The Gore Hotel is a luxurious and quintessentially British boutique hotel a stone's throw from Hyde Park and the Royal Albert Hall in South Kensington, London. One of the most romantic luxury hotels in London and certainly the most photographed, this secluded Chic Retreat is a home away from home for its regular and first time guests.


Bar 190 is one of the best places to meet and drink in central London. Cocktails, champagne, wines and a great selection of spirits and beers can be enjoyed and it is the perfect place to meet for pre-show drinks before walking to (or from) the Royal Albert Hall. The wide range of signature cocktails, made with home infused spirits and created by the Gore's very own creative bartenders, will keep you happy throughout the evening! Voted one of the best hotel bars in London 2011 by Square Meal Guide, it is not to be missed.  

Bistro One Ninety has a well-earned reputation throughout London for its informal atmosphere, fine dining and lively, all-day restaurant. Guests enjoy fantastic service and excellent food created from the best ingredients available, and the extensive wine list is hand picked and includes rare and fine wines. Bistro One Ninety is the ideal partner to events at Royal Albert hall with pre or post theatre dining menus available, and last orders are taken up until 11.30pm.

The Gore Hotel is unique in style and character and the 50 rooms and suites are often described as some of the loveliest in London. Antique furniture, period pictures and hand carved beds add to the romantic feel and gothic backdrop of the rooms which range in size from Queen and Wonderful Doubles through Luxury Doubles and Deluxe Rooms, to the sumptuous Tudor Room which is one of kind in London with its oak four-poster bed, a 15th-century Minstrels' Gallery, high oak-beamed ceilings, Portland stone fireplace, candelabras and rich furnishings, named by many as the most romantic hotel room in London.

For a slightly more modest affair why not book the Judy Garland room, yes she did stay here and liked to call herself a resident, so much so that she had her own gilt wood bed flown over from America to The Gore and it is still here today. The double rooms are smaller but very enchanting and have a Queen-size carved wooden bed.

Each room features a TV and DVD player as well as only the very best linen, dressing gowns and pillows from Frette. Fresh and colourful fruit will be waiting for you in your room as well as a charger to fit every phone.
