I had the Privelige of staying at the Goring for a family event.
The magic started even before entering the lobby with a warm smiling welcome and assistance from the Doorman.

Everything about this hotel says quality and it really is a real home from home.

Every member of staff was smart attentive and extremely helpful.

The rooms and public areas absolutely spotless, the bed was luxurious.

Dinner and breakfast was amazing and the dining room exquisite.

A very big thank you to the entire Goring team.

Looking forward to my next stay.

Dear happyholidaymaker55,

Thank you very much for your wonderful review of your recent stay at The Goring.

We were delighted that you chose The Goring for this special occasion and that you enjoyed your stay from the moment you were greeted on the doorstep. It is always lovely to read that a guest felt that every member of staff was on hand to look after them and that they couldn’t fault their time with us.

All of us at The Goring look forward to welcoming you back for your another night in one of our luxurious beds.

With warmest wishes,

Graham Copeman
General Manager

There can not be a better description of The Goring than their slogan - Your London Home.
It sums up a luxurious and well-run establishment that combines the best of a friendly club with a top-ranking 5-star hotel.

From their greeting to the (almost tearful) goodbye, we were treated like honoured guests.

Their breakfasts are beyond compare, their dinners a culinary delight and just to stay there is a wonderful and somewhat privileged experience of London.

Special service - the late delivery of our dry cleaning was overcome when the hotel arranged a courier to our next address, at their expense.

Good service born of long tradition seems to inspire everything in this hotel and their hospitality rings all the more sincerely as it is delivered by a staff universally happy in their work.

Truly a unique and very special place to stay.

With thanks for a memorable stay!

Arrived feeling dreadful, then after 9 hours sublime sleep awoke feeling 100% better. Hotel is a haven of peace and tranquility in the centre of west london. Not even the fact they ran out of sausages at breakfast spoilt my enjoyment.

Dear Anthony I,

Thank you very much for your wonderful review of your recent stay with us.

I am delighted that after a night in one of our rooms you were completely refreshed. We are so lucky being located on Beeston Place which is an oasis of calm just moments from the hustle and bustle of central London and many of the top sites.

We all look forward to welcoming you back to The Goring for another revitalising night and of course there will be plenty of sausages on the breakfast menu!

With warmest wishes,

Graham Copeman
General Manager

You feel relaxed and well cared for the moment you set foot in the lobby. During our whole stay we felt well looked after by the unobtrusive and remarkably helpful staff. The rooms although not that big are very comfortable and attractive. The bathrooms were bigger than expected. A wonderful dining area and bar are present off the lobby. This sort of luxury doesn't come cheap though. I have no doubt that from now on The Goring will be my london Hotel

Seven members of family met for a pre-booked special lunch. From the moment we walked through the door we were met with helpful and friendly staff. We were guided to a table at the bar for pre lunch drinks. One minor error in the order immediately resulted in a complimentary drink. The food was excellent and it was a pleasure to be served by well trained and attentive staff.
The older members of the family agreed that the experience and service was the best they had received for a long time and was reminiscent of the service one used to receive in many top establishments. We did not stay overnight but have no doubt that it would have been a good experience.
