Fabulous location and accommodation. We stayed two nights on the 4th & 5th of Feb 2023. We wanted some where close to Waikato Hospital to visit my mother who had been admitted to the hospital. As you can appreciate visiting a loved one when you are from out of town can be stressful. However, the service from the moment we booked directly with them to the moment we arrived and were greeted was faultless and this in itself helped make our stay stress free. The room we booked was spacious and clean and modern. There were a selection of hot drinks we could make and lovely toiletries to use. The towels were nice and fluffy. There was a folder of information about the accommodation, services and eating places near by. There was even a pillow menu - while we didn't use this I was impressed that this was offered. We were given a map of the hospital and showed how to get there on foot if we were interested, which we were. It was much quicker to walk than to get in the car and drive to the parking building at the hospital. We would highly recommend Argent Motor Lodge for cleanliness, fabulous service and fantastic location.

Hotel's Favourite
Really lovely motel with a friendly manager. Room was nice and modern and well equipped with very high quality soaps etc. Curtains were great and did a very good job at blocking out the light. I have no idea what people were complaining about in other reviews re the noise from the roads, as we heard nothing and had a great night's sleep. The bed was very comfy and the linen nice and crisp. Our son absolutely loved it here and keeps asking when we are going back! Highly recommend.

Excellent front start to finish. Booking was easy, very polite and very helpful on the phone. I was staying with my son, no problem to change the king bed to singles, I requested a shower stool, no issues. Room was spotless, beds very comfy. I would totally stay here again and will be telling my friends. Thankyou Argent Motor Lodge.

We were greeted by Lesley, the stand in manager, and she made us welcome from the start. Good sized apartment and lots of cooking facilities if you needed them. Took advantage of the washing and drying facilities and was pleasantly surprised when she gave us the money for them. Not many walkable eating places but plenty an easy drive away. Always find it annoying when the sink plug didn’t hold the water and my wife observed there was nowhere to dry her hair in front of the mirror apart from in the bathroom. Final observation is we didn’t get the shower having no cubicle door. Overall a very enjoyable stay

We stayed there in a one bedroom apartment for 4 nights. Location was great being very close to the city centre. Graham the owner and his staff were super helpful and friendly. The room was clean and tidy. Spacious and very well taken care. In-room facilities were good. Appliances used were all good ones and maintained well. Bathroom was spacious and toiletries supplied were very good. Even though we did not need housekeeping everyday, toiletries and tea/coffee supplies were not lacking, and whenever we asked, Graham and the staff made us feel very welcome. Overall, a great stay there and we would recommend Argent Motor Lodge to anyone.

I enjoyed staying in this motel for a few days this month. Although it is not convenient for someone who does not have private transportation, Uber is cheap and costs less than 10 dollars from the Intercity bus stop to the motel. The rooms are large, clean and well serviced. They also have air conditioning and adequate cooking facilities.

We stayed at the Argent Motor Lodge for a little over a week. We needed some special health accommodations for our daughter. The owner/manager of the hotel was incredible. He made sure everything was done right and as needed. It felt as if we had made a fried. The motel is very clean, and the staff is friendly and very helpful. I highly recommend it.

I visited Hamilton specifically to visit the wonderful, Hamilton Gardens. This motel is located nearby, with just a short 5 minute drive away. The day had been very hot, so I really appreciated that the staff had already put my room’s air conditioning on, prior to my arrival. The room, kitchen area, and bathroom were very clean and “fresh”. Everything was kept to a high standard. The owner was very helpful with information and meal suggestions. The breakfast was excellent. I would highly recommend staying here. Thanks for making my stay in Hamilton, very pleasant!

I have not stayed in motel for all my overseas holiday. When i was searching for hotels in Hamilton, i could not find any 4-5 stars hotel that i was looking for, instead, many motels popped up in my search result. I decided to book Argent Motor Lodge after reading the reviews in Booking.com website. Before my trip, i was mentally preparing myself that the room is going to be small and uncomfortable. When i arrived, i was greeted by friendly and helpful Graeme who offered to carry my luggage up to my room, which is located on the 2nd level. The moment i entered the room, i was pleasantly surprised by how spacious, clean and well-maintained the room is. I have booked a 1-bedroom which comes with a double sofa bed in the living room and another double bed in the bedroom. Both the living and bedroom comes with a flat screen TV with cable channels. The kitchenette area comes with the necessary utensils and cutleries that you need should you decide to do simple cooking. The only setback is the shower area is pretty slippery when it's wet and there's no anti-slip mat provided. Also, nearby the lodge only has a small eateries known as "Roast Kitchen" which sells roast chicken and beef for takeaway. Beside it is a minimart. Hence, there is not much choices for food. Overall, i am still very satisfied with the motel. It definitely exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend to friends who are travelling to Hamilton.
