We had two nights at Dr Syn's. As ever I checked Trip Advisor beforehand, but somehow I just can't bring myself to agree with all the rave reviews. I phoned to book and Debbie asked that I send an e-mail (which I did immediately) and she would reply in confirmation (which she didn't). On booking I asked if we could have an evening meal, and Debbie said no, as they were going away. When we arrived there was a meal cooking for others but Debbie advised us to go to the Ocean Inn. We did -it was a standard and reasonable fish and chips accompanied by v.loud juke box. Throughout our stay the landlady seemed pushed and hardly passed the time of day with us. She wasn't unfriendly, just dissinterested.
We had the Captain Clegg room. It is very small about 30cm between both sides of the narrow double bed and the walls. The shower is adequate (not power). The lighting was poor (only one bedside lamp). As others have said breakfast is cooked to order and coffee is good. But cereals are the cheapest supermarket type. I have to be fair. It is convenient for the sea front and local shops (Tesco express), close to the railway and there is easy off street parking. The place was clean and everything was 'in place' but I felt that this was a B&B stuck in the 1960s and not of the standard that we should be getting today.
