We had a lovely time and loved our room it had lovely views and was very spacious. Breakfast was beautiful and you could tell no expense had been spared in the quality of the products.

We stayed at Sonachan House for 7 nights and the owners Julie and Tony were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The house itself is big and sits on an incline. It is well situated, taking 10 minutes or so to the main Paignton beach (down a hill) and on the other side on Goodrington beach it took... More

Great family run guest house, warm and friendly people. This is an ideal location for all of Torbay, great for families. The guest house itself has lots of information about places to visit, things to see and free to borrow bucket and spades!

We were very warmly welcomed on arrival. The rooms were very clean. Breakfast is generous and very tasty. Parking at the back. We were given 2 free passes to the Zoo! We only stayed a couple of nights and didn't take advantage of the available facilities; bar, lounge, garden table. We definitely recommend!

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.
