Never ask a lady how old she is but my fiancee has just had a big Birthday and as part of her celebrations I booked 3 nights in the Judy Garland suite in The Gore Hotel in Kensington. There is a but in this review, however that may not bother yourself so I will leave that till the end and start with the positives. Firstly and mainly the hotel is beautiful. From the freshly painted exterior, the corridors dripping with charm and character to the recently decorated suite with Judy Garlands bed pride of place for a great nights sleep. It was stunning with no tired or chipped paint to be found. (Does not bother me, but some guests it seems to) The staff was friendly and polite and as I pulled up the concierge came straight out to help with our bags and there was a lot. A small negative here is there is no load or unload area. Only a space that should have a permit so it is a rush to get your bags in and move your car before you get a ticket. However you only need to get them in as the concierge takes them to the room for you whilst you park the car. (There is no parking either so you need to arrange that separately. I would suggest Just Park and the Holiday inn only half a mile away and very secure) The food was gorgeous and you really need to have a drink or more in bar 190. The location for us was perfect. You are a little outside the centre of London but we enjoy walking and managed to walk to the London Eye and everything else without a problem. Being just outside the centre I found it made it easier to get to, with lighter traffic than a few miles in to London. The but, This is a shame as otherwise it would be perfect. There is a charge for everything. My booking confirmation said "breakfast is on us" but actually it was continental breakfast. For anything hot there was an additional £15 each per day per person. But the continental breakfast was great but I felt a little mislead. We had room service one night and just burger and chips and a board of meets and bread. The food was £36 and the menu said a £4 delivery charge. It said nothing of the £5 plus service charge. So there was a 33% increase to our bill for our room service which I thought is a little to much. The meal in the restaurant came with an £8 service charge. It is not the money that has down graded my review from an truly amazing hotel to a fantastic one but the principle. The Gore is a business and needs to make money to stay open but with the little bits and the misleading confirmation I felt like a customer rather than a guest. I will add however the next time I want to visit London I will defiantly stay at The Gore. But I will go there knowing how it works and will not be surprised by the service charges that you are not told about till the bill arrives. Collapse
Fantastic Location for visiting the Road Albert Hall

Just an overnight stay whilst visiting the Royal Albert Hall - literally 3 mins walk. The room was wonderful, and the hotel full of culture and history. Excellent bar and the staff very helpful and friendly. No shower caps in the bathroom though!

We stayed for one night as we were seeing a show at the Royal Albert Hall so we could walk there within a couple of minutes. The staff could not have been more helpful and we were offered an upgrade to a suite for a reasonable price. The room was beautiful and spotlessly clean. We had a few drinks in the bar later on after the show and some bar food and it was all really good. The bar has a lovely atmosphere although a bit cold (a roaring fire would have been perfect) and again the staff were helpful. Would highly recommend. Collapse

This hotel relies on its location (which is very nice especially for the Albert Hall). All started to go wrong at check in when we arrive at 14:35 (check in from 14:00) to be told room wouldn’t be ready for 40 minutes. Delux room long and thin (putting a couch in it doesn’t make it delux in my view) full length mirror unusable unless you actually got in the wardrobe in which it was located, tv weirdly located on bookshelf on left of bed? Toilet roll holder behind your head and near impossible to reach when “seated” (suggest avoiding room 213!) On the positive cocktails are good but extortionately expensive (£30 plus £3.75 “bar service charge” for 2 drinks), breakfast was very nice (until at checkout they tried to charge me for it when it specifically stated on my booking it was included) The rigmarole to get it refunded by what became a rude, moody petulant female member of staff confirmed I will not recommend or stay here again. I would Expect better for over £300 a night. Collapse

Thank you for making our visit to London so memorable. My friend and I absolutely loved our stay at The Gore! This hotel is so charming and the location is great. There are many restaurants nearby and the tube is a 5 minute walk. Our room with 2 single beds was ready when we arrived in the early morning. The room was small but comfortable and absolutely charming. The staff was very helpful and friendly, especially Florin who took the time to mark place of interest on a map for us. This is a small boutique hotel. I recommend to anyone looking to experience London. I can’t wait to go back! Collapse
