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

This privately run B&B is excellent. The proprietor Mr Hesp (Billy) is a great host who cannot do enough for you, the food is excellent and if you want to stay somewhere welcoming, warm and friendly, this is the place to be.

This B&B has 3 stars and doesn't live up to it's expectations. The roomsize was fine, but there had not been dusted for at least a month! The nightstands, the saucers of the teacups, everything was covered with a thick layer of dust. Because it was very busy in town because of Easter we didn't want to look for another... More

My two friends and I had a lovely time here. We were in Buxton for the day and one night as we were attending a wedding. We were delighted to find somewhere to stay that was so nice yet very reasonable. The owner, Billy, is a wonderful man - so helpful and friendly. We had no idea about transport to... More

Very helpful when booking and a friendly welcome on arrival. Rooms were spot on. Bill offered us helpful local advice for dining out in Buxton. Breakfast was very nice and we were asked our preferred time. Excellent customer service & value. Many thanks.

Four of us stayed in Compton House for 3 nights. We can highly recommend this B&B to anyone. Bill, Clare and Marianne were really friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was excellent. Easy parking on the road outside, close to town centre. Keep up the good work, and thank you again! The Collins family

This b&b really needs a website! It's a beautiful building in a quiet setting 5 mins walk from the centre of Buxton. I had a wonderful warm welcome from Bill and a beautiful double room at the front of the building with a bay window. The room had beautiful antique furniture which was a real surprise. The breakfast was fantastic... More

This place needs a decent website to show it off a little more....or perhaps the old world approach is part of the charm. The rooms are very clean and adequate for a family. The hosts are very welcoming. The breakfast is traditional and tasty.
