About Us

Impeccably English and perfectly individual, The Goring features 69 sumptuous rooms and suites, each uniquely decorated with the finest furnishings. As the last remaining family-owned luxury hotel in London, it’s renowned for its warm, intimate atmosphere and personalised service.

With an elegantly designed Michelin-starred Dining Room, a much acclaimed new restaurant, Siren, which serves exquisite seafood dishes, overlooking the beautiful Goring Garden, a world-renowned afternoon tea and an opulent yet fun bar offering an irresistible selection of the signature cocktails.

Located in Belgravia - one of the most exclusive and elegant areas in central London - it’s perfectly placed for the spectacular London sights. The iconic walls of Buckingham Palace border the district and nearby Knightsbridge, Mayfair and Sloane Street make for a fashionable stay

The hotel’s suites offer true indulgence. Guests can choose between Junior Suites and Belgravia One and Two-bedroom Suites. The jewel in the crown is The Royal Suite – an exceptional suite with two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. The glorious suite spans the length of the building and has a balcony overlooking The Goring Gardens.

Families love The Goring and can choose to stay in connecting rooms or a two-bedroom suite.

Best of the Best

Having been lovingly refurbished, The Goring has entered a new era. The top-to-toe designer renovation was completed with a ravishing new Front Hall, which is resplendent with exquisite hand painted wallpaper. Nestled in Belgravia, adjacent to Buckingham Palace, the impeccably English hotel's individually decorated suites and bedrooms offer supreme comfort. The Goring stands out from the crowd with its Royal Warrant (granted by The Queen herself), private garden and exceptional service, including a team of footmen. The Michelin-star Dining Room serves the best British food, and the hotel is home to London's favorite afternoon tea.

Advisor Tip

For dinner, walk to Caraffini in Sloane Square; the Italian restaurant is a local favorite, and the concierge can reserve your table. –Lucy Butler Los Angeles, California

Guest Rooms & Suites

Superior Room

Beautifully appointed and perfectly proportioned bedrooms where stylish and enchanting details are discovered at every turn. Be prepared for a super comfortable bed with crisp white Italian linen and after a long day of work or play, take an invigorating shower or a long bath in the marble bathroom before settling into a deep dreamy sleep.

Many of the Superior Rooms can also be connected, making them ideal for families.

  • Non-Smoking

Executive Room

Spacious and luxurious

Our generously-sized Executive Rooms are striking in design and offer guests space to relax and unwind. Supremely comfortable with a large marble bathroom, many with separate walk-in showers and carefully chosen British bath products by Asprey.

The luxurious surroundings are well matched with exquisite details such as fine Italian linens, hand-made furniture and the very latest in technology. All this and with our award winning service on hand means everything is in place for a memorable stay.

Deluxe Garden View

Silk-lined bedrooms overlooking The Goring Gardens

The flood of natural light from the windows that frame The Goring’s much admired garden is unique in London and our king bedded Deluxe Garden View Rooms offer uninterrupted views of its manicured grass lawn and borders of scented English flowers.

Each room is richly lined with Gainsborough silk, has spacious marble bathrooms and a number have balconies to enjoy a tranquil breakfast, a light lunch or cocktail.

A number of our Deluxe Garden View Rooms can be connected to a Junior Suite to give families enviably spacious accommodation.

Belgravia One Bedroom Suite

Sumptuously stylish suites

Prepare to make yourself at home. Internationally acclaimed British designer Russell Sage had six historic silks rewoven by The Gainsborough Silk Company for the walls of The Belgravia Suites, originally these silks were from the British Embassy in Paris, The Music Room at London’s Lancaster House and Bute House in Edinburgh, the official residence of the First Minister of Scotland.

The closer you look the more you will discover, each Belgravia Suite has an entrance hall leading to an elegant sitting room where you will find a handsome marble fireplace and light streaming in onto deep comfortable sofas.

As you would expect the well-proportioned bedrooms are exquisite with hand-made furniture in birds-eye maple, mahogany and walnut - all bespoke of course. The large marble bathrooms have separate walk-in showers and some have flat-screen TVs.

Suite guests are treated to all The Goring has to offer including service from the hotel’s magnificent scarlet coated footmen and an in-room cocktail service at cocktail o'clock each evening.

  • Non-Smoking

The Royal Suite

London’s most famous Royal Suite has opened at The Goring following almost eighteen months of planning and refurbishment. Commissioned to commemorate the Centenary of the hotel in 2010, top designers were asked to bring The Goring's unique style to life.

With the latest audiovisual equipment hidden throughout, the four room suite stretches across the whole length of the top floor and overlooks the private gardens. Spectacular Royal Gainsborough silks have been used in all parts of the Suite. The Drawing Room and Dining Room are in the palette of powder blues whilst the bedrooms are champagne pink and a sage green silk from a pattern first woven in 1910.

Each bedroom’s en suite bathroom consists of unmitigated luxury mixed with the latest technology. Large walk-in showers accompany equally large marble baths complete with built-in TV screens.

A new balcony has been created running right across the suite with magnificent panoramic views over the skyline of London. Floor to ceiling French windows in each of the rooms open up onto this magical space with its romantic views over The Goring’s gardens and the rooftops beyond.Our largest and most splendid suite truly is a unique combination of elegance and comfort, perfect for those seeking the truly Royal Goring Experience.

The Goring is a wonderful little oasis in the middle of bustling London. It has the largest private garden in all of London; the Tea was rated best in 2013 in London; close to Victoria Station. The service is unmatched, the food excellent as well.

My wife and I were very pleased with the Goring. It's location is outstanding. The beautiful courtyard is a quiet oasis from the bustle of Belgravia. The staff is very attentive and helpful. The restaurant is outstanding and represents a destination, by itself. The rooms are spacious and meticulously updated. Highly recommended without reservation.

We have now stayed at THE GORING three times, and we will definitely return on any trip to London. The hotel is intimate, elegant, personalized, charming, and warm. Every employee takes ownership; there are many long-time staff members who take enormous pride in their work. The Dining Room is particularly delightful. The hotel is located within walking distance to Victoria Station (trains and tube station), two major theatres - The Victoria Palace and the Apollo Victoria (now showing BILLY ELLIOTT and WICKED), Buckingham Palace, and the Mall. I cannot wait until we can return to our home away from home - THE GORING in London.

What can I say about a place with the highest standards and customer service. I did not think the continental breakfast was going to be enough, but it was perfect. The room was small, but quaint and very well done. The concierge was patient and extremely helpful. The doormen knew our names by the second day. The gym is a 1.5 mile to 2 mile run, but is nice. They even helped with a gym bag and water. It was so nice to know you had good friends in new places.

The Most Fantastic Hotel I Have Ever Stayed In

By: cj


Reviewed on: 06 Jun 2017

The Goring is Magical! The location- perfect right near Buckingham Palace. The food - divine. The breakfasts are very good & the bar food was delicious & served 24 hrs! The front desk- Amazing. Everyone of the front staff knew our name & eventually our room number. They went above and beyond to help us & make sure our stay was perfect. And it was. The Concierge was so friendly, helpful & knowledgeable (especially Patrick). The wait staff was very efficient & accommodated our requests. The Doorman - I am in love with Peter (he's been there 50 years) and he is now my Boyfriend. The Room- OMG! We had the "Most Splendid Garden" room that faced the second largest private garden in London other than Buckingham Palace & had our breakfasts on the balcony. If you can afford it- do it. It's magical & you are treated like royalty. Cocktails daily were put in our room, housekeeping was great. We will definitely return to London and stay tat the Goring & in the same room again !
