Travelers' Choice
The Gore is the perfect base for discovering the many attractions the capital has to offer. It is just a short walk from Kensington Palace, the flower-lined avenues of Hyde Park, the fascinating collections in the Natural History Museum, London's temple of music - the Royal Albert Hall - and the most fashionable shops in Knightsbridge, including Harrods. Each of The Gore’s 50 rooms and suites is unique, with its own sophisticated elegance. Furnished with hand-picked pieces, period artworks and ornate beds, they are often described as some of the most enchanting in London. Old-fashioned attention to detail and taste immerses guests in an atmosphere worthy of the most famous television series and movies, from Downton Abbey to Gosford Park. At 190 Queen's Gate by Daniel Galmiche, the Michelin-starred chef Daniel Galmiche offers a sublime gastronomic experience, interpreting great British classics with a contemporary touch and exquisite French flair. The Gore's sophisticated interior makes it a unique and unforgettable venue for business meetings and private events, with three conference rooms and a lavish bar able to accommodate up to 50 people. From Concierge Team and 24-hour room service to Wi-Fi and a peaceful library, all hotel facilities are selected and personalised to offer a memorable stay in unparalleled comfort.

Can’t say enough about the hotel’s wonderful staff. Comfortable rooms ( although a bit tight), good breakfast selection and nice location. We walked to our dinner restaurants every night- no more than a 5-15 minute walk. Would definitely stay here again.

Hotel's Favorite
This is the most unique hotel I've ever stayed at, with the most wonderful staff. I wish I knew all of their names to shout each of them out personally. The rooms and furniture are totally unique from one another - my friend and I stayed in separate rooms and it was so fun to visit each other's and see how different they were. And, there is a library downstairs that we were able to relax in at the end of the night due to the bar being full. The staff was kind enough to invite us to sit in there and they brought us our drinks to the library. It was probably my favorite room in the building! We ate breakfast at the hotel each morning and it was truly incredible. Everything was so fresh and delicious and it was such a nice way to start our mornings. We also used the laundry services before we left and I really appreciated the care the staff took with my clothes. It's hard to say there is a highlight, because, as my title implies, all aspects of our stay were great. But, the staff is definitely the reason for that. Andre was someone who stood out - he always had a smile and was super helpful. We really appreciated him during our stay! But, the bar staff, the front desk staff, the restaurant staff, and anyone else we interacted with were just the kindest and most helpful. I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting London, and if I ever get to take a trip there again I'd want to book this hotel again.

Had to express how much we loved our stay at The Gore. It's a beautiful hotel in the perfect location to walk and explore London. Close to museums and Hyde park. The staff at the Gore are what make this hotel so special. So kind and helpful! Big shout out to the breakfast staff and the overnight front desk agent. He went above and beyond in assisting us with an issue we were having with a rail booking to Scotland. The hotel is beautiful and quaint. Full of beautiful and unique artwork. High end amenities in room and turn down service. We were treated like Royalty!!! The Gore made our first trip to London an experience we will never forget. Thank you!

I stayed for 4 days in a classic room that had a wonderful view from a large window. The bed and pillows were the absolute best. So much so that I ordered the same pillows from Tielle when I got back to Texas despite the high shipping cost. It is worth it. The breakfasts were excellent and the fresh fruits, omelettes and other breakfast items were superior. But the best were the staff. They made my stay so special and I want to mention them: Alex, Laura and Mireia at reception, George the concierge was the total best and recommended a dinner spot that I will never forget. The night team Fenn, Julian and Foved could not do more. The location is fantastic. I would definitely return on a future trip. I don't usually use so many superlatives and can be very critical but The Gore is doing it all exactly right! Bravo!!!

