As many reviewers have said, the view is wonderful. As a birdwatcher, I was glad to find opportunties to ramble around the hillside next to the hotel, finding little owls, hoopoes and lesser whitethroats. the rooms are clean and the food reasonable. However, the biggest plus was the staff. From the polite waiters to the friendly guard who have me... More

The hotel has 2 sections, a more dated on with the restaurant and common areas and a new section with detached rooms overlooking the mountains. The hotel is around 5 kilometers from the Roman ruins It is on a turnoff as you leave town on the main road, so it does take some looking the first time to get to,... More

1) The environment is nice as the hotel is near to the top of the mountain. We had our dinner at the balcony and we do not have the best scene. There is very limited road sign and we cannot find it from the GPS we rented in Jordan 2) The room and the toilets are clean except the bath... More

I must say, finding this hotel was not an easy task, and if don’t have a good sat nav I would not suggest you to book here. Although when you arrive up there the amazing view totally makes up for it! The room was large and clean and with a large balcony to enjoy the view of the green hills... More

I'm in two minds on this place. Everything it does, it does very averagely. The rooms are clean and tidy, but lack any type of luxury like a fridge or the remote for the air conditioning (which you have to ask for at reception). It's nice that there is a pool, but it is unheated and even in the heat... More

Stayed overnight in Jarash at the only hotel in town. Were given the rooms in the new extension of the hotel directly overlooking the olive garden. Deco in the room was modern but basic, otherwise the room was comfortable and the air up the hills was fresh and crisp. WiFi is only available in the lobby. Breakfast selection was sparse... More

The Olive Branch is a nice hotel and in a great location on a hilltop surrounded by olive groves, there are attractive flower beds around the main building and in front of the new garden rooms, and the garden rooms themselves are spacious and comfortable, but the place lacks atmosphere. The dining room is huge but empty, service is slow... More

Ask for a garden room and enjoy magnificent views over the olive groves and mountains. This is a really good site - including a pergola & swimming pool - with a restaurant on site that offers simple good value food. Garden rooms are very large and come with en suite bathrooms and balconies. Some rooms can connect with the next... More
