“not 4 star”
Reviewed 23 October 2013 via mobile

met by the landlady who showed us to a spotless room with the smallest bathroom I have ever seen. Noted the many Signs with instruction were posted around the room and bathroom, ' don't shower after breakfast, ' 'keep noise down, ' etc
bouquets : breakfast substantial
owners pleasant and friendly
brickbats:
Bed had plastic undersheet just like a baby would have that made for a noisy crinkly hot night sleep.
toilet space so small we had to sit sideways on the loo to use.
scent in rooms and home overpowering.
Definately not 4 star rating for room and value however 4 star for cleanliness

It was a pleasure to be at Sonas with Lorna and Jimmy. The rooms are very nice and clean and you see the commitment to be hosts in all the caring little details. We enjoyed it very much to be guests there. The breakfast is great - as the whole accomodation is.
Yes, the bathroom is small - but it is very clean and adequate for what a bath meant to be: to have a shower - to use the toilet and afterwards wash your hands in the wash-bowl :o)

We look forward to go back to Sonas and find a little bit of peace from our stressful everyday life....

Sonas is situated within easy-walking distance of Fort Augustus on the north side of the River Oich. It is a very nice and silent B&B and there are many restaurants nearby to have dinner. The rooms at the B&B are clean, breakfast is very good and the owners are very friendly. If you have a little time on your walk along the Great Glen Way you should do a boat trip at Loch Ness. If you have to stay at Fort Augustus you should choose this B&B, I can recommend it.

At the second we arived at Sonas, we found two smiley faces: Lorna and Jimmy.
The rooms are clean and comfortable, breakfast is very good. But above all we did feel like home with friends. We highly recomand Sonas if you have to stay in the Fort Augustus area.

We stayed one night just passing through Fort Augustus we decide to stay the night. Lorna and her Husband were very welcoming when we arrived. The beds were very comfortable. The room was clean and tidy really well look after. You can see that Lorna take great pride in the running of her B&B. Breakfast was brilliant and set us up for the day.The WIFI was also a plus for planning out journey for the following day. Thanks Lorna for you hospitality.

We landed in Fort Augustus by accident--literally, having had a minor but disabling vehicle accident some 20 miles away. Happily, the ever-accommodating Scots came to the rescue; Robert at West End Garage started ringing up places and found us a room at Sonas, which proved to be a delightful "emergency" stay. The beds comfy, our host, Lorna, exceptionally accommodating (as we dragged in quite late, she immediately started phoning the pubs to find a place that would feed us...a kindness that we deeply appreciated!), and breakfast was excellent. The rooms are well appointed, beds comfy; a trifle small but so cute and comfortable that that minor aspect was not an issue. Fort Augustus is a delightful small town-not terribly touristy, with a fascinating and quite impressive lock system and a nice selection of pubs and small stores to linger in. Sonas is just a couple minutes walk from the locks and very well situated to walk about town.
