  • 1000 stars. I cannot emphasize enough how fantastic the Desmond was. We were a covid couple who decided to put things off from summer, 2020 to summer, 2021. I have told everyone I know planning a wedding to look especially at the covid shutdown era reviews, because that will tell you which venues/vendors will work with you when you are hit with the unpredictable. We were able to seamlessly postpone our wedding without a fuss or any extra fees: the policy was if the Desmond could not give us the wedding of our dreams within 8 weeks of the wedding, we could postpone without any stipulations. Kevin was fantastic. Throughout this process, he was reassuring, calming, positive, and would take time to talk to us on the phone about any questions we had. For our final planning meetings, we were always with Kevin for at least 2 hours: he made sure every little detail was what we wanted and took the time to connect with us on a personal level. The wedding day itself was seamless. We both live out... Read more

  • I highly recommend the Desmond for anyone hosting a large event. We had close to 60 wedding guests in 30 rooms for two days and nights and everyone had a wonderful time. The business manager, event planner and transportation coordinator made it easy for us although we had to reschedule three times due to COVID. The staff did their best to accommodate all our requests including early check- ins even though the hotel was sold out. Shuttle arrangements were handled for us including several last minute changes. The breakfast buffet we hosted was excellent. All in all excellent staff and a full service hotel in a great location.

  • We had a breakfast at the Desmond Malvern on the 1st floor Deck with Awning the morning after our daughter's wedding. It was the perfect ending to a perfect weekend. I worked with Shelly-Ann, who helped decide what type of menu to have for our guests (we used an a la carte breakfast menu) and provided the vouchers for the guests who attended. Vouchers were for guests at the Desmond Hotel and also for our friends and family who did not stay at the Desmond. She was so easy to work with and answered all my questions. The deck where breakfast was set up was wonderful! Nice breeze, there must be a waterfall close by, because there was the sound of flowing water beyond the deck ~ so relaxing! Our servers were friendly and very accommodating, and we were encouraged to stay as long as we wanted. I would recommend the Desmond to my family and friends, both for the cleanliness and adherence to COVID-19 standards, and to the excellent service they provided.

  • You can’t go wrong with the Desmond to host your wedding! We had to change our date three times due to Covid and Karen/Kevin we’re understanding, flexible, organized, and responsive. As a bride, I truly appreciated this. The food and outdoor deck were incredible! Several of our guests raved about it and said it was one of the best weddings they’ve attended. Look no further - you will be in great hands! I am so happy and grateful we chose the Desmond.

  • If you have any plans on getting married, I beg you to look no further and sign with The Desmond. As a COVID bride, I would like to say that the incredible team at The Demond went above and beyond to ease every anxiety, fear, and problem I approached them with. The flexibility was unmatched. I've been hearing horror stories of other couples not being able to move their date or not being able to transfer deposits and let me tell you, The Desmond is there FOR YOU! I worked with Kevin and Andy and what a dynamic duo they are. The listened to every. single. detail. They were answering questions before I could ask them and they did it all with a smile under their mask (I could just tell, ya know? :) ). Our wedding day exceeding our expectations and the expectations of our guests because of every single staff member at The Desmond. We signed 2 years ago because the professionalism and experience was obvious and it's also a beautiful hotel, but I couldn't be happier learning how compassion... Read more

  • From the moment I found The Desmond, I knew it was a special place. As an out-of-state bride, I depended a lot on TheKnot reviews and found many outstanding reviews. Within hours of sending a message for information, I had heard from Karen, who would remain my point person for the next 18 months of wedding planning. Since all of our guests would be traveling for our wedding, it was very important to me that my guests were able to stay somewhere nice after a night of partying so finding a venue in a hotel was ideal. I had made a couple of trips to the area to visit venues, and fortunately, on that first trip, I did visit The Desmond. I was immediately taken back by the charm that the reception hall had. The cocktail area was beautiful and bright with many windows and would be ours for the night. The reception room itself was intimate and romantic with beautiful molding and chandeliers. Even better, The Desmond was undergoing renovations which to my happy surprise meant a new dance floor... Read more

  • We got married June 22nd 2019 at the Desmond Hotel. Our ceremony was at the gazebo and our reception was on the deck. We also had our rehearsal dinner on location as well. Beautiful location and easy “one-stop- shop.” The day couldn’t have been more perfect. Both Kevin’s were absolutely fabulous! They were both very attentive and relieved all of my stress that weekend. Everything was set up exactly how I imagined and the food was amazing. I would definitely recommend The Desmond for any event, especially weddings.

  • The Desmond hosted both my sister's wedding and mine, so we are repeat customers! They are timely with responses, the venue is perfect, lodging is right there, the food is GREAT, and best of all, they basically set up everything for you. You bring your own DJ and photographer, although they can give you some recommendations. They do the food, but contract with a few bakers and a florists, so you don't need to hunt for one (we went with who was closest to us). Then everything else is taken care of. Everyone with whom we worked was very polite, gracious, and understanding of our time constraint (we had 6 weeks to plan), but it was everything we thought it would be and more!

  • The Desmond is the place to get married! I reached out to them with 8 months until my day and was able to get everything I needed. Karen is incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and responsive. She was there for every part of the planning process and made sure everything was perfect the day of. She also was flexibly in her availability for meeting. I live in NYC and was only available to meet during limited times. The day of was amazing. The food was delicious and the whole event space was set up exactly how I wanted it. The guests said the food was amazing and that it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to!

  • The team at The Desmond was incredibly professional and helpful in walking us through the planning process. They were more than willing to review all possible options. There was never anything I asked for that couldn't be done. They were flexible on the day of our wedding and switched the ceremony inside due to weather without any issues at all. Excellent customer service and our guests raved about the venue (particularly the food)!! I can't thank the staff enough for making our day so special!

  • To say everything was perfect may sound like an exaggeration, but, everything, in fact, was perfect. Kevin went out of his way to make sure the day ran smoothly and every single staff person was a delight to work with. The room helped create an ideal environment for the ceremony. The food was great and the party was a blast! A wedding day can be hectic, for sure, as well as amazingly wonderful. Everyone and everything at the Desmond helped create a spectacular celebration for our daughter.
