When we arrived we were warmly welcomed and offered coffee and tea, we immediately felt at home. No problems parking either on the road or in the car park, Our rooms were nicely decorated and extremely clean (6 and 7) with everything we could have needed. Towels were nice and fluffy and beds very comfortable. The bar is well stocked... More

This being our first visit, any initial concerns we may have had were soon dispelled with a cup of tea and warm welcome from Julie. We soon settled in our room (No 10) this being extremely clean and comfortable, with a wonderful view of Paignton Pier and coastline around to Torquay. We met Tony next morning and indulged in his...

Great find - good value, very friendly owners and facilities that are as described. Reliable wifi - and all very clean, with nice touches. The breakfast was excellent - freshly cooked to order with a good choice of alternatives if you didn't want full English.

Very clean, very friendly and just a real pleasant stay!! I was in the area on business but this location would be excellent for a short break or holiday. The breakfast was amazing too. Thank you for your hospitality.

Took our children of 14, 10 and 8 for a couple of nights here, last minute booking but did a good bit of research on here first. I agree with the excellent reviews; Sonachan House is extremely clean and well maintained, efficiently run and friendly. We all thought the beds were really comfy, the en suite shower room was spotless... More

Very helpful hosts,clean rooms and great breakfast within easy walking distance of town centre. We chose this accomadation as it was reasonably priced and well-situated for a trip on the steam railway to Dartmouth. Staff were very friendly when we rang to book and gave useful directions in a follow-up email.

This my 14th annual trip to Sonachan House. Once again Julie, Tony and Elinor have made our 5 days so special. It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary and they provided us with a party and cake and helped us along with the rest of our party to celebrate and have a fantastic time. We have already booked for next year... More
