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. We have often been told by international guests that 'Motor Lodge' in their home country means that its not somewhere you would want to stay. At Argent Motor Lodge we work really hard to make sure that our guests love their time with... More

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

We stayed in the Argent Motor Lodge at the end of a week long road trip around the North Island. Owners couldn't have been nicer and more helpful, ensuring we got settled in and helped with choosing where to go for dinner and drinks in Hamilton. My wife and I had one room and my mum and dad were in... More

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Argent again and was again made to feel right at home. Clare was so welcoming, even remembering us from last time. Always a smiling face, as so helpful and accommodating. As always the rooms were pristine, and gorgeous, the bed linen beautiful and the beds oh so comfy! The beautiful bathrooms... More

We had a great stay at Argent Motor Lodge. The staff are very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The room was very new and clean. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay to attend our daughters wedding. The motor lodge was only 15 minutes from the wedding venue and also close to town. The owners made us feel at... More
