We traveled to Newbury Port for our wedding... and stayed at the Compass Rose. They were WONDERFUL! The inn is beautiful... the breakfast was DELISH! and the manager, Cindy, went above and beyond to help us settle in... We couldn't have felt more supported getting ready for our big day! If you are in the area- it is a perfect... More

This inn is wonderful! From the moment we arrived we understood why it has received so many great reviews! We were greeted warmly and were happily checked into Suite 5 on the third floor. The room was spacious and laid out perfectly, full of light and very nicely decorated. The bathroom had a large sink and a spacious shower. Everything... More

We stayed for three nights at the Compass Rose Inn and could not have chosen a better hotel for the second stage of our trip to the United States. After three nights in a cramped New York bedroom our suite at Newburyport was spacious, comfortable, spotlessly clean, attractively decorated and well appointed with Molton Brown toiletries and good tea and...

What a wonderful B&B!! We were moving out of the area and needed to stay one final evening. We were exhausted, but Gloria made sure our stay was perfect! She was so helpful and had breakfast waiting for us in the morning. The B&B is just beautiful, my husband loved it and stated that it was like staying at his... More

We arrived at the inn on Easter Sunday. We arrived after the innkeeper had left for the day to spend time with her family. Gloria was more than helpful in letting us arrive later to the inn. When we arrived we were pleasantly greeted by a large spacious room (3)! Everything was super clean, organized and comfortable. Although we didn't... More

Stayed one night on a last minute getaway. It was lovely, comfortable, clean, and an excellent location. Gloria made us feel most welcome. The inn is within walking distance downtown shopping, and parking is free at the inn spots.

Just left the Inn- my fifth visit in the past 8 years. Great as always. There are two possibly three places to stay in downtown Newburyport. I have stayed in them a few times each and the Compass Rose has the best rooms and perfect location. The only downside to the Inn is the number of rooms.... only 10 and... More

I can't say enough about this inn. Everything was at the highest level. We were there during -10 weather. What a beautiful sanctuary, complete with a real fire. The cupola offered a great view and nice place to have a drink. Next time we will stay for 2 nights.
