I love this motel! It's spotlessly clean and super comfortable. Great for me for business when I work at the Waikato hospital. I also stay here for pleasure. Grahame is always friendly and gives such a lovely welcome- feels like home. Great kitchen, beautiful bathroom and the beds are extra comfy. Modern and sleek- I love this place!

As on a previous visit, our room was comfortable and spotless as well as looking good. I managed to leave a pair of trousers behind and they were sent to me at no charge for which I am truly grateful.

This is a small but very nice hotel in Hamilton. Excellent welcome from the front desk and an amazingly large room are definite highlights. A modern hotel with a great shower.. Perfect directions to the restaurant section in Hamilton were very helpful! A perfect stay!

This is probably the most modern motel in Hamilton. I have stayed here often for business and am always impressed with the service and cleanliness. Its a quick drive to the city and is close to the Hamilton Lake for walking.

We stayed here for one night as a stopover while driving from Auckland to Rotorua. Even through we arrived very late around 11PM, the manager stayed up late to give us our keys and get settled in. The room was comfortable and not noisy at all, even though it was fairly close to the road, and free Wi-Fi was available....

We stayed at the Argent Motel for one night. Everything was great starting with the very warm and genuine welcome from Graeme. Our room was large and comfortable. A small kitchenette had basic requirements including a microwave oven. The quality plunger coffee, fresh milk and tasty shortbread biscuits were appreciated after a long day of travelling. The bathroom was modern...

Needed a place to crash after a looong flight to Auckland. We drove another hour south to get closer to the next days activities. Found this motor lodge and couldn't have been happier. Large clean rooms with comfortable beds and friendly staff.

Very nice rooms. The room we booked was actually a lot larger than I had expected for the price. Very friendly staff, nice location, free wi-fi, decent price!

Spent just one night, and found this lodge to be comfortable and excellent value for money. Graeme, the manager, was so helpful and informative. We used the meal delivery service for dinner and breakfast, and it worked perfectly for us. What impressed us was the superb noise insulation; we had fellow guests below and on either side of us, but...
