We had been in Jordan a few weeks already when we arrived at the Jerash and were quite happy to have a few days just loafing around and not doing a great deal. The Olive Branch proved an ideal place for this. With a huge,...More
The best times of this hotel are far over. As we arrived we were the only guests along with one bike-camper. The rooms are all old, almost everything is worn down and in poor conditions. Under one pillow we've found some mouse dirt. Really, I...More
This hotel has so much potential - it is in the most beautiful countryside (rather like Tuscany) but it is tired and dated. You arrive up the drive and can see that there were once beautifully tended flowerbeds but it is all rather overgrown now....More
We stayed one night at the Olive Branch to visit the ruins and Al Ajloun castle - as other reviewers have mentioned there are only two hotels in the area so there isn't much choice and the hotel was more expensive than others of a...More
It feels a bit like a youth hostel, indeed, as an other reviewer put it, but staff was very friendly. Check out a few rooms before you unpack. The first tow rooms we were shown weren't too good but the third was large and had...More

is this hotel within walking distance to Jerash ruins site?
We won't have a car, but walking a mile or so each way would pose no problem if route is safe to do so.

It is not very convenient walking to the ruins from the hotel. Even though it stands in a very beautiful quiet location with breath taking scenery, it is quite far from everything. It takes 10-15 minutes by (cheap) taxi to the ruins. It could take around 1 hour jogging/ walking if you fancy a hike. However, the road is full of hills. It would be a nice run in the morning going down the hill, but would not recommend coming up - also depending on the weather
