Some hotels have a hard time making a definitive case for themselves, but not the Goring — this Belgravia luxury hotel can claim, with ample justification, to be the lodging of choice for guests who, for one reason or another, find the accommodations at Buckingham Palace to be less than ideal.

Of course for most of us the problem with staying at Buckingham Palace is that we haven’t been invited — in which case the Goring is a fine substitute indeed. Officially the last hotel built during Edward’s reign, and the first in the world to feature en suite bathrooms, it’s now London’s lone family-owned luxury hotel. And while it goes without saying that they’ve made some changes since the early days, the atmosphere of the place is as Edwardian as it ever was.

A fair proportion of the sixty-nine rooms and suites look out over the hotel’s gorgeous garden (one of the largest private gardens in the capital), though the rest, overlooking Victoria Square or Beeston Place, are hardly troubled by city traffic. All are individually decorated by renowned British designers, with Gainsborough silk wallpaper adorning the walls and the finest materials used throughout. The latest state-of-the-art technology is there as well, but it’s subtly incorporated into the elegant décor. Space forbids an exhaustive list of room amenities, and anyway, the point of a hotel like the Goring is that anything that’s somehow left out can be counted on to make an appearance within moments, on a silver platter.

Which brings us to the Dining Room. The Goring’s food and beverage program is utterly traditional, serving the best of British cuisine under the direction of chef Shay Cooper. The Goring doesn’t go in for concept restaurants or TV-star chefs, just a very fine dining room supplied by a highly skilled and impeccably sourced kitchen. The cocktail bar is a Belgravia institution, and the afternoon tea is a similarly hot ticket. There are newer hotels, obviously, as well as bigger ones, but none quite like this.
