“2 nights at Sonachan...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Booked direct from Paignton web site. Appeared a friendly establishment and had the Twin room i needed at short notice so booked it.

Arrived at 14:30 and was warmly welcomed and given a pot of tea and biscuits and ushered into the garden with some lovely decking where i and my son (13yr old) could relax after travelling and wandering around Paignton.

Shown to room which was fine and had all the usual amenities.

Good choice for breakfast next day. All very good. Came back later that afternoon and wandered down to the bar with son for a drink. Ended up playing cards with the owner and her daughter and a couple of other guests. So a fun evening had by all. Good Guinness too!

Would strongly recommend.

My Mum and I stayed here for 7 nights. Very warm and welcoming when we arrived. The rooms were very clean and decorated to a high standard. Brilliant breakfast with lots of choice, I can recommend the salmon and scrambled eggs on toast!
The garden is fantastic, it has decking!! We love decking.
The best thing is you are free to come and go as you please and nothing is too much trouble for Tony and Julie or Eleanor.
All in all a brilliant B&B.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good

We had a family room which was plenty big enough for the 4 of us. Great spot close enough to town and the beach and a very easy drive to the zoo and waterpark. Really good and friendly service and the kids particularly enjoyed the guinea pigs in the garden. Excellent breakfast and very reasonable priced.
