I stayed there with around 10 people as part of a retreat. Apart from accommodation, we had a dedicated multipurpose hall, our own menu for all meals and snacks in between. We spent 2 nights at the hotel in the newly built garden rooms (strongly recommended!!!!). The hotel is simple, very clean and service is top notch. The family running... More

This is a family owned hotel which offers clean comfortable rooms. The location is quiet and peaceful. The room I was in was below the main building. It was spacious and had a small terrace that offered a beautiful view of the valley and hills especially in the morning and early evening. The room was spacious and the airconditioning was... More

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

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.
