6 reviews of The Gore Hotel in English
Extraordinary - it was like living in an episode of Antiques Roadshow - and the lounge is lovely, though the room can be a struggle to keep warm in winter even with the fireplace. Still - you can fill yourself up with complimentary coffees and teas from the marvellous and ingenious no-mess Nespresso machine with their delicious light as a feather shortbread, sit by the fire and digest the day's Newspapers - I stayed in the room directly above the entrance with balcony in November 2010.
Surprisingly they do not have BBC Radio 3, 4 or The World Service in the rooms, although they do have digital TV, which I couldn't find radio on. This is an oversight for the official Proms hotel - peculiar. I expect to see 'Pure' stereo DAB radios in each room in due course!
Whatever you do, do not get the front desk to call you a cab - by arrangement with the hotel they charge a minimum of £13, and this was just down the road to the cinema! Call a mini cab yourself and wait near the door outside
We recently booked the Gore directly. We had a confirmed reservation number, we travelled four hours to this hotel, to be told that there were no rooms and we had been booked into their sister hotel 'The Pelham', we had booked this hotel as it was a recommended hotel by the Royal Albert Hall,within walking distance,where we were attending a concert that evening.
Travellers beware, and ask if you will definitely have a room in this hotel.......
admittedly, I have never stayed here myself, but visitors from abroad keep coming back. all rooms are individually styled and have typical British charme without being naff. I have first-hand experience of the excellent bar, though, which is ideal for post-Proms drinks.
