This century-old, family-owned hotel exudes traditional elegance and impeccable English style in central London.
Otto Goring built this impressive manor-style hotel back in 1910 (a trendsetter of its time with en-suite bathrooms and central heating in every room), and the property has stayed within the family ever since. Now into its fourth generation of management, The Goring claims to be the last family-run luxury hotel of its kind in London. A top-to-toe renovation highlights the contributions of four major English interior designers: Nina Campbell (suites), Tim Gosling (suites and The Lounge and Bar), David Linley (The Dining Room) and Russell Sage (The Royal Suite, suites, guest rooms and the Front Hall). The hotel reopened in March 2015 just in time to mark its 105th anniversary. The upscale Belgravia setting provides proximity to many of London’s most popular landmarks including Mayfair, Knightsbridge and Buckingham Palace, presenting a well-sited home base for visitors intent on exploring the city’s intriguing shops and theaters. Exemplary personal service is the rule here, not the exception; and this “baby grand” hotel is full of thoughtful touches and detailing such as hand-woven Gainsborough silk wall adornments, the gorgeous private Goring Gardens and afternoon tea served in the Lounge Bar. Guest accommodations take in 69 “Delightful,” “Deluxe,” and “Splendid” rooms and suites, all dressed in British finery complemented by modern amenities including free Wi-Fi access, marble bathrooms and Italian linens.
