    Hotel: The Goring

    Beeston Place, London, SW1W 0JW

    From £345 per night for a Delightful room, £1,258 per night for the Belgravia suite; and from £8,400 per night for the Royal Suite.



    Situated just behind Buckingham Palace in the heart of Belgravia, this English institution is the only five-star London hotel that’s still owned by the family that built it in 1910. It is now run by Jeremy Goring, who is the fourth generation to take the helm.


    The hotel’s 69 rooms are all sumptuously decorated and have names such as Delightful and Splendid. The hotel has five suites and each one is by its own footman, who is at the guests’ beck and call. The Royal suite (above) which interior designer Russell Sage created out of five bedrooms, has two bedrooms, two reception rooms and a balcony that runs the length of the top floor, with stunning views of the city. Feeling more like a luxury apartment than a hotel suite, its has a traditional yet glamorous feel and features rewoven, historic silks by the renowned Gainsborough Silk Company, as well as a unique collection of British antiques.

    Famous For

    Its high level of luxury. Recognised as one if the world’s finest hotels, The Goring was named Hotel of the Year in 2010 and also won the World’s Best Service category. It also serves up beautifully cooked British food in The Dining Room- its Michelin-starred restaurant.

    Celebrity Guests

    The Goring is too polite to mention any famous visitors it might have, but the Queen is said to use the lounge area each year for her staff’s Christmas lunch.
