This is our third year at the Top Notch Inn for the Gorham Bike Weekend. The inn and the staff are two big reasons of why it is one of our favorite weekends of the year. The rooms are always spotless and the staff is always working hard to make our stay more enjoyable. The Mount Moriah cottage is cozy... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed September 10, 2016

We have lodged with Top Notch for many years. They have always treated us like family, yet professionally, with respect and understanding. The accommodations are excellent as are the owners and desk personnel. They are very well in tune with all the area attractions, restaurants, and other information at their fingertips. The rooms are exceptionally clean and inviting with more... More

Had a great long weekend at the Top Notch Inn. My husband and I stayed at the Moriah house, lots of of space to gather with family or friends. All the rooms were nicely decorated and looked brand new. Have to say I loved the kitchen the best. Location is great, close to mountain biking trails, shops and restaurants.

Dear Kuke, Thanks for letting us know of these issues since this is the first we've heard of them. We don't recall any other complaints about the cable, or hot water not being hot enough. All of our rooms are smoke free, but the smoke odor in the room could be from smokers walking by while the window was open.... More

Arrived Friday night and check in was fast and convenient. Stay at Moriah Cottage and it was great. Enjoy all the shops and restaurants that were close by. Went for a mountain bike ride at Moose Brook State Park. Would recommend to everybody to stay at.

Our stay was just fine... the location excellent, the staff friendly and helpful. The towels are too small though, not a big problem, just ask for extras! We asked for extra pillows and a blanket as well and snugged right into our room on a cold and rainy night. We were so comfortable we brought in dinner.
