I stayed for 4 nights with work, my first visit to The Gore having stayed in most of the better hotels in S Kensington this summer.
Work had booked me into a single room which was on the small side but had a nice sized bathroom. Furnishings were good quality, but the TV was too small and of poor quality - my kids have better ones in their bedrooms! The window looked onto next door 3 meters away, and there was not even a view.
Buffet breakfast was very good quality and plentiful.
I ate in the restaurant on 1 evening and the food was also very good but pricey. I also ate room service and whilst the food was good and reasonably priced the choice of evening meals was shocking - the worst range I've ever experienced in a top hotel. When I queried this with the room service staff I was effectively told "that's it, tough!".
So what could have been a rare 5/5 review from me was spoiled by the room service (lack of), view (lack of) and TV (poor).
