This hotel is a little expensive, but you definitely your money's worth. Hotel looks great, bed was extremely comfortable, staff was super friendly and helpful, and the food and drinks were great. Was a little far from the nearest Underground station, but bus stops were around the corner, and the concierge was always willing to hail a cab.

Booked 6 weeks earlier and paid in full to celebrate a 20th wedding anniversary. Upon arrival told that they had double booked us. Wouldn't offer a return but offered us a downgraded room but with free breakfast. We ended up in a sister hotel in a poor location which was 20 mins walk from hyde park instead of on the... More

The Gore,s Bistro Restaurant and Bar has a nice ambiance and comfortable chairs for a pre Show drink prior to going to the Albert Hall. Great expertise from the barman making a number of excellent cocktails. We found the Bistro offered good inexpensive light meals when we returned after a Prom.

This is a lovely upmarket hotel close to the Royal Albert Hall and everything is good quality. Our double room was small but not untypical, but there are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. The front windows are not double glazed so can be a little noisy when the 'supercars' are racing along at night. Nice cosy bar for... More

The Gore is one of the grandest old ladies in London's upscale district of Kensington. Unlike too many establishments around that area - just steps away from the Royal Albert Hall - it does not rely on location to impress its guests - instead it works hard to make one's stay a memorably luxurious experience. It exudes style and old... More

Had a pleasant one night stay here. It was an eccentric hotel in a nice way. The room facilities were excellent. It was quiet and a good nights sleep.

My stay at The Gore fell noticeably short of what I had expected – so much so, that a return visit any time soon, is highly unlikely. Let me flesh-out, so to speak, this gory ending: The hotel itself is tastefully decorated in a bygone style that I personally find attractive. The building is well maintained, though it lacks the...

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A quintessentially British hotel, just a glance from Hyde Park, The Gore offers luxury, privacy and undeniable character in equal measure. Since 1892, The Gore has been one of the capital's truly great hotels. The ethos of discretion, seclusion and excellence has allowed us to welcome a wide variety of fascinating guests through our doors. Described by the media as the most photographed, romantic hotel in London and lived in by a wealth of regular guests who have discovered their own home away from home, The Gore is a welcoming alternative from corporate hotel chains. Complete with the iconic Bar 190, the fabulous Bistro One Ninety and three bespoke event rooms, The Gore will make sure your stay is memorable whether it's just for a few hours or for a few days. We now offer exclusive hire at the Gore Hotel for private use, whether it's a private house party, your wedding or simply a corporate team building group. This can include bedrooms, bistro, bar and our event rooms. ... more   less
