Tony & Julie are great hosts that really make you feel welcome. The hotel is situated close to Goodrington sands , the harbour & the western end of the esplanade. The steam train to Dartmouth from Paignton Station is a 10 - 15 minute walk away, as is the bus station. Breakfast was a choice of full English, Continental, cereals, fruit and juices. There is plenty to do in the area, and Tony and Julie are knowledgeable with ideas.

Room Tip: Rooms 1&2 are ground floor. Better for people with difficulty with stairs.

Had a lovely stay. Plenty of choice at breakfast. Rooms were clean and well equipped. My daughter left her phone in the room but they rang within a few hours to let us know and posted it back to us straight away. Couldn't ask for nicer people. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Paignton.

We booked a last minute 2 night break and were lucky enough to get the last room. It was very spacious, clean and the owners were very friendly and welcoming. Could not have asked for more and would highly recommend and stay again without hesitation!

Cannot recommend this little gem of a hotel highly enough! Easy to locate with plenty of private parking. We were greeted quickly by Tony who was extremely friendly and checked us in, gave us some info about the hotel, what time breakfast was served and showed us to our room. Our family room was fantastic. It was very bright and clean (throughout the hotel not just our room) and plenty of room for a family of 5. My eldest had his own room within our room which he loved. We were provided with more than enough towels for our stay, the shower room was lovely and clean and the views from our room stretched right out to torquay. The rooms were serviced daily whilst we were out replenishing the tea tray etc which was very welcomed. The wonderfully friendly Julie was in charge of the breakfast room and ran it very smoothly despite all rooms of the hotel being booked and the breakfasts being busy. She never kept us waiting for teas or coffees and Tony cooked our breakfast each morning to perfection. It was served very promptly. The food was delicious. The choice of cereals, fruit and yoghurts, and fruit teas was substantial and well maintained. The bar was well stocked in the evening and we could enjoy our drinks in the garden, in the bar or lounge or even in our rooms as our younger children were often tired after longer days. The lounge was brimming with games/books and videos to entertain the children on the couple of nights we came in early. They thoroughly enjoyed this. We absolutely loved staying at the Sonachan House and would highly recommend it. We will definitely be staying again when we're in the area. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

More like a hotel than bed and breakfast. Exceptionally clean, we had a room for 2 adults and 3 children which was much larger than any other we had stayed in before. The owners were very friendly and around when you needed them without being overbearing. Our children loved the lounge which had cupboards full of toys which catered for their different ages (2,5 and 7). So much so our son had to pried away to go out for the day. A little fairy garden and slide also appealed to the children. A reasonably priced well stocked bar and lovely breakfast. Close enough to the sea front and pier to walk to. We took the children to Brixham, Cockington and Babbacombe all within easy driving distance.
