Argent is excellent. The staff greeting was friendly and made us feel very welcome. Room was great plenty of space and a very comfortable bed. It is close to take away outlets and only a short drive to the CBD. would highky recommend it.

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. Highly recommend this property, and we will definitely stay again when next in...

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!

Rooms very clean and guess what the bed was perfect. Firm but...

We booked this motel in southern Hamilton as we wanted to drive to Waitomo next day and it turned out to be terrific. It looked fairly new and in good condition and our apartment (No.8) had large rooms with a door opening from the living room to a small space outside - no view but private, and lovely to have...

We stayed at Argent on 5&6 April. What a lovely place. Clean and spacious and such lovely staff. The managers explained everything we needed and were very friendly. The rooms are really quiet, despite the busy road. We will definitely stay here again when we are in Hamilton.

I love this motel! It's spotlessly clean and super comfortable. Great for me for business when I work at the Waikato hospital. I also stay here for pleasure. Grahame is always friendly and gives such a lovely welcome- feels like home. Great kitchen, beautiful bathroom and the beds are extra comfy. Modern and sleek- I love this place!
