First time for afternoon tea at The Goring and boy was it worth the visit. Me and my wife were treated like royalty; the service is impeccable. The lounge itself is very classy and relaxing, the staff very helpful, polite and knowledgeable. The food was scrumptious; dainty finger sandwiches, melt in your mouth scones and delightful pastries.

Lucky enough to say this is the second time I have stayed at the Goring. As always the first impression counts, which starts with the men on the door, who as always were spot on with their service. The room was great, a tad compact, but that's the only fault with this hotel. When I think of a hotel in... More

Dear TrickyLadKirk, Many thanks for taking the time to let us know just how your latest stay with us at The Goring has been for you and your family. As the last Grand Edwardian Hotel to be built, we were the first luxury London hotel to have an en-suite bathroom for every bedroom that we had created but that did... More

We stayed at The Goring for three nights in early November. The location was superb and easy to access the city. Our room was a little small (delightful queen) and if we were to return, we would stay in a larger room. The service was top notch, yet unobtrusive. They were even able to snag hard to get dinner reservations... More

I stayed here on a Saturday Night and ate in the restaurant. What a great place. The secret was the staff who were all brilliant, so helpful and polite. The food was fantastic and I upgraded to a special room. Quaint old English, a reasonable size but needs a bit of modernising. The bathroom was lovely but it's looking a... More

We went to the Goring for a short mid week stay and have to say it has to be one of the most enjoyable stays we have ever had.

We had an awesome time at The Goring during a short break Sep 2014. Although it is not always easy to satisfy the needs of children, our 7 year old son had a great time. The hotel is close to the Underground train system and Buckingham Palace around the corner. Thank you

I absolutely loved my stay at the Goring, and we only wished we had more than one night to stay there. The staff were so friendly and our room was gorgeous, with an unbelievable bathroom.

Unassuming, charming, elegant hotel near Victoria Station and Buckingham Palace. Smallish but very comfortable room, great room service, nice bathroom and toiletries and professional, attentive staff. It felt like a wealthy, older relative's home rather than a hotel. That's very high praise from a jet-lagged business traveler!
