We stayed at this motel for 2 nights in a row while exploring Hamilton. Kind and caring owners (husband & wife). Upon arrival, we got free tasty milk (whoo! hoo!). Rooms are new, stylish and comfortable. Owners went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience. Close to everything -supermarkets, -beautiful lake with a trail around it... More

The staff are so welcoming and friendly like everyone says. One of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on. Nice little touches like faint aromatherapy smell on the towels. This will be my place to stay in Hamilton from now on.

I tell you now, you will not receive friendlier service than what you get at Argent. It's a husband and wife team, who pull out all the stops to make sure you have a great stay. Location? Great. 200m from the hospital (the reason we stayed there); 10 mins max drive to everything you need to see in Hamilton. New,... More

I have stayed in a number of motor lodges in Hamilton and Argent is definitely my favorite. My latest trip to Hamilton was going to be six weeks so I really wanted a place that was spacious, well located, and comfortable. The Argent delivered in all these areas. I stayed in the one bedroom apartment for most of my trip.... More

I stay at a lot of places - so a great place really stands out. Our warm and welcoming hosts Richard and Clare made sure we had every need met. Accommodation is modern, clean and extremely well maintained. It's a pleasure to recommend this to others looking for accommodation in Hamilton.

Clare and Richard were fantastic. We had suites 3 and 3A as there were 4 of us and it is perhaps the cleanest hotel or motel I have ever stayed in and I have travelled very widely around the world. They also suggested a takeaway restaurant I think called Scoff and they delivered a sumptious meal to us as we... More

Our family stayed in April 2015 over Easter weekend in three separate rooms, and was very happy with our stay. Next time we come back to Hamilton, we’d definitely like to stay here. Thanks again Clare for your wonderful hospitality and accommodations. We had a party ranging from preschoolers to senior citizens, both from NZ and out of the country.... More

I enjoyed a short stopover in Hamilton and the Argent was the perfect option as it was close to my place of work and has onsite parking available. I usually stay at the larger hotel chains when I travel, however my stay here was a very pleasant change. The staff were welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. I stayed... More

I had one client to see in Hamilton, I used Trip advisor to assist me in finding suitable comfortable accomodation for the night. Argent had great reviews and it didn't dissapoint, lovely owners, spotlessly clean room, comfortable and warm, attention to detail like a pillow menu. I needed some paperwork printed, signed and witnessed and scanned and emailed to my... More

On reading other reviewers comments we booked a studio here for a visit To waikato hospital. We were not disappointed. The spacious unit was immaculate with a very comfortable bed and easy walkin shower. We were greeted in a very Friendly manner with willing help to transport our luggage upstairs. The close proximity to the hospital was a bonus and... More
