Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

Argent was a great overnight stop and our base for exploring Rotorua. Not only was the room clean and comfortable but it had so many ammenities, including a kitchenette and satellite TV. The owner was so friendly and helpful, even offering to drive us to dinner so we could have a few drinks. Wish we had planned to stay longer....

Great motel, modern, clean, spacious and tidy. Comfortable bed, unlimited wifi and the best possible customer service. Some road noise with trucks at night- be sure to close those double glazed windows!

Expectations for motels are generally not high but when I arrived at Argent all of that changed. It has large rooms that are quiet, modern and well supplied for all needs. Very new and clean with a convenient laundry facility as well. This is a very well maintained and managed motel and I highly recommend it.

Clean, new and everything you could want. Even a makeup remover face washer. Bed is to die for. So comfy. Only problem is road noise. But minimal. It's on a main road and about a hour to the Glow Worm Caves. Lovely facilities, but continental breakfast is the only breakfast available for $14. It was nice though. If you need...

Terrific quality, modern and well appointed room. But the stand out here was the excellent customer service. It doesn't take much extra effort to provide excellent service but you have to create the culture in your staff, and these guys have got it right. Really positive experience.

Stayed a night in our way down New Zealand. The staff were very friendly, and our two rooms excellent. Clean, modern and spacious. Tea and coffee with fresh milk a bonus. Easy to find as on state highway 1 and a short drive from the city centre. Thanks for a smooth stay!
