It's difficult to think of anything else that Chris could do to make our stay more comfortable. The room and bathroom were really well appointed, and all communications etc were really efficient. We were sorry not to meet him and to taste one of his legendary breakfasts - we'll just have to go back!

Really comfortable and reasonably priced. Manager was friendly with lots of good suggestions of places to go. This was recommended to me as the best breakfast going and it didn't disappoint. Overall outstanding and a great location to get to Windermere. Better than any other B&B we have stayed at.

Visiting the Wake the Lakes Harley rally for the 4th year we had already booked 3 nights at The Shakespeare in town, however, on arrival there we were advised that they had double booked and our room was already occupied. Locals suggested The Sonata and luckily for us Chris had a room available for that night (Thursday 2nd July). We... More

We stayed 2 nights, 29 June to 1 July. Sonata is definitely the best B&B we have stayed in. Our host Chris made us welcome right from the start. Attention to detail was excellent, the room was very good with a wide range of teas coffees etc also there was a selection of bottled water. The en-suite was excellent, a... More

We spent one night here whilst visiting for a wedding. We had previously stayed at a local chain- hotel but were really pleased on this occasion we couldn't get a room there and were recommended Sonata. The proprieter made special arrangements for us to arrive early to be ready for the wedding, and ensured we had all the information we... More

Warm, friendly, and informative host who was always ready to help. The room was very nice and comfortable. Breakfast was fine. The location was excellent. It would have been nice to have had dedicated parking, but we found street parking pretty close by. Really, you can't go wrong staying here. In fact, we spontaneously decided to stay an extra night.

I have been on holiday in Yorkshire and Cumbria and stayed at a variety of bed and breakfast places. Sonata was far and away the best. Warm welcome, with lots of information about the area. The room was spacious and and very clean. The en-suite again was spacious, with a good shower and plenty of bathing and body care products.... More

We stayed here last Friday - our second visit to the Sonata Guest House. We honestly would never stay anywhere else. Inoka and Chris could not be more welcoming and the attention to detail really stands out. Beautiful room and an amazing breakfast. We highly recommend this B & B (and frequently do to anyone we know that is travelling... More

We stayed for only one night and would have happily spent the week. Communication before we arrived was first class, we received details of parking, recommended restraunts and details of free use of a local spa during our stay. We were greeted in a pleasant and professional manner on arrival and were promptly issued with a parking permit (we were... More
