My family have been visiting the Goring for many decades and I consider it one of the nicest hotels in London, up there with The Dorchester for service.
I eat at the hotel at least once a week and I suppose that in itself demonstrates that it must be doing something right. It has after all beeing doing it for over 100 years in fact, under the ownership of the same family.
The bar bussles ( and has an appealing choice of decent sandwiches etc, although they could perhaps change the hot food menu) and the restaurant consistantly produces decent British food in a pleasant environment.
Recent refurbishment of the Ground floor to to eveyone's taste but not offensive.
Rooms are a little tired and could do with a make-over, especially as the Savoy has recently reopened following their closure and transformation.
Never cheap but wouldn't want it to be either.
Nice enclosed garden in summer and close to Victoria Sation if you ever have the unfortunate mishap of having to use it. Convenient for Wesminster Cathedral and Buckingham Palace and 5 minutes walk from each.
