Both me and my daughter were made to feel very welcome from the time we arrived until when we left. Very nice breakfast, a good size room which was spotless, including the shower and bathroom. There is just a 5 to 10 minute walk to the seafront and onto the pier which was very handy for my 9 year old...

We have stayed at this hotel for many years and Tony and Julie continue to provide a high standard of accommodation at a great price. The hotel is ideally located for nearby beaches and walks along the coast. There is an abundance of restaurants nearby.

This time was a last minute one night stay for us. Having stayed before and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the Sonachan House, we hoped they would be open to just the one night stay! From the booking, receiving confirmation to the welcome when we arrived....The Sonachan House did not fail to deliver! Tony and Julie were as welcoming as before,...

Lovely B & B, so clean and bright, and the owners are very friendly. Although our room could have been a little bigger, it was very comfortable with tea making facilities. Julie and Tony are very approachable if you need help with any aspect of your stay.

This was our second visit. We received a warm welcome, our room was spotlessly clean again and comfortable. The breakfasts were great, would recommend the bacon sandwich before walking the coastal path to Brixham. Would go back
