Our family likes to visit New Hampshire each summer and go to Santa's Village. The Top Notch Inn is 15 minutes away which makes it very convenient. Our hotel room (#107) was very clean and comfortable. The mini fridge and coffee maker in our room was fantastic. The kids really enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The staff were very... More

The American-Norwegian owners recently renovated smoke free room 122 and fitted it with a silent split air conditioner, 27" inch flat television set with 70 channels, microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. The bathroom with bath/shower is of high quality, but electricity failed several time. Reception pulled out all the stops... More

I have stayed at the Top Notch Inn at least once a year for ten years. The hotel is comfortable and I always seem to relax while staying there. There is some intangible quality that makes this place feel like home to me and worth the money for the room. The staff is always friendly and check-in is a breeze.... More

We recommend the Top Notch Inn. We very much enjoyed our clean comfortable room at a great price. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.

It's great that you enjoyed your foliage trip here, and took the time to write us a stellar review! Most of our rooms you can park right in front of, with the "Country Rooms" being the exception. Our reception is open until 11pm most nights, and closes earlier in late fall. Again, we are very happy that you enjoyed your... More

Being a rider who travels for a living I can really appreciate all that the TopNotch Inn has to offer. First the room I had was one of the newly remodeled ones.

What a beautiful little New England Motel. We loved the clean room, and unique fixtures in the bathroom. I especially liked the hooks to hang my things on. The hot tub was up and running and a good temp to spend a long afternoon in. Fall foliage was great too. Thank You
