I stayed here with several other colleagues while attending a 3 day course at the hospital. The service from the moment of our late night arrival was exceptional and welcoming. Rooms are modern, spotless, have SkyTV and the beds are extremely comfy, especially after a long day. The location is very convenient, a 5min walk up to the hospital and less than 10min cab ride into town. Will definitely return and highly recommended this place.

Hi Kim. So nice to hear from you - we are really excited to know that you really enjoyed your stay with us. Our rooms are put together with our guests in mind. We LOVE that we have beds that feel like you are sleeping on clouds. We are really happy that we are close to town, but not in the thick of it all. But most of all we know that its the little things that make the difference and having you arrive late was no trouble at all. We were just really pleased to have you arrive safe and sound! Thank you for staying with us - we really look forward to seeing you again sometime.

I recently stayed at the Argent Motor Lodge whilst working in Waikato Hospital. I was greeted by Clare, who was so welcoming and proud of this lovely accommodation. I can see why. The rooms are newly appointed, extremely comfortable and beautifully finished.
Whilst my stay was short, I was very happy to book my next stay with Clare and Richard. They are wonderful hosts.

Hi there Medicineman807! It is so great to know how much you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you so much for posting your review. We, like you, think that our location is pretty great. Close enough to be able to get to all of the important parts of the city - without having to be in the middle of it all. We are really pleased to know that you found our apartments to be clean, modern and comfortable. We really do strive for this and our staff hold themselves to such high standards. Thanks again for the review. Hope to have you back with us!

I felt incredibly welcomed and relaxed immediately I arrived at the Argent Motor Lodge.
The room was spacious, warm, quiet, and comfortable. It had the feel of a brand new house. It had all the amenities I needed; Spacious writing desk, couch, kitchenette, and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. I awoke refreshed, energized, and ready for my interview. I would highly recommend this accommodation to all.

Hi Timothy. WOW - thank you! Your review of us is just wonderful and we cannot thank you enough for your kind words. It was really nice to have you stay with us. We always like to think that our rooms are set our really well - but its when we get feedback like yours that we really feel pleased with how they are. Our writing desks, coffee tables and couches were custom built just for us. Our beds were chosen after hours of research - because at the end of the day - we sell sleep! And we work really hard to keep everything as new as it can possibly be for as long as it can be. Thank you for noticing, thanks for staying ! See you again sometime.

Hands-down one of the best places I've stayed. Warm, welcoming & helpful owners who instantly made you feel like an old friend. The rooms are impeccable & clean. Possibly the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever stayed in. This will be our preferred accommodation option when we visit Hamilton & I will happily recommend to other. Thank you!

I regularly visit Hamilton on business and I'm usually disappointed in the motels I have stayed in to date. A work collegue recommended the Argent Motor Lodge and it is by far the best motel I have stayed in Hamilton. The owners couldn't be helpful enough and the rooms are beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. The windows are double glazed and this would have to be one of the quietest motels I have stayed in. I really can't find fault with the Argent and would recommend it to anyone visiting Hamilton.
