We booked The Gore for last Friday on recommendation from the Royal Albert Hall as we were attending a concert there. My booking was for a "Wonderful Twin Room' on a bed and breakfast rate of £285. As promised it was very handy for the concert. The staff were warm and friendly and the food in their Bistro 190 was very good. Unfortunately my Wonderful Twin turned out to be a double and when I said there must be some mistake I was told that the rather dilapidated leather sofa also turned out into a sofa bed. My mistake was in accepting this. I should have made a fuss and asked for proper twin beds but being quite an easy going sort of person I said I'd give it a shot...big mistake. Hideously uncomfortable night. I e-mailed the manager when we got home on Saturday and had hoped for some sort of explanation but so far no reply. Also worth noting that there are no tea or coffee making facilities in the room, the TV was pretty old and didn't have the usual radio or red button facilites. All things I would expect for this kind of price. Also, although I asked by e-mail for a booking in the Bistro for 6pm when we got there it hadn't been made and they were fully booked. Fortunately the bistro is open all day so the best they could do for us was a very early dinner at 4pm so we didn't starve. In retrospect it was the staff who saved the day, if they hadn't been so kind and cheery this would all have been a disaster which would have been a great pity because it was a special night out for my husband and me.
