The Gore was recommended to me by a friend who lives in South Kensington. She has an impeccable sense of style and suggests it to international visitors who want a 'taste' of London. The Gore was exactly as she described it and is an excellent introduction to 'Victorian' London. Although I only stayed briefly, the experience was a perfect introduction...

We have eaten here each time we go to a show at the Albert Hall because of its location. We enjoyed another excellent meal served by very attentive staff. The restaurant is cosy and intimate with a good menu and good choice of wines. The meal couldn't have been better for us.

Great location, lovely hotel, very pleasant, helpful and attentive staff. only small negative, it took a while for hot water to run through for shower and sink. Otherwise there was little to not like and much to admire.

In a city with no lack of "show-off" refurbishments and gltzy hotels, this is unique home away from...

I’m pretty sure if you follow all my recommendations you’re going to be running out of energy because there's so much going on this season! Spend a night at The Gore in Chelsea to recharge your batteries! The 5-star hotel which is opened since 1892 is the neighbour with Royal Albert Hall and recalls a luxurious atmosphere and the best...

Stunning hotel, wonderful staff. Expensive but well worth it, marked down on the value as the bar was overpriced. Booked for convenient location. Will certainly return, next time to try The Tudor Room

No bed if you like old English atmosphere. Overpriced as rooms and bed are really small. Room close to the elevators and housekeeper room... very noise from 7 am! Concierge and receptionist , really top level service!

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood 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
