At The Gore we wear our heritage lightly. Since 1892, we have been providing guests with understated elegance and impeccable service. As quintessentially British as our near neighbor The Royal Albert Hall, we have won hearts and minds with gracious, personal attention and agreeable luxury that recalls a gentler era and the best traditions of grand hotels.
Today, these traditions are charged with new energy. Our new restaurant, 190 Queen’s Gate, brings both wit and wisdom to fine dining, re-imagining a whole range of comforting classics. Meanwhile Bar 190 is lighting up Knightsbridge and beyond with a vibrant ambience and eclectic drinks selection.
This fin-de-siècle period piece was founded by descendants of Captain Cook in two grand Victorian townhouses. The lobby and staircase are hung with old paintings, and the bedrooms all have fantastic 19th-century carved oak beds, sumptuous drapes and shelves of old books.
The suites are spectacular: the Tudor Room has a huge stone-faced fireplace and a minstrels’ gallery, while tragedy queens should plump for the Judy Garland room with her old bed (and replica ruby slippers). Bistrot 190 provides a casually elegant setting for great breakfasts, while the warm, wood-panelled 190 bar is a charming and sophisticated setting for cocktails.
