We stayed in the Northern Suite - was quite surprised to find a full-sized jacuzzi in the bedroom and a walk in wardrobe complete with a fridge. The breakfast was very good as well and the staff friendly and welcoming. It was described on our itinerary as an Inn. It isn't as it has neither bar nor restaurant but is... More

The location is approximately a 15 minute walk from downtown. Having stayed downtown as well, I preferred this location - good to walk off the deep fried dinner or beer you just had. Our room was well appointed, online photos did not do it justice at all - I was pleasantly surprised. Baffin Suite had two rooms large bedroom with... More

The rooms at both compton house and leaside manor are beautiful. We stayed in the Pippy Suite and Baffin room this time. The Pippy Suite was incredible, the bed was wonderful and we enjoyed wine in front of the fireplace. No words to describe... Night 2 in the Baffin suite, modern and gorgeous. The 2 person tub in this room... More

1st time in NFL and staying at Compton House. It's is so beautiful. 1st class staff, decor, food, everything about this place took my breath away. It was our last stop before coming home.

We took the only room with two beds. Very clean and well run place. The beds could have been softer, but the beds in the other rooms were more comfortable. The breakfasts were wonderful - freshly prepared with tasty muffins and eggs any way you like. Would choose this place whenever we go back.

I stayed in the Northern Suite for 4 days. The rooms are beautiful all with jacuzzi baths. Each morning I had a lovely phone call inquiring if I would like breakfast and would I like it brought up... I would highly recommend it! St. John's is a 20 minute walk away down a busy road, which might not suit all... More

We were in the Partridgeberry room. The room was fairly large and nicely decorated. The bathroom was quite small. We kept the air conditioner on and never were disturbed by hall noise. The staff were very kind and charming. Breakfast was a cooked option, fresh fruit and juice and cold cereal. We had an early flight and they left us... More

Stayed five nights in the Baffin Suite, which was very comfortable, newly renovated and quiet. Some of the smaller rooms which open directly on to the hallways, might not be as quiet. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, breakfast quite good. Located just a little too far from the centre for us, especially if it is raining, so we... More
