We stayed here just the one night and couldn't believe the exceptionally high standard for a guest house. We've never had this level of cleanliness and service in a 5 star hotel. We stayed in Room 4 an upgraded room on the top floor. The room itself wasn't large but it had everything you would want - bottles of still... More

The owners of Sonata are really lovely, very welcoming and informative without being over bearing. The room was really clean with plenty of treats and lovely toiletries, fluffy bath robes, there were even slippers available! The furniture was in excellent condition and quite modern and the light fittings were all chrome. The breakfast was very tasty and beautifully cooked. We... More

A lovely friendly couple, who made us feel very welcome. We booked the upgraded, double en-suite room ( room 4 ) and we were not disappointed. Furnished and decorated to a very high standard. The attention to detail is to be commended. They had thought of everything and more than you could wish for to make our stay perfect. One... More

Superb B&B with the extra touches that make such a positive difference. Chris and Inoka were the perfect hosts. Room/bathroom contained a plethora of amenities - from choc chip cookies and sparkling mineral water to quality lotions and toiletries. Breakfast was superb, cooked to order and served with a smile. Additional cereals, fruits, juices and yogurts completed a substantial start... More

Stayed just a single night in this fantastic b&b as an alternative to a soul less Premier Inn and was really pleased with my choice. My room on the top floor was a home from home with really nice, modern decor and was cleaner than I've ever seen any room before. So clean in fact that I actively tried, without... More

Owned by a lovely couple. Inoka greeted us and showed us to our room, and offered my partner honey for her tickly cough. Everything you needed was available in both the bedroom and bathroom, including extras for several possible eventualities. The bed was probably the most comfortable we'd ever slept in. Chris provided us with a beautifully presented and very... More
