Booked 3 rooms here. Not much of a selection on the island. Good location coming from the ferry. First night we decided to eat at the Inn. Meal and service was very good. Room was nice, clean and adequate. We all felt that it was over priced however, satisfied. For what is available, this is the best your going to get.

We stayed in the Wildflower Room for the week that we were in Grand Manan visiting with our family there. Linda and Kevin were wonderful hosts accommodating all our needs. Breakfast each morning was wonderful and we dined twice with our family and all enjoyed our meals. The view of the harbour was great, watching the fishing boats coming and going. We will most definitely stay at Compass Rose when we visit in the future and recommend to all.

Way more than we expected. Some sites rated this gem of an inn as 3 stars. Definitely better! 4 stars for sure. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Spectacular views. Excellent beach combing/ beach class opportunities. Breakfast was super. They accommodated my daughter’s dietary needs. Do recommend bringing earplugs as the foghorn can be annoying (only happened to us one night).

We loved this Inn and Grand Manan Island. The hosts were very helpful and made us feel very welcome. The restaurant also had great food. We had two breakfasts and two dinners and enjoyed both. I recommend this Inn to anyone visiting Grand Manan.

We were fortunate to get a last minute room at the Compass Rose due to a cancellation - unfortunately it was only for 1 night. The room was nice size, very clean, and very quaint. We didn't have dinner there, but the morning breakfast of blueberry pancakes, bacon, juice, coffee was awesome! Kevin was a helpful host, as we were having to catch the 9:30 ferry back NB. The property is convenienly located right next to the ferry dock so made the morning much easier. We loved the island and the property and hope to return soon!

The Inn was well located close to the ferry terminal and on the ocean. Our room was over looking the ocean and had a mini fridge and a coffee maker. The breakfasts were included and they also had dinner available most nights with a reservation. The meals were very good with a varied menu of local fish dishes. We stayed for 4 nights and easily filled our time with museum visits, hiking and kayaking. It was our 3rd visit to Grand Manan and would recommend this Inn as the staff are friendly and very knowledgeable on things to see and do on the island.

Visited the Compass Rose Inn the 1st week in July.. inn is very close to the ferry. Linda was there to greet us with a smile And escorted us to our room “the garden Room” Impeccably clean with a microwave and a fridge as well as a balcony to view the bay. Breakfast was included and I have to say Linda was very considerate with my diet and provided me with almond milk!! They also serve the best dinner in the island !!! I cannot say enough high praise for this wonderful inn. Thank you Linda for your hospitality !! And also thank you Glen for your assistance!

Stayed one night .. 'Garden Suite'..all we needed!. perfect space, easy access for seniors. Breakfast ..blueberry pancakes/Maple Syrup/ pressed coffee...great! Morning view spectacular...not one but two 'weir drivers' on the water as well as fishing trawlers, and pleasure craft. Be sure to visit the Grand Manan Museum in Grand Harbour for overview of life on the Island ..both in the past & present!
