Everything is geared to make the guests feel at home: the garden at the back for relaxation among the flowers, the front room, cozy and a good place to meet the other guests, the rooms are clean and well supplied with the comforts that make your holiday complete. What I particularly liked was the quality of the produce used for... More

A lovely warm welcome from Tony on arrival which made us feel at home straight away. Sonachan House was spotlessly clean and the room was excellent (comfy bed too). Nicely stocked bar with a cracking local ale which went down well. Great location with just a short walk into Paignton town one way or Goodrington sands the other way. Breakfasts... More

I stayed there with other family members for three nights in June 2015. The Sonachan is an inexpensive but very comfortable hotel, the proprietors are very welcoming, the breakfast is excellent and they have good parking facilities, adequate ensuite facilities and a hotel bar, useful if you've been driving until late and want a nightcap! It is located at the... More

Thank you for your review. glad you enjoyed your stay. Our breakfast orders are usually taken between 8.30 and 9.00 but there is no time limit on eating it. We do ask if guests require a different breakfast time as we are willing to accommodate most requests. 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.
