A royal London retreat

7 Suites

Still run by the family who built it, The Goring offers the height of luxury with a distinctly intimate feel. Opened in 1910, the intimate hotel has just 69 rooms and suites, yet each room is individually designed to offer the ultimate blend of elegance and comfort. The hotel has hosted more than one member of Britain’s Royal Family in the past 100 years; not surprisingly, the signature four-room Royal Suite is arguably the most glamorous accommodation option in England. Despite its compact nature, The Goring offers an impressive range of features, from an award-winning restaurant to deluxe event facilities. Its Belgravia location — mere moments from Buckingham Palace and St. James’s Park, and a short walk from Westminster — means guests can enjoy world-famous attractions on their doorstep. And for a regal recommendation, in 2013 the hotel received a Royal Warrant of appointment to the Queen for Hospitality Services as the hotel hosted foreign royals during coronation ceremonies and the Duchess of Cambridge before her wedding in 2011. The Goring may be small, but there’s far more to it than meets the eye.
