However, the staff were exellent in every way. Finally , I think that the hotel in general is very overated, and doubt I... More

Meeting friends in London for lunch and a good gossip- we settled on the restaurant at the Goring. They never falter in the quality of their service and the food experience was equally exquisite. Its not an endless menu choice, but wide enough to satisfy all tastes - and a food allergy in one of the party. We all thoroughly... More

My family and I were celebrating a most special occasion and we chose The Goring as a convenient location to Buckingham Palace. Our focus was on the palace and although it was special I have to say that for me, our stay at The Goring was the highlight of the whole event. From the moment we arrived we felt we... More

My partner and I had the pleasure of staying in the Goring early March this year with our respective Mothers. A most enjoyable experience. From the moment you arrive, the Goring set a standard quite above many hotels (and most in London) with the most friendly, yet professional style. Attentive yet discreet and subtle in their approach. Our adjoining rooms... More

Me and my mum stayed 1 night and had dinner and breakfast in the hotel. The staff are so lovely and approachable and nothing is too much trouble and make you feel welcome. It's a lovely treat and once in lifetime experience. Only thing is drinks are a tad expensive, but I realise that's London prices for you !

Mobile phones, ipads etc are forbidden in the tea room, which I think creates this very special atmosphere : a mix of old school England and relaxed countryside at the same time. Service was impeccable, prices were reasonable, and the view over the garden makes a difference in the very heart of London. Relaxing, quiet, a great place where to... More

The Goring is simply a fantastic event. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel special, in a typically under stated British way the Edwardian hotel has a 100 years of service fined tuned to ensure your stay is perfect. It's not cheap, but if you want mark a special occasion I can't think of any where else... More
