I can't say enough about the Rose Compass Inn, from the friendly attention to detail by the Innkeeper to the beautiful furnishings to the delicious breakfast, our stay was perfection. Our room was clean and comfortable. I look forward to another visit - soon!

My husband and I stayed at the Compass Rose in charming Newburyport and were extremely pleased. My sister and her husband and their adult children also rented rooms - all of which were lovely, each room had its own style but were comfortable and very clean. The bed and linens were great. The inn is modern yet has a ton... More

My husband and I took the "cook 'n stay" package a few times and enjoyed it so much, the chef was excellent and we learned a lot of wonderful cooking techniques and wonderful recipes and got to sit down to a wonderful dinner prepared by all that attended! Getting to meet new people enjoying the same interests was a good... More

My family and I recently took over the entire Compass Rose for my wedding weekend, and we had a wonderful stay. The building is relatively new, the rooms are clean and incredibly spacious, the baths feature top bath products, plenty of space, and, at least in our case, two sinks, which made getting ready for our various events very easy....

I grabbed the last available room at the Compass Rose Inn on booking.com and was looking forward to a great weekend getaway. The next day, I received a note from the Inn saying they were booked up and could not honor the reservation. Knowing mistakes happen, I was already in transit and asked for suggestions (I'd never been to Newburyport.)... More

We reserved rooms for our son's wedding. We reserved rooms here and at another inn in town. We wanted to stay here ourselves! Lovely, welcoming and perfect. Once you're parked you won't need your car all weekend. Everything Newburyport has to offer is nearby.

My husband and I stayed two nights at the Inn for an anniversary getaway in July. The location is great and parking at the Inn is very convenient. There is so much you can do within walking distance. The layout of our suite was very spacious and comfortable. Gloria is very gracious and is a wonderful Innkeeper. She also serves... More

I walked into The Compass Rose Inn to meet Gloria, the innkeeper, for a last minute request. I needed a room for a client and she pleasantly showed me Room 3. It was cozy, beautifully decorated, clean, super tidy right down to the amazing towel warmer which was on ready to fight the chill of the evening, and comfortable. It... More
