We journeyed up from Boston with our 2 young children to visit storyland and do a few outdoorsy adventures. Top Notch was a perfect place to stay, offering an immaculate pool, walking distance to a great mini golf & arcade as well as many restaurants and a Dunkins. Our room was one of the cleanest I've ever stayed in and... More

We went to Gorham to work toward achieving my husband's goal of climbing the 48 4,000+ footers (we now have 1 left!), and Topnotch Inn was our wonderful home base for 6 days. We are in our 60's...everything was perfect. Comfort, conveniences like fridge, microwave, great ice machine, laundry room, bar in shower to lean on while showering/shaving legs after... More

We chose to stay in Gorham because we had booked a rafting trip with Muddy Paw and their office was right down the road. The room at the Top Notch was clean but had a really musty, stale smell. The bathroom is teeny, tiny but we were rafting and hiking so not getting all gussied up we didn't need to... More

Thank you for staying with us. We're sorry you found some things unsatisfactory and will make changes to rectify. Most find our Wi-Fi very good, so we're curious on the device you were using. Nice that you went rafting with Raft NH which is right down the street from us! We hope you can back again and give us another... More

My elderly mother and I stayed here for two nights. We stayed in the Mt. Jefferson room. It was fine for the two of us. Clean and comfortable. We appreciated having the refrigerator and microwave. Walking distance to restaurants and stores. We would go back. Tracy V 7/17-7/18

This hotel is top notch. Recent renovations to the bathrooms and living space really made it worth the stay. Hotel staff was friendly and courteous. I would definitely recommend to friends and family making a trip to the White Mountain area.

Arrived in Gorham to find we had been 'bounced' to this hotel without our consent. However turned out OK for a 1 night stop over, but I wouldn't have wanted to stay longer. Staff did their best to help us out. Basic accomodation, but clean and functional
