The Goring Hotel to Unveil New Look
The Goring, a hotel which has been owned and managed by the same family since its opening in 1910, announced that the last phase of a top-to-bottom renovation would be opened to the public on March 2.
The project has involved four British designers, Nina Campbell, Tim Gosling, Russell Sage, and David Linley, in everything from the restaurant to the individual guest rooms and suites.
The storied hotel is using silks from the Gainsborough Silk Weaving Company to adorn the walls of the property and handmade wallpaper in the Front Hall from Fromenthal that shows a scene designed by Russell Sage detailing what would happen if all of the animals from the London Zoo had escaped into the park.
The Front Hall will also benefit from a restored marble floor, a Chippendale-style reception desk, and simplified wooden paneling that is being streamlined to create a larger space. The windows will be adorned with Gainsborough silk.
The Dining Room lobby is being completely redone with new seating. In addition, the men’s W.C. will be redone in black and white marble.
The renovations will be unveiled to coincide with the property’s 105th anniversary.
The Goring was the first hotel to receive a Royal Warrant for hospitality services from HM the Queen, and is the only hotel in London to have one.
