We enjoyed our stay at Argent. It is convenient, friendly, helpful and beautifully serviced. There is a path beside the Lodge that leads straight up to Waikato Hospital so that you don'y have to walk along a busy road. It takes only a couple of minutes up a shady path beside a small park. The team of cleaning ladies are...

I chose to base myself in Hamilton and do day trips out to the Waitomo Caves and beaches nearby. Hamilton is not a particularly big city, and just took a chance on Argent Motor Lodge based on reviews. The motel is great - lots of good amenities and great staff that keeps the rooms clean. The sound isolation from the...

Hi there 'tsaojam', Thank you for your honest feedback, It was an oversight that we did not advise you of the necessity to move you into another room due to the separate booking that was made. It is our policy to inform guests of any room changes so we do apologise for the mix up that occured. It is good...

We stay here for one night on our way down from Auckland to Taupo. We were greeted by the very friendly manager who showed us to our room, which was large and very clean. We had a separate bedroom with a bed settee in the lounge area with well equipped kitchen and a large bathroom with a large walk in...

In all my time travelling and going to different hotels from 1 start to 5 star, this is the only hotel that had a towel dedicated for make up use and that was a big surprise. The 5 star hotels in big cities can learn a lot from such a not so small accommodation in a not so small city....

We recently stayed at this motel as a family member was in hospital next door. From the very outset the staff couldn't have been more helpful. I was going to book online but the room that we needed with two single beds appeared to be booked. I contacted the manager and explained our situation (daughter and mother in law staying...

Came down with my partner for a weekend to watch the cricket at Seddon Park nearby. Hotel was beautiful, very clean and spacious, and very central to everything. The rooms included a kitchenette, and was very well stocked and equipped. Will definitely be back next time we're in town.

We travelled as a family of four, exploring both Islands. Excellent modern, clean and comfortable accommodation. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay at the Argent Motor Lodge. We stayed at 17 different motels during our visit to NZ and all members of my family ranked this accommodation as Number 1. Highly recommended.

Well appointed and spacious rooms, spotlessly clean. We were very impressed with the place and the management. Only two areas that could be improved in my opinion, wifi was poor in our room (8a) weak and slow, it just about limped along. Also, we like a safe in the room. Although we don't carry the crown jewels on holiday with...

The rooms were brand new, clean, and comfortable, with spacious bathrooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and were always around.
