“A lovely place to relax - would definitely come again”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Our first time at Sonachan House - had read good plaudits online - all are well deserved! Fantastic hosts - very accomodating. The rooms were clean and ensuite facilities very good - lovely hot showers. Parking wasn't a problem, there were spaces round the back and in front of the hotel. Breakfast included a good selection: fruit juices, cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit salad and a quality cooked meal from the menu.
The location was very handy - 10 minute drive to the big Morrissons supermarket & petrol station and about 5-10minutes walk to Paignton town centre and the sea front. (Note - walk back was a little bit longer due to coming back up the hill - good exercise though).
All in all - enjoyed a wonderful 3 nights stay there - a good quality B&B.

Wonderful hosts with a beautiful and clean environment.
Best breakfast we've ever eaten at a b&b with a wide choice of options.
It is a walk up the hill but the views are stunning.
will definatly return.

The service was great, the owners were so friendly and they made us feel at home. The food was cooked to a very high standard and the menu had a great selection of breakfast options. The room was very clean and the bed was so comfy, perfect mattress for my back :D My partner and I will definitely return to this B&B again when we visit Paignton :D

The title says it all. Quality Bed and Breakfast for either the travelling business man or holiday maker. My hosts were attentive and very informative without being to familiar.The house was spotless, comfortable and nicely appointed.

Just a short mid-week break, hadn't read any reviews about Sonachan House but weren't we lucky to find such a welcoming place?! The accommodation is comfortable and spotlessly clean.The owners are lovely - within minutes we felt as if we had known them for years. The location is good, albeit up a fairly steep hill, within easy walking distance to the town and Bus/Train station. We would be happy to recommend to friends and family.

We stayed there one night and let me tell you we wished we could stay for at least a week. It was clean, the hosts were amazingly welcome. There were five of us, my mother and my three children and they had a commodious, clean, and comfortable space that had plenty of room for all of us. Highly recommended!!
