The Argent motor lodge was a perfect place to stay.We had to make an urgent journey to Hamilton as our grandaughter had an accident and was in Waikato Hospital..There was no problem booking a room ,which was top class..Later ,more family were to arrive and a second room was immediately made available..Richard and Clare were very helpful and caring..Our rooms were top class...Immaculate ,,Will be recommending this Motor Lodge to our friends and family..

The service provided by Richard and Clare is outstanding. As a travel agent I have stayed in hundreds of properties but never had such attentive hosts. We stayed for the location to the hospital and had to leave our Mum there for a few extra days and their compassion and help they gave Mum was wonderful. The rooms are immaculate and well appointed. Some very nice touches like a special flannel for taking off make-up. Will be recommending to everyone I know.

We stayed here for one night mid-week. The accommodation was very nice - new, clean & properly maintained. The motel owners are particularly friendly & welcoming. They gave advice on sites & restaurant recommendations. Made it much easier for those travelling for a first-time to Hamilton. The location is a quick drive to the CBD, where there is a huge range of restaurants.

Good quality, comfortable rooms, perfectly clean and a unique combination of service showing warmth, friendliness and professionalism during a tough time with a family member in hospital. I can not say enough about the helpful attitude of the team here.

Convenient location to the hospital and very easy to get to and from the airport. Lovely service, even after playing netball Clare ;-). Comfortable and well appointed rooms. Should I need to travel back for business at any stage I would be happy to stay again.

I would love to give a bad review and keep this gem to myself so I could guarantee a booking but I can't. Richard and Clare are the friendliest motel users in the country. The property and rooms are immaculate and they go above and beyond on service and comfort. When I stay here on business, they make me feel like the most important person in the complex and I know others feel like that too. I travel all over New Zealand for business and staying in motels is a drag for me, but I always look forward to staying here. Thank you both for your kind and generous hospitality.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms here, just get on and book!
