The Goring is Pride of Britain's Hotel of the Year

The Goring in central London has been named "Hotel of the Year" by the Pride of Britain Hotels consortium.

The annual award is handed out to one of Pride of Britain's 37 member hotels. Three were shortlisted this year before each was visited covertly by mystery guest couples and a winner declared.

Peter Hancock, chief executive of Pride of Britain Hotels, said: "Our 37 member hotels are very different but one thing they all have in common is a dedication to great hospitality.

"From this year's inspections we were convinced that The Goring most perfectly demonstrates the ability to deliver truly outstanding hospitality every day of the year."

David Morgan-Hewitt, managing director at The Goring, added: "We are delighted to win Hotel of the Year. We have a superb staff at The Goring and their dedication and inate hospitality has shone through. Next year is our Centenary and to win this is a great start to the build up for the celebrations."
