We stayed at Nick's Cove for one night while driving down Highway One on a road trip to San Francisco on a friend's recommendation and we fell in love with it on first sight. The room was brilliant – although the fact that I insisted on lighting the wood-burning stove in May meant that it was so hot we could hardly breathe. Dinner was delicious and while I normally think cooking oysters is a waste of a good oyster the oyster Nick-o-fellers were sublime. And the barman made us some of the best Negronis we have ever had. We will definitely be back. I have subtracted one star, however, as the receptionist was incredibly crabby in the morning when we inquired where are breakfast had got to. They may well have been busy but that is not our problem and a polite inquiry does not warrant a frankly impolite response. This in no way spoilt our stay but it was unnecessary and foolish – especially from a mature woman who should know better.
