Hubby and I went for a wedding and stayed Thurs and Fri nights. We stayed in the building across the street in a renovated room. We had 2 double beds, it was definitely roomy and pleasant to stay in. The windows slid open which was nice so we could get fresh air. The shower was clean and everything worked fine.... More

Spent s night here while attending a show at the NH Pavilion and despite their somewhat strange "pay in advance" policy our room was nice (at the inn) and staff was accommodating. Good continental breakfast and quiet setting even during a fairly busy early fall weekend. Room was spotless and recently renovated. A good place to stay near Laconia/Gilford and... More

The room was clean but the furniture was very dated. The bathroom fixtures were 60's vintage and the showers poured more water out in 5 min. than I use at home in a day. There were no "green" fixtures. The hallway carpeting was old and stained and the external woodwork on the buildings was cracked and had chipped paint. There... More

Booked 2 weeks in advance. Arrived to be sent across a busy road to a building marked "INN" not Margate Inn - tricky. Looked like a old motel Margate bought for overflow rooms. Eight bags, 2 seniors & no elevator or porter. We were never advised of this situation but were told by the rooms manager to look at their... More

We were there a couple weekends ago for a destination wedding. We stayed across the street in the building not on the lake waterfront. Rooms were dirty around the edges , maid service didn't come the first day and on the second day I had to go down the hall and ask her to come up and clean our room.... More

This was our fifth year of staying at The Margate and my husband and I both felt it had gotten run down. The staff is very nice and you can't beat the location but the rooms are damp and have a smell of mildew. When I called the front desk they said that is just how the lake view rooms... More

We stayed here during a wedding. We had to stay 2 nights. I recommend staying across the street at the Inn. It is part of the Margate but a short walk to the beach. The rooms have just been renovated at the Inn. They were clean and large. You also save about 100 dollars a night. The drinks were good... More

Stayed here for a weekend as was participating in the Timberman triathlon. Rooms were pretty run down. The location was nice with the lake nearby. The hotel is not for international travelers or people without a car. The check in was not until 4pm (which is fine) but if you get dropped off at the hotel ie/ if you had... More
