Amongst the hundreds of accolades The Goring has, there is one that we feel is the finest, and that is London’s last family-owned luxury hotel! Nestled in a quiet part of London’s Victoria and just a stone’s throw from the station it really is perfectly situated for both corporate and leisure.
The Goring has over one hundred years of history delivering the finest level of hospitality and places a strong commitment to its service. There is also an equally strong emphasis placed on its staff training which is evident in every encounter you have within the property with every member of staff you meet.
The Goring was host to our networking event for October. It is the third time we have hosted an event with them and every single time we are blown away by the grandeur of this historic property.
Our event started with bubbles in The Drawing room which was also where we held our private dinner. The table was set spectacularly and drew many a “wow” on arrival. The Drawing Room can seat up to 12 for dinner or 20 theatre-style and it’s honestly, stunning.
The room has been refurbished and transformed with the most intricately woven wallpaper and contains a high spec plasma contained behind the guise of a mirror – it’s grand English design meets high spec tech. We loved it.
Before we sat down for dinner, we broke into two smaller groups and headed off on a site visit to see all the wonderful meeting and events spaces. There are several spaces at The Goring – you can find out their capacities here. You can accommodate anywhere from 4 to 100 in any of their stunning private rooms with The Garden Room the largest. The Garden Room even features into own conservatory, leading out onto The Goring’s gardens. As well as the room from which our dinner was being held (The Drawing Room), The Goring has a further two event spaces perfect for smaller meetings and dinners: The Silver Room and The Boardroom – both equally as stunning.
Up next on the site visit was to see the bedrooms. There are 69 in total with five different categories, each one individually designed and radiating the best in English design. The most luxurious being The Most Splendid Garden Rooms, overlooking The Goring’s private garden and with Gainsborough silk-lined walls, crisp Italian linen and lovingly crafted bespoke furniture, the Most Splendid Garden Rooms offer a touch of glamour.
After our site visit, it was time for dinner which was wonderful with both conversation and wines paired beautifully.
When it comes to dining at The Goring, there are a variety of choices. The fabulous Nathan Outlaw has just launched a brand new seafood restaurant, there are the world-renowned afternoon tea and a relaxed bar dining experience. We, of course, had our own private dining experience and the food was outstanding.
