Compton House proved to be a fantastic venue for our weekend conference. The guest rooms were beautiful and comfortable with heated floors in some of the bathrooms. The conference room was spacious with lots of light and character. It was quiet and peaceful. My contact, Colleen, genuinely cared about us and our needs. I would highly recommend Compton House for... More

We stayed here for two nights in August. The night before our wedding and the night of. We arrived early and were shown to our room with no wait. I booked the Avalon suite and it was beautiful. It was the perfect suite for having some wedding pictures taken in. Breakfast was great and the hotel was very quiet. Would... More

Not happy with this at all. Seemed more like a boarding house. No one on site overnight. Arrived at 8:00 pm. When I phoned about getting a coffee, I was told to go to Coffee shop up the street. Bathroom was mouldy, nothing in the fridge to even purchase.

Unfortunate to hear that you were not happy with your stay. Know that while a staff member wasn't onsite after 8pm, one of us are always available if needed. We do have a coffee & tea available in the dining room around the clock for guests - unfortunately one of our new staff members had not been privy to this... More

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
