I stayed at the Petra Bed and Breakfast hotel for two nights in January 2013, I had some small misgivings based on a recent Tripadvisor review which stated that the place was a bit cold, by the time I got there the hotels owners had installed a large wall heater which, in the event was not needed as the weather had improved. I was also supplied with more blankets to ensure that my bed was snug and warm.
The hotel was purpose built to the owners design with spacious en suite rooms and a large, comfortable communal sitting area with a television and coffee and tea making facilities upstairs. The hotel is situated on a hill which overlooks Wadi Musa and the views are great - especially in the morning.
Patricia and Eid live downstairs, Patricia keeps a good kitchen and a generous breakfast is served downstairs at hours to suit the guests, within reason of course.
Patricia and Eid were good hosts, providing free transport to and from Petra in Eid's pick up and a lot of useful information on the site and the town of Wadi Musa, they are an immensely likeable couple and I wish them every success in the future.
One small note - I read in the Rough Guide to Jordan that in Wadi Musa the locals are not as welcoming as in other parts of Jordan, my experience there was the opposite of this, as a solo male traveller I got many well meaning "Salaam's" and "Welcomes" from passers by as I walked through the town and quickly formed the opinion that Wadi Musa is a very pleasant place indeed .
