“Great Place for a family!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

We checked in on a Thursday in January at a resort home. The resort home was new, clean, and spacious for 4 adults and 4 kids under 3! As far as cleanliness goes, the housekeeping is kind of lacking. We had to call to get them out there, and when they came they did a subpar job.

Service is great, though we did run into a problem we have yet to run into anywhere. They ran out of bottled water on Saturday morning and were not getting a shipment in until Thursday! That's crazy! They should have went to the supermarket and bought cases.

We had room service delivered and it was great. Always on time and always hot. Had lunch at Norma's and it was great! Overall, I would reccomend this hotel!

Overall not impressive. Very noisy, customer service not what I would expect, not much attention to detail. Staff seems young, perhaps unexperienced. Will likely not return in the future.

Room Tip: Don't take a room on the same side as the parking lot.

Our family spent a 5 night getaway at Topnotch. We had 2 rooms (adjoining) on the 3rd floor. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The beds are a bit softer than what we are used to, but still comfortable. Rooms are spacious. Housekeeping services were good. The staff (front desk, bellmen) are all very helpful and friendly. There are plenty of common areas to lounge in, we liked the main lobby space with the cozy fireplace. Norma's restaurant has a nice menu and our 2 meals there were very good, as was the service. The pool and health club area are very nice. We did not use any spa services on this round mostly because we found the prices to be a bit over the top (manicure $50 plus an 18% gratuity added in)...Our only criticism was that the snowplow would clear the snow (which there was hardly any) over and over again and it was very noisy, and one morning a caretaker was shovelling (??? what snow) more like the pavement at 7:30 AM. We chose to drive our own car to the mountain, but there was free shuttle service readily available. As other reviewers have written, we too, went to look at the resort at Stowe Mountain. It is lovely, but lacks the homey feeling of Topnotch.

We've also stayed at the SML, and visited friends at the Trapp lodge. Must say that Top Notch is fantastic. It doesn't have the slope proximity of SML, or the new feel for that matter, but it is also a little more affordable, and if you're driving out to eat every day (as SML dining options are very limited) then it really is a great choice.

The rooms are a nice size, the beds are comfy, and the service really is top notch. The hotel is a little worn down, but that adds to the mountain lodge charm. The spa is amazing, with great common areas, services, and booth indoor and outdoor pools/hot tubs are wonderful.

One caveat is the fact that pet accommodating rooms are all in the lower categories, and on the first floor. This means that you can't have a higher quality room, and that you constantly hear people walking above and around your room (especially if they have boots on).

The property is great, the staff are all very pleasant, and the location is half way between most bars/restaurants and the mountain itself.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: If you are stuck on the first floor (pet friendly rooms) ask for a room not facing the parking lot...
