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

A great little B and B in Paignton - a really good location. I went for a weekend away with my dad just as a little break and the B and B was just perfect - lovely breakfast, really friendly, exceptionally clean and nothing but accommodating - would highly recommended to anyone!

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

For the second time our group descended on the Sonachan and what a pleasure it was to stay there again. Spotlessly clean, a warm welcome and a great breakfast which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you again, Julie and Tony. We ventured out for the evenings and enjoyed wonderful meals at the Manor Inn (Galmpton), East in the West (Paignton)... More

I stayed at Sonachan House for 3 nights March 30th to April 2nd 2015. I was visiting the area for a karate course at the local leisure centre. The single room had a double bed which was a great bonus. It would appear the bathroom had recently been totally replaced with a brand new excellent quality suite. The room itself... More

Booked 1 night but stayed 2 nights !! Julie and Tony are the perfect hosts. We always struggle to find quality accommodation with having 3 children and they were able to provide a room with 3 single beds. The cleanliness was excellent and attention to detail was fabulous. The breakfast was freshly home cooked and we will be returning again... More

Stayed for 1 night as part of a business trip. Room and whole of public areas are spotlessly clean. Bathroom sparkling and warm. Comfortable bed. Tea and coffee and water all set up in room. Breakfast served with huge choice. Individually cooked to your requirements. Bar stocked with everything you ask for. Both of the owners there of an evening... More

We have stayed at Sonachan House quite a few times, right from the very start you feel very welcome with a lovely cup of tea on arrival! Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are fantastic, breakfast is amazing. There is ample parking in and around the guest house. It is situated in the perfect place, very close to Goodrington... More
