Four of us stayed for our sons wedding. This was the first time we had stayed in a b and b yet alone in London. We could not have been made to feel more comfortable. Avril is a brilliant hostess and was very helpful when it came to helping us find our way to the wedding venue.

We arrived late on a tuesday and were greeted by the owner who lives next door. She was very friendly and helpful. The room was small but very cozy, everything was fresh and clean. In the morning we were served a nice breakfast that we had in the pretty backyard. Worth noting is that they had the best coffee we... More

My mother, young son and I stayed at the Kandara guest house a few weeks ago. Our triple room was spacious, spotlessly clean and the beds comfortable. Avril and her family run the place brilliantly. You only see them for breakfast but they live in the house next door so are at hand quickly if needed. So loads of privacy... More

I made a last minute booking and Alec was super helpful. He was aware that I was in a hurry so quickly showed me to my well kept room, warned that there was no air conditioning and a hot night ahead, and left me to it. I had room number 3 on the top floor and it was lovely. Comfortable... More

Kandara is just a great place to stay. So clean,friendly and with a very nice breakfast.It is quiet at night,nothing desturbes your sleep. We had a room for three,100£ pr.night.Only one closet to share, maybe a little minus.

Very impressed with this guest house, super friendly and a fantastic breakfast. The room are clean and very comfortable. It's very close to Shoreditch center, which has some amazing bars and great nightlife. I would recommend and stay here again.

I was very impressed with the cleanliness and location of this accommodation. The room was warm and clean, quiet location and nice shared bathrooms. Would definitely recommend after a long flight. Easy to get into London with a mini can stop at the top of the street. Highly recommend.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kandara Guest House. My husband and I and our two university-age children were very comfortable in our "family room." Never had to wait for a bathroom, and always found them to be quite clean. Enjoyed the daily cooked-to-order breakfast. Mrs. Harmon helped us figure out how to use the public transportation, and she made very... More

If, like me, you are drawn to the craziness of London's pulsing attractions but dearly need a quiet get-away afterwards, then Kandara Guest House is a great option. Not luxurious with shared bath and toilet down the hall but ever so quiet and safe. A cook prepares your breakfast as you wish and sometimes she's humming a tune while she's... More

Thank you for your review. It is always a pleasure to have a guest return to stay with us. Almost half our trade is made up of returning guests! As your review states, our bathrooms are shared. We do not have any ensuite (private) facilities. However, we do have 5 bathrooms (each with shower and toilet) plus 1 extra toilet... More
