We read a few reviews of a lot of B & B's but this little place stood out from the rest so we booked and arrived about tea time, the landlady showed us straight to our room with en-suite, very clean and tidy, we had some tea at the local takeaway next to the B & B it was also... More

This is how we would like every guest house to be. Well positioned, well equipped, good quality beds, very clean, excellent breakfast and attentive owner. Travelling with an elderly mother, the availability of a nice ground floor double room was essential. To have all of this in the town centre, with wifi and secure parking, makes this guest house very... More

Ashbourne is very hilly but Compton House is on the level and right on the high street. Next door to Sainsbury's and opposite a petrol station, so you can stock up for trips. Also lots of takeaways and cafes in the street. Jane is very knowledgeable about the area and has a good supply of street maps. She also provides... More

My wife and I stayed in Compton House from 13 to 17 July this year. We had a lovely double room at the back of the property on the ground floor, as my wife has a slight walking difficulty. The full English breakfast was " full", with an added "Derbyshire oatcake", which I had never tasted before. Nothing was too... More

We stayed at the Compton House as a last minute decision to go to Derbyshire during the last bank holiday week end in May. The owners were extremely welcoming and the hotel was really comfortable. Breakfast was lovely - freshly cooked. Our only complaint was that our room was on the front of the hotel and with an extremely noisy... More

Stayed two nights with family, as we were attending a family wedding on the Saturday in Kniveton. The b & b is in a great location, right in the centre of Ashbourne, with off road parking (parking area a little tricky to find as you have to go through Sainsbury's entrance! The room we were in could have done with... More

Beautifully decorated, clean room with en-suite facing the back garden so lovely and peaceful.

This B and B was fine for a place to rest our heads but not much more. The toilet was unclean and the place could have done with a de-clutter. The walls were thin but the bed/room was comfortable enough.
