Our fifth stay at The Goring Hotel proved to be as special as we have come to expect. Its location, behind Buckingham Palace is useful to the visitor and gives easy access to all parts of London. Perhaps more importantly though is the welcome, the service and the comfort of this refined slightly old world hotel. Once through the main... More

The Goring is a truly special hotel---yes, yes, it was the hotel the now Duchess of Cambridge stayed in the night before her wedding---but the second you are in the hotel you understand why that happened. The staff from the doormen, to the front desk, to the bar staff, to the restaurant staff, to housekeeping are fantastic. And they all... More

We stayed in the Goring for two nights in January. The hotel was fabulous in every way - decor, room, facilities, food were all fantastic. The staff were friendly and professional and couldn't do enough for us, without being at all pretentious.

Stunning venue for a special occasion. Very attentive and helpful staff. Food was delicious and extremely well-presented. What a way to spend an afternoon. Great ambience and not pretentious. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to be pampered whilst having a cup of tea (plus sandwiches, scones and cakes) and a glass of Bollinger. Marvellous!.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise a place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
