I haven't been to London in over 20 years and wanted to share a B & B experience with my 16 year old daughter. She LOVED it! A British aquaintance recommended Angel/Islington and I'm glad she did!

Shared bathrooms but no problems with that. What more can I say? Oh! tasty, well cooked breakfast in a pleasant dining room opening out onto the garden. We had a lovely stay with... More

The Kandara Guesthouse, near Angel tube station and many busstops, turned out to be a very good find for us. We, two adults and two 14-year olds, had a nice room in the basement of the house with a bathroom in the corridor. Everything is spotlessly clean, service is very friendly and we loved the freshly cooked breakfasts with a... More

Arriving in Islington almost feels like being home when staying at Kandara Guest House in Ockendon Road. Very friendly atmosphere. Room was comfy and clean. Cooked breakfast is excellent. We'll keep returning to Ockendon Road.
