I am so glad I chose this lovely bnb to stay on my way through. Hospitality was every bit what you needed and the place is very clean. I was made very welcome from the first step through the door. Definitely would stay again. M

Central location with everything in walking distance, friendly staff, a comfortable and clean room plus a tasty breakfast in the morning. Would definitely stay again and would recommend this to anyone looking to stay in Buxton. Looking forward to my next booking here.

I just paid a return visit to my fave place to stay when I visit family in the UK, Compton Guest House. It's still the same friendly and welcoming place it always was but now a lot trendier!! Top marks for upgrading and managing to keep the "family" atmosphere. Love the new dining room and the sun patio was great!

We booked this guest house at very short notice (that morning) and were not disappointed. It is an attractive Victorian building retaining many of the original features. Lucky to be allocated room 3 which is on the front of the hotel, is large and has comfortable arm chairs in the bay window looking out across the town to the hills.... More

Splendid en suit room, perfect sleep, jolly breakfast, really great no nonsense service with high grade banter and much laughter. A happy experience and I left still laughing. Room 3 is treat, large with a capacious soft bed.

My friends had booked a surprise birthday treat for me in Buxton at the Opera House. They had booked Compton House for us to stay overnight in. From the minute we arrived the lovely Billy welcomed us to his warm and cosy guest house 2 minutes out of town. The room was spacious and clean and Billy was on hand... More

We are in the heart of Buxton market town with close walking distance to all the main attractions (Opera house / Town centre shops / spa baths / parks / pavilion gardens / market place) and then a short drive or cycle to the following (Goyt valley nation park / Bakewell / Chatsworth / Haddon Hall / Pools Cavern).
