A lovely warm welcome from Tony on arrival which made us feel at home straight away. Sonachan House was spotlessly clean and the room was excellent (comfy bed too). Nicely stocked bar with a cracking local ale which went down well. Great location with just a short walk into Paignton town one way or Goodrington sands the other way. Breakfasts...
