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... More

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. More

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... More

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... More

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!... More

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... More

Amazing view, room was ok. The hotel itself could use some renovation. We were almost alone there, unbelievable. Friendly owner Restaurant could be better but breakfast was good Not to miss! Nice trip from Amman. You could pass via Ajloun.

I came here with my friend, it was our first night in Jordan after arriving at Amman airport at the stupid hour of 2am. We found ourselves at Olive Branch hotel at 6.30am and hoped that although we were incredibly early for our booking that evening we might be able to have a room to catch up on our sleep.... More

Nice location in the hills with green view. Book the newer rooms away from the main building. The main building needs refurbishment. Diner is mediocre and the dining room is even worse. Wifi only at the reception. In the 2nd week of april we were here all alone. Good starting point to visit Aljoun Castle/forest/Umm Qais and Jerash of course.... More
