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

In September my wife and I stayed again at the Sonachon guest house in Paignton. The room we had was a superior double and was very classy and comfortable. There are very few guest houses we have stayed in in the past where everything is top quality. No paint chipped off, bathroom fittings loose, rusty, or missing, etc, etc. Also... More

I only stayed one night but would have been very happy to stay longer. Can't fault this place at all. The hosts were very friendly, accommodation was excellent and they served a great breakfast. Nice quiet location but not too far from the beach.

My wife and I plus our 3 children stayed here for a week in August, we were welcomed by Julie with a cup of coffee and squash for the kids, a nice change from the sometimes rushed check-ins experienced at other establishments. The room was very good, with a double bed and 3 singles, super clean, immaculate bedding and a... More

I stayed at Sonachan House so I could visit friends nearby. A very good location to where I wanted to go. I really enjoyed the cooked breakfast and the staff were very helpful as this was my first trip away on my own.
