we booked The Goring based on the reviews on this website and were not disapponted. From the moment we walked up the front steps and were greeted with a huge smile and a very welcoming 'hello' from the doorman, every member of staff we encounterd were an absolute credit to the hotel. It is very upmarket but at no time did you feel intimidated by the splendour and grandness. We were in Room 90 which was on the 4th floor and it was a Kingsize facing the front of the hotel and it was beautiful and very quiet.The room was spotlessly clean. We had Dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was fantastic, the service was very efficient and friendly but not 'in your face' but when a glass was empty it was filled straight away and when a plate was finished it was removed as if by magic......If I was to make one critisism it would be that there are no Tea/coffee making facilities in the room and even though you can order Tea and it was brought straight away along with a lovely selection of biscuits, I, like I think many people want to wake up in the morning and have a Tea there & then and not wait for room service and I think fo a 5* Hotel this should be addressed. Also I found the bed very comfortable but the pillows VERY THIN. For this type of hotel lovely plump pillows should surely be standard. That said it was a truley wonderful experience which I would recommend to everyone and am looking forward to returning.....
