    WIFI never worked. Broken tub. Hairdryer that nearly caught on fire. And a waiter in Simpson's who clearly missed his calling as a villain in a soap opera. We were there for a special occasion and as the host hotel, expected much more.More

    I had a room with 2 queen beds, the room faced in towards the square, which is just beautiful at night. Room was very clean and comfortable I would happily stay again. Close to airport and restaurants

    Most hotels near airports are pretty awful. The hotels know you need to stay nearby, so service and quality are often lackluster. The Desmond is the exception to the rule. Good restaurants, friendly staff, good pool areas to tire out children. Comfortable rooms.
