Upon booking the Kandara Guesthouse I was anxious to see the reviews as we were looking for somewhere suitable for our 6 month old baby. The reviews were true to form & it did not disappoint! Avril was very helpful on the phone and made me feel at ease (as this was the first time we had travelled with our... More

If you're looking for a quality bed and breakfast with a warm welcome and easy access to everything London has to offer then look no further than Kandara Guest House. This family run establishment is very clean and comfortable. The lack of en suite facilities really wasn't an issue as there are so many bathrooms to choose from. Breakfast was... More

If you're looking for a comfortable place to stay, just outside the tourist-laden center of London, this is it. The family owned guesthouse is located in a quiet sidestreet of Essex road. Hop on a bus around the corner and you'll be anywhere in a sec. Every morning you can get a home cooked breakfast in the lovely dining room... More

My husband and I stayed at this guesthouse for 2 weeks in February 2014 and are returning again for another stay, February 2015. We give it the highest rating. The owners were so helpful and friendly, the place was immaculate, our room cozy, breakfast abundant and delicious, and the location was great. If you're seeking good value for your money... More

Thank you for your kind review. About three quarters of our business comes from guests coming back to us or recommending us to friends and family. It is always a pleasure to welcome back guests who have stayed with us before. More

I was truly amazed at the cleanliness of this place The room and the bathrooms looked like they had never been used yet. The carpeting was spotless and the bedding and furniture were like new. I was never woken once by any other guests and never had to wait for access to the bathrooms. My one regret was never getting... More

Great Place. My brother stayed here while i slept on my mates sofas. I'm definitely booking a room for myself next time instead of couch surfing around London. I was amazed but the cleanliness and lovely decor. It reminded me of my old flat in Dublin but MUCH nicer. : )

Very comfortable and friendly guest house in this lively area. Rooms are well appointed and immaculately clean with TV and wi-fi, breakfast prepared fresh as ordered in the attractive garden-level dining room. On top of this you are only a few minutes from the 38 bus route connecting to Bloomsbury, Soho and the West End.

Guesthouse is the right word to express what it is. Room is warm, clean and a very good place to rest after a day beeing at crowded places. In front of bus 38 you will get in the centre of London and when return (tired) the busstop is in front of Ockendon Road. Then after an easy 2 minutes walk... More

Breakfast was really good too as again I was made to feel welcomed and relaxed by... More

Once again, the Kandara is a perfect place for B&B. Set in a very quiet area, but which is very convenient for central London, it is such an agreeable place to stay in. My bedroom was a nice size, the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was great - a good choice and my full English was perfectly cooked,... More
