I booked this hotel mainly because of the convenient location and value for money. But to be honest I would have rather paid more and stayed somewhere pleasant than the horrible room we were given. The exterior of the hotel is lovely and is opposite a great pub. It's also 2 minutes from the tube so access to all the... More

Great location on Portabello Road. Quiet at night. The luxury Double was fairly small, and basic but adequate. Tea and coffe in room, and a comfy bed. Owners quite helpful. You pay for the location, and the size of the room is probably a fair reflection of what you'd get in other hotels in London. Less than 5 minutes walk... More

I stayed here for a week in June 2005. I was a female travelling solo, and felt very safe in the area, even coming back late after a show. Very tiny room, and tiny bath, but at least it was private. Decor was kind of run down, but seemed pretty clean. My mini fridge did not work when I checked... More

Me and my partner recently stayed at the Gate Hotel. It is now under new management and I have to say the new owner was great. She helped us with local information and made our stay very comfortable. Room sizes are ok, what do you expect for a small hotel in Notting Hill. Breakfast was delivered to our room at... More

For the price, it was quite nice. The room was tiny and the bathroom miniscule, but it was clean and homey. The staff was friendly but seemed busy and hard to catch. I had an overnight flight and was allowed into my room much earlier than their posted check in time- they were even apologetic that I had to wait... More

Great value. Not exclusive. Not a very professional staff. Not the coolest decoration in the world, more british as we all know looks quite awfull (sorry brits). The bathroom is quite nice though. The staff is on the contrary very nice and try to do what they can to help you. Instead of a breakfastroom you get it in you're... More

My best friend and I found The Gate Hotel while walking through Notting Hill one day. We had already stayed a couple days at another horrible hotel and could not stand it any longer. We asked for a room for the next ten nights, although on such short notice, we were not expecting much. The hostess was so nice and... More

Cramped. The bathrooom door didn't close. Only place to sit was on the bed or on a badly stained stool. Carpet soiled. Proprietress arranged a "taxi" to Victoria Sta but some private car showed up, which was not allowed to use the taxi access to Gatwick Express. Relatively cheap at GBP 80 but still very poor value for the money.

This was my hotel of choice when a husband and wife team owned it a few years ago. They were delightful and it was a cute place. It was then sold to other owners and my experience there with the new owners was really less than gracious. I had the misfortune of catching the flu while staying there-in a mildew-y... More

If you make a reseravation, contact the Gate DIRECTLY, do not make a reservation through a service. They are awful. I received a reply back from the Gate directly and they are very pleasant and have been having trouble with Londonby.com. So remember that when you contact a service, they are not the hotel itself.
