My wife and I have recently stayed in a Studio room at the Argent Motor Lodge.
By the time we opened the door if felt exactly like home. It's easy to tell that Richard and Clare (who own the place) put a lot of personal care on the decoration of the rooms. We felt as if we were stepping in an extension of their own home. Everything was clean and just beautiful. For instance, the bedroom was quite big, with a well equipped kitchen attached. We were also positively impressed by the bathroom, which is pretty big and nicely designed.
The lodge is just a few minutes drive from downtown, the supermarket and from the Hamilton Gardens. The drive is very charming from the lodge to any of these places -- during daylight you will likely see the beautiful river and green yards.
Last but not least, both Richard and Claire are great people. They have promptly assisted us with many questions typical of first-time visitors to the area. In the likely event of returning to New Zealand we would definitely stay there again.
