Outstanding service from staff, nothing was a problem, even gave me a lift to the hospital where my course was being held! Room was beautifully appointed & very quiet, absolutely no noise from the traffic or other guests. I would definitely stay here again

Really nice place with friendly staff and large, very clean rooms. Good wifi connection and sky tv. Only downside is that there is no shampoo and conditioner so bring your own, but otherwise they supplied good quality toiletries. It is walkable to the town centre via the lake and park if you are up for it - makes a very... More

My husband and I stayed at Argent Motor Lodge for 3 nights. We found the room very clean with loads of space. The owners are very nice and didn't hesitate to suggest activities and local restaurants for us to try.

Very clean room with comfortable bed. Good TVs, Wifi a bit slow and heat pump made a ticking noise. Lighting in lounge poor for reading. Pleasant efficient staff. This is a very well run motor lodge handy to CBD, hospital and Hamilton south.

Nice clean tidy room with a very comfortable bed. Very friendly and helpful service from the manager. Even though the motel location is near a busy road and right next door to the hospital we didn't hear a thing. They had a promotional free breakfast with the stay if you booked directly through the motel. Definitely would recommend.

Argent was one of the best accommodations we have stayed in during our two weeks trip. The receptionists were friendly and helpful. The room is spacious and well maintained. Kitchenette is well equipped. The bathroom is big and the kids enjoyed their bubble bath in the bath tub. Highly recommended if anyone is staying over in Hamilton.

We booked the Argent Motor Lodge as a place to stay after doing the 5-hour Black Abyss experience in Waitomo. We were going to be heading to Coromandel Peninsula the day after and didn't want a long drive on dark or unfamiliar roads. We got in around 6:30 and since we were still cold and exhausted from the cave tour,... More
