Over Compton House Heritage Inn
St. John's op Newfoundland is de meest oostelijke stad van Canada. Deze havenstad op het schiereiland Avalon is vooral bekend om de vele gezellige cafés en restaurants. In het centrum ligt Compton House Heritage Inn, gevestigd in een oud Victoriaans huis. Bij binnenkomst stapt u letterlijk terug in de tijd, terwijl de moderne voorzieningen tijdens uw verblijf voor een heerlijk comfort zorgen. In de keuken wordt koffie en thee geserveerd en achter het huis ligt een prachtige tuin. Het cirkelvormige stuk land, compleet met slingerende wandelpaden, wilde klimop en kleurrijke bloemen, is een uitnodigende plek voor een zonnige middag, om te lezen of gewoon even te genieten.

St. John's is de hoofdstad en tevens de grootste stad van de provincie Newfoundland & Labrador. Deze 100.000 inwoners tellende stad ligt op het schiereiland Avalon aan de Atlantische kust. St. John’s is in het begin van de 17e eeuw door de Britten gesticht. In 1665 was het korte tijd in Nederlandse handen, dankzij een verovering van Michiel de Ruyter.
"Great Place to Stay in St. John's!"
I stayed in the Pippy Suite in Compton House on Saturday, February 11, 2017, and it was my second time staying in this room. The room is spacious, the four post bed is very comfortable, and overall, the room is warm and inviting. Staff are helpful and friendly, and the breakfast the brought us (fried eggs, bacon, toast, tea, juice) was hot and fresh and delicious. The location is just a few minutes walk from George Street and the downtown core, so it is perfect if you intend to seek a night's entertainment before a comfortable night's rest. I highly recommend the Pippy suite for couple seeking a romantic weekend get away.
From the decorations to the staff, everything was amazing. We stayed here for a night at the end of our trip to NL and it was exactly what we needed to help us unwind after a long trip. Every room was decorated differently, was very clean, and had everything we needed to have a comfortable stay. At first the room we had only had one bed, but we had three people. The young lady working the the office quickly and eagerly called around until she found us the Baffin Suite in the Compton House. She even made the pull out couch bed for us and provided us with extra amenities that we might have needed during our stay. The lady serving us breakfast the next morning was also very polite. The food wasn't fantastic, but it was quite good and very fresh. We will definitely be recommending this place to our friends.
"Quick taxi ride to downtown"
Beautiful heritage home. Rooms somewhat updated. No hosts or check in area. Staff at breakfast could be friendlier which surprised me because Newfoundland is known for friendly people. Food was okay but no options offered.
"Don't know what to make of this place"
Stayed here for one night recently.Never saw another human being in the building.No one to welcome you or check you in and no one available to answer questions.This gave the inn a lonely,impersonal feel. The booklet in the room said no password required for their wifi but we tried to log onto the internet and it asked for a password.Tried dialing the front desk many times to ask about a password but no one ever answered the phone. The computer and printer in the hallway for guest's use was not working nor was the software updated so that was completely useless as well.I had an important document to print but was unable to do so, The headboards were metal and the pillows used to keep slipping down through the gaps throughout the night. The toilet paper was very poor quality single ply which one would expect to find at a campsite,not in an expensive suite. There were also some good points: the room was beautiful and well appointed.The jacuzzi was a nice touch but I wasn't a fan of the glass shower stall or glass toilet door which didn't give much privacy for us more modest folks. All in all it was a very average stay and considering the price,I won't stay at this inn again.
"Beautiful heritage home, with breakfast, but not a B&B"
I honestly don't know what to think about this place. Yes, the setting is gorgeous and old with all sorts of architecture details. And yes, breakfast is served in the morning. That's where it ends with regards to being a B&B. No one actually lives here, which is what I'd normally expect with a B&B. Part of the charm with a B&B is meeting the owners and getting to know the locals. But no one lives here. Which makes checking in more confusing. There is no front desk, because this is not a hotel. But where to check in? There's a sign on the front door with big letters about people who are arriving late to check the mailbox or something similar. We were not checking in late. But if you read the smaller print below, for everyone who is not checking in late, go to the building behind and to the west of Compton House. Inside there will be someone who can check you in and provide a key. I cannot even imagine what my response would have been if we had just gotten off a red eye flight from BC and tried to check in to this place. I probably would have canceled the reservation and found a Best Western. As it was, we were not excessively tired and happened to run into someone who was just checking out about 5min after we arrived. They were able to tell us where to check in. The room is comfortable and spacious enough. And very nicely decorated. The hot tub in the bedroom we found a little odd. But the lack of someone local to talk to really put a damper on the experience. If we had a question about a local attraction or where to find something or any number of things a local would know, we had no one to talk to. For that matter, if there did happen to be a problem with the room (there wasn't), like we needed more towels, who would we talk to? I think an earlier reviewer referred to this place as a boarding house. That is probably the most accurate description I can think of for Compton House. A beautiful heritage home, which is why I'm giving it an average rating instead of poor, but doesn't have the feel or welcome of a B&B.
