My company recently hosted two separate events at The Desmond. The staff at The Desmond are skilled, courteous and simply a dream to work with. The kitchen has the ability to put together a truly stunning meal. I highly recommend using them for corporate and private events.

Personalized service throughout. A small property, but well-situated. Rooms are larger than average and comfy. Convenient restaurant and bar are located in the lobby too. Definitely the best choice in the Malvern area.

We love the Desmond Deck with Sinatra Wednesdays during the summer. The singers are excellent and there is room to dance. The waiters are great, especially Ed. Beautiful location for a summer night. It is not a typical hotel bar place, so bring your own dance partner! Food is inconsistent. One day the bruschetta is fresh, another day it is...

We stayed here for four nights. When we had read some of the negative reviews we almost cancelled, but we decided to follow thru. The rooms have been renovated and are quite nice. The shower has nice pressure (not just a few drips). Our first night there we had drinks and supper on the back deck, it was so relaxing...

This hotel was part of a QVC Weekend package. Although I didn't select to stay here, the hotel is very nice. We had dinner (on our own, not as part of the QVC group) at the Fox & Hound, adjacent to the hotel lobby. The food was good, but the service was very slow. However, I don't think the restaurant...

Although we didn't have power our entire stay due to a storm that passed through the staff did all they could to make us comfortable. With no power for air conditioning and an emergency generator that didn't work it was a hot day and night, but the hotel staff did everything possible to make a bad situation as pleasant as...

I don't understand how this hotel gets such high ratings, can't be their rooms. We were up all night as the 25 year old A/C system cycled on & off....on = sound of old VW redlining 1st gear....off = loud clunk. Then I get to enjoy the 1980's vintage water-saver shower nozzle. Gross to look at and good for about...

In June 2015 had a family wedding and the Desmond is where our out of town guests stayed. The Desmond staff could not have been more attentive, even working to solve problems that they did not create. We had 100 guests and they enjoyed the rooms and service. Front desk manager Bill was very attentive. Sales rep Samantha was very...

Hands down the BEST hotel I have stayed at in a very long time! I traveled to the area to take advantage of their “Girlfriends Great Escape” package – which I originally thought was a little pricey for my taste. But, I can tell you firsthand, it was money completely well spent! When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by...

“It may be a long walk but if you have a room at the end of the hall it may be quieter.”

“Location of the hotel is in an suburban-like setting so the rooms are probably quiet everywhere (unless you have noisy neighbors).”
