The Goring is located in the heart of London, just around the corner from Buckingham Palace and 3 min walk from Victoria station. With all the rush and noise of a megapolis the hotel stands on a very quiet street, which everyone passes by, so inside the room it's very calm. I had a wonderful stay there. With breakfasts a...

My husband booked The Goring Hotel for a long weekend and as soon as we arrived the staff were absolutely amazing. The décor is stunning and we relaxed in the bar before we went out for the evening. Its not often you go somewhere and receive such excellent customer service.

Stayed here for a weekend break and we absolutely loved it. Superb location, amazing facilities and first class staff. We had a beautiful room overlooking the garden (yes garden in central London!) with a small terrace, sadly the weather just not quite warm enough to enjoy it though we did sit out on the bar terrace as it had heaters!...

We had a delightful afternoon tea, the food, the staff and the service were all excellent.

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.
