This must be a brand new motel, as it was extremely modern. The rooms were spotless, and the staff very friendly and accommodating. It's very close to the hospital (walking distance). If I was in Hamilton for any reason I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

This motel is very clean, modern and lovely friendly owners. The rooms are large and have comfortable beds, everything in them that you need. Microwave, toaster etc. The set up is very good in the room, with a small table and chairs, wardrobe etc. Good heatpumps, if a little noisy. Main road is noisy - i was staying in unit... More

We had a wonderful stay at argent motor lodge last month. My friend and I were attending a course at Waikato hospital. Other than it being perfectly located, it was homely, friendly, clean and warm (!!). Clare and Richard were so welcoming it almost felt like we were with friends. It was quiet and comfortable, giving us ample opportunity to... More

We were in New Zealand (from UK) visiting family and touring. We stayed at the Argent on first arrival for a few days, and had absolutely no doubts about re-booking for our 2nd and 3rd stops in Hamilton (in between some touring). The welcome we received was warm and genuine, the rooms were excellent and represented very good value for... More

Claire and Richard were very accommodating when it came to our day to day needs, often at short notice. The rooms are modern, beautifully presented, decorated to a high standard and sparkling clean. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Hamilton especially if you need to be close to the hospital. Excellent value for money.

Stayed here for a night and it was truly more relaxing than I expected! The room is excellent and generous in space. It looked, felt and smelled clean!

This motel is near Waikato hospital and is a nice new complex. The location of the motel is a bit out of the city centre and I found the road it's on quite noisy so suggest you ask for a room at the back. I really liked my room which was large and nicely furnished. The owners were friendly and... More

The reviews say it all - the hosts (husband and wife team) take very seriously what they do and it shows. The service, room, hospitality second to none. I will definitely be staying here again if ever in the Hamilton area.
