Throughout our years of travel, my family and I have enjoyed more than our share of fine hotels. Many fell short of the expectation one attaches to "star ratings." Without a doubt, The Goring stands apart from every other hotel by virtue of its absolute, and seemingly effortless, elegance.
The authentic kindness of the staff coupled with their gracious expertise only contributed to the beautiful surroundings. We will all hold that stay at the Goring as the new standard of excellence for every other hotel to match.
The highlight of the stay was, of course, the afternoon tea. We had enjoyed tea at Fortnum & Mason, but the tea at the Goring outshone even that afternoon. The deep, comfortable couches coupled with the rich, warm colors were a perfect complement to the luscious tea and scones. Beautifully presented and as delicious as anything we have ever enjoyed, tea at the Goring made for quite a wonderful afternoon.
Superlatives aside, words will fall short of providing a true picture of this delightful hotel. You simply cannot ask for more from an establishment or their staff. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to another very soon.
