After checking out a few motels in Gorham, we decided on the TOP NOTCH INN. Hans liked it and it had high-speed internet. The Inn has a swimming pool & Hot Tub, cable TV, mini-fridge and coffee-maker with supplies. Continental breakfast was not offered.
We've stayed in the Courtyard in NH.. as well as Florida and generally find their comfort, service, and prices very reasonable. I'm not comfortable with big glossy hotels, so finding a Courtyard is always a plus for me. They serve breakfast in a simple space on the main floor. It isn't fancy, but good quality and variety for a standard breakfast.
Locations are always convenient.
I find the Courtyard hotels to be comfortable and reasonably priced... always consistant in their quality, comfort, and ammenities.
Most of the time I would prefer to stay in private cabins or cottages, but when that isn't possible, you can always rely on the Courtyard.
Be sure to check rates and compare discounts....there are a variety of them. We found that the Sr. discount was the best but there is AAA, military, and others.
Breakfast is pretty standard...but fresh and varied.
The Jack Daniels Inn, offering hospitality from the heart of the Monadnock Region in Peterborough, NH. Seventeen beautifully appointed, well-maintained rooms feature queen and double beds with private baths, cable TV and wireless broadband internet. The Jack Daniels Motor Inn provides easy access to Routes 101 and 202 making it the ideal resting place for tourists and business travelers alike.more...
We found this rental apartment with help of our Boston friends. Their neighbours own this large apartment there and we rented from them. Highly recommended! Nicely furnished, equipped with everything you need it has a large bedroom w/bathroom, balcony, another bathroom, huge living room with sofa(bed) + sitting area, dining area, perfect kitchen and a gallery upstairs with even another sitting area and some more beds. It sleeps up to 8 persons. The owners also provide a lot of information/brochures as well as games for entertainment. Our only disappointment was that we didn't see a bear during our stay:(
About 100 m away was the clubhouse. They offer internet access there for a small fee; use of indoor pool, jacuzzi and sauna was free, towels were available for a deposit. They also had billard tables and some one-armed bandits :-) Oh, not to forget a large TV in front of which folks gathered to see the Red Sox or the Yankees.
My fiance and I stayed at Highland House in Tamworth, NH for a long weekend and we absolutely loved it. The bed and breakfast has a perfect, cozy, vintage atmosphere - the details of the house are incredible! The breakfast that came with the room was amazing, the grounds of the bed & breakfast were beautiful and the surrounding area is simply gorgeous. We had an amazing time exploring the area with a treat of a bed and breakfast to come home to and relax in. I absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a romantic and inspiring getaway! We will most definitely be back! In fact, we decided to have our wedding there this fall! We just fell in love with it!
The surrounding area in New Hampshire is gorgeous - a brisk walk to Tamworth town which is a quaint New England town, hiking, climbing, walking the nearby trails etc.
Historic Barnstormers Theatre in Tamworth is just over one mile away.
The breakfasts that come with the rooms are amazing!
The rooms are immaculately clean and fresh.
The owner, Dale, is extremely helpful and welcoming.
This B&B became a home away from home for me. It's not a hotel, it's a B&B, with a welcoming host that makes you feel at home and helps you get to know the country. It's non-commercial, meaning it's affordable and comfortable and not too chique. It's real.
Still, the beautiful site on the hillside with marvellous views, the horses, the silence, the roomy living spaces and delicious breakfasts: It's luxurious in its own way. A great base for a New England trip.
A great host. That's the essence. A homelike atmosphere. The best value for money in New England. Just the perfect B&B!
Well....if I am being perfectly honest, I have to say the hotel was mediocre, at best. The room was not cleaned on a daily basis (dirty towels left in floor, trash left in trash can, etc.). However, while this is somewhat bothersome, I can look past all of that. The thing that bothered me the most and made me give this accommodation a poor rating was the service. We walked into the lobby, and neither person at the reservations desk acknowledged us. It wasn't like this on just one occasion. It happened at least 5 times....never were we spoken to (unless we asked a question or walked up to the desk.) How rude!
Close to the beach without having to pay astronomical prices...
This past February, Patrick and I drove 4.5 hours to visit with my Uncle Paul. There was already a housefull of people staying at his house, so I opted to check into the motel down the street from him. The room was a basic room with 2 queen size beds, TV, bathroom and table and chairs. It offere a continental breakfast, which consisted of muffins, cereal toast, apples, bannanna, coffee, tea, cocoa, milk and orange juice. I slept fine until about 4 AM at which time I woke up freezing, not because Patrick stole all the blankets, but because I could turn the heat above 65, I think the thermostat was broken. When we got up I took a shower than Patrick took a bath. This was a mistake, when he was finished the drain plug handle broke and I couldn't get the tub to drain. The TV was placed in such a place that you couldn't view it from the second bed and the remote broke. I paid $75 for the night, this included all taxes and fees.
