I pride myself in having stayed in some of the best hotels in the world. I must say, I was overwhelmed by the level of service I received at The Goring. This was clearly the best hotel experience of my life, and I can speak with a history of great stays at The Penninsula, Hong Kong, and Beijing, Mandarin Oriental,... More

Highly recommend afternoon tea at The Goring. Staff attentive and friendly. Lovely surroundings and the cakes and tea were excellent. Recommend for a special occasion. A taste of old fashioned England.

My husband and I recently stayed for three night at the Goring and we were treated very specially. The hotel is an oasis of luxury tucked behind Buckingham Palace , on the Saturday morning I could hear the canons being fired. First class restaurant and also very good food in the bar too. The only disappointment was that the hotel... More

That is the little charming hotel, that Kate Middelton stayed before she married Prince william. So when I had a medical conference in London this summer, my wife opted to try it. The location is nice - not far away from the palace (I guess, that is why it was chosen for the royal wedding). The dinning areas inside and... More

I only came here for a business lunch and coffee so can't comment on the rooms or the restaurant but during my three hour stay I did notice just how well the regular guests were treated..there really seemed to be a genuine personal touch. Not that we were treated badly in any way but the regulars certainly got plenty of... More

The Goring is a perfect place for a quintessential British experience. The hotel itself is beautiful. But the service is what sets this hotel apart from any I've ever visited. From the front desk, to the concierge, to (especially) the doormen, everyone treated us like family. Everything about The Goring is first class. I can't wait to return.

The hotel was lovely. The staff was friendly - but not able to resolve issues. The location is excellent. The internet was not acceptable. Called to have it addressed. Never fixed. Not acceptable. Billing issue. Only a couple of hundred dollars but they made a bunch of excuses regarding their emails (admitted unclear) and did not even review documents where... More

My family and I often find ourselves travelling from the north of England and crossing London from Euston to Victoria or Paddington to meet trains for Gatwick or Heathrow. Our preferred place to stop for a meal is The Goring. Anyone who knows The Goring will understand why - stepping through the doors is like being wrapped in a comfortable... More

My husband & I recently stayed in The Goring Hotel in London to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. It was the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff were so friendly and helpful and our room was absolutely beautiful. The service was excellent. When we arrived, they gave us a complementary bottle of champagne.
