Reviewed 15 August 2014

We had a three night stay Aug 7 - 9 and found this Inn perfect for our stay. My wife and I were in the Mt Washington room. The Inn has several good restaurants near it we had a short ride to the auto road up Mt. Washington and the location was perfect for us to enjoy the area.

Recently my family and I stayed at Top Notch Inn the room was comfortable and very clean it was great to come back to when we came back from all our sightseeing . We loved that it was located so close to all the attractions. The pool and hot tub were nice and the staff was very pleasant. I would highly advise that anyone who wants a nice place to stay while they visit NH to stay at the Top Notch Inn.

Recently my family visited NH for a getaway with the girls. We stayed at Top Notch as it is conveniently located right in the middle of Storyland and Santa's Village, and just a small drive from Clarke's Trading Post and North Conway. We were greeted at the front desk by Elaine, who was one of the nicest people I have ever encountered! She gave us some information about local restaurants and parks and assured us that she was available for anything we needed. We even received a free pass for one of the parks for staying 2 nights! In addition to this pass, Top Notch partners with 4 local places to eat for a 10% discount.

The room was great. We had 3 adults and 2 small children so we booked a room with bunk beds and a fridge, which turned out to be very convenient. It was clean and very cozy! It was also very affordable considering the other places we looked into. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! We will definitely return and tell all our friends!

We stayed at the Top Notch Inn in Gorham NH for a one night stay. We were so happy with the Inn. We were welcomed by Elaine--who was so friendly and informative and showed us to our room. We stayed in the Mt Madison which was beautifully decorated is country style. Felt like a bed and breakfast room. Very clean, no weird smells !!! The grounds were well kept, lots of pretty flowers in bloom. Walking distance to many restaurants. Will definitely be back!

Nice, clean and utilities are up to date with excellent low noise heating/cooling system. Comfortable bedding a plus! Easy access to local restaurants by walking a plus! Modestly priced for the area in the middle of a busy summer! Beautiful town too!

Room Tip: This is located in the Heart of the White Mountains so easy access to fantastic outdoor activities...
