We are just back from spending a night in Cryans. When booking we booked into the old part of the B&B as it was half the price of the new hotel. Even at half the price it was way too expensive for the standard of accommodation (€70 per room).
The rooms were small rickety and grubby. There is no en-suite in the old section with 6-7 double rooms sharing one shower and toilet which were in need of repair. The toilet seat went from being attached to on the floor during our stay (nothing to do with us), the shower was filthy and a barely a dribble of water coming out. The smell of the rooms and hall way was vile, stale and disgusting. The whole place could do with a good clean!
Breakfast was served in the new part of the hotel, while breakfast itself was alright the service was slow and unhelpful. Even in the new hotel section the toilets were still in need of cleaning from the night before, no toilet paper, towels strewn about. The dining room also had a distinct smell of sewage; we wondered whether that was as a result of the waterfront setting or general need for a clean.
All in all I would never recommend staying in the old part of the hotel and would probably not stay in the new section either.
