We only had the opportunity for a one night stay, as we were visiting a show in London and didn't fancy the long schlep home after. We both wished we had stayed longer — superb room, brilliant bed, excellent service and great location. Will return here as it is a beautiful hotel. Also wanted to try the room service food... More

I visited this hotel for a special occasion. I came with high expectations and it did not disappoint. It is at the top end of the five star market, and from the moment you step inside you know you are somewhere special. The rooms are elegant and quiet, no trouble sleeping as little traffic passes outside. Staff are efficient and... More

Stayed for a few nights. The level of service at the hotel is simply unmatched. I was surprised how everyone remembers one's name, and how all the hotel employees are extremely friendly and interested in striking up a conversation. The quality of the rooms and the furnishings are superb. My only suggestion for improvement is with regards to noise. My... More

The Goring doesn't really need another stellar review, but here it is. Simply the best. From the moment we turned the corner onto Beeston Place (at the crack of dawn), we were greeted warmly by Peter at the front door (a 51-year fixture with good reason). He charmingly handed us off to Hannah and Oscar at the front desk who... More

This is my favorite hotel experience anyplace. A small hotel in a great London location where the staff are superb in caring for your needs. If you want a luxury splurge, this is the place. Beautiful gardens and lovely lounge and bar. The restaurant breakfast is the ultimate in both food and setting. Can't wait to return.

The level of service at the Goring is off the charts. From the minute you arrive to the minute you leave the hotel exudes charm. It's hard to pinpoint any one great attribute as it is basically brilliant across the board.

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.
