Exude classic British style.

Each of the 69 individually designed bedrooms and suites exude classic British style with the utmost tradition and charm. The suites provide something extra special, with Gainsborough silk-lined walls, separate sitting room and bedroom areas and an in-suite cocktail hour. The jewel in the crown is The Royal Suite – a two bedroom suite with exquisite hand-woven silks and bespoke furniture, as well as a number of royal artifacts and antiques to surprise and delight.

The rooms are over six floors and have views of either Goring Gardens or
Beeston Place. Each room at The Goring has been individually decorated by
renowned British designers, featuring selected wallpapers, crisp Italian linen and lovingly crafted bespoke furniture. Refined elegance blends with subtle, state-of-the-art technology, including complimentary WiFi, air conditioning, mood lighting and TV with digital on-demand entertainment. The marble bathrooms feature luxury Asprey amenities and the finest Egyptian towels and bathrobes.
Gym

Keep up with your training program.

With the latest Technogym equipment and a selection of free weights, The Goring's Fitness Room is the ideal place to keep up with your training program while in London. Continue with your cardiovascular or resistance training within the hotel, or step outside for a run in the surrounding Royal Parks. The Concierge can provide you with a selection of scenic running routes for a variety of distances.

For a little more motivation, speak to one of the team to arrange a personal training session. Or, for something more leisurely Croquet can be played on the lawn during warmer months.

  • Vibe
    This property is fit for royalty, yet unpretentious and supremely inviting.
  • Who's it for?
    This is absolutely a family-friendly property, especially if your kids are curious about learning the intricacies of British Royalty. Just a stone’s throw from Buckingham Palace and entrenched in history, use this as an opportunity to tap into the educational piece of your family’s trip.
  • Location
    Located in Belgravia, one of the most exclusive and elegant areas of central London, The Goring is perfectly placed for exploring the capital - shopping, sightseeing and theatre. With Buckingham Palace only a five minute walk from the hotel, The Goring is just a Royal wave from its famous neighbours - whilst Knightsbridge, Mayfair and Kensington are within easy reach.

Agent Tips

  • Known for its ties to the royal house, Duchess Kate chose to stay the night prior to the Royal Wedding.
  • The concierge team here has serious connections; have your travel advisor email them approximately one month prior to arrival to secure hard-to-get dining reservations.
  • If you're traveling with a snorer, or perhaps a partner who needs to wake up early/stay up late to work, book one of the Belgravia Suites. They essentially have two rooms with door separation, connected by a foyer. The 2nd floor Belgravia Suite is especially gorgeous with its deep teal paint color on the walls of its formal dining room.
