    The Goring: A Delightful Treat

    from

    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.

    Wonderful Stay!

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    from

    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.

    Simply...the best

    from

    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.

    Wow!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Superb location

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    A Day With The Queen

    Today was a long day. We left the apartment at 5:30 am to catch the early train to London and didn't return home until midnight! We started our day in London with a traditional British breakfast at Regency Cafe. This was a far cry from petit dejeuner in Paris. Plates were complete with eggs, beans, tomatoes, bubble and squeak and toast! The …

    ... War Rooms. Cool stuff and remarkably well preserved. Fascinating look into his time as PM and the Blitz. We then finished up the royal area with a visit to the Royal Horse Guard and their 4pm inspection and museum. Amazed at the number of women veterans and really impressive museum and units. Section on IRA bombing and Waterloo very impressive. After dinner we did the Platform 9 and 3/4 and then back to pack for the ...

    Yesterday we saw St Paul's Cathedral which was an amazingly tall and cool church. Then we saw the Museum of London showing from when London was just a small town on the Thames. Then we saw an art gallery. In the evening we went to King's Cross Station and I got a few photos at Platform 9 3/4. ...

Chantelle thought it may just be the London one, but I would still look elsewhere when out of town. Then, on to the show. I hadn't seen the film, so apart from those songs the were on ...

    ... busy but we negotiated the way very easily. London Fashion Days are starting today in Oxford street so I can imagine it will only get busier. We had a quick dinner in a little cafe in Whitcomb street, then walked across to Trafalgar Square. Everything is soooooo big. There were many people around and dozens of London buses at any one ...
