Lovely night, super hospitality!

Posted Aug 3, 2017
Pros: The service was amazing. And tea is lovely.
Cons: The bar menu/food.
Location: Close to Victoria station, great for the Gatwick express which we used in the morning. Buckingham palace is also round the corner for sight seeing.
We stayed for a single night after our wedding and had a fantastic experience. The staff were amazing, service was actually exceptional. My only qualm was a beef sandwich in the bar, the beef was very tough. I was about to raise it with the waitress and took it to the bar but before I got there I almost walked into the waitress bringing a surprise cake and champagne to celebrate our wedding night! 😝😂 The cake was delicious. Thanks for the great memory!

Dear Matthew, Thank you very much for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. We are delighted to hear that you chose to spend your wedding night at The Goring and we hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back from time to time, to celebrate many more anniversaries to come. I am sorry that you experienced issues with the food in The Lounge and that we were unable to rectify this there and then. I will pass on your feedback to my colleagues in the bar in order that we can look into this. I hope it did not take away from the enjoyment of your visit but I am delighted to hear that you were pleased with the surprise we arranged to mark the special occasion. We look forward to welcoming you and your spouse back to The Goring very soon.

Perfect hotel in every single way

Posted Jul 24, 2017
Pros: We loved the decor, the staff, the comfort of the bed, the attention to detail and care.
Cons: We would not want to change anything.
Location: The Goring is quite close to Victoria Station and Buckingham Palace. In the summer tours are allowed at the Palace. There are also nearby pubs.
The Goring is quite beautiful, the staff is very attentive, the accommodations are cozy and comfortable, the food is terrific. I will never stay anywhere else. Patrick at Conceirge arranged three days of outings and my hosts were prompt, kind, gracious and informative. We can't wait to stay at The Goring again.

Best hotel experience in London so far

Posted Jul 14, 2017
Pros: Pretty much everything.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Excellent location. Quiet but close to the action.
Because of freaky-weird deals and points (or a variety of both), I've been able to stay at a hand-full of 5 star London hotels over the years. The Goring is, by far, the best of that bunch. It is what you would expect it to be...luxurious, elegant. But it is also personable and very intimate. It's kind of like a cross between a luxury hotel and a quaint bed and breakfast. By each of the doormen and most of the front desk staff, I was referred to by name. My room (45 on the second floor), though small, was plush and very well-appointed. The down comforter was so full that I had to mash it down to see the TV. I went out for dinner and came back not only to my room turned down, but several items I had tossed on the bed hung up and arranged more neatly than I've ever been able to do. All-in-all, when I accrue enough points again, I'll be back!

This was a wonderful hotel-

Posted Jun 27, 2017
Pros: Location-staff-decoration all superb.
Cons: I had some difficulty with the air conditioning. While the duvet was comfortable, I would have liked the ability to have a lighter blanket.
Location: Easy access to the Underground. Buckingham Palace nice area to walk around.
Every staff member was fabulous. My husband and I felt as though we were old friends to each and every staff member. The room was well appointed.

This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. The customer service was out of this world. If we go back to London will would absolutely stay here again.
