From the moment I received a call from Sue & Jerry the day before my friend and I arrived, I knew this was going to be a good stay. They called to find out what time we'd be arriving and to offer assistance with buses/taxis etc so that we got there safely.
Sue and Jerry are the warmest and friendliest couple I've met in a long time and Compston House is a great little B&B.
The rooms are spotless with TV/Clock Radio/Hairdryer/Refreshment tray, the beds are comfortable and are decorated in their own particular way - we stayed in the New York room and I'm surprised how much I learned just from the pictures and the reference books!!!
Sue and Jerry's piece de resistance has to be those fabulous American breakfasts - I couldn't believe how accommodating they were - anything you wanted within reason. The food is all locally sourced and really tasty and Sue's own recipe pancakes with maple syrup to die for!! And on Sunday's home made blueberry muffins as well.
Rather than a guest you feel like family and they want everything to be just right for you - including that little bowl of welcome choccies at the top of the stairs.
My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I really look forward to coming back.
