This year's visit to London was highlighted by our return to the lovely Hampstead hotel, La Gaffe. We again enjoyed its quaint charm and homey atmosphere as well as the splendid service afforded to us by the owner, Lorenzo. The hotel is well situated near the Tube. We did a guided walking tour of the area and discovered interesting sites...

A home away from home is one of the very nicest compliments that we can receive. Thank you for your support.

Having driven past this place a million times and never knowing it was there, we found ourselves invited to dinner. Our coats were taken at the door and we were seated by the window. (A popular trick by restauranteurs to show busy.) The restaurant wasn't busy and it was Friday night, perhaps because this place is more of an hotel...

Thank you for taking the time to write a nice detailed review. We never can quite predict when we will be busy, sometimes a Monday night can be the most hectic night of the week!! Our location and the poor parking options limit our restaurant trade, although good for our guests that are staying with us. I hope you will...

This has been my go-to hotel in London. The hotel staff are lovely, professional and hard-working. The rooms are small but very cosy and warm and have anything you may need for your stay there. The hotel is cheaper than the average London hotel and Hampstead is very conveniantly placed on the Northern Line (Tube) which makes getting to central...

The rooms are small and quaint very clean, Lorenzo and Pino are excellent with their service and are extremely welcoming. Restaurant food is great and breakfast everyday is also great. I have stayed here 3 times and will do so on every trip to London.

I stayed at La Gaffe for 3 nights B&B at the beginning of December to visit my son who owns The Duke of Hamilton pub around the corner. The manager Lorenzo and all the staff were very welcoming, helpful and friendly. I had a ground floor bedroom which was very clean. Plenty refreshments were provided and I had an ensuite...

My wife and I spent nine nights in this delightful home from home made even more Situated in Hampstead, the hotel enjoys the best of both worlds. It is possible to walk for hours over Hampstead Heath to Parliament Hill in one direction, to Golders Green in another, and even to Kenwood and Hampstead Garden Suburb. Yet, it is a...

Our host, Lorenzo Stella and his team made us feel like we were visiting a friend's home for a few days during our trip to London this past weekend.

Needed to stop over in London ahead of a very early train journey the next day. All 'zone 1' hotels were ridiculously over-priced for last minute deals. However, only a few stops up the Northern Line to find La Gaffe in Hampstead and you uncover a gem. It's not large (10 rooms?), and it's not 'swanky' but what is instead...

Wonderful inexpensive food. I have been here countless times with my husband and never disappointed. I like the simple cafe dishes the most. I recommend this restaurant for a lovely warming plate of pasta.

A small delightful place to stay with a warm welcome from the friendly staff. The room was clean and the beds comfortable, which provided a good nights' sleep after our excursions. The en-suite was modern, but unfortunately the water pressure from the shower was not as good as we have at home. Location was a short walk to the underground.

LaGaffeUK, General Manager at La Gaffe, responded to this review

Thank you fr yor review and I am very pleased you enjoyed our atmosphere. Sorry to read about the water pressure..... It can be an issue in these older buildings with water tanks. However, we are aware and are addressing this by reviewing each room and intending to add water pumps to those that we have not already attended to.
