Just as nice as this side led us to believe! Super friendly, well appointed rooms, very comfortable bed. A really great base to explore Rotorua, Hobbiton, and the Waiatomo Caves with the hosts being able to provide great advice on each to boot! The choice for Hamilton!

I travel to Hamilton regularly on business and The Argent is my only choice. Traveling for work is quite lonely and not as glamorous as perceived! Clare and Richard always make me feel welcome and at home. The rooms are always faultlessly clean and comfortable. The beds are ridiculously comfortable - I always wake up disorientated and confused because I... More

We booked very late and managed to get the last room. When we arrived the welcome was exceptional. It felt like Clare was inviting you into her home. This motel is situated on the Bypass through Hamilton so traffic can be quite busy however, the way it sits back off the road seems to set it apart with wide bays... More

The owners were welcoming, friendly and delightful - a very warm and hospitable stay. Styling of rooms and comfort was excellent. Plenty of room and well thought out, large bathroom, even to the detail of a makeup facecloth (have not seen that anywhere else I've stayed except a perhaps a high-end luxury accommodation) - i was very impressed. Very very... More

Very clean, modern, and friendly! My only regret was we only stayed there one night! I was amazed with how clean and comfortable it was. The owners, very obviously care about their guests comfort! I would recommend this property to anyone staying in the area!

Wish we had of stayed at this motel for the majority of our holiday. The hosts are very warm & welcoming. Everything has been thought of at this motel, the beds are super comfy, spotlessly clean though out, nice shower and very quiet thanks to well designed rooms and double glazed windows and no noise at all from neighbouring rooms....

We stayed at the Argent for a week and it was a great choice and exceeded expectations. The rooms are tastefully decorated, quiet, clean and pleasant. This place rates really high. We tried another Hamilton hotel initially, it wasn't our cup of tea, and we were lucky that the Argent had a room available. I was having surgery, my husband... More

Was referred to Argent and they did not disappoint!! Not only was the room perfect but the owners were very welcoming. They also provided me a run down of the city and where to eat. They also provided me discounts to my next destination. Will definitely stay here again.
