Opened in 1910, The Goring is the only hotel in London that is still owned and run by the family who built it. That doesn’t equate to faded grandeur though – the interiors are constantly being updated by the likes of David Linley, Nina Campbell and Tim Gosling. Now three new ‘Belgravia suites’ have been unveiled, with designer Russell Sage at the helm. Championing British craftmanship, the suites required a commission of six historic silks rewoven to order from the Suffolk-based Gainsborough Silk Company.
As Jeremy Goring says:
“They are all about quality, designed to last and to get better with age. They don’t feel like hotel rooms, they feel very personal, like the private home of some 19th century duke, but with brilliant mod cons and a bit of naughtiness.”
The Belgravia Suites are priced from HK$ 19,925excluding VAT per night.
