I have been to the Shalimar many times and will continue to come back. Both family owned and oriented, the staff make you feel like one of their own as soon as you walk through the door. The rooms and amenities are clean, comfortable and spacious. One of our favorite parts of the Shalimar is the lobster house and Peter's bar--great food, excellent service and a comfortable atmosphere. Don't forget to try karaoke night out!

Not a bad place to stay..I consider it more of a motel than a "resort" Some rooms are nicer than others. You can access the first floor rooms from the parking lot..like a motel..the pool is decent and the restaurant is pretty good. they have karioke on the weekends in the lounge. The breakfast is plain..bagels, donuts, coffee, etc..no real breakfast items like a Hampton Inn even thou the prices are about the same. The Hampton is much nicer for the price, we stayed here instead for the onsite restaurant and lounge.

Shalimar resort is great. Family owned hotel, clean, nice rooms, really comfortable beds, nice new bedding. Staff are friendly and informative. We have visited the Shalimar many times, both in the winter and summer, always a great time. The restaurant has great food, continental breakfast is included. Karaoke on weekend nights is fun. My husband and I love this place, our grandkids always ask to go back to "the resort". Nice indoor pool, hot tub, gym and game room. Free internet access, computer available for guests, nice lake across the street. Just a short drive to the outlets.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice, we prefer the first floor lake side.

Birthday present from my daughter & her family; a mom & daughter weekend away. Wanted something w/ a pool; hot tub; restaurant & close to shopping outlets.The Shalimar Resort was wonderful! Clean rooms; nice big comforters (not thin blanket & bedspread like some); lots of pillows & towels; hair dryer (us females like this); shampoo etc.; refrigerator; coffee maker (or tea); flat screen TV; ceiling fan; free Wi-Fi . Need a corkscrew just ask. They have a pool; hot tub; sauna; tanning; shower/changing room; & gym w/ TVs; clean & we enjoyed it all. They also have a pool table/ping pong room. The restaurant has fantastic food; so many choices. We had Seafood casserole; absolutely delicious. Sunday Brunch was awesome. Registered quests get a buy 1 get 1 free coupon for dinner and Sunday brunch. The best part is the wonderful staff in both the hotel and the restaurant. Thank you to everyone! We will be back in January for another mom & daughter weekend for my daughters birthday.

My wife and I stayed here about 7 years ago to visit some relatives in New Hampshire, so with all of the buzz about the new renovations we decided to give it another shot. And we were glad we did! The staff, which is all family run, clearly has been keeping up with the place...new rooms are immaculate, nice big flat screen TVs, new white bedding and down comforters, several bathroom amenities, free Wi-Fi, and excellent maid service. We showed up on a Friday and left Sunday, so we had the opportunity to try out the restaurant. Honestly, I couldn't have been more pleased. I shared lobster with my wife Friday, had prime rib Saturday, and an amazing brunch on Sunday before we hit the road...and did I mention the room came with a free meal each night? Great staff, great location, great price, overall great experience. As a frequent traveler around New England, I would recommend the Shalimar Resort to anyone looking to spend time some quality time in central New Hampshire.

The Shalimar is showing its age. The room was clean enough. price was good. We requested a quiet second floor room. Were given a 1st floor immediately adjacent to the pool. the game room required each item such as the pool table to be paid for with change. Beach was across a busy street from the rooms. Not safe for children. The restaurant was not open during our visit. There were many acceptable eating alternatives within a short drive. Would do it again for the price...

Room Tip: double-check that you get the room requested
