“Nice stay whilst on a training course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

I was on a four day course in Islington and stayed at the Kandara guest house, the owners and their family were very friendly, the Band B was in a quiet road close to the venue where my training course was - futures for children. it was also close to some lovely shops and restaurants near the Angel. the breakfasts were cooked fresh and the rooms were clean, tidy and pleasantly decorated. I had three really good nights sleep - thank you and see you again

an extra incentive is that if you are a returning customer you get a discount - now thats good customer relations

It is always pleasant to arrive at Kandara... a warm welcome, lovely rooms and a quiet environment makes it the perfect base for a stay in London!! - just returned from my fifth stay, and no doubt: I will return!

Kind and welcoming owner, very nice house, immaculately clean
everywhere. Pretty bedroom at the back, overlooking the gardens, quite quiet for London, comfy bed, great night's sleep. 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 absolutely no worries or complaints, we walked into the town and took the bus back. Had great fun and will definitely return. Thanks very much Avril and co!

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 lot of choices, even for vegetarians, fresh fruit and good coffee!
There are many good restaurants in Islington and a welcoming pub just around the corner. We will be back!

We stayed friday to sunday (couple and 5-year old boy) and found the place very nice. It was easy to get to with public transport and the staff were very friendly.
Bathrooms and toilets are outside the room, but nice and clean.
The cooked english breakfast is also very good and the service was always friendly.
Nice quiet neighborhood, with several buslines going directly to central London.

What a gem! Lovely and clean, breakfast superb in a very nice spot overlooking the garden and patio. Would defianetly use again. Proprietors very friendly and very clean. Parking was very easy on the street outside the guesthouse and free after 2pm at the weekend
We used Kandara as we were visiting friends nearby but you could use as a base for anywhere in London. Busses to the center of London are just at the end of the street and are very frequent.
