In our view, it was the best house in the town - a home full of passion with personality to match. Joanie, Laura & family rescued us and opened their door at very short notice (tourist board mix up). They then kept an eye out to make sure we were as comfortable as we could be. We enjoyed pre-festival drinks,... More

A welcoming b/b on a rather grand scale. We had the Red Poppy room which was beautifully furnish and in keeping with name, the theme was Red Poppies. We virtually had the place to ourselves, there are only three double letting room, one being a family room. There is quite a large indoor heated swimming pool which you can use... More

The three of us stayed at Sonas House for our first few days on Mull in early August and had a family annex room above the garage. It's clean & well equipped with fridge, microwave, TV, DVD player (a selection of DVDs is available in the main house to borrow), cutlery, plates & mugs. The kids shared the super-kingsize bed...

We were in the Blue Poppy room upstairs and enjoyed the outlook.. the room is spacious and well fitted out.. with a lovely bathroom. The breakfasts are good. Our only quibble was the poor wifi reception as we needed to use the internet frequently.. We were told to sit on a lounge chair downstairs, but reception was poor and very... More

We were 4 retired guys on a 'round-Scotland' trip bagging distilleries and lighthouses, and had the distinct pleasure of staying at Sonas House for 3 nights in June. We were near the end of our trip, having experienced quite a variety of B & Bs through Speyside, Orkney, Skye and such. Sonas House was definitely the highlight accommodation of our... More

Ok - Sonas house is not cheap: But if you are choosing between a dull hotel experience and the warmth, comfort and understated luxury of a place with discreet accommodation, an indoor pool and exercise bike, delicious breakfast and wonderful hospitality with a personalised touch: go for the latter at Sonas House. We wanted a romantic short break, didn't want... More

Sonas House in situated on the top of the hill in Tobermory by the golf course. The walk into town would be about 15 minutes but as it would be up hill on the return we opted to drive into Tobermory where there was no problem parking. We stayed in the Red Poppy Room which is on the ground floor... More

We spent 4 nights at Sonas House, staying in the self-contained studio. We were quite knackered so opted for the 'no breakfast' option so we could sleep in in the morning, which ended up being lucky as we slept like logs - it was so quiet and the bed so comfy! We absolutely loved our stay. Laura MacKay was extremely... More
