All The Goring's 69 rooms and suites are individually designed, many by acclaimed British designers to create the atmosphere of a warm and inviting country house retreat with more than a touch of city sophistication. Designed by Russell Sage in 2009, the Silk Rooms have hand-woven Gainsborough silk wall coverings, while Nina Campbell introduced the spacious open-plan layout and stunning bathrooms in the studio-style Junior Suites. The Balcony Room, with the largest private balcony overlooking the gardens, was conceived by Tim Gosling and is a chic, open-plan space with stunning bespoke furniture.
It is only fitting that a family-owned hotel should welcome families. It is for this reason The Goring offers a children’s programme that includes a Bedtime Story Library and an arrival gift bag.
Take advantage of the complimentary use of Victoria’s LA Fitness Club just a short walk from the hotel where you will find a swimming pool, sauna, gym and massage treatments. Then, return for a light lunch on the terrace veranda, overlooking the gardens.
After lunch, head to nearby Knightsbridge, for a spot of designer shopping, or enjoy a leisurely amble through one of the Royal parks. Back at The Goring, indulge in a traditional cream tea of scones and clotted cream in the comfortable Garden Lounge or enjoy early evening cocktails on the terrace.
Later, savour wonderfully creative English cuisine and vintage wine in the Dining Room, recently refurbished by David Linley. Three stunning Swarovski crystal chandeliers complement the brightness of the room which are lowered at dinner for a more intimate ambience.
