Thank you Billy for being so welcoming and friendly! Had a relaxing time away staying at this guesthouse and exploring the local area of Buxton and the surrounding Peak District. Would recommend this guest house. Lovely cooked breakfast too

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

Stayed there for one night for a wedding. Excellent service from the host, best customer service I have had in a while. The place has a homely feel to it, really cosy and welcoming. The breakfast was really good with great coffee. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting this area. Definitely staying here again if ever I am around.

We stayed for one night in "the best room in the house". It was well equipped and spacious with a comfortable bed (although we would have liked more pillows). Bill is an excellent host, full of local knowledge, and cooks a delicious breakfast. It's a great location, walking distance to the sights, pubs and the shops. Had a great visit... More

We stayed at Compton Guest House for 5 nights. When we arrived we were just shown to our room and not given any information about the town and local area. Whilst we were having breakfast the bed would be made. The cups we had used for drinks were just rinsed and still remained stained, so we ended up having to... More

We didn't actually stay at Compton Guest House but Bill showed us around the guest house and it was very well presented and looked very comfortable. My review is only to thank Bill for lending us his bikes for the day so we were able to cycle the Monsal Trail (which is fantastic by the way) and to say how... More

I couldn't have really asked for more! Great location, nice big spacious room, pretty much spotlessly clean & the breakfast was delish! B&Bs can be a bit hit and miss sometimes, but this was spot on, definitely recommended!
