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

Absolutely charming bed & breakfast. Rooms are beautiful and well appointed.Well located. Everything is very clean. Service is impeccable and very friendly. Gloria, the innkeeper is wonderful. Also met the owner and he was very nice. Breakfasts are wonderful. Everything is in walking distance from the inn.

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.

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

My husband & I spent a wonderful weekend at the Inn. Gloria is a fabulous innkeeper, very welcoming, very helpful. The location is excellent, within easy walking distance to the center of Newburyport or down to the water. We stayed in suite #1 which was absolutely lovely. We plan to visit again in the fall. I highly recommend this inn.... More

Spent the night in the heart of Newburyport. Great location, super comfortable suites, the innkeeper, Gloria, couldn't have been a better host. Highly recommend the Inn for a night or a week. Thanks again for the wonderful stay

My husband and I stayed here for a night to celebrate our anniversary. Very comfortable, quiet, clean and quaint. A warm welcome from Gloria, the inn keeper. Great breakfast. I wish our stay was longer and we will definitely return...hopefully soon.

We have stayed twice at the Compass Rose. Once in April and once in November. It is on a quiet street a short walk to the center of Newburyport. It’s new construction with an antique feel. It has three floors and five spacious suites (suites, not rooms). We stayed in Suite 3 and Suite 4. The suites were almost identical,... More
