This hotel was recommended by a neighbor / friend of mine. I did not have time to try the restaurant, but as far as the hotel is concerned I strongly recommend it: welcoming and efficient check in by a kind and helpful Italian man; simple and pleasant breakfast, nice room with a good bedding... All of this in the great... More

I was booked to stay at La Gaffe with my elderly mother and had confirmation of the booking. When I arrived the hotel had not received the booking and was full. This was in no way the fault of either myself nor the management at La Gaffe. However Lorenzo went out of his way to reassure two travel weary strangers... More

Thank you so very much for your very kind, gracious and supportive review. It is VERY rare indeed that our system misses bookings made via a third party site. Following this occurrence I double checked all bookings for the period where there was an issue with our property management sysytem. More

Hampstead is a wonderful village just North of London. It's a very easy & quick tube ride to all of the shopping and tourist areas of London. The hotel was spotless and incredibly charming on a wonderful street just a block away from the incredible and picturesque Heath. A lovely cold breakfast was provided & the coffee was quite possibly... More

This establishment would really merit 3.5 stars from me but this isn't an option on the scale. It is a nice friendly restaurant with some rooms above it, situated in the heart of Hampstead village (this is an experience in itself). The room was very clean and the continental breakfast was fine. The building itself is historic and the restaurant... More

We, a family of 4, have stayed at the hotel several times at Christmas while visiting family. The location of the hotel is perfect. The service and hospitality are simply outstanding. Breakfast is very nice with boiled eegs and fresh fruit. Far better than many London hotels. I will warmly recommend this hotel, if you are visiting Hampstead.

Have been coming to this charming Italian restaurant since 1989! Only young teenagers then who found it by accident. We are now married and go back once a year just for the memories! We were not disappointed. The minestrone soup was perfect and our veal was delicious. The Irish coffee was made without all the fuss of whipped cream! The... More

I researched hotels in London for months before settling on La Gaffe. I really wanted a family-friendly hotel, something that felt British (with history and character), and a room that worked well for both my husband and me and our two children. Emailing the owner Lorenzo was what solidified my choice for me; he was so helpful and answered all... More

Oh - for the good life! That's what you receive at LaGaffe's B & B. The rooms were clean and well appointed. Dinner was the best in all of London!

Stayed there for a night and paid over £100. Thought that it must be a better than other 3 star hotel in London but it was pretty average. The room was clean and the service was good. But the room size was not that big, the furniture was basic, the breakfast was not really interesting either. I could hear people... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you do not feel that we represent good value. We are a small restaurant with rooms made up of buildings that were constructed in the 1850's. Our rooms are all on the small side in keeping with the the period architecture. We are very open that our rooms are all on... More
