We stayed for one night in "the best room in the house". It was well equipped and spacious with a comfortable bed (although we would have liked more pillows). Bill is an excellent host, full of local knowledge, and cooks a delicious breakfast. It's a great location, walking distance to the sights, pubs and the shops. Had a great visit... More

We stayed at Compton Guest House for 5 nights. When we arrived we were just shown to our room and not given any information about the town and local area. Whilst we were having breakfast the bed would be made. The cups we had used for drinks were just rinsed and still remained stained, so we ended up having to... More

We didn't actually stay at Compton Guest House but Bill showed us around the guest house and it was very well presented and looked very comfortable. My review is only to thank Bill for lending us his bikes for the day so we were able to cycle the Monsal Trail (which is fantastic by the way) and to say how... More

I couldn't have really asked for more! Great location, nice big spacious room, pretty much spotlessly clean & the breakfast was delish! B&Bs can be a bit hit and miss sometimes, but this was spot on, definitely recommended!

A few weeks back a myself and a couple of friends went to Buxton for a relaxing weekend away. We stayed at Compton guest house and what a lovely experience it was, a home away from home. The people were friendly and welcoming, it was clean and tidy and it was only a short walk away from the town centre.... More

Compton House suited us perfectly for our short stay in Buxton. Well priced with a warm welcome and terrific cooked breakfast. Our room was nice and big and comfortable. Thank you Billy and staff for everything.

The welcome was warm and the staff friendly. Admittedly, the accommodation is somewhat dated, but very clean and in the context of £35 for single occupancy of a big room at the front (including breakfast) very good value indeed. If you're after a boutique hotel, look elsewhere. This is basic good value accommodation that is well located for the town.

Booked because dog friendly. We had to phone to let the owner know we would be later than we had agreed, but this was not a problem. When shown to our room (3), it was lovely. Front bay window with 2 comfortable arm chairs and plenty of room for us to put our dog bed. Room and bathroom were spotless.... More
