The staff at the conference center are amazingly helpful. The food is beyond good and tasty.... it was delicious! My compliments to the chef. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

I have regularly stayed over a number of years as the hotel offers good conferencing facilities. The rooms are of varying standards so its worth paying a little more for the superior rooms which have king beds and are very comfortable. Mini Fridge in the room, coffee maker. The bathrooms are functional with a shower over the bath. Towels are...

Our room was very good. The hotel is very well kept. Most of the time we get a room with two queen beds but this time we were given a king size four poster bed. The bed was comfortable. The towels were super soft. We were surprised that there was no refrigerator in the room. There were some fridges in...

Stayed here for a wedding in Phoenixville, and the impeccable service provided by all the staff members greatly makes up for the somewhat dated facilities. The 'newly renovated' rooms are cosmetically pleasing, however the upgrades aren't throughout the entire room. Bed linens and pillows are extremely comfortable, but the mattress could use a feather top or mattress pad, and the...

I may be hypersensitive to language used in marketing materials. As a marketing person, I understand that marketing is usually slightly aspirational, but you need to be careful not to set unrealistic expectations. So when I saw the words premier and superior I was disappointed by the harsh florescent bathroom lighting and ancient, squeaky bed frame. The Pros: - Good...

Dear Celia, Thank you for staying with us and for your feedback about your bed and the light, your review helped us catch a bed that had become a tad loose and thus your experience. Our staff addressed the issue this morning, thank you for bringing that matter to our attention. Our team also softened the light in the bathroom...

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...

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