The Gore was comfortable and clean. A throwback to London hotels as I remember them from the 1970's.

Hotel Description

If you need a respite from the corporate efficiency of London’s modern mega-hotels, you’ll appreciate the uniquely English spirit of the Gore. This charming boutique hotel is packed with history, its six floors abloom with Victorian eccentricity.

Sisters Ada and Fanny Cooke opened the Gore on this scenic tree-lined street in Kensington in 1892. Today it’s a bit of an exception in the hyper-luxe London hotel scene, as it seems to prize character well above luxury — which is not the backhanded compliment it sounds like, but a genuine one.

The Gore’s 50 guestrooms are individually decorated with exotic fabrics, antique furniture and period prints. Judy Garland was a past patron of The Gore, and when you stay in her namesake room you’re guaranteed a night’s rest in her old gilt wood bed. The Miss Ada room, named after one of the hotel’s founders, has a four-poster bed draped in crimson velvet and a bathroom with a toilet shaped like a throne. Though luxury-hotel devotees may find these rooms a bit sparse, wi-fi access and flat-screen televisions are standard throughout.

In-house you’ll find the well-regarded Bistro One Ninety Queen’s Gate, as well as the similarly clubby and intimate Bar 190. Unlike many modern London boutiques, The Gore plays up its classic Englishness, and its location in central Kensington only exaggerates the effect. Hyde Park, Royal Albert Hall and countless other museums and attractions are within close walking distance, and the Gloucester Tube station is blocks away.
