We were there for the 2nd time at a convention, and the place is amazing. The room was lovely, the bed was very comfortable, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The resort is situated next to a beautiful lake and gorgeous scenery, very relaxing. The outdoor beach bar is awesome, serving drinks and food (The Margate Burger is delicious!).... More

Attended MISTI-Con 2015 at the Margate, 5/20-5/25/2015. The staff is friendly, courteous, professional and ever-helpful, and the facilities are thoroughly enjoyable. It was fun having the Beach Bar open, and if we got too chilly in the breeze off the lake, we could warm up in the hot tub. My second convention at the Margate; won't be the last. Thanks,... More

This was another great stay at the Margate. I stayed here back in May of 2013, and so many renovations have been completed. The beds were seriously super comfortable! They have a fridge in every room, but not the tiny dorm sized, it is up a size from that which was great. The pool was lovely. The staff was friendly... More

I was in town for a convention. Not only was the staff accommodating, but they were involved and upbeat. The resort is on the lake, with a mini beach and an expansive lawn. It gives a feeling of being its own separate space, while still being within walking distance of the community. The rooms were clean, and the housekeeping staff... More

This hotel is wonderful! It's walking distance from restaurants and a supermarket, and a short drive from downtown Laconia. But you don't even have to leave the facility! They have a bar and a wonderful restaurant. I highly recommend their warm breakfast. We were there for a Harry Potter convention. The hotel is our home away from home when we're... More

I stayed at the Margate last weekend for a convention. It's got a wonderful little beach with an awesome bar and is conveniently located across the street from a grocery store and drugstore. The bed was firm but not hard (I am particular about beds and I was happy) and the rooms were large by New England standards. The HVAC... More

Having returned for the third time for a convention, I can only say that the experience gets better. The staff is always friendly and welcoming. The facility is clean and comfortable. Each return has felt like coming home. Thank you for making us feel we are home. See you in 2017.

I stayed at the Margate during a convention. It was a great stay. The hotel itself is in a beautifully scenic spot with a lake, beach, and plenty of open space. The rooms are comfy and fairly spacious. The food was great and eating lunch or dinner down at the beach bar was a great experience. The staff here are... More

The Margate and it's staff always strive to provide the highest possible levels of service. We had amazing experiences with their maintenance people, bar tenders, and maid service. They are top notch.

The Margate Resort in Laconia NH is a wonderful resort on the lake. The amenities are great, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The accommodations, restaurant, bars and pool are very clean and easily accessible. We have stayed at The Margate Resort twice because they have hosted a large scale Harry Potter conference which was done with professionalism... More
