For a truly regal experience of London, the pedigree of The Goring is difficult to match. Located just steps from Buckingham Palace – perfect for walking out to observe the Changing of the Guard – the hotel holds a Royal Warrant and was selected by Princess Catherine of Wales as the venue to spend the night before her wedding. Despite these high connections, the feel at the hotel is one of understated luxury with genuinely warm and welcoming service. As London’s last family owned 5-star hotel, The Goring prides itself on delivering a truly personalised stay, and this loving attention to detail is evident from the moment you are welcomed across the threshold by the hotel’s iconic, red liveried footmen.
Families are welcomed with open arms at the hotel, which offers generous interconnecting rooms, special amenities for children and the irresistible dressing up box and bedtime story library. Unusually for a hotel in the heart of the city, The Goring offers an attractive walled garden – a hidden oasis which plays host to themed events during the summer months such as pop-up restaurants and visits from Teddy the Shetland Pony (an extended member of the Goring family). Dining is another undeniable highlight. Be sure to return from your London adventures in time for Afternoon Tea at least once during your stay – utterly indulgent and themed around the seasons. The hotel’s fine dining restaurant, The Dining Room, has proudly retained its Michelin star for many years, while at the Goring Cocktail Bar the resident mixologists blend creations with fresh herbs sourced from the hotel garden.
A collection of sumptuously furnished rooms and suites offer all creature comforts and the latest technology; upgrade to a suite for enhanced views, a separate living area and complimentary in-suite cocktail hour. For the ultimate Goring experience, treat yourself to a stay in a Belgravia or Royal Suite to enjoy dedicated service from scarlet and gold liveried footmen.
