Our room was immaculate with a nice modern bathroom and pretty views. Breakfast was lush and had been perfectly catered to my gluten free diet! Also, loved the little guinea pigs in the garden. Would definitely stay again.

What a treat to say at this lovely B&B in Paington. Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely hosts who provided a great service and more! Thanks for the helpful directions folks. Wonderful breakfasts, delightful room, warm and comfortable. Would love to go again but probably won't as we live in NZ. THANKS.

I stayed at the Sonachan early September with two girlfriends, what a lovely find! The rooms were absolutely spotless, very comfortable and exceptional value for money. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. . The Sonachan is well situated in a nice quiet location but within walking distance of the town, beach and harbour. Julie and Tony were very friendly...
