My husband and I booked a room here for a weekend getaway at the tail end of the summer. When we first arrived, we thought the place looked pretty nice- definitely could be a three-star hotel. At check in, the girl working the desk was extremely rude. Then we were then sent to our room- which was not actually in... More

Stayed there in August for a few nights (three rooms). Location and amenities make this place. Nice Lakefront beach, indoor and outdoor pools and close to Weirs, Funspot, Gunstock, Laconia, etc. Rooms were ok. Toilet seat was broken and told housekeeping the first day there. It was still not fixed after 4 days. Irons did not work properly in two... More

Bruce, Thank you for the review. I am sorry to hear about the toilet seat problem, and especially that it was not resolved by our staff. We pride ourselves on our quick response times to any reported issues, so I am going to look into why the ball was dropped here. Also with the broken irons. I tried to figure... More

We love staying at the Margate. This was our third visit and the office staff is always so helpful. We had the family suite and it was so much fun to all me together instead of separate rooms. The beach is quiet and relaxing in the middle of September. We were the only ones using it so it was like... More

We recently said our vows at The Margate in the Lakeside Pavillion & had our reception in the Mariah Room. We also stayed for a total of 5 days. It was a great stay! Everything you need is at the Margate, The beach bar with food & drinks, the lake & beach, the pools & gym. We took advantage of... More

The room was comfy...and we had a lake view. The room was clean. Breakfast was tasty and complimentary. Staff was very kind for our check-in. The only things that would of made it more perfect was if we had a full lake view. There was a big tree in front of our window. Most of the windows did not seem... More

Dear Kami M. Thank you for your kind comments. I do understand your annoyance through your point of view, and I can empathize. But yes, we are very family orientated and periodically you will hear kids. You are correct again; we do have a couple of trees that are in partial view of our beautiful lake. According to the Shoreline... More

I had not been at Margate for many years, but now 3rd generation returning. We stayed for 2 nights starting Labor Day. Stayed in Lake House, parking level, facing lake. Great sunset view over lake. Beach area is cleaned each morning, there is shade under trees, plenty of seating, boat dock. Indoor pool large, clean, well maintained. Only complaint is... More

Our reservations were for 3 separate rooms, 3 couples, from August 18 - 22, 2014. It was the first experience staying at The Margate. Overall very good rating. I left a note with the General Manager at checkout to suggest a change in the hotel policy and guest access to the workout room above the indoor pool area. There is... More

I have been to the Margate twice within the last few years. We stayed in the lake house this time...the main building. We had a beautiful view of the lake. There are more then enough chairs for all to use. The gazebo with the restaurant was very convenient for drinks and lunch. We ate there for dinner the first night... More

This was recommended by a colleague. Great location - loved the lake and gazebo. Kids loved paddle boarding and the free snow cones. Lakeside room with great views. A very relaxing and enjoyable vacation with our granddaughters (11,10 and 5). Room was a little tight with 5 of us - very nostalgic looking hotel. Very clean and all our needs... More
