We were welcomed by Tony, who gave a lot of hints and tips about the area. The room (number 10) was very good, clean and tidy with views across the bay . There is a good choice available for breakfast and this was very tasty. There is a small patio area outside which is nice for a drink from the... More

We stayed four nights, a family of five (two adults, three children ages 10-16). Our room was fantastic, five beds and enough space not to feel crowded. It was a decorated attic room with view from two roof windows that provided ventilation (and sea gull song...). The bathroom was shower only, but that suited us fine. Everything was clean and...

Had a lovely 2 day stay here, booked at the last minute. Very professional welcome from Tony, who kindly served me tea and biscuits, great after a long journey. I was really pleased with the single room which actually had a double bed and 4 pillows - all to myself. Bliss. Beautiful shower room and thoughtfully provided toiletries. Good quality... More

We have just got back from a 3 night stay at Sonachan House. The owners were very friendly and helpful. They were happy to give us information and directions. The room was spotless, our sheets and towels were changed every day which was a nice surprise. There is a bar and a lounge to chill out in and the breakfast... More

We stayed for a couple of nights after a last minute booking. Saw the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and booked up on the spur of the moment. So glad that we did !

We booked Sonachan House as a very last minute booking. On our very late arrival Julie could not have been more welcoming. Our room was spacious and very clean.
