Stayed at the Desmond for a conference in October. The conference facilities are for the most part quite good. Internet connection was good and the meals were fine. On the other hand the hotel needs a facelift more or less across the board. The rooms are quite dated. The pillows are horrible. Random hairs in the sheets and bathroom were...

Dear Singdunum011; Thanks for your review, and your feedback. I'm glad you generally liked your visit and I am sorry about the pieces that weren't up to our standard. Our pillows are all synthetic down, and generally well received. I'll look into all comments regarding your room. We will continue to make improvements to our property as we do every...

This was a wedding trip. The rooms, as many say, need updating. The doors and walls are thin so you hear everything in the halls and the room next door. Room and bath were clean, though there was a water stain from a slow drip under the sink that had not been addressed. They are understaffed in the restaurants. Breakfast...

We stayed at the Desmond for a wedding that was held at another venue. The after party and breakfast was held at the Desmond. They did a wonderful job all around. The rooms were so beautiful and comfortable. I highly recommend the Desmond Hotel.

The room was on the dark side, unless all the lamps were progressively turned on. The 4 poster bed appeared rather charming but the mattress quality was poor, stiff, & uncomfortable. The sheets didn't feel soft and the thin blanket between the sheets wasn't warm enough, but when the bedspread was used as well, it felt too hot. Enough outlets...

As we stay only for one night in Malvern we. choose the Desmond as the Marriott was 100 bucks more expensive. The Desmond was aus expected, Service and room was good. Interieur looks very conservative, no change over years. Restaurant Fox & Hound offers Snacks and Drinks. Breakfast not included, except Company regulations.

We stayed here three nights as part of a group gathering celebrating a prep school reunion nearby. The rooms were clean, the service was very good, and the a la carte breakfast was tasty but expensive, We learned that on Sunday morning, the a la carte breakfast ends and you must order the buffet. Glad we got in the dining...

This hotel left a lot to be desired. When I checked in I had just driven over three hours so when I noticed the carpet wasn't vacuumed I didn't want to complain. Once I went to shower, there was a bunch of hair right next to faucet, very easy to be seen and some left over lotion on the floor...

The Desmond really knows how to treat their customers like reality. My wife and I have dined there many times and have always found it very enjoyable. Be sure to try their bread pudding. We have also had large groups, family birthdays and our daughters wedding there. Each visit and event they treat us great

Stayed for a business trip in August of 2016. The hotel is antiquated and the room has old and dirty furniture. Maybe "antique"? There was food / leftovers from prior guest under the bed (disgusting). The bathtub was clearly old and there was little to not pressure on the shower. Disgusting experience. I hope I will never stay there again.

“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).”
