"Dining for a really special occasion"
I have been to the Goring a few times in the past and enjoyed a nice evening at the restaurant. For a special birthday for my wife and family I booked dinner on a recent Saturday evening. The service, ambience and quality of the food and wine was exceptional. The feedback from my guests was that it was a really special night. From our first arrival for pre-dinner drinks the staff could not have been more attentive in looking after us.
"A home from home. Top marks for The Goring"
The Goring is absolutely first rate! Having stayed at, or eaten at several top hotels in London including The Savoy, The Ritz, The Langham and The Dorchester we would rate The Goring better on every level. We are not wealthy and we were staying for the weekend as a treat for my wife's birthday but from the moment we arrived the staff were incredibly friendly, charming and helpful. The hotel is absolutely beautiful, the building is simply stunning but it is the staff that make you feel relaxed and comfortable. It is also very reasonably priced when compared to the competition mentioned above. Yes like all London hotels its expensive by our standards but you never feel like you are being ripped off. Lunch for four people for £73 in these surroundings is incredible value. Both lunch and breakfast were an absolute delight and we could not have felt better looked after, nor was there a single thing we could fault so 100/100 for The Goring who managed to make us feel at home in very salubrious surroundings. When we left we told them we would definitely be back and we will. It would definitely be our first choice of hotel in London. Richard and Laura Stebbing Whitstable.
"weekend break for anniversary celebrations"
This hotel was fantastic from beginning to end. I booked for a weekend away with my husband and children for my wedding anniversary, we were greeted promptly and our car taken to be parked, we were shown to our rooms where we were impressed with the little touches for our 4 and 7 year old, we booked afternoon tea for the Friday afternoon which had all been arranged prior to our visit, a special mention to Taylor who went out of his way to arrange cookie making for our daughters with the pastry chef of the kitchen. Having originally offered this service it was declined by the hotel due to the busy weekend they had, however once I mentioned this would upset them Taylor did his utmost to facilitate this and they loved it. After a wonderful breakfast my daughter age 14 and I went to have our hair cut and blow dry by a local salon, again this was all arranged by Aaron and John at the concierge extremely smoothly. On Saturday afternoon we went to see the Lion King, again all arranged by John the concierge. I am mindful of the fact that my children are not used to strangers and although booked a babysitter for the evening so my husband and I could enjoy a meal in the Goring restaurant. They arranged for a lady who was extremely good, I felt very comfortable with the only downside from the children's point of view is they were upset that she told them they had to go to bed and to sleep, of course they like to stay up... On the whole a very positive experience. The restaurant food was very good, but disappointed they forgot our carrots and we had almost finished our meals. on the whole though lovely food. After another very good breakfast on the Sunday we were then entertained by our youngest making cocktails again arranged by the hotel for the children, Based on the fact we had young children and there did not seem to be many there we felt very comfortable amongst staff and other guests. Would definitely recommend.
"the Goring Hotel, London - By Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen"
Located literally across the street from Buckingham Palace and Victoria station, The Goring is the only five star luxury hotel in London that is still owned and run by the family that built it over one hundred years ago, in 1910. Knowing this, it is easy to understand why the Goring was chosen by Kate Middleton to spend her final night as a “commoner” before marrying Prince William… Maybe you remember watching her leaving the hotel for Westminster Abbey on her D-day, as the two billion people who watched it live on TV. As soon as you get out of your car and walk up the marble stairs and beneath the hotel’s signature blue canopy, you feel like you are travelling back to an elegant and old-fashioned time in history – with all the modern luxuries and amenities at hand, of course. You could actually almost feel immersed into one of the historical events that took place here. I had the extreme privilege to stay at one of the three £ 1,750 Belgravia One-Bedroom suites. Part of the major restoration undertaken by Jeremy Goring to celebrate the hotel’s centenary in 2010, the Belgravia suites were unveiled in November 2011.
"Like stepping back into time"
Had an outstanding afternoon tea at the Goring, impeccable service and delicious food in the most charming location. It really oozes charm and atmosphere of years gone by, dress well and really enjoy the occasion.
