We stayed at the Argent Motel for one night. Everything was great starting with the very warm and genuine welcome from Graeme. Our room was large and comfortable. A small kitchenette had basic requirements including a microwave oven. The quality plunger coffee, fresh milk and tasty shortbread biscuits were appreciated after a long day of travelling. The bathroom was modern...

This place is faultless. We arrived to a super friendly smile and wonderful service. The rooms are so spacious and extremely clean. Bathrooms are really nicely appointed and the bed was super comfortable. We had a continental breakfast included with our booking, it was the best continental breakfast ever ... fresh fruit, yummy muesli and the most delicious yoghurt. I...

Needed a place to crash after a looong flight to Auckland. We drove another hour south to get closer to the next days activities. Found this motor lodge and couldn't have been happier. Large clean rooms with comfortable beds and friendly staff.

Very nice rooms. The room we booked was actually a lot larger than I had expected for the price. Very friendly staff, nice location, free wi-fi, decent price! When we arrived to check into our hotel, we knew we were a least 3 hours to early. The lady at the front desk said she could ask the cleaning ladies to...

Spent just one night, and found this lodge to be comfortable and excellent value for money. Graeme, the manager, was so helpful and informative. We used the meal delivery service for dinner and breakfast, and it worked perfectly for us. What impressed us was the superb noise insulation; we had fellow guests below and on either side of us, but...

Booked the Argent as it was the highest ranked on Trip Advisor and it didn't disappoint. Excellent service and great dinner and breakfast recommendations. Room was spacious, clean and brand new. Heaps of amenities and good quality at that. This is my new go to place to stay in Hamilton now - especially if you need to be around Waikato...

We just needed a room for 1 night as we headed south. This was amazing. It was very modern, quite new and spotless! Lovely spacious bathroom with shower. It was right on the main road but was totally quiet. And the town of Hamilton was so beautiful and quaint. Lots of great places close by for dinner. My only complaint...

Very comfortable - everything you need is provided - very friendly and helpful staff - we stayed twice in a week. Hot water ran out for the all units the first time but owner was apologetic and on to it immediately - all fine on second stay.

From the time I booked this motel I had the feeling we would be impressed. At reception we were greeted by a young lady who treated us as though we were staying for a week. She took us up to our room, explained everything to us and even recommended good places to eat and those which home delivered. On her...

Stayed here recently and found the hosts to be thoroughly helpful in every respect. Graham showed me the room walked me through how it worked and booked a taxi for me to head down town for a feed. The hospital is very close and this place is beautifully set up for longer term stays, a well appointed kitchenette with cook...
