For an awesome experience just round the corner from the Royal Albert Hall look no further. The staff here are excellent and nothing is too much trouble. Stayed in The Tudor Room also known as The Elizabeth Suite which was just amazing and made it even more amazing when we found out the Rolling Stones stayed in it! Yes all...

We were here for a short stay of 3 nights. We came by car and could park nearby for free because the day of arrival was sunday followed by a bank holiday. The last day we parked in a garage nearby for about 30£. We enjoyed the personal attitude of the personel. Despite the fact that the building was being...

We stayed at the Gore Hotel the week before Christmas and loved everything about it. The location is fantastic. A short walk to Hyde Park, The Royal Albert Hall, The Victoria and Albert Museum, shopping and restaurants. Located between 2 underground stops that are about a 10 minute walk. Everything about the hotel is very London. The bar is the...

My brother, sister, and I went on a European vacation together this past April that ended in London. By the time we checked into the Gore, we were exhausted from travels but meeting Trevor immediately improved our spirits. He is an absolute delight. He was so personable, always had a joke at the ready, and could answer any question we...

There was renovation going on and we had lots of discomfort. We were in two rooms. The room on 1 st floor:It was not possible to open the balcony door due to the scaffolding. Also the balcony door was too old and wind was blowing through. The room was unbelievably small. The second one on 5 th floor had even...

We stayed at the Gore at the end of April. We had booked a basic room, and it was as described and pictured. Although small, it was charming and well-decorated, with a gorgeous tall old headboard. The bathroom - while also small - had plenty of counter space for our things and a good size new, modern shower. The bed...

After reading the reviews, we were really looking forward to our stay at this hotel. We booked a superior twin room and had requested, in our reservation, for a room on the highest floor if at all possible. Check in wasn't smooth as the check in person had a hard time explaining the rates and additional 50 pounds per day...

This was honestly the best hotel I have ever stayed in. A beautiful small hotel in a perfect location. It was very close to Hyde Park, and a small shopping street for locals with fantastic restaurants like Launceston Place. The staff is incredibly kind and helpful, and remembered us on our second visit. The hotel is very charming, quiet, and...

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
