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 door, having been welcomed by the doorman at the door of your taxi, there is a determined effort to remember your name. They don't always succeed but not through want of trying. You are shown to your room and the various features are pointed out, our room was not quite ready (it was only noon!) and so we were taken to the lounge and given complimentary tea and then given updates on when the room would be available. The lounge and bar are busy at most times of the day but given the high staff to customer ratio, there is rarely a wait for service. Drinks and snacks are served at a reasonable price for a five red star hotel in London. Rooms are furnished to a very high standard and even the smallest have all the facilities one would need for a short break. Breakfast is served in the dining room and is a thoroughly enjoyable experience. A breakfast that sets you up for the day whether that be business or pleasure. Returning 'home' to The Goring after a hard day in London is particularly satisfying and the cares of the day or sore feet can quickly be forgotten over a drink and a few olives in the bar. While in london we dined at another five star hotel nearby and while the dining experience was very good we were reminded of how soulless some hotels can be. Not so The Goring and long may that continue!
