The Goring


Overview

Located on a quiet, leafy side street in central London’s elegant Belgravia neighborhood, The Goring is London’s most elegant hotel that embodies impeccable English luxury hospitality and personalized service. Opened in 1910 by Otto Goring, this beloved, red brick and ivy-covered Edwardian property has witnessed some of London’s most historic events and played host to renown political figures, serving Prime Ministers, glamorous models, reigning monarchs and many other members of the Royal Family. The Goring is the only hotel to have been granted a Royal Warrant for its hospitality services for Households of Her Majesty The Queen. This June, The Goring is preparing regal festivities in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee.

Through four generations of the Goring family, the finest personal service remains at its heart. The Goring's head Concierge, known as "Big John", is a superstar with guests and guides them to experience the best of London. With only 69 luxurious suites and rooms, The Goring is affectionately known as a “Baby Grand” where guests can enjoy its central location, intimate ambiance, and personalized attention. Quirky little details add a dash of warmth and humor to their stately setting, such as The Goring iconic wooden sheep, a favorite guest souvenir, spotted in their guest rooms and suites, a visit from Teddy, their loyal Shetland pony, and collection of black and white photos celebrating the property’s rich history.

The inside of the hotel is beautifully enhanced by The Goring Gardens – one of the largest private gardens in the capital. The Gardens provide guests with the perfect setting to enjoy the award-winning afternoon tea. Downstairs, the sleek, marble-floored lobby leads the way to The Dining Room, a renowned Michelin-starred restaurant celebrating the very best of British cuisine under the direction of Executive Chef Graham Squire, where guests dressed in their finest evening attire dine on traditional dishes like beef Wellington under the glow of sparkling Swarovski chandeliers. Other dining options include The Goring Cocktail Bar, a cozy, dimly lit lounge with a roaring fireplace that offers casual fare and a drinks menu featuring both classic and signature cocktails and utilizing many different herbs plucked right from the hotel’s own garden. Guests can also dine in The Veranda, a beautiful open-air pavilion with soaring glass windows that opens directly onto the stunning lawn and gardens. Just a stone’s throw from Buckingham Palace and Knightsbridge and Mayfair neighborhoods, The Goring is perfectly situated in a peaceful yet highly fashionable area perfect for shopping, theatre, dining, and more.
