Great place to base yourself if you need to be at the Waikato Hospital but also great access to city, lake and riverside. Clean. Double glazing kept our any noise. Lovely hosts. Great kitchen facilities.

This is a perfect stay when doing business in Hamilton. The place is exceptionally clean. The owners are helpful and accommodating to one's needs. I found it quiet although it is on a main road. As it is not that far from the airport its location is handy if you travel by air.
Ordering food that is delivered to the room is just one of the comforts for a person wanting to eat in the relaxed comfort of one's room.
Nothing seems to be impossible with the help from the friendly owners.
I will be back.

Room Tip: I have had room number 7 twice now and am satisfied with it.

Checked in here for one night. Reception was extremely friendly, helpful and chatty. The motor lodge was located a short drive into town and you would require a car to stay here. Was on a main road and easy to find. We were very close to the hospital though.

Stayed in a downstairs room. The room was new and clean. The bed was comfy and large. I really liked the bathroom and thought it was modern and well equipped.

The car park was quite crowded and small and at times there was only the one free car park when we returned from going out (which was lucky for us). Found there was quite a bit of noise from other people slamming doors and walking past our room on the way to check-out early in the morning (not good if you want to sleep in).

Overall a nice stay. Would visit again.

Clean, modern with owners you want to bottle and distribute. We were only there for 1 night visiting a sick relative at Waikato Hospital, nothing was too much for Clare and we were given great instructions on where to park and eat in the City. They had great tea in the room too (it's sometimes the little things). Thanks for a great stay!.

We had 2 wonderful nights at the Argent. Hosts Richard and Clare were amazing, so helpful and friendly. Truly special people. The rooms are the best we have stayed in across NZ, AMAZING beds and so quiet. Can't wait to come back.

Hey Deb! THANK YOU for such an amazing review of your stay here with us at Argent. It was great to have you with us and to meet you beautiful son. Our sleepyhead elegance beds have been such a great hit with guests that we have had over 9 separate guests buy them for their own home! To us, this speaks volumes, because afterall - that is what it is all about. Thank you for staying with us Deb - we would love to see you again. Take care, Richard and Clare

When touring in February arrived late following loss of case from car boot to be welcomed by "are you the couple who have lost their case"! Fortunately from info in the case the finder had telephoned the Lodge and what followed was great sympatheitic support in retrieving it. This helpful attitude was evident in all they offered and did. The room was comfortable, clean, well equipped - all you could wish for at a high standard. Some traffic noise but not enough to disturb our sleep.

Hello NandV1F - thank you for such a wonderful review. We were so happy to have you arrive and be able to tell you that we knew the location of your lost suitcase (and that it was safe and sound!). It was a pleasure to have had you with us and to know that you enjoyed your time at our beautiful motel means a lot to us. Take care, Clare and Richard

When everyone if offering the same thing, service becomes that little bit more important. That's what inspired me to jump online and write this review.

Our family recently stayed at the Argent with Clare and Richard hosting us for a period of 5 days. Right away, you could tell that they really cared about us.
From the phone call to organise our rooms, to the free hugs on offer.
We were overwhelmed with the news a family member was rushed to Waikato hospital and we're from Wellington so didn't know what to expect. We needed somewhere urgently.

Clare and Richard really looked after us during a stressful time for our family. They were sensitive to our needs and always welcomed us with a warm smile, bringing you that little touch of happiness in all that they did for us. We almost felt like they were part of our family.

I would recommend staying here and if ever we had the chance to travel up to Hamilton again, I would stay here. They make everything so easy.

Thank you for looking after my family. You're such good, genuine. kind hearted people and I wish you both all the best.

Dear Lorelena. Thank you for your amazing review of the stay of your family here at Argent Motor Lodge. It was our pleasure to have been able to provide that little touch of 'home away from home'. When we opened Argent, which is the closest motel to Waikato Hospital, we knew that our guests would not always be travellers or corporate guests - but that was one of the reasons we chose Argent and is why we take as much care and effort as we can to ensure that our guests feel valued and cared for. Lorelena, your family was so lovely to have to stay - thank you again for choosing us. We would love to see you all again sometime - perhaps just for a weekend away :) Take care. Richard and Clare.
