Absolute ideal location and amazing hospitalityPosted Aug 26, 2016
Pros: Charming hotel with wonderful character. All of the staff were superbly helpful and friendly. Breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner were all sumptuous!
Location: Short walk to Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park and numerous other sights/museums/shopping as well as Victoria Underground and Coach (bus) Stations.
This is the best hotel to stay at for seeing the sights in London and experiencing the best hospitality and food you can imagine. You are in walking distance of many signature attractions including Buckingham Palace, which is practically on your doorstep. Other sights are easily accessible by the Tube via Victoria Station just a block away or the Victoria Coach Station (bus). Wonderfully charming hotel with plenty of character, the staff are fabulous and the concierge was superbly helpful at getting us tickets. The Afternoon Tea is a must and the Beef Wellington was the absolute best dish we have ever had! We will only ever stay at The Goring whenever we return to London.

Fantastic HotelPosted Jul 28, 2016
Pros: The hotel is charming and the staff couldn't be nice, more welcoming or helpful. The location is also fantastic.
Location: GREAT location near Buckingham palace and easy walks to Big Ben, London Eye & Westminster Abbey
Overall a fantastic experience and would absolutely stay there again. Staff bend over backwards to help you and are very so very friendly. The hotel is beautiful and the location fabulous,right around the corner from Buckingham palace. We were at the end of over two weeks of travel when were arrived and it was a fantastic place to feel pampered and well cared for for our travel weary group. Only minor negatives were a small problem with the ac in my room didn't work well but was repaired and a negative experience in their starred restaurant for my birthday dinner. Groups over 8 ( there were 9 of us- 4 kids) get a limited menu with didn't include many of the delicious things we watched being served around us such as the wellingtons the table of 8 next to us ordered. Would have been nice to have know that when we reserved it that the lobster omelet from their pub menu would have been one of 3 dinner selections. To be fair they sent is a $25 bottle of champagne at the end of the meal when I said something but it was a bummer to have one chance to dine there and not get a true experience of it.

5* Luxury in LondonPosted Jul 27, 2016
The Goring is the best of the 5" London Hotels for anyone wanting a truly personal, old fashioned, experience in a low key atmosphere. From doorman to reception, concierge to bar staff, a very professional crew has been assembled, one assumes over many years. There is a Michelin star restaurant, but the temptation to dine casually in the oasis of their garden is overwhelming. The superb wine list is accessible there on request! I will return, again & again,

Hotel with personalityPosted Jul 16, 2016
The staff called me by name from the moment I stepped out of the taxi and for four days thereafter. Genuinely concerned with their guests comfort and well being. None finer!

PERSONALITY PLUSPosted Jul 16, 2016
The personality of this hotel surpasses that of ANY hotel I have visited ANYWHERE; and I have already 125000 miles this year through June. I will never stay at any hotel OTHER THAN The Goring while traveling in London.

Relaxing hotel with gardenPosted Jul 15, 2016
Always enjoy the personal attention and comfort of this top class homely hotel with a proper lounge Only snag don't get a front facing room if you are easily disturbed and can avoid it as it can be very noisy on the street during night especially Tuesday night for bins emptying. I need window open as air con blows on head and I am a light sleeper so no sleep was had. Also shower of interconnected room was noisy and disturned me v early. Otherwise well located for Victoria and walking to Buckingham P and St James park and Piccadilly through Green Park.
