Really lovely place, not only the rooms, but the staff, the tea room, the bar, the restaurant....everything is right and luxurious here. I couldn't recommend it more highly. We intended to move on to other places, but this hotel was so wonderful, we decided to stay put and use this as our base of operations. The concierge staff was amazing,...

Extremely pleasant afternoon tea. Very fresh sandwiches, plenty of them. Delicious scones and expertly served. Some might think expensive but ideal for a special occasion. We had the rose champagne option which was delicious. Would throughly recommend

We had a delightful afternoon tea, the food, the staff and the service were all excellent. The sandwiches were moist and flavourful, the cakes were a piece of art and melted in the mouth and the scones fresh and light.. When it was time to leave the cakes we had not managed to eat were boxed so we could take...

Service really perfection. Atmosphere excellent. Singles adequate, ample wardrobe space, excellent bathroom, perfect room temperature, windows can be opened. Food good. Strong and continuous wi fi. Within 10 minutes of arriving in the Hotel you are addressed by your name. No breakfast buffet which means that if you are on a business trip and have an early start can be...

Our family just returned from a wonderful 4 day stay at The Goring and we can't rave enough about the service and amenities we were offered. We booked 2 interconnecting rooms and the set up was perfect for our family. From the moment we arrived, when we were given an early check in, to our last day at the hotel...

My wife and I have both stayed in some wonderful hotels in our lives. The service we experienced at The Goring is head and shoulders above any other hotel we've experienced.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
