Kate Middleton's favourite hotel named the best in the UK




 

From House Beautiful

The five-star London hotel where Kate Middleton spent the night before her royal wedding has been named Britain's best city hotel by hoteliers.

Run by the Goring family since 1910, The Goring is a favourite of the royal family and was where the Duchess of Cambridge stayed with her entourage on her last night as a single woman in April 2011.

The luxury hotel was named the City Hotel of the Year, while sitting third overall in The Caterer's 2018 Hoteliers' Hotels Top 100 list.

Voted for by the hotel industry, the winners' list saw London hotels dominate, with 42 of the top 100 hotels located in the capital, including The Connaught at number four, Claridge's at number five, Rosewood London in eighth place and The Ritz at number 10.

However, the top hotel in the UK was named as Oxfordshire's Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, in Great Milton, which retained the top spot for the second year in a row.

The country house hotel and renowned foodie destination was transformed by Raymond Blanc from a restaurant with rooms to a 32-bedroom hotel with cookery and garden schools, a two Michelin star restaurant and one of the UK's most impressive kitchen gardens.

Chris Gamm, editor of The Caterer, said: 'London has some of the world's finest hotels, combining prestige and elegance with cutting-edge design and cuisine, so it is no surprise that the UK's hotelier's rate the city's properties so highly. Voted by experts, the awards reflect the industry-high standards these hotels have achieved.'

The Duchess of Cambridge, who stayed in the Royal Suite, which has two en-suite bedrooms, plush four-poster beds and its own smartly-dressed footmen, returned to The Goring in 2015 to celebrate the hotel's 105th birthday.

The top 10 hotels from Hoteliers' Hotel Top 100 list:

1. Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, Great Milton, Oxfordshire
2. Chewton Glen, New Milton, Hampshire
3. The Goring, London
4. The Connaught, London
5. Claridge's, London
6. Lime Wood, Lyndhurst, Hampshire
7. Gravetye Manor, West Hoathly, Sussex
8. Rosewood London
9. Gleneagles, Auchterarder, Perthshire
10. The Ritz, London
