5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed a week here and found that it was more enjoyable than staying at an expensive hotel. For a motor lodge, you usually don't find hospitality and modern, immaculate rooms. Clare and Richard are very hospitable to the point that we felt like we would miss them when we go. Definitly be back

Our apartment was immaculate, the bed and linen were of top quality, the cleanliness and warmth of the rooms excellent. Convenient off street parking was available in the grounds of the... More

Myself and elderly mum, who has trouble getting around, stayed while my father underwent surgery at the very nearby Waikato Hospital. We needed two nights at short notice, but only one room that would suit our needs was available (middle of school holidays). We secured the room for one night (thinking we may have to find somewhere else the next... More

Had the pleasure of staying two nights at The Argent during a business trip to Hamilton. Clare and Richard were so accommodating and helpful. The room was superb - comfortable bed, sound proof room, warm and clean understated decor. I will be back!

Earlier in September my recently retired husband underwent major heart surgery at Waikato Hospital. As we do not live in Hamilton I needed to be accommodated close by and couldn't have been happier with the Studio Super King room at the Argent Motor Lodge. It was tastefully decorated with modern tiled bathroom, well-equipped kitchenette, heat pump and most importantly a... More

We arrived at Argent Motor Lodge late at night, having driven up from Taranaki, to be with our elderly father who had been airlifted from Taranaki Base hospital. Clare and Richard went the extra mile for us and we thank them very much for their amazing thoughtfulness and warm hospitality. As dad's condition deteriorated and more family members arrived Clare... More

Excellently run by Clare and Richard, certainly one of the best motels I have stayed in . As a return visitor, my wife and I were very warmly welcomed and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Clearly the Motel is ideal for Waikato Hospital visitors and patients. I will be having many months in the future being treated at... More

Richard and Claire were amazing! We were staying as a family member was in hospital and Claire was always one step ahead with what we needed - extra night accommodation, etc. Rooms were tidy and well equipped. Would definitely recommend it.
