After reading about The Goring Hotel I decided that I wanted to stay there with my husband on our recent trip, and it was a once in a lifetime experience. The hotel itself is 105 years old, has hand painted walls, gorgeous furniture and lighting everywhere, beautiful rooms, a courtyard garden, and a five star restaurant that lives up to...

Dear Robin P, Thank you for writing such an enchanting review about your recent stay with us at The Goring. The hotel, and its enchanting gardens have been in the same family for the 105 years too - with Mr Jeremy Goring now at the helm.

We came to this hotel, already taking in the London scene, and this hotel was just another awesome piece of my London trip, we walked in and I felt like royalty as we walked in and were already treated very kindly by the staff. The hotel itself is a short walk away from many of the cool monuments, including Buckingham...

Visited for a Saturday light lunch in the beautiful croquet lawn garden. Everything about the place oozes class. No wonder royalty stay here. The food and wine were superb, as was the service. You feel a world away from the busy London streets. I was not resident, so I can't comment on the rooms.

Stayed here on 21/6 for one night. We took the standard queen bed room (Delightful). The room was small, but well planned, so we felt at ease moving around, with enough space for all our luggage. Hotel lobby area and room were very nice (but lacks the opulence of The Savoy), with gorgeous marble-lined bathroom. If you're coming from Asia,...

We went here for a team lunch. There were around 40 of us and we had the downstairs area to ourselves. It was a beautiful day and we had a drinks reception on the lawn, it was beautiful. Lunch was delicious, great quality food and the service was excellent. I would definitely recommend and would go back in a heartbeat.

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.
