“Great value for an updated deluxe room”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

I stayed on a Friday night in June before going to Mt. Washington and it was a great stay. I really liked the price for what I got. I stayed in the deluxe room with the king size bed. The room was better than the picture shows. The bathroom was updated with new fixtures and the room was very clean. I am going to stay here again when heading back up to the Whites.

My only gripe is I wish they had given another bar of soap in the bathroom.

We stayed 2 nights to explore the Mt. Washington valley by biking & hiking. The staff was friendly and helpful, pointing out trailheads and biking routes to us. The room was very, very clean, with a nice microwave & fridge, both clean. The room had a king bed (comfortable) and the most comfortable side chair (& ottoman) we have ever had in any room we had stayed. The perfect place to read or relax after a day outdoors. Nice lawn area with chairs & table so you aren't stuck in the room.

We booked Top Notch Inn for a weekend hiking getaway. By the time we reached the hotel, we were barely able to think after conquering Mt. Washington, and the front desk step were so kind and helpful; giving dinner and evening entertainment suggestions. The room was comfortable and clean. Hot shower, a nice mini-fridge to save leftovers, and large bed. The town of Gorham is really nice too; a little less crowded than North Conway. We will definitely be back.

Had a great experience staying at the Pinkham House with our hiking group. (June 5) The Pinkham House 'apartment' is very clean, spacious, and suited for a family or group like ours. The Staff is fantastic. Will definitely stay again when we are in the area to hike or if in the area with family.

This place looked so lovely from the outside but was really lovely inside too. Elaine in reception is a real treasure to this place. She was so friendly and knowledgeable. We loved it from first sight and when casually asking about our chances of seeing a moose, Elaine was really enthusiastic and gave us a moose map and lots of interesting facts and story's. The place had only just reopened after the winter. It was newly refurbished and we couldn't find a fault with it even if we wanted to, which we didn't. She sat outside at tables on the grass to plan our moose trip and even met the resident dog. We can't rate this place highly enough and just love Elaine, thanks for a wonderful stay, wish it could have been longer.

The wife and I stayed at the Top Notch last week while touring Mt. Washington. Henry and the rest of the staff keep an Immaculate place and are nice as the day is long. The wifi was very quick, and the cable was ok. This place is a good value for what you pay.
