We have gone up to the White Mountains two years in a row and have stayed at the Top Notch in Gorham NH both times. We went up there to visit Santa's Village, and Storyland. They are a little closer to Santa's Village but Storyland is only 20 minutes away. This motel is clean, hospitable, and a fun place to... More

I stayed at the Top Notch Inn on a Saturday night with three friends after a long day of hiking up and back down Mt. Washington. After checking in one of my friends and I proceeded to the room to drop our bags off and clean up. The room was clean, had a big king bed and a set of... More

Everything was great. We will certainly look you up, if staying in your area, in the future. The room and bathroom were the cleanest ever! We also enjoyed the ‘hot’ tub. The discounts offered, at nearby restaurants, is a real nice touch, and helpful. A comfy bed, spotless room, sparkle clean bathroom, whisper quite a/c unit, and so on. Very... More

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.... More

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... More

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.... More

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. Joe S.

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.

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.
