The Goring: A Delightful Treat
Three years ago my wife and I stayed at the wonderful Goring Hotel with our 6-year old granddaughter. What a delightful treat it was for all of us. Peter (the doorman) treated our granddaughter as if she were his own and Ernest (at the concierge desk) was never too busy to answer her questions. She and Lord Harley Shawcross had a wonderful conversation one evening in the lounge, not long before he died. A photo of the two of them that evening is in her scrap book. In August 2004 we will return to the Goring with two more grandchildren.
We just returned from a delightful stay at The Goring. We have been to London several times and stayed at lovely hotels, but this is by far the best experience we have had. The hotel is the ultimate British hotel...incredible service without being stuffy or pretentious. The location is very convenient...two blocks from the Victoria tube station. The rooms and baths are large and luxurious. The staff goes over and above to make sure your stay is perfect. We will definitely return to The Goring on our next visit to London.
The Goring is Special!
My husband and I have stayed at The Goring during our last two trips to Britain, in 2002, and again in 2003. We plan to stay again in 2004. The service is outstanding - we are always made to feel as if we are the only people in the hotel. The owner, George Goring, has instilled a level of quality and service that we did find at The Browns (another 5-star hotel in London), or anywhere else. The rooms are good sized, with beautiful bathrooms, and impeccably clean. The restaurant is fabulous. The Goring is a special, and it makes you feel special. I saw someone who gave it a bad rating on this site, and I can't help but think they stayed at a different hotel and have the name wrong. Every other rater gave 5-stars. The Goring is a special, special place!
The ONLY Place to stay in London
Stayed at the Goring more times than I can count. I've tried other places, but I always come "home".
Outstanding location (Be there on the Queen's birthday for the Trooping of the Colour), nice clean and big rooms, a hall porter for whom nothing is unusual, and the best welcome in all of the UK.
Not much in the way a flash, but overflowing in style.
No, no,no,don't go.
last spring, we had the misfortune of spending one night at the goring.
we booked a suite. the furniture was befitting a munchkin. the toilet was not in the bathroom but across the tiny living room in a tiny room all its own. we left as soon as we could and moved over to the beaufort gardens apartments. it was less money,10 times nicer and a few blocks from harrod's. for the same money you can find much better accomodation and in a nicer part of town.
I have stayed at The Goring many, many times since 1990. You can spend more (but not much) but you will never find a classier small friendly hotel in all of London.
Everything about The Goring is perfect. The service is incredible. I usually fly out of Gatwick, and they trolley my luggage to Victoria Station (about two blocks) for my connection to the Gatwick "check-in-here" train.
The Goring is a quiet, refined, most-English-hotel-immaginable. The staff and location are superb. Returning to the Goring is as anticipated as the city itself.
This really is a "classic" they do not need to change anything
I have stayed at the Goring regularly for almost a decade. Not cheap but I have stayed at more expensive hotels in London that are less warm and friendly. It is consistent, clean, friendly and with good British food. This really is a "classic" they do not need to change anything. I never stay anywhere else in London.
Tad expensive but the rooms, staff and food were all excellent -as for Mr Gorings cocktail evenings every Saturday -well an experience like no other hotel we've stayed at.
Spectacular & Classic London Hotel
If you want to stay in one of the finest Hotels in London and experience the charm and culture of the "Best of Britain" there is no better place to start than this fabulous Family owned and Operated Hotel (patronized for centuries by the Royal family ) a "stones throw" from Buckingham Palace.

Another big day in London today, we went to St Paul's Cathedral, the Globe Theatre and most exciting of all the Hummingbird Cafe!!!!! Oh and 'Once' starring Ronan Keating. So first to StPaul's - I climbed as high as you can go through some very narrow and windy spiral staircases and was the first person of the day to reach the golden gallery. The views were amazing right across London and it was so interesting to see the architecture of the ...
... ship surrounded by a glass and steel structure, which obscured the fine lines of the hull and contained the normal trashy gift shops with trinkets made in China. The ship itself was painted in a historically inaccurate colour scheme with far too much painted on gold-leaf, making it look like a maritime ”rhinestone cowboy”. With the knowledge that the ship was seriously damaged by fire recently and no longer original Greg couldn’t bring himself to spend the ...
I have a difficult relationship with sleep. I yearn for it, but only do it at night, and then so lightly. The only exception being if I have sex in the afternoon (deep sleep) or if I drink whiskey. I hate sleeping with my husband. He talks all the time, usually about the law or some text book he's reading and he sleeps so easily. Also I just hate sharing my bed unless I want to shag. So I made myself a little nest upstairs on the top floor. Husband moved in. ...
... long. There is definitely some cool stuff in there, but I'm definitely more of a Natural History type of girl- show me the fossils! So I'll check the Natural History Museum out soon hopefully (and I get to work there on Wednesday).
Then I wandered more, and eventually got dinner at a vegan place called Ventra that my fav food blogger recommends. ...
