Guest rooms at Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star The Goring vary based on type of room or suite. The guest room we stayed in was on the smaller side, but did offer a nice floor plan with an entryway hallway leading to the bathroom. The room featured a double bed, a desk with a stool, a single armchair, a bedside table and a spacious armoire. French doors with windows separated the entryway and the bathroom from the bedroom, and a mirrored wall created the illusion of additional space. The room’s windows looked out over a back street leading to a nearby park, which was an attractive view. Designed with a mix of grays, blues and creams, the various patterns throughout the room didn’t overwhelm the eye.
The Goring has 69 rooms and suites, ranging from its cozy queen bedrooms right up to its decadent Royal Suite, which occupies part of the top floor of the luxurious Belgravia hotel. Every room is filled with opulent fabrics and furnishings arranged in a classically contemporary style. Well-known interior designer Russell Sage sought out the best British artisans including Tim Gosling for bespoke furniture Nina Campbell for housewares and linens and Gainsborough silk to create The Goring’s stunning guest accommodations. Rooms are decorated in colors ranging from the deepest blue to palest cream; and boast specially designed, hand-made furnishings. The rooms are also populated with a variety of replica silks from early 20th century palaces, livery halls, stately homes and even cruise ships (including The Titanic), while also incorporating a range of contemporary comforts such as high-speed Wi-Fi. Some rooms overlook The Goring’s private gardens while others offer views of the lovely Victoria Square and Beeston Place. Room prices vary from around $645 to $13,500 per night.
