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! Lorenzo- please come to Fayetteville and serve your Latte every morning to me! Lorenzo and his team are so welcoming and they make you feel a part of the family.... More

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

LaGaffe is my first choice when in London. The atmosphere is welcoming. The staff are friendly and always to help. Big smiles when you enter the inn. Lorenzo makes a hearty Cappucino and brings it with an ever present smile to your breakfast table. A family operated business that will not disappoint.

Great location, price, cleanliness, quiet etc. very well run local business. Short walk to shops, pubs, Hampstead Heath, Tube Station on and on. Also part of a very good Italian restaurant. Skip the big hotels. Great prices and free breakfast.

My husband and I were coming back to visit Hampstead and wanted to stay right in town. LaGaffe is in a great location - just up the hill from Hampstead Tube Station. The team was friendly and efficient. It felt like a quaint B&B with a continental-style breakfast and a wonderful Italian restaurant for a dinner meal. The rooms are... More

Thank you for your kind words. Next time you will need room 13 which has slightly fewer steps to deal with. Very happy you were able to dine with us...... Before we ever had rooms we were a long established restaurant. And my Mum did all the cooking!!! Best wishes. More
