The owners/operators of Miners on Sea were the epitome of small town hospitality. We were visiting friends in Granity, went for a glass of wine and ended up spending New Years eve with them. They also suggested interesting places to visit in the area. Our friends have stayed in

This person obviously needs a reality check. I remember this "huffy" person who clearly has a problem with memory recall and their disposition apart from anything else. When we are flat out we try to always inform customers of wait time so that they are not disappointed and have the option of not waiting if they wish. I would have thought that we would be in a better position to know what is happening in the cafe/restaurant then this person. Sometimes it is simply is not possible to win with some people. Why not just enjoy your holiday.

"Pod B is next to the water pump which kicks in whenever water is required so probably not good for a light sleeper"
"Rooms are quiet, spacious with comfortable beds!"
"The apartment rooms all face the sea and the four pods are a little way back. I never heard any traffic."
"Go for a chalet so you have beachfront views."
"Try and get the units at the front facing the beach."
