Just perfect! Stayed there with friends and we all thought the hotel was amazing. Knowing london quite well, this is one of the best
"English" hotels in the city. Perfect service as it should be!!!!

Reviewed June 5, 2007

Our family of four including an eleven year old and 15 year old thoroughly enjoyed our four night stay.

We had two rooms in the Deluxe Garden View category. Each room was beautiful, but not particularly large. They each had space for a couple of chairs or a sofa. The room was spacious by European standards. The furnishings were up to date. Internet access was via high speed cable and was very expensive.

The public rooms were quite nice for tea and snacks. The included breakfast was excellent. You must get this included as it is extremely expensive, but one of the best I have experienced in Europe. I calculated the included breakfast saved the family $800 US over the four night stay.

My wife and I enjoyed the bar for a drink each evening with excellent ambience.

More than anything, the staff is one of the best I have ever experienced. Housekeeping was spectacular, but you NEVER saw them.

The location is ideal.

The Goring made our visit to London perfect!
