My wife an I spent a night here in early May 2014. We were totally impressed from the professional and warm welcome while speaking on the phone to make the reservation right through to the incredibly comfortable bed and sound-tight windows which made sleeping truly DREAMLIKE.

The hotel is CLEAN, MODERN, EFFICIENT, SPACIOUS, and WARM!!! The bedside lamps, activated by touch were incredibly romantic. Though we didn't use them, both the bedroom and the living room had very nice, large flat-screen televisions with SKY channels. In both the studio and one-bedroom units there is a stove, a fridge, and a sink. The kitchenettes are supplied with high-end cutlery and cooking utensils.

The fittings and features are incredibly luxurious, including a large tub and separate walk-in shower in the spa-sized bathroom. The water pressure was amazing, and the temperature was easily adjustable. There was a complimentary curling iron. Thick, eqyptian cotton towels and wash cloths. There were two kinds of soap bars, organic wonderful smelling lotion, shampoo, and shower gel. Complimentary bath salts were an unexpected luxury.

In the bedroom there was ample space for hanging clothes, an ironing board, and an iron. The king-size bed was AWESOME. A very efficient modern heat pump made it easy to adjust the temperature of the rooms rapidly with both heat and A/C functions.

The hostess was extremely helpful in pointing us to wonderful nearby restaurants for dinner and breakfast. There is a small grocery within walking distance and you are literally meters from the hospital. Despite the proximity to all this hustle and bustle, the double-glazed windows and insulated walls keep the sounds outside and the quiet room was peaceful and felt very private.

We were visiting the Temple for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on our trip to Hamilton and this was just a 10 minute drive from the hotel.

Room Tip: The one bedroom was extremely spacious. My wife said "This is way nicer than my college apartm...

A warm and welcoming environment, service that is above and beyond, sparkling clean and comfortable rooms, everything you could want while on the road. Highly recommend a delivery meal from Scoff while there.

Room Tip: if you can't be bothered heading out for food, get a delivery meal from Scoff. You will not be...

We were welcomed here on the 2nd leg of our honeymoon and the host was extremely friendly and gave us a little gift to congratulate us.... The room is immaculate ... We can honestly say we haven't been to a cleaner, more well presented motel. It also has exceptional fittings and luxuries that you would not expect for the price! It's also close the town centre and walking distance to parks... Hamilton Gardens is well worth a visit!! Would be hard to top a place like this!

Nicely appointed room with spacious bathroom and hot plate in the kitchenette. Only a short drive to the main street, with a mini supermarket walking distance away if you need supplies for a simple breakfast, snacks etc.

Argent Motor Lodge has very modern and well designed rooms with good quality furnishings. Our room was spacious, very clean and comfortable, with a large bed. The bathroom and shower were larger and better quality than is normally found in a New Zealand motel.

The hosts were very friendly and helpful.

One of the best New Zealand motel experiences we have had.

Thank you to Clare for her warm welcome. My king bed room was spacious, stylish and very comfortable. I can say that the photos on the website are true to what you will find at Argent Motor Lodge, but they don't tell you about the warmth of the owners, nor the little touches that make you feel special. I have recommended Argent to family, friends and colleagues and shall be back to stay again.

We stayed for one night in a king bed room. The room was clean and well equipped with a nice king bed. The room was a bit noisy but we slept well nevertheless. The staff was very friendly. We found parking to be a bit difficult. All in all it was a good stay and we would stay again.
