A night after Thriller
We both enjoyed our stay at the Guest House. The room had all the amenities we required, slight issue with the shower space but that was perhaps down to our size than the cubicle itself. Breakfast was lovely and staff were very attentive. Will definitely use the Ben Doran again, thanks
