Reviewed 20 January 2016

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.

Reviewed 8 January 2016

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. The location of the motor lodge is a short drive into the main part of town where most of the restaurants and cafes are. Would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend the Argent Motor Lodge to...

Brand new with lovely rooms and great fit out. We were in one of the disabled rooms with plenty of space, full kitchenette, good selection of Sky channels. Rooms very quiet despite being close to the road. Even a pillow menu! Short drive to town

The Argent was clean, quiet and comfortable! Loved having breakfast brought to us each morning. Graham was very helpful as well. Thanks!! Very conveniently located as well. The rooms were large enough for the two of us and our young adult daughter. We'd book again if we're ever in the area again.

If you are happy to stay outside the cbd then look at no other motels. I've had smaller and less well appointed apartments than our rooms in this lodge. Stunning bathroom. Fully equipped kitchen and a dining table. Comfortable lounge area and bedroom. No road noise at night but you are aware if the hospital helicopter comes by for obvious...

Great location close to Waikato hospital and near the city. The rooms are well equipped, modern and spacious. Despite being located on a main road the rooms were nice and quiet.
