this was two night business trip. There was a very friendly warm welcome, the room was clean and well appointed breakfast excellent, a bar too and you are welcome to order your takeaway in to eat in the dining room which i did. I would like to stay again for leisure next time.

Our accommodation was clean, modern and comfortable, the breakfast was excellent and the property is ideally situated, being about a 7 minute walk downhill to the sea. The town can be reached within 15 minutes. We consider this hotel to be excellent value for money. The only small problem was that the wi fi took too long to connect, so... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us but sad that you didn't tell us about the wi-fi problem - we may have been able to solve it while you were here. Hope it hasn't put you off and you come back and see us another time. More

Couldn't fault it. Spotless room, in fact everywhere was spotless. We were made to feel very welcome. They could have scrimped on the breakfast but not at all. Lots of everything, proper fresh fruit salad, piping hot coffee and I chose poached egg on a muffin with spinach and Hollandaise sauce. I don't think I've ever had a poached egg... More

We only stayed one night in a family room and from what I saw I thought it was lovely. There are lots of nice little touches at Sonachan House, like the buckets and spades you can borrow to go to the beach, or the little chocolates on your pillow. The place was immaculately clean but mostly I thought the owners... More
