A man arrested after an 11-hour stand-off with armed police in Hamilton is due to appear in court.

Police had gone to a house in the suburb of Glenview on Friday morning to arrest the man for "serious" offences, but retreated to call for armed backup after an "exchange" occurred.

The stand-off ended peacefully shortly before 11pm when police entered the house and made the arrest.

The man will appear in Hamilton District Court on Saturday.