Interesting quirky hotel but tired in places - room decor needs a revamp. Stained walls. Marked carpet (even though it looked fairly new). Chipped paint on furniture. Room layout also a bit bizarre as the room we had was actually quite small really - very limited storage space (I’ve had more storage option in a Travelodge). The air con worked well though and the turndown service a welcome touch, with fresh water delivered to the room (we also asked for fresh milk that was kindly delivered in a jug and we kept in the fridge). Shower decent enough but it was over a bath which itself was very narrow and quite a high step over to get into it. Friendly staff. We had room service one evening and the food reasonably priced (fish goujons and fries) to be fair. Excellently located for Hyde Park and Royal Albert Hall plus the big London museums. Short walk further to some retail, Ken High St, tube etc. Not sure I’d stay again - if I did I’d have to pay more for a larger room.

Dear RobertWSaunders, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback following your recent stay at The Gore London. While we're very happy to see that there were many elements to your stay that you found enjoyable, we're disappointed that not everything was quite up to your expectations. We do have a wonderful collection of Junior Suites at the Hotel which offer more spacious accommodations, which I'm sure you'd be delighted with on your next visit.

We were happy enough with this place for the one night we stayed. We received a courteous welcome and the few staff we met were all very professional. Clearly the location is great for the museums and the Royal Albert Hall, though it's a 7-10 minute walk to the tube. We had a deluxe room and certainly the bed was extremely comfortable with lovely sheets. But the decor is very tired and threadbare in many places. The bathroom was also rather tired with a few bits missing. Then again it's not super expensive. Tip: Join the Star Hotels loyalty programme for free and get a decent discount - we did.

Stayed for one night. Room 210 which is a very small double. Bed comfortable with good quality bedding/pillows. However, the Room is in desperate need of painting along with a jolly good clean! Tiny shower Room - again needs deep cleaning! Reception staff very Friendly and profesional. We were disappointed that the restaurant is only available for breakfast and the bar doesnt open until 2pm. The hotel is perfectly situated for the Royal Albert Hall which is just a few minutes walk away.

Stayed here just the one night and I have to say we were pleasantly surprised given a few negative reviews re decor etc. Our classic room was small and a little noisy being first floor and facing the road, but the price for the location was extremely reasonable and we knew what we were booking. Room was in excellent shape, complimentary water with a top up for turn down an excellent touch. Food is indeed limited although the Cod Goujons in the Bar were fresh and a huge portion again sensibly priced. Drinks on the other hand are expensive. Overall this is a perfect base for an overnighter or very short break, and we will return if the need arises.

I chose this hotel due to location as I've never stayed so close to Hyde Park and the museums, and because of the advertised size of the Superior Rooms (248 sq. ft.). However, due to the design of the room, usable space was only around 150 sq. ft., with a very small closet and no shelving or hooks for storage. My husband and I were forced to live out of our suitcases for the six nights we stayed. I have travelled extensively, been to London numerous times, and understand city hotel rooms tend to be small...but that is not an excuse not to be honest about dimensions. The staff was very professional and pleasant, and the bar was very enjoyable. We did not have breakfast at the hotel so cannot comment on that. Overall, we loved our trip to London, but would not stay at this hotel again.

This is a small hotel located near Kensington Gardens and walking distance to South Kensington and Gloucester Road tube stations. Rooms vary greatly in size, so be sure you know what you are booking. Air conditioning in my room barely got below 21 degrees C (71 F) despite being on the minimum setting of 18 degrees. I asked for fan but this never showed up. Some room doors open right across from each other which can create a lot of noise (as was the case with room 209) with guests and housekeeping going in and out. The restaurant is closed so dining options are limited outside of breakfast. The most famouse part of this hotel is the 190 Bar. It is over 100 years old and full of character. Most nights, the bar tenders are friendly and skilled, but on slow nights the service is spotty. The bar does close relatively early, even for guests. There is only one common area in the hotel and sometimes it is booked for special events, so you may end up with no place to work except the bar or your room. Internet is a low standard with speeds less than 100Kb/sec most of the time. If you only need a place to sleep and a drink at the end of the day and you don't mind a warm room, then this is a nice hotel.
