Great location for Albert Hall
Friendly receptionist with efficient check in. Room pretty small - could only just walk around the bed but ok. Very handy location for Albert hall and great bar which you don’t always get in a hotel

Cosy luxury hotel in Kensington
The Gore is a cosy hotel with helpful and friendly staff and a British vibe. I recommend for a leisure stay maybe not a high pressure business stay where business centre facilities may be needed. I considered my double room large for London with a wonderful bed and good street view. Kensington Gardens/Hyde Park are minutes away for recreation. This was my second stay and I hope to stay again. Thank you Team Gore!

Decided to stay over Christmas. 24th to 27th Staff at reception were excellent. Room was slightly small, but the decoration was lovely. Bed was delightful. Breakfast on xmas day was not the best. Hard poached eggs, only one option for sausage. Not very hot. .as im a chef. It seemed like the person doing breakfast didn't want to be there. WHICH was mentioned to management. Asked about xmas day meal, and was told,, "Sorry fully booked " (not the best answer for our stay) Had to ask at reception twice during our stay if we could get service at the bar , as nobody was about, Ordered hot chocolate for the room, Had to take it back to reception, as it was Luke warm, and ther was a mound of powder in the bottom of the cup not mixed . Boxing day breakfast, i asked if they had a vegetarian sausage option. As i didn't like the Boar sausage option available No was the answer. So i queried this at reception. I was told that there was a vegetarian option. Then was told, sorry we haven't got any. Overall the stay was nice. But considering this was a CHRISTMAS stay , I was disappointed with the small attention to detail of such a lovely place, especially being told we couldn't have the Christmas day main meal. Would i stay again,, possibly yes,, Manager and staff were lovely.

Character Hotel, convenient for Albert Hall
This is so convenient for the Royal Albert Hall - literally a 5 minute walk. It is full of character and apparently was built as a hotel for the Great Exhibition. Lots of really interesting pictures on the wall and a very cozy lounge. The room was very warm and unfortunately we had not noticed the radiator had been turned up to the maximum until the next morning - we had been trying to regulate via the air conditioning which we could not get to work. The hotel was apologetic when we checked out and credited our bar drinks from the bill. A very welcome gesture from them.

Our new go to London Hotel
Our stay at the Gore was incredible. We stayed there on the last day of a quick visit to England. The staff were very welcoming, polite and helpful. The room was immaculate and comfortable. A handwritten note topped it off. Our bed was turned down, our curtains draw and slippers were positioned by the bed when we went out. We decided to eat at the hotel’s restaurant “190” and could not recommend the dining experience more. We capped the night in the wonderfully appointed bar. The hotel had allowed a slightly later check out which enabled a brief sightseeing trip in the morning. The only slight blight was the arrogance and shortness of the bar tender, but that 2 minute interaction absolutely would not stop us recommending the Gore and it’s fantastic staff. It will be our go to hotel for London. The experience was great value for the very reasonable price we paid.

An exceptional hotel in the heart of London
The premises are unique and themed so well - nothing feels out of place and adds to the overall feeling of this one-of-a-kind hotel. The staff were all friendly, the food was excellent and my stay in the Tudor Suit was just exquisite. I'd highly recommend The Gore and will definitely be coming back for my next stay in London.

Charming hotel in London
The Gore Hotel was delightful. It is small and charming. Full of character. I so enjoyed the library that has a fire going in the fire place. It was a perfect place to work.
