Compton House
Ranked #17 of 26 Ashbourne B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 9, 2008

We went to this B&B after looking for somewhere close to Ashbourne town centre. The B&B is only a 2 minute walk into town so very handy for a drink and dinner. It’s located on a main road into Ashbourne town and the car park is accessed, strangely, via what looks like a pedestrian walkway into Sainsbury’s.

The room was fairly small for a double and the bathroom tiny (the bathroom door was supposed to slide but kept coming off its guide). The room was okay in terms of cleanliness, although we did notice cobwebs on the ceiling of the bedroom and bathroom, but it was pretty quiet and the owners friendly. Breakfast was huge and very tasty!

Overall this B&B was fine for a functional trip to the area but I don’t know if I’d recommend it for a relaxing leisure break.

Recently used Compton House on a trip to Alton Towers, pleasantly suprised having booked online, a great and friendly welcome, nice clean, slightly frilly rooms, a huge breakfast, and parking at the rear. Would happily stay again, but unsure why I would want to visit Ashbourne again.

A clean and comfortable B&B close to the centre of Ashbourne. Excellent cooked breakfast with vegetarians well catered for. The landlady is friendly and welcoming and has a good knowledge of the local area and its attractions.

Parking is available to the rear of the property but it was not obvious how to access it on first arrival. The combination of one-way system and the busy on-street parking to the front of the property made this a slightly stressful experience. I would recommend that you contact the accommodation for instructions before travelling.
