This was my second visit to The Goring and it's still the reigning champion of service of London hotels. I don't know how the staff are trained - an upscale bootcamp? Some posh learning center where they conduct intense memorization drills? Because the staff at The Goring will learn your name on day one of your stay, and remember it...

What distinguishes The Goring from other luxury hotels is their pleasant and attentive staff. Staying there is like being in a private club--complete with a garden terrace overlooking a croquet court. Thanks to Concierge(s) John and Joseph expertly accommodating our every request, my husband's and my week in a beautifully appointed, one-bedroom suite surpassed all previous stays in five-star, London...

We can't say enough about this beautiful hotel whose most delightful feature is a private garden with outdoor terrace. The service was first rate, both professional and friendly (especially from Hannah at the front desk and concierges Patrick and John), and the restaurant was excellent.

Stayed here for an anniversary and found everything to be top class.

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.
