The hotel always provides such warmth and grace. The front of house staff are always so gracious, welcoming and obliging. I had the pleasure of staying in a splendid garden room which was just delightful and so elegant. The ski Bar was just magical and so warm and comfortable.

From the time you walk into the lobby you know you're in for a special treat. Independently owned boutique hotels can be a bit of a toss up because you never truly know if you will agree with management's ideas on how things should be run. This was not an issue at The Goring.

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.
