Stayed here overnight on a road trip. Accommodation is very comfortable and the owners go above and beyond to ensure guests are comfortable. We had an issue with the air con which turned out to be our fault. One of the owners came over late at night, showed me what I was doing wrong and waited until the heating kicked... More

Argent motel was outstanding. Stayed 2 nights in a 2 bed unit. Perfect for our needs with a kitchenette and very large bath ( I nearly drowned it was so big). This place is spotlessly clean and staff very friendly and helpful. The motel is in a busy road, (as are most motels) with a road at the front and... More

Everything we read about Argent Motor Lodge is true. We had a really good experience. The managers are excellent - friendly and helpful. The room was great - clean, spacious, high quality bed linen, very comfortable for an overnight stay. We were heading to the airport but couldn't face staying there after experiencing it once.

Room spacious, bed comfortable. Excellent bathroom. Great location, close to everything. Easy drive to Waitomo Caves. Best service we have had at a motel. The staff are cheerful, friendly and no request is a hassle for them. Stay here if you are visiting Hamilton.

We was travelling NZ and needed a spot central to the Waitomo Caves and Hobbiton so we picked Hamilton! We didn't see much of Hamilton as our days where taken up by day activities, but we ate in the city and was pleasant! Anyways... Upon arrival Richard was so helpful and sorted us out with our room and booked us... More

We surprised the kids with a night in a hotel in Hamilton and it exceeded all our expectations. We stayed in the 2 bedroom family apartment and it was amazing! The kids had their own semi contained apartment (or as they called it compartment) with shower, kitchen (no hot stuff), 3 beds and a TV - they were in little... More

I stayed here with a friend in July 2015, in a twin room. The room was fantastic - two very comfortable beds, airconditioning/heat-pump, fully equipped mini kitchen, large and very clean bathroom, area for sitting, and a tv with many channels. Wifi was an added bonus to the room. The rooms were serviced every day, even our dishes were washed... More

We stayed at the Argent Motor Lodge while in Hamilton on business recently. Spotlessly clean, well appointed rooms, fantastic beds and for a studio room very spacious. The owners were away the night we booked in but the woman in reception was very helpful. Great location if you need to be near the hospital. Unfortunately we would not stay here... More
