Ryan's Hotel Review
With framed fishing ties and specimen fish given pride of place on the lobby wall, you know you are in a hostelry favored by anglers. But you don't have to be a fisherman to recognize that Ryan's—a clean and comfortable, affordably priced, and totally devoid of frills hotel—is a total catch. Guest rooms above the pub and bistro are mostly sunny, reasonably sized for the price, and simply decorated with white furniture, plain walls and carpets, and colorful quilted bedspreads. The staff are friendly and informal, and you can hone your dart-playing skills in the lively Crowe's Nest Pub, which has live music year-round. It even has its own bus stop.
