How far is this hotel from Mt Washington and its attractions?
Yes, I agree with Kpalbug. That was our reason our stay there, for the Mt. Washington sights. Top Notch is a great location for all. On the way is a great restaraunt for breakfast. It's the Water Wheel.

"Upgrade so as not to be near the street. They offered me this and I took them up on it as the street snow plows were running all night."
"If you need it very quiet to sleep the heating unit can be very loud at night. Other than that great place to stay."
"The room was a classic hotel room with traditional 20th century furnishings, maintained in a clean way. nice big new TV."
"Room 120 was excellent."
"Book the cottage!"
