I have stayed at the Top Notch Inn in Gorham NH for the past 3 years now. I ride ATV's and this is a great place to stay with easy access to the trail system up there. The hotel has always been clean each time, check in is a breeze, staff is friendly and I feel the quality of the...

Thank you for posting such a great review! ATV's have been a big part of Gorham for years now, and the ability to drive from your room to the trails has made us a hotspot for enthusiasts. It's fun to get dirty on our trails, but it's nice to come back to a clean room.

We went to the Top Notch Inn after finding it on this site. We expected to stay there one night. The first day, we were impressed with how helpful Aude was, helping us find a place to eat especially for a child. We went to Fire Mountain pizza and enjoyed it very much, we also got a discount. The room...

Everyone in the office was pleasant. Checking in and out was quick and painless. The beds could have been a little more comfortable, but the rooms were extremely clean and quaint. Also having a microwave and fridge in the room was convenient.

I stayed at the Top Notch Inn during a business trip. This is a clean hotel with fridge and coffee maker and a pleasant staff. Although not extraordinary, it is a great value and located walking distance to J's Corner Restaurant, a good place to eat.

Very clean, and I love the fact that they are environmentally conscious, recycle everything, use local organic soap, and are and pet friendly. The man at the counter, Kevin, was friendly and gave us a good recommendation for the restaurant next door. This place is conveniently located near Mt. Washington's trail routes. Great visit and would return! Next time we'll...

I stayed for 3 nights in King room convenient to parking (outside the door). The bathroom is updated and clean. The innkeepers were friendly and helpful. This place is walking distance to top fast-food chains and has excellent discounted dinner establishment next door. I liked that it was just north of the more congested towns in the region, and thus...

hotel smelled musty or moldy, the ac was broken, the refrigerator was broken, the bed and pillows were very uncomfortable. The hotel was very over priced. The pictures online were very miss-leading to what the place really looked like
