OVERVIEW

The hotel beloved by Royals that's just a clip and a clop on horseback from Buckingham Palace. Rooms boast Gainsborough Silks on the walls and plush fabrics at the windows, while the Dining Room has held a Michelin star since 2016. Afternoon teas in the extensive gardens are enormously popular.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Buckingham Palace is less than a ten-minute walk away, as is Westminster Abbey and the river Thames. The interiors shops that line Pimlico Road are just a five-minute walk away, as are the bars, restaurants and boutiques of Ebury Street and Eccleston Yards.

By car: the hotel is 4 hours from Manchester, and less than 2.5 hours from Bristol. Parking costs £60 per day.

By train: Victoria tube and rail station is three minutes' walk to the hotel. Book trains to London.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The building was designed by the fashionable Edwardian architect, John Evelyn Trollope, a subdued and elegant example of Edwardian Baroque. The Goring was the first hotel in the world to offer central heating - and a bathroom for every bedroom. A recent refurbishment by interior designer Russel Sage sees playful hand-painted wallpaper in the Front Hall and gilt botanical prints over the fireplace.

THE FACILITIES

Quirky old-fashioned English service from immaculately dressed staff. Many members of staff have been with the hotel for years, but even if you are a first-timer you will be greeted like an old friend. Facilities include a fitness room with a personal trainer, and in the summer, croquet can be played on the lawn.
