Stayed 3 nights at this B&B and was truly spoiled by the accommodations and staff. We stayed in the Baffin suite which is the largest suite and very comfortable for a family of 3. Beautiful red and grey decor throughout with a jacuzzi tub in the middle of the room. Unfortunately we didn't get to experience the heated floor in... More

This property is located in a quiet residential area with it's own parking and is only minutes from downtown. Our room had all the amenities one would expect and we both had a relaxing nights sleep. The breakfast the next morning was very good and the staff were very pleasant and easy to talk to. We would stay again if... More

We stayed in Compton House, the second building. Our visit was 4 nights in the Pippy Suite. Good things: very large room that had a sofa and chair, extremely comfortable bed, jacuzzi tub which we did not use but there was always a good supply of towels. Bad things: we found out why the air conditioner was on, set at... More

We began our trip at Compton House and ended it here. The first night we had a suite on the 3rd floor. It was okay. I believe it was called the Northern suite. We were supposed to end our trip in that suite but I asked to be changed to a room on the first floor since my husband has... More

This is a very nice suite, comfortable King size bed, small kitchen area with a full size coffee maker. The only problem we had was low water pressure in the shower. We asked the manager and a maintenance guy to repair but their efforts yielded no results. It looks like water is flowing when you just look at the shower... More

We stayed there a few nights on our trip through Newfoundland. We arrived late at night, so we found a message in the mailbox and could easily get to our room. Breakfast was delicious every day. Special thanks to Lisa! She gave us her number and organized a friend of hers, so that we could hike a long trail and... More

Recently booked the Avalon Suite with Leaside/Compton House. We couldn't have chosen a better location for our graduation photographs. The staff were fabulous, and while we booked the suite with the intentions of working - they made us feel so welcome and relaxed that we spent more time enjoying the room and property, than we did working! Highly recommend this... More

I have stayed at Leaside a number of times, and have always walked away overly satisfied - thrilled even, so when I booked my most recent stay I decided to switch it up to Compton House and the Beautiful Blueberry Suite; needless to say I was not disappointed. The service was fantastic , and breakfast could not have been better... More
