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

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.
