Have visited this restaurant once before so as I was waiting to go to the Royal Albert Hotel my colleague and I decided to dine here. We didn't have much time but the staff were excellent. Food was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed it. .

My wife and I booked 5 months in advance for a one night stay on Sat 18th Nov 2017. We chose the Gore Hotel solely due the fact that it was just a 2 minute walk to the Royal Albert Hall where we were due to attend a concert to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. With less than 24 hours to go before the trip I received an email note from the Gore hotel staff advising that the Deluxe room that we had booked way back in June was no longer available due to "unforeseen circumstances". I’ve stayed in enough hotels over the years to know that this usually means that someone else more important wanted to make a booking and as a result the hotel staff look for existing bookings that can be changed to make way for a special guest. In this case our long-standing reservation was cancelled. We were not offered any alternative room at the Gore Hotel but were instead provided with an alternative room at a sister hotel called The Pelham in South Kensington. We had no choice but to accept the change of booking bearing in mind the short notice, it would have been impossible to find another hotel so close to the Albert Hall with less than 24 hours to go before our trip. The email note from the staff at the Gore Hotel advised us of a change and explained that our reservation for a Deluxe Room at the Gore Hotel had been “upgraded” to a Junior Suite at the Pelham Hotel – a sister hotel further away from the Royal Albert Hall. Upon arrival at the Pelham Hotel it was clear that the suggested upgrade was not quite what it seemed. Although the room offered was labelled as a Junior Suite, it clearly was not. Room 206 at the Pelham Hotel was a single room with a bathroom attached - a fairly standard hotel room, certainly not a Junior Suite by any stretch of the imagination. From the Pelham Hotel we faced a 15 minute walk to the Royal Albert Hall for our evening show rather than the 2 minute walk from the Gore Hotel which we had originally booked. To make matters worse it started to rain 5 minutes into our journey. We arrived at the Royal Albert Hall soaking wet and we sat in damp clothes throughout the performance. This was heart-breaking and it really took the shine of the concert that I had booked so far in advance to celebrate such a special occasion. On the way to the Royal Albert Hall we walked passed the Gore Hotel and I went inside to see if there was any renovation work being undertaken or anything else that would have caused our original room booking to be cancelled at the last minute. Unsurprisingly there were no signs of any work being undertaken and with guests coming and going the Gore Hotel seemed to be running as normal and so I could not see any reason at all why our booking would have been cancelled other than another a more important booking being received that would have caused us to be “bumped”. In spite of our disappointment I have to say that the service at the Pelham Hotel was fantastic. The staff couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating but that is not the point. We went out of our way to book a room at the Gore Hotel far in advance for a very special occasion. To find that we were expected to just accept an alternative booking further away from the Albert Hall at such short notice was frustrating and is not good customer service at all. If this issue had arisen weeks before the concert then I would have cancelled our booking and looked elsewhere but as it was we were not in the position of having any real choice given the extremely short notice provided. I’d like to sound a note of caution to anyone thinking of staying at the Gore Hotel. Although the staff are super friendly and the hotel appeared to be a pleasant place to stay (from what I could gather during our brief pop-in on the way to the Royal Albert Hall) you should be prepared to accept a risk that your reservation could be changed at extremely short notice and you could be asked (or infact told) that you will instead need to stay in an alternative hotel. If like us you will be visiting the Royal Albert Hall then you should be aware of this as the walk could be considerable – it took us 15 minutes from the Pelham Hotel to the Albert Hall in the pouring rain – we timed it. In summary, The Gore and the Pelham hotels are both nice but be careful with any reservation that you make – it might get changed at very short notice – be prepared ! Collapse

Short London break and our first time at The Gore. Beautiful decor and has a lovely feel to it. Room was very classy, comfy bed and nice and quiet. Did not get chance to use the bar but this is a must for next time we stay - which will be soon! Can’t speak highly enough of the staff. Everyone particularly friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Adela who helped us through a medical emergency during the night. A decent walk to the nearest tube stations which was no problem for us but may be for others. Highly recommend Collapse

We stayed for one night last Friday in one of the themed rooms. The room itself was clean and well presented with all you would need. It was a themed room with a four poster bed which was very comfortable and a themed bathroom which had an old throne style toilet - which although quite amusing I found a little difficult to use. The shower was excellent. Unfortunately there were a few operational difficulties during our visit. The television remote wasn't working and had to be replaced. The 'theme' toilet had an old style tank and the mechanism kept sticking when used, resulting in constant running water in the toilet - and finally, I used the kettle to make a cup of coffee in the morning which fused the entire room. The receptionists response to this was that it was 'always happening' - well here's a thought then..... get it fixed! We had a few drinks in the bar (which unfortunately closes even to residents at 11pm), and my 'themed' gin and tonics were served in very large glasses crammed full of ice, with the result that after the first few sips, you drink a lot of water. For £15 a shot - I'd like to taste the gin. The hall porter was excellent with a great sense of humour. Overall - I'd stay here again, but would probably prefer a non- themed room. Collapse
