We stayed only one night but the customer service was outstanding even being driven into town by our host in the evening so that we didn't have to fuss with car parking and finding our way in an unfamiliar city. Our unit was beautiful, bright, modern and clean and the bed was very comfortable. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at the Argent Motor Lodge and couldn't fault it in any way - quiet, exceptionally clean, very comfortable, very generous breakfasts and service above and beyond anything we have experienced previously at any motel. We would not hesitate to recommend it, especially if the services of the hospital, which is adjacent, were required.

With a baby in the special baby care ward and being from out of town, this motor lodge was an awesome place to come back to each day!

My sister and I stayed overnight at the superb Argent Motor Lodge. The accommodation was warm, comfortable, well appointed and spotlessly clean and the beds very comfortable.

What a great little hotel/lodge. The rooms are spotlessly clean, well sized and apportioned with great amenities. The hospitality from the staff is also refreshing and a pleasure to deal with. The location, (near the hospital) whilst not ideal, is manageable. Graham courteously drove us into town at no charge as well, which was a surprisingly fantastic gesture. If you're... More

We had a wonderful stay thanks to Graham and his team. They were so helpful and the rooms were very clean and well maintained.
