Returning to work after a holiday is never pleasant so it helps when you show up at the Argent to Claire and Richards freindly faces. I can't fault the Argent. It is like staying in a top hotel but you have personal service, a great room, comfy bed, breakfast in the morning and your own kitchen facility. What more could...

This Motor Lodge is a clear win in the area thanks to the hosts who are warm, friendly and very helpful. The cleanliness, condition of the building and enthusiasm of the hosts make it feel brand new despite being three years old. It is located slightly out of town, so is more suitable if you have a car.

My Partner and I decided to spend two nights at the Argent Motor Lodge before catching a flight back to Melbourne from Auckland. With the drive time to Auckland Airport minimal, our preference was to forgo staying in Auckland completely. After two weeks of travelling, the beds were the most comfortable we found through the upper North Island. There was...

I would highly recommend this place if you like cleanliness, quiet and comfy stay a compulsory very friendly and lovely owners. Everything in the rooms look like brand new because their motto is if you pay the same price as people who came after the next day of opening why you should get lesser quality...Rooms come with eco friendly stuff...

Richard and Clare were our final hosts on a long two week trip through New Zealand, and they did not disappoint. From the welcoming check in, to helping us with our bags to our spacious and well appointed room, to the suggestions for dinner on New Years Day and calling ahead to ensure we could find a great breakfast before...

The owners of the Argent Motor lodge have created the perfect accommodation option. This lodge is hotel standard with every detail considered and perfected. We were a bridal party of 6 and had the hairdresser, florist and photographer all on site, everyone was made welcome and the owners were so helpful and considerate of our needs. I can't speak highly...

I am so glad I stumbled across this Lodge. As ive stayed here a few times, I can consistently rely on the personal service, the spacious room and if you don't absolutely LOVE the beds they provide there is something seriously wrong with you.

Totally surprised by the quality of the hotel. The rooms were generous in size and probably the cleanest I ever stayed at. The owners were extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed two nights at the Argent Motor lodge and the reception by Clare was extremely friendly. She gave us tips on what to see and what not to see, that we appreciated very much. She did read our special requests made on booking.com and accomodated them. The room was spacious and the double windows isolated us nicely from the...
