The hotel at a glance
Luxurious and welcoming, the Goring is ideal for those who want a real taste of Edwardian England to talk about when they get home.
Kate Middleton famously graced the Goring’s sheets before being wedded and crowned princess in Westminster Abbey as the whole world watched, eyes glued to their television screens. We can’t guarantee that you will wake up to the same treatment, but the Goring, only minutes away from the Buckingham palace, is as royal an offering as it gets.
Under the ownership of the same family for 100 years the atmosphere here is decidedly traditional. From the bowler hat wearing doormen to the menu which would not look out of place in the pre war era.
It’s probably this adherence to the country’s traditional values that has made the Goring the only hotel in England to be awarded the prestigious Queen’s Royal warrant of approval. No surprise really for a hotel so intimately linked with the royal family. The Goring was once rumoured to be connected to Buckingham Palace via a secret passage and we’re sure that many a guest has roamed its halls in the hope of finding it. In 1945 the King and Queen celebrated the end of the war here by enjoying sausages and scrambled eggs and during the Queen’s coronation, the hotel was used as an annexe of Buckingham palace to host royal guests. In other words this hotel is as blue blood as it gets.Garden parties are hosted here and kept entertained by a full band, and the infamous black pudding is served at breakfast. Afternoon tea is of course, one of the highlights of the day and these tables have been serving some of this traditions finest for 100 years. Despite being a traditional hotel,the owners have allowed some of Britain’s most talented contemporary designers to work their magic on the rooms and the result respects the theme and heritage of this family establishment whilst providing a breath of fresh air in these time honored walls.
One night here will have the staunchest coffee drinker clamoring for tea, so if you want to get a Royal approved taste of authentic Britain, The Goring is where you want to be.
