We've been visiting the Top Notch for 10 years usually in the summer/fall. They just re-opened due to Covid so we knew certain activities and amenities wouldn't be available. The Service at the ROOST was excellent as was our waiter (wish we could remember his name) he was so great talking fishing and sports with my son. Charlie who took our reservations very helpful and emailed to let us know we could check in early. Everything was cleaned and wiped down. All guests and hotel staff wore masks inside. We used the bike path into town and rented an extra bike across the street. We will return again
Topnotch experience at Topnotch!!
My daughters and I had a wonderful three days at Topnotch. Everything was top-drawer: the food,the kind and helpful staff, the spa treatments and personnel and the entire facility itself. We felt very pampered and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We would return in a heartbeat, especially in warm weather when we would be able to enjoy the outdoor facilities. Thank you Topnotch.
Sub-par Spa Resort
With the price of services, and having been to comparable spa resorts, we were disappointed in the overall amenities and treatments. The relaxation/waiting room was right off the entrance to the spa and adjacent locker room, which resulted in a noisy atmosphere. It was also very awkward to be escorted through the locker room and down a set of stairs to receive the massage. It was not fun to have to climb stairs after the treatment, either. We were also disappointed that the massage time was cut short...there were two of us and we both found that our treatment time included the time walking to the treatment room, disrobing, talking to the therapist, and returning to the relaxation room. That means that our massages were cut short by several minutes. The massage had good technique but was very "piecemeal" with very choppy components and it did not flow well. There were a lot of hands-off moments that made the massage feel very rushed and not synchronized at all. The nail treatments were also sub-par and the nail techs were more interested in talking to each other and we would have preferred a nice, relaxing environment with minimal talking. We paid for a luxury spa experience and could have gotten better services at a local massage parlor or nail salon for a quarter of the price. We have been to many spas and this would rate as one of the poorest by far. We do not take reviews lightly and wish we had known this information before spending a good sum of money on this experience. We are very willing to pay for quality services and often pay upwards of $200 per massage but the quality is far superior, as is the atmosphere. In addition, a gratuity of 22% was automatically added, which was more than the standard.
Always Love Coming Back
Topnotch has some of the friendliest staff that I've ever encountered. I worked with them for about 6 months on planning out 50+ persons Company Retreat. I know they are always busy but they made us feel like a priority. Always friendly faces throughout the resort and they go above and beyond. I've only been in the Winter but I'd love to visit in the fall.
Great place to stay at Stowe
We will always go to Topnotch. Only reason I did not give 5 stars is because the building is dated and the bathroom doors are rotted (painted over). Restaurants/bar was pretty setting but the menu is limited. Service is the BEST in Stowe.
