The Goring is a long-standing London establishment, just minutes away from Buckingham Palace. It really couldn’t be better placed – on the doorstep there’s high-flying areas of Knightsbridge and Sloane Street, the chaotic Theatreland and Piccadilly Circus, and the stretch of shops and art galleries along Bond Street and Jermyn Street. Even in the hotel’s immediate surrounds are some quality restaurants, bars, and shops. Meanwhile Hyde Park, Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament and Harrods are all within a mile of The Goring.
The Goring has been in operation and owned by four generations of the same family for nearly a century. Today the charming hotel stands as a bastion of quality and absolute individuality. Right from its roots, its success has been based upon what guests expect: luxurious comfort, good food and drink and attentive and personable service.
There are 71 rooms within the fully air-conditioned establishment and guests are greeted by a cavernous lobby with 24-hour reception and check-out service, a hotel safe, currency exchange facilities and a cloakroom. On-site facilities include lift access, a bar, a restaurant and conference facilities.
English opulence presides throughout and, while all the rooms are spacious, lavishly furnished, and sprinkled with subtle, considerate touches, they’re all unique. There’s high-speed internet access, individually regulated air-conditioning and heating, and twice daily housekeeping service. The en suite bathrooms come with a bathtub and a hairdryer, and in-room amenities include a direct dial telephone, Sky TV, a radio, an ironing set and a safe.
All guests can enjoy complimentary membership of a local health club with pool and gym, which is only five minutes' walk from the hotel. The concierge can also arrange golf, tennis, riding and jogging – almost any sporting activity guests can think of.
The dining room has been recently redesigned and The Goring's restaurant is one of the most famous hotel restaurants in London, offering superbly cooked British food, and it has become through the years a highlight of the London scene. It is here also that one can indulge in some of London’s finest afternoon tea sessions.
