We stayed at Compass Rose for three nights. The first night we stayed in the Calico Room, which is a lovely room in the main house. It has high ceilings with a great ceiling fan (which came in handy on the very warm night we were there). We enjoyed the Calico Room very much. For the other two nights we... More

We called and made dinner reservations late in the afternoon and they had space for us. It was definitely an interesting experience. I have never been to a restaurant that only had three options to choose from. I had the pan fried Halibut and it wasn't greasy and tasted wonderful. The service was slow and there was only one waitress/hostess/bus... More

We took a trip East which extended almost three weeks, three weeks of hotels and B&Bs and I can say that the Compass Rose was the nicest. We had an amazing view from our room overlooking the wharf. It was clean, comfortable, big and very cheery especially if you are fortunate enough to have a sunny day. Breakfast and dinner... More

My husband and I stopped in hoping for lunch on New Brusnwick Day. Most places on the island were closed, luckily, Compass Rose was not. The service from Cassandra was excellent and inviting. The cook answered questions for us in person! The food was great, and not typical open a can and serve. I had a fresh summer salad and... More

We stayed for one night at the Compass Rose during our trip to Grand Manan and our room was very clean and comfortable. We had our own private bath (across the hall) which was also immaculately clean. Our room had a view of the harbour which was also quite pretty, particularly in the evening. The morning breakfast was good and... More

My wife and I started our Honeymoon/Canadian Adventure at The Compass Rose. We had the Rose Room, what an awesome view. The staff was extremely pleasant and though we didn't have dinner the included breakfast was amazingly good. Not a lot to do on the island, still plenty of unique sights.

We visited grand manan as part of a fly drive holiday. There is not much to do there, so the waiting for ferries and then the crossing time of an hour or so was a little wasted on us. However the hotel was comfortable, clean and the owner/hosts were very helpful and accommodating. The views from the rooms and dining... More

Our rooms over looked the water..... had all necessary amenities. Enjoyed two wonderful dinners and breakfast. It was wonderful exploring Grand Manon. Cycling, kayaking and hiking are all available. For those who enjoy nature and quiet times this is for you. There in no way you cannot enjoy your stay!

Call first for reservations. It's very popular and rightly so. We had the salad starter which came with the main course. The house dressing is so tastey. Followed that with fish cakes with a lovely home made sauce and then pan fried haddock. Finished with blueberry pie and ice cream. The meal was unbelievably GOOD! Highly recommend. The service was...
