I thought that both the staff and the hotel accomodations were fantastic. The outdoor lounge area was nice but I felt like the bartender took a little while to wait on us because she had several friends at the bar. The beds were very comfortable and I slept like a baby. My only complaint was that there were no lounge... More

We just returned from a week at The Margate and have to say it was an absolutely wonderful vacation. We haven't vacationed on a lake in years and decided to give it a try this year. Well I have to say this week turned out to be everything that we could have wanted in a restful summer getaway. The resort... More

The rooms were clean with a friendly staff. The bar on the beach was great to sit and relax by the water. The location is close to Meadowbrook. Large indoor pool and the outdoor pool was enjoyed by the kids. I will stay there again.

Our son recently got married at the Margate. The grounds and location are fantastic! The pavilion tent for the ceremony was perfect, as was the reception tent. The ceremony and reception were held outside for about 200 people. Many of the guests stayed at the Margate. Our wedding coordinator Caroline did a great job the day before and day of... More

We stayed here for a weekend in July to go to a concert at Meadowbrook. Our room was in the Inn across the street and was very spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable too. The free breakfast was excellent and the woman who worked breakfast was very nice. We had the hot breakfast one morning and that was... More

Outside: stunning. This property is simply gorgeous. From the beach to the buildings to the landscaping, they don't miss a beat. 10/10. Inside: 1978. In some ways this is very cool - the front lobby and the dining room have an old, dark wood look to them that really made my day. Until you notice how battered everything is. Still,... More

Thank you for complimenting our lakefront property. We are constantly upgrading our overnight room, amenities, and the property in general. Just for the record, all guest rooms have been renovated 2.5 times since 1978. The last full renovation was between 2000 and 2002. The ".5" is for what we have done recently by upgrading all rooms with stainless steel refrigerators,... More

The Margate has been our family tradition for many years. The view of Paugus Bay is lovely and its really the only resort in the Laconia area. For young families its great. Indoor/Outdoor pool, beachfront, roped off swim area and shallow warmer water than the big lake. Accomodations are average but having a room on the water is very convenient... More

We stayed at the Margate twice last summer and once (so far) this summer so obviously we like it. Winnipesaukee, despite its large size has few waterfront hotels/motels and this is one of them. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Rooms, though not all new are kept quite clean as is the landscape and beach area. The outdoor on site... More

We have stayed at The Margate several times. The view of Paugus Bay from the Margates beach is lovely and relaxing. We enjoy being able to use the beach for relaxing or taking out the paddle boards and kayaks ( Margate rents those to guests). The location makes it easy to walk or take a short drive to restaurants, bank,... More
