Have stayed twice whilst on business trips recently, and been favourable impressed both times. The lower category rooms are not the largest, but are very comfortable and well equipped. Public rooms are very good, and the food and service in the dining room was exceptional .
Overall service levels are very high, with excellent staff/guest ratio, and staff genuinely aiming to please.
There is no gym on site, but there is complimentary access to a local fitness centre.
The bar/lounge have somewhat of a "club" atmosphere, and it's certainly very convivial, but may not be to everyone's taste; they prefer you not to use a mobile in the bar, or even a laptop, and whilst in many ways this is to be admired business travellers wanting to catch up on email may be disappointed.
But I thoroughly enjoyed it, and will return

Room Tip: Basic rooms quite small, and most without a separate walk-in shower. Al well equipped, but consider an upgrade if space is important to you

It is always lovely to see that a guest has been able to sample all that the hotel has on offer during their time with us. It is true our team all pride themselves on ensuring that each of our guests is well looked after and wants for nothing whilst they are with us and I truly enjoy seeing this being recognised.

We all look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel when you are next in London on business and hope that it is in the not too distant future.

Excellent Hotel.
Everything just works well. Reception is speedy and friendly, concierge desk is knowledgeable, the bar and lounge area are warm and welcoming. IT is an outstanding staff of professionals. They remember guests, and after a few visits you feel like you get a special treatment. Breakfast is a la carte, and the choice as well as quality are very good. They cater with no problem to food allergies, and any kind of special requests. It is just such a pleasure to come back to Goring.

The Goring Hotel is exceptional. The staff goes out of their way to make you feel at home.
The hotel is located in the Belgravia section of London, and is within walking distance of Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park and many major historical sites.

This is the hotel where Kate Middleton and her family spent the night before her marriage to Prince William.
Our room was lovely and had all modern updated conveniences, including a fabulous bathroom with a heated floor and towel rack.
The main dinning room serves some of the best food in London and the setting is lovely.
We can't recommend it enough

Excellent service and food, always a pleasure to relax in the bar with a drink and the Goring's club sandwich. No matter how busy the hotel, bar and restaurant the staff at the Goring always remain calm, efficient and polite. If you are in London with your wife/partner or on business the Goring gets it right first time every time!

Thank you very much for your wonderful review of your dinner at The Goring.

I was delighted to read your review of your time with us and thrilled that you found the whole experience to be faultless. A Goring Club Sandwich with a drink in our Lounge Bar is one of life’s simple pleasures in my opinion.
