“Confident, stylish and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

We went to meet up with family who were resident here. We discovered a luxurious hotel which has to be classed as 'boutique', but also has elements that would be more expected of large London hotels such as Ritz or Savoy. A knowledgeable concierge, a la carte dining, very well equipped rooms with a/c and flat screen tv. There are themed rooms too to add a touch to your stay. The bar here was used to film the Rolling Stones 'beggars Banquet' and has photos on the walls. The dinner we had was very good, and the restaurant is often used by theatre goers as it is only a stones throw from the royal Albert hall. As a boutique hotel, it is not cheap as none of these places are, but this hotel is an experience of confident London class and great service.

Our visit began with a delicious champagne afternoon tea, the scones were some of the best I have ever had. Our room was compact but had a delightful balcony overlooking Queen's Gate where we watched the world go by. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom a delight. The wardrobe was very small, not sure how we would have coped had we been staying for a few nights rather than just one. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, especially when we managed to jam our in-room safe - twice! Great location for the Royal Albert Hall and shopping in Kensington. Don't miss the fabulous Wholefoods store on the High Street. We would definitely stay at The Gore again.

Lovely hotel in a great location for hyde park and the Albert hall. Quite expensive but then it is London! On arrival receptionist was the most welcoming and didn't really listen to my questions but the lady on departure was lovely

Used The Gore for the 2nd time and I still find it a very pleasant venue and leave feeling we have been very well looked after. £17.50 for an English Breakfast is a tad steep but it was very difficult to fault. Two minus but trivial points.....I was not offered any choice of toast (brown/white) and coffee refills are hard to come by. I would still go back tomorrow and feel very spoilt.

I had a wonderful stay at the Gore Hotel. The stay were extremely friendly and attentive. The room, although small, was beautiful. The bar was inviting and the breakfast lovely. It is an extremely beautiful building and I couldn't have been happier.

We stayed in the Dame Nellie suite which is still beautiful but could do with a freshen up, it looked a bit tatty.The mirror had a big corner missing, there is no i pod dock or music and no free Wi Fi.

I was charged a full day of internet when I only used 3 minutes, even though they break it down hourly. It might have been my logout error. Smallish but charming rooms. The bar is cool.
Still, I love this hotel.
