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. The hosts were welcoming and thoughtful, and gave excellent advice about options for dinner. We really appreciated the offer and use of a loan umbrella, and being able to leave our vehicle in...

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. I mistakenly kept the keys from our previous motel in Taupo and asked Graham for assistance in mailing them back. Graham immediately offered to take care of this for me. It is not often you find...

It is impossible for me to imagine how the owner could do this better. The room, the furnishings, the service are all superb. Even problems were handled pleasantly. I could not recommend this motel more highly. Dersevedly Travellers Choice.

Genuinely warm and caring welcome from the owner. Helpful with giving us driving directions. Well appointed room that provided the most comfortable motel / hotel bed I have ever slept in. Double glazing meant no traffic noise. Unlimited wifi was great, as was being given a complimentary newspaper to take with us on departure. I can unconditionally recommend this motel.
