The Gore is the perfect base for discovering the many attractions the capital has to offer. It is just a short walk from Kensington Palace, the flower-lined avenues of Hyde Park, the fascinating collections in the Natural History Museum, London's temple of music - the Royal Albert Hall - and the most fashionable shops in Knightsbridge, including Harrods. Each of The Gore’s 50 rooms and suites is unique, with its own sophisticated elegance. Furnished with hand-picked pieces, period artworks and ornate beds, they are often described as some of the most enchanting in London. Old-fashioned attention to detail and taste immerses guests in an atmosphere worthy of the most famous television series and movies, from Downton Abbey to Gosford Park. At 190 Queen's Gate by Daniel Galmiche, the Michelin-starred chef Daniel Galmiche offers a sublime gastronomic experience, interpreting great British classics with a contemporary touch and exquisite French flair. The Gore's sophisticated interior makes it a unique and unforgettable venue for business meetings and private events, with three conference rooms and a lavish bar able to accommodate up to 50 people. From Concierge Team and 24-hour room service to Wi-Fi and a peaceful library, all hotel facilities are selected and personalised to offer a memorable stay in unparalleled comfort.

Overnight stay in the Tudor Suite, an absolutely beautiful room, dark wood panels, heavy curtains, four poster bed, ornate furnishings. Very atmospheric. The hotel is small but lovely throughout. The highlight is the bar, which serves some incredible cocktails. Well worth a stay. Great location in Kensington, a few metres from Hyde Park.

There were many things we loved about The Gore but without a doubt, our favourite thing was the warm welcome and service we received on check-in. All of the staff were kind, friendly and helpful. The Gore is a hotel with charm. It has a quintessentially old England hotel feel with beautiful attention to detail in both the decor and the features within the hotel. Staying around Christmas time we got to enjoy the beautiful Christmas trees and decorations. We spent time in the bar and had breakfast within the hotel, for both we received excellent service and great quality food. Even though there is no buffet breakfast there is still a large choice of continental and A La Carte breakfast options, everything was served fresh and hot. There is a beautiful, ornate library within the hotel where you can enjoy beverages and food too. Our room was small (as we only stayed one night) however it was well equipped and offered a turn-down service. The location is central within walking distance to many landmarks however very quiet. We stayed on the top floor and got to enjoy the views of London. We would absolutely stay at The Gore again!

From stepping through the door, one just knew the personnel service was going to be there . Many of the reviews below sum it up ideally, there is however a But .... and now we know ..... booking a classic room as they call it , is these days a bad move . Even your smallest cat 🐈 could not be swung without serious damage. These are VERY small rooms with matching bathrooms, worse of all just a standard double bed. For the bigger boned among us far from comfortable . So spend the extra and as they offer in some fast food outlets “go large “ The bar area although compact is interesting, and the breakfasts are excellent. Just not sure about the service charge added to everything 🤔 For sure we will go back and will book something bigger than the hutch and will enjoy it even more for sure .

The Gore Hotel is located right next to Kensington Gardens and very close to the Royal Albert Hall. This a unique hotel, different from the normal chains and comes with special character and service. On arrival for our 3 night stay, the porter grabbed our bags. Check in was quick, personable and I knew straight away this hotel would be good. The room was small, but functional, and very clean. The features really made the hotel feel like a home from home. Turn down service each evening was a nice touch. The staircase, historic rooms and pictures are all there to be enjoyed, and leaves plenty of areas to relax in away from the room if you wish. Breakfast was about the best I have had in a hotel, attentive staff, that even personally take you from the reception to the breakfast room, to the serving staff, fantastic. Freshly cooked food to an excellent quality and a big choice of popular dishes. We had an inclusive breakfast so we was surprised to see a service charge for each day but the £4.95 was worth the perfect service displayed. The cocktail bar really nice, with the same attentive service, but can get busy and you may have a short wait to get inside. The wait was worth it. Drinks are expensive but taste amazing. Some very small issues, the WI-FI was slow throughout the stay and sometimes did not work at all. And the restaurant is closed until next year. We would have loved to try dinner here. It’s the staff that make this hotel so special, relaxing and home from home vibe. We will definitely return. BeLu.
