Exquisite service! Naturally, sky is the limit, but Goring hotel and its staff is as close to perfection as it is humanly possible! For this level of service prices are completely adequate. Restaurant deserves its own personal thank you!

If you can afford it, stay here! We splurged and are so glad we did! This was among my top 5 (maybe very top) hotel stays. Not since the Ritz Carlton in SFO have I been made to feel so welcome and valued. We were consistently addressed by name by EVERY hotel employee we encountered. The service was stellar (housekeeping,... More

Had been on our list to visit for a while and while there was nothing wrong overall, it was just a little disappointing. The room was well decorated but very small. There was just room to move around the bed and it all felt rather cramped. Same with the bathroom. We were lucky that it was a nice day so... More

Incredible historic hotel with amazing service. The staff couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. The building is beautiful. The garden is gorgeous - make sure you enjoy a cocktail from the small bar located in the garden. Very pricey, but if you want to pamper yourself for a night - go for it!

The Goring is immaculate, charming, and a total delight! The rooms are lovely and very comfortable and the restaurant was fabulous. There is also a plus in that they have a wonderful garden space which feels like your own private sanctuary right in the middle of busy London. But the most outstanding feature of the Goring is the staff. Each... More

We spent four nights in a splendid garden room and it was a beautiful sanctuary in very hot London weather. We requested and were allocated a balcony which really made our stay.

The Goring truly made our experience in London what it was. The room's are comfortable, and perfectly charming. The hotel's restaurant, bar, and outdoor courtyard are top-knotch.

My partner and I spent a few nights at this luxury hotel which was the most recommended by our travel agent. The accomodation is beautiful and I loved the classic decor inside the room. The bathroom is the best we had in England. I must also thank the staff who made our stay perfect with their impeccable service. Highly recommend.

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.
