We booked into the Argent at very short notice to assist our son and daughter in law whose 23 month son (our grandson) was admitted into Waikato hospital to treat an infection. We were able to book 2 units side by side with a shared entry which was perfect for our situation. The facilities are modern, clean and well maintained. We were warmly welcomed and nothing was too much bother. We would not hesitate staying here again. Many thanks to Graeme and his staff

Excellent accommodation. Super clean, modern, comfortable unit. Fabulous shower. Great small kitchen with all the necessities. Best nights sleep ever in a motel/hotel on a super comfy bed… I wanted to take it home ;-) Looking forward to our return visit. Thanks so much.

Was booked into the Argent by waikato hospital as I required treatment that did not allow me to drive.As I was from out of town the Argent was perfect as it backs onto hospital property. We were given a warm friendly welcome and the room was clean and perfect for a stay for my purpose. The in room facilities were well maintained and perfect for self catering during our stay. AAAAA±+++

I've just stayed during the last six working weeks at Argent Motor Lodge. It became a "home away from home": the friendly welcome and interested helpful attitude of the host and owner, the quiet rooms (internal and external noises - double glass windows!despite the immediate proximity of busy Waikato Hospital) ; the pleasant atmosphere in the modern rooms; the high standard of the appliances in bathroom and kitchen - to mention a few. Argent is now one of my personal "top three" motels throughout NZ.

My husband & I stayed overnight here last week. Medical tests meant being in Hamilton for two days. The Argent is a well run motor lodge thanks to Graeme & his team. Clean, well equipped & we especially liked the bedroom separated from the lounge & kitchen. Would definitely stay here again & recommend to friends & family.
