The Inn was perfect. It is conveniently located near the center of town and within walking distance to everything. Clean, well-appointed and classy. Our suite (#1) was perfect and well furnished. The Inn Keeper, Kim was warm and welcoming... just like the Inn. Breakfast was a 10 out of 10. We cannot wait until our next stay.

This is an excellent Inn, really more like a small all suite hotel. Rooms are large and lovely, breakfast a cut above normal, and the Innkeeper Kim very friendly. Well located and convenient to many restaurants and shops. Newburyport is a well preserved historical town well worth a visit.

The atmosphere at the Compass Rose is fantastic, the innkeeper is wonderful and friendly, and the location couldn't be better! Right in the middle of downtown Newburyport, with very comfy beds and wonderful spots to relax, read, and take in the view, this was a wonderful place to escape to after our wedding.

We had a wonderful last minute birthday getaway at the Compass Rose Inn! Our room #3 on the second floor was spacious and lovely, fireplace was a joy, king bed was very comfy, large bathroom and XL shower! Lots of windows, very bright and cheerful. Refrigerator, wine glasses and plentiful cocktail ice appreciated. The Innkeeper, Kim, couldn't have been warmer or more welcoming. She gave us very descriptive info on food, ambiance and service at neighborhood restaurants making it easy to make good choices among the large variety close to the inn. Breakfast was delicious and nicely presented and Kim was very patient with us all as we stayed in the dining room long past appropriate having a lovely chat with another couple we met while there. Highly recommend a stay at this beautiful inn and we hope to return again soon!

Such a lovely inn, right in the middle of downtown. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Kim, the innkeeper, was so pleasant and made us delicious breakfasts both mornings we were there. She also clued us onto the 4th floor cupola and we spend the first evening watching the sun set while having some wine! Room was large and beds were very comfortable. We were in the "annex" - upstairs right next door to the main entrance. The living room in the inn itself was cozy with comfortable sofa and chairs and a roaring fire. Parking right out front and in the rear.

First, the Innkeeper, Kim was very accommodating and made us feel very comfortable from the moment we arrived. Our suite was very clean and beautifully decorated. The attention to detail was easy to see. Comfortable sitting areas arround the inn were a big draw for a relaxing break, especially the cupola was perfect for an afternoon glass of wine. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. Kim's knowledge of the town led us to some excellect restaurants. We are looking forward to our next visit. Highly recommend.

Lovely inn and inn keeper. Kim makes a delicious frittata and knows the town well. Great location, comfortable beds, spacious suites, cozy fireplace in the living room. All rooms are the same so doesn't really matter which one you get. Good value over all.

Beautiful room and Inn in a perfect location! We thoroughly enjoyed the stay! The Inn keep, Kim, was accommodating and friendly. We had a lovely breakfast in the morning and even fresh cookies during check-in. The location could not be any better being able to walk to downtown easily. Highly recommend