This hotel allows pets.
We had a great stay in this cosy B&B. It is located on the west side of the White Mountains near Franconia Notch State Park and the Kancamagus Highway. So it is close to hiking and skiing opportunities.
The owners are nice people and very helpful in giving advice on things to do and on places to eat . They make a delicious breakfast, every morning fresh fruit salad, homebaked muffins, and a choice of eggs, omelets, pancakes, crepes and French toast. There is also homemade apple, cranberry and my favorite, maple syrup.
Our room "Indian room" was rather small but clean and lovely decorated with Indian ornaments. There was a small TV, airco and a small bathroom. It was perfect for a couple of nights.
Make sure you bring cash money, they don't accept creditcards.
The historic Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods is where in in 1944 the world leaders came together in order to discuss the monetary and economic environment of post WW2. The meeting resulted in the foundation of the IMF and the World Bank, otherwise known as the Bretton Woods institutions.
The hotel offers spectacular views of the White Mountain, the highest peak in New England and often snow-covered.
Our stay was fantastic, the hotel staff extremely friendly and the views from our hotel room unbeatable. The only negative point was the jacket requirement for dinner.
Our company trip destination landed us in luxury at the famous Mt. Washington Hotel and Resort at Bretton Woods. I don't know the rates but would imagine they are high. I know the food was very high. Dinner Buffet - $32.95. Breakfast Buffet- about $20. After a tiring day of hiking we chose room service. It took forever to get service (room service had an answering machine!) and when the food came it was slim pickens except for the price. Not room service as we were accustomed to. Breakfast room service of two bowls of oatmeal was $32. See Lloyd Hill's restaurant for area dining that is tasty and better priced.
There's no substitute for the glamorous hallways, meeting rooms and grand porch. The weather was perfect so it was great to sit on the porch in the comfortable chairs with wonderful views of Mount Washington. The grounds were well kept and inviting. The personnel were friendly and helpful although the concierge was worthless except to get maps.
There are many sizes of rooms. See if you can get a larger one. Ours was quite small but friends were thrilled with the spaciousness of theirs.
Spend time on the grand porch with great views of the surrounding mountains.
I could not afford to stay here; instead, I chose a modest hotel nearby. But this is a beautiful hotel, and a great place if you have the money for it.
In 1944, as World War II drew to a close, representatives from the victorious Allied powers met here to discuss the post-war economic arrangement. The result was the original General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). The GATT treaty paved the way for the huge post-war economic boom.
Very close to the beach and boardwalk. Very convenient, quiet and inexpensive. We stayed the first night in a regular room, which was okay, it is not a room you would rather stay in than go out, but it was good and kept us more active. The second night we stayed in the jacuzzi room, and let me tell you it was great. For the extra $20 bucks or so for that room, we will keep going back.
The jacuzzi was nice because it is not "in" the room with you inlike other hotels and such that have jacuzzi rooms. It had a fake little gas fireplace and had candles out, an upgrade from the television in the previous one as well as a DVD player.
I personally do not feel that other resorts can even compete with Mt. Washington as far as being grand and in delivering pomp on such an immense scale.
When Joseph Stickney (railroad tycoon) conceived the idea of this hotel, he set a new standard for luxury. There were electric lights, an indoor pool, private baths for each room, Tiffany lamps, and elegant chandeliers--this was all unique and extravagant for the times. How sad to know that Joseph Stickney died just one year after his creation opened to the public. Stickney's widow remarried to a prince--Prince Carolyn Aymon de Faucigny-Lucinge. Sadly, he died soon after the marriage! But, the widow continued to run the hotel.
Currently, a consortium of investors owns The Mount Washington Hotel resort. They have certainly updated and renovated the place, making it even more splendid. They brought in the live orchestra for dinner and the authentic prohibition speak-easy lounge called The Cave.
All along the Public Spaces, you are able to read about the history of this great, old hotel and how the Italian Craftsmen were imported (about 1000 +) to build and complete all the work here. It's fascinating.
A personal experience that our family had will give you an idea of the staff and guests at the Mount Washington Hotel.
When we were there, Allan and I wanted to play golf, but our daughter Jill was too young to leave alone for four hours. Thus, we talked to a staff member who suggested leaving her with one of their most loyal and long-time guests--an 80 year-old-woman who had been coming here each year since she was six years old! The woman was quite the swimmer, so she volunteered to take Jill swimming in the indoor pool. They spent several hours enjoying the pool, playing pool volleyball, etc. After the swim and clean up, the two of them enjoyed afternoon tea together!
It's a memory for our family that lingers...Kindness, thoughtfulness, and loyalty. These attributes describe the staff and the guests.
