We stayed at The Gore in April 2010. On the plus side is the location. Its next to the Albert Hall, the V&A, Hyde Park, a short distance from Harrods, the Tube and of course some great bars and restaurants in Kensington. The hotel is ok, a good bar area (and very lively) and the room almost suggested a traditional English/London elegance without actually delivering. The fittings in the room were a bit old, the toilet antiquated; the guest lounge area was not used at all and was some distance from the bar. Retiring to the lounge with a glass of port and some good company did not happen! We thought it expensive for what it was.... but hey, the location - as good as it gets in London!
