Argent Motor Lodge has very modern and well designed rooms with good quality furnishings. Our room was spacious, very clean and comfortable, with a large bed. The bathroom and shower were larger and better quality than is normally found in a New Zealand motel. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. One of the best New Zealand motel experiences we...

Thank you to Clare for her warm welcome. My king bed room was spacious, stylish and very comfortable. I can say that the photos on the website are true to what you will find at Argent Motor Lodge, but they don't tell you about the warmth of the owners, nor the little touches that make you feel special. I have... More

We stayed for one night in a king bed room. The room was clean and well equipped with a nice king bed. The room was a bit noisy but we slept well nevertheless. The staff was very friendly. We found parking to be a bit difficult. All in all it was a good stay and we would stay again.

My friend and I had looked online for our first stay in our trip to New Zealand, and wanted something close to everything but giving us a head start down island. We had no sense of time, and were dazed and confused with the new country, the Argent Motor Lodge was outstanding. We were greeted with such kindness and willingness... More

Firstly, I have worked in 4 international 5 star hotels. We were welcomed at checkin by staff who knew all about our booking. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The facilities were very modern and done out exceptionally well. Love the fact that me, a six foot guy, can fit my whole body in the bath! It is located... More

The owners are very nice and welcoming to guests. Clare showed the room and explained everything about the room and it was very lovely and felt nice to her personally. I and my mother enter a room and we just said "wow" That was very clean and tidy :) I think here is the best motel ever in New Zealand

I travel a lot. I mean a lot. So i have been seen many motels, hotels and hostels around the world. I never got so good service than now. I came from hospital because of car accident and my leg didn't work well. They pick me from hospital and took me to their lovely Argent Motor Motel. They help me... More

Oh, TripAdvisor, thank you. I think Americans are rightly wary of anything with the words "motor lodge" in the name, but this was really a great little place. The staff was *incredibly* friendly, warm, and helpful, the rooms were amply sized, and the bathrooms, though utilitarian, were very clean. For the money, this was excellent value. Parking was a bit... More

Thank you jennetj623 for your fantastic review of your stay with us here at Argent Motor Lodge.

The owners, Richard and Clare, are very friendly and welcoming, and bring a real personal touch to your stay. Clare offered some great suggestions for where to eat in town, and also pointed me in the direction of a yummy takeaway which also delivers to Argent, which was great when I was having a very lazy second night! The rooms... More
