Fodor's Review

The name of this simple B&B (located above an Italian restaurant) means "the mistake" in Italian, and is also the punchline to the unlikely tale of how the original husband-and-wife proprietors met in the 1950s—but it also rather neatly chimes with the cockney term "gaff," meaning a simple, cozy residence. Standard rooms are indeed tiny and have few amenities, though some have four-poster beds, and the honeymoon suite (a mere £30 more than a basic room) has its

own Jacuzzi. There's a summer patio in the enclosed courtyard and the restaurant itself serves good, traditional Italian food at reasonable prices.
