My boyfriend and I stayed at The Goring from Oct. 15-20th. When we arrived before noon our room was ready and they upgraded us to a room located on the garden side.
Checking in was very swift and easy and they made us feel welcomed from the very beginning..
The room (59) was well-appointed and very elegant. The bed was SO comfortable with fine linens and soft pillows. I loved the large bathtub and the shower was nice with good water pressure.
I liked the concierge staff at the hotel. They were all gracious and accommodating and all the staff including the doorman called us by name. The hotel was extremely efficient at providing customer satisfaction.
I celebrated my birthday while in London. I happened to mention that to the concierge and days later on my birthday they sent me a bottle of champagne with a hand-written card wishing me a Happy Birthday! I was touched by this gesture.
We had room service one night and the food was good and presented nicely. We ate breakfast twice in the dining room and it was good. Pricey though.
I like to have coffee first thing in the morning. I asked about coffee service and they sent a hospitality tray with instant coffee, assorted teas, and a hot water pot. It was so convenient to have that in the room so I didn't have to order room service.
In general, I highly recommend The Goring for a wonderful stay in London. Great location too..
I am a runner and they offer jogging guides. Runs were great in St.James and Hyde PArks
