We stayed at the Argent on our way from the Waitomo Caves to Hobbiton in mid July. It was an absolute delight. The room was immaculate and beautifully designed. The owners made us feel right at home, taking us personally up to the room and showing us each amenity. Other reviewers have mentioned that there is traffic noise, but we... More

I have stayed here on a couple of occasions before but it's been 12 months since I was last here. It was great to see that the standard is still as high. The beds are very comfortable, they have "proper milk" and earl Gray tea bags small but significant things. The owners were away when I visited but the welcome... More

We stayed at the Argent Motor Lodge so that we were close to Hobbiton and the Waitomo Caves.The apartment we stayed in was well furnished and spotlessly clean, and had the bonus of two TVs. Despite the constant rain, we were warm and very comfortable. The owners, Clare and Richard were genuinely interested in making sure that our stay was... More

I stayed at Argent Motor Lodge for three weeks due to relocation of my work. The accommodation was comfortable and very clean. The studio was quiet with good sound insulation despite being on a busy road. The owners were really friendly, helpful and welcoming. I would definitely recommend Argent to others.

I have stayed in many motels/hotels over the years and I can honestly say the Argent is the best. The rooms are a generous size, very clean, have comfortable beds, large TV's with all the channels you would want, our room had... More

What a great place to stay whilst in Hamilton, everything about the Argent is perfect! The rooms are spacious super clean with all the modern amenities and the TV had soooo many channels to select from. I will be staying here from now on, better not rave too much about it because I might not get a booking next trip... More

This is by far the best Motel I have ever stayed in. Amazing facilities. Everything is modern and clean... from entrance door, to bathroom, to bed, lighting etc. Bathroom are truly as great as they look on the photos ( I wish I would have such a nice bathroom at home). The room servicing is like in a hotel, i.e.... More
