I took some family to the Goring recently for afternoon tea,which was very disappointing. The sandwiches had very little filling, the beef & horseradish had no horseradish & my beef was stringy. The tea which I had (English breakfast) was so weak you couldn't taste it. The cream for the scones did not taste or look like Devon clotted cream....

Went for lunch this week, the menu was lovely, however the food did not come up to scratch. The starter of risotto was excellent, but the main - salt marsh lamb whilst cooked correctly, the vegetables were stone cold! We sent it back and waited and waited, to be fair they offered us a complimentary glass of champagne. When it...

We attended the Gorling yesterday. The staff were incredibly friendly and had a very good sense of humour. From the doorman who opened our door (and managed to pick up my spare tights that fell out the car) to the young gentleman who served us non stop bread (as we had had a long morning and were very hungry) in...

Our family has been visiting The Goring for over 20 years. It is an exceptional hotel with first class 5 star service, rooms,staff,and atmosphere. Perfect location and is just a lovely stay, you are very welcomed with family and is a home away from home with that extra luxury. Just perfect.

Excellent experience at the Goring. We had heard so much about the service - and we were not disappointed. Friendly, fun check-in. No fuss experience in the comfortable bar before dinner. Fantastic dinner and breakfast in the Michelin one-star restaurant. Staff knew our names (even though we were only there for a quick one-night stay). We will be back.

Stayed at the Goring many times over the last 10 years or so and the quality of the rooms and convenience of the location make it a great base for business and family fun.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise 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.
