The Gore London – Starhotels Collezione

Brimming with Victorian eccentricity, The Gore represents a piece of British history. Since opening in 1892, in an enviable location among the high-life hotspots of Kensington and Knightsbridge, it has been celebrated as one of London’s most enchanting hotels. From antique carved beds to original paintings, each floor is a treasure trove of period details and hand-picked pieces. Discover the luxury of yesteryear, immersed in the same atmosphere that has attracted celebrities, artists and aristocrats, and live among the settings that have featured in many films and been the backdrop to historically and culturally significant events of the 20th century.

Room Layouts & Capacities

The Gore is situated between Knightsbridge and Kensington, overlooking Queen’s Gate that leads up to Hyde Park. The hotel is just around the corner from the Royal Albert Hall and a short walk from Kensington Palace, while the shopping Mecca of Knightsbridge, including Harrods and Harvey Nichols, is just a short stroll away. The Gore is a five-minute walk from Kensington High Street and the museums of South Kensington, while a short underground journey will take you to the heart of the West End.

All of The Gore’s 50 lavishly appointed rooms and suites are individually furnished, creating a distinctive atmosphere that makes each one truly unique. They are all furnished with sophisticated elegance and a keen eye for detail, with beautiful antiques, period photos and ornately decorated beds. In particular the Judy Garland Junior Suite stands out for the original bed that the Hollywood star had built and transported to The Gore during one of her stays.

Home of the awarded Chef Frederick Forster (Chef of the Year 2011, Master of Culinary Arts 2013), our 190 Queen’s Gate restaurant combines the British culinary tradition with contemporary flavours to offer the ultimate Made-in-UK dining experience. Just around the corner from the Royal Albert Hall, such an authentic English restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy a tasty and genuine pre-theatre dinner before the curtain rises on stage. The adjacent Bar 190, which famously hosted the Rolling Stones’ Beggars Banquet album launch, has an informal, glamorous atmosphere, to be savoured while sipping the cocktail named after the prominent album.

The Gore is the perfect venue for business meetings and private events. For formal board meetings or cocktail parties, wedding receptions or gala dinners, formal lunches or film shoots, the 3 prestigious solutions at The Gore can accommodate up to 100 guests in a beautiful setting where 19th-century elegance and 21st-century facilities come together perfectly.

A sweeping staircase from Bar190 leads down to the impressive Tapestry Room. Flanked by two vast stone fireplaces, it is replete with panelled walls, gilded mirrors and French Verdue tapestries and features an original velvet Chesterfields sofa. It can be connected to the adjacent Mulberry Room for larger events.

The Library is an exquisitely elegant setting for a business meeting or dinner party of up to 24 people. Spacious, elegant and cozy, with plush sofas and comfortable armchairs, it’s flooded with day light through three large sash windows. The grand mahogany bookcase, intriguing oil portraits and original ornate fireplace make this a unique, intimate space for any private function.
