best we had on our trip to the middle east. Breakfast was better than average for...

Thank you for your kind review. We appreciate your feedback. We are located about 7km from the center of town. As you mentioned, we believe that the peaceful atmosphere and great views are worth the inconvenience of being away from the center of town with it's traffic and noise. Thank you again for visiting our peaceful country and for staying...

This hotel has clean rooms and very friendly staff and owners.. it s a nice place to have clean air. Great for organizations who need to make retreats for a group of people.. been their with the orchestra to train, they were very helpful in providing everything needed. They added a new section which is much nicer of course

Friendly welcome by owner. Room was comfortable and clean with a lovely view. We were the only people staying, so we had the whole place to ourselves. The restaurant was basic but food was ok and reasonable price considering how remote the hotel is. Nice local wine. The breakfast was HUGE... a lot of little things and we were full!...

Given the location there isn't much choice but it still offers an average accommodation solution. Guess without competition means prices and amenities are not tested so felt a little over priced compared to other Jordan cities like Malaba with other options. Hard to find thanks to Google Maps but the OB signs near the hotel helped us find it in...
