From the moment the taxi arrived we were impressed with the service nothing was to much trouble. We dined in the restraunt both nights and the food was very good with a set choice menu £49 p.p.not to bad for a 5 star London hotel although breakfast was £30 p.p. If good service and fine food are your main criteria then this could be the hotel for you. However if you are looking for a hotel with all modern modcons then you may be dissapionted. The Goring has been a hotel for over a hundred years and could benefit from a few upgrades certainly when spending over £800 per night room only I do expect a fridge and tea and coffee facilities in the room. The plumbing leaves a little to be desired and the warm air heating takes time to work, as for the lighting well i still didnt know which button to press to put a light on iether the curtains opened or the TV burst in to life?. If I forgive these few things then I have to say it is a fine Hotel [just revel in its history].
