Editorial review:

The elegant 50-room Gore Hotel is full of polished mahogany, Oriental carpets and antique bathrooms. There are portraits and prints covering every inch of wall space. The Bistro One Ninety is a fine place for brunch or before or after a show at the Royal Albert Hall.

              • Perfect location, also very handy for the park Kensington and all in all very pleased and would definitely stay there again. Fantastic venue, the price was probably the best you could get for this class and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The bed linens were lovely, the food was excellent and dining experience was very contemporary.

                After complaining to the hotel we were invited back to try again, the fittings in the room were a bit old.

              • The location is perfect for walking in kennsington gardens and the hotel is very central for sights. Staff is very friendly, the showers were amazing, water pressure is a big thing for me and the bar is very well stocked. The breakfast is great and the drinks menu is expansive, and the cocktails are delicious.

                Service was poor and slow, the room was tiny.

Third, service was excellent, trevor, at the concierge desk, was wonderful and the room was well appointed and spacious. Breakfast the next day was good, i ordered from the menu and was lovely.

                The guest lounge area was not used at all and was some distance from the bar.

              • In a superb location and nice for an early evening stop. The hotel is lovely, not worth the money you can get far better and the style is definitely elegant decadence. Just a 1 minute walk away, within walking distance to all the well know attractions and the staff is really attentive and welcoming. The tudor room is spectacular and the excellent restaurant should lighten up on the salt used by the kitchen.

                Am determined to never stay anywhere else in London in future and poor service. Wooden furniture.
