Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came to Hamilton for our daughters hospital appointment and decided to stay at Argent Motor Lodge because it is right next to the hospital just a short walk. On arrival we had such a warm and friendly welcome, the host was very helpful. The rooms are beautiful, modern and spotless with Sky tv even the movie channels, most places we stayed at never has the movie channels so that was nice. Shops are only a one minute walk up the street. The staff are tops, best customer service we have come across in a long time, every staff member are warm and welcoming. We will definately come back and stay here at Argent Motor Lodge.

We stayed just one night , would definitely go back and stay longer. Lovely welcome by Diana and great advice on a restaurant for dinner. Our room was spotlessly clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The heat pump and hot water bottle kept us warm. Shower pressure was fabulous. The Argent Motor Lodge is right next to Waikato Hospital and is close to the city centre so a taxi into town for dinner isn’t expensive. Busy road but traffic noise not a problem. Highly recommend a stay here.

Friendly, helpful staff greeted me on arrival and showed me to my room. Room was very clean and had basic cooking facilities, tea/coffee supplies and a TV with MySky (someone had even recorded a few recent movies on it!). Bathroom was well-appointed, with lovely fluffy towels and a separate dark-coloured face cloth for washing off makeup. Toiletry inclusions were of a good quality. The bed was less firm than I usually prefer but I had a peaceful, quiet night's sleep. Definitely a place I'd choose again next time I'm in Kirikiriroa.

We selected Argent Motor Lodge based on Trip Advisor ranking/reviews and we were not disappointed. We initially booked for just one night, but extended our stay to two nights. Room was spacious and spotlessly clean, lovely linen and excellent shower with plenty of water. Hosts were helpful, welcoming and happy to provide suggestions for places to eat etc. The only downside is location; the area is not exactly inviting, but it's only a short walk (2.5km) to the centre of "town" and restaurants etc.

Everything was perfect - would absolutely stay again next time I’m in town. Also worth noting, if you book direct on their website you get breakfast included free, and it was so great - a huge platter of fruit, cereal, bread, yoghurt etc. it gets delivered in the evening so you don’t get woken up in the morning! A wonderful touch. Friendly staff, very welcoming. Thank you!

Hi Belinda, It is awesome to read that you made the most of your time with us, by booking direct so that you could receive two complimentary continental breakfasts during your stay at the Argent. We like to make sure that our guests get the most out of our breakfasts so we always make sure they are more than substantial - to satisfy your tummy and your taste buds. We are pleased to know that you found them to be as such :) Thank you very much for your lovely review!! Kind regards, The Argent Team

My 5yo son and I did a school holiday road trip and picked the Argent Motor Lodge because it was handy to the Hamilton Lake Domain and playground. The location did not disappoint. The room (we were upstairs in Room 14) was lovely, new, sparkling clean and had everything we needed for the two days we were there. Comfortable bed. There was a little traffic noise from the road but it didn't interfere with a great night's sleep. Would definitely stay again but would make sure to request an upstairs room. A friend stayed in a downstairs room at the same time we were there and said the sound of running water was evident whenever the people in the upstairs room used the bathroom.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights recently due to op at Waikato Hospital, which is a short walk from our accommodation. Our room was delightfully big clean and well appointed and quiet despite the proximity to the main road - and nothing was too much trouble. The front office staff were helpful showing us to the room and made sure we knew how everything worked, and Graham was on hand to help where needed. We would definitely rebook should the need arise. I loved sitting outside in the patio area relaxing in the outdoor couches provided with my cup of tea!

owners were very polite and offered me a late checkout and had heat pump on to make sure room was warm on arrival. Room is spacious, very clean, extra little touches with shortbread cookies. plenty off street parking. Would stay here again next time in Hamilton.

From a last minute booking due to a family member in hospital Graeme went out of his way to accommodate us, making up roller beds at the last minute to accommodate our family. The facilities were very clean & tidy and the staff were also helpful and friendly. I would recommend Argent to anyone that needs to be in close proximity to the hospital or even those just passing through. Thank you Graeme to you and your team much appreciated

Me and my dad enjoyed our stay here, the room was beautiful and had a warm atmosphere. The bed was very comfy for my father and myself, so we fell asleep instantly after a long day at the hospital.
It is the perfect location to the hospital, only a drives way if your wanting to park up there or even better there is a walkway that took me 7 minutes to reach by foot right nextdoor to the motel.
Room service is excellent for they would ask if we wanted anything extra but we were happy neverless with what we had and they are a excellent team.
The best personal experience we have had was the lovely receptionist (s) who greeted us in a down to earth manner, something we love.

Hi there! We would suggest a One Bedroom Apartment as this would give you LOADS. With a separate bedroom (king bed) and either a queen or single in the lounge, we can also provide a porta-cot free of charge. These apartments have HUGE bathrooms with a walkin shower and a soaking tub. The fully equipped kitchen, dining area and the two tv's make it even more comfy. We would love to have you to stay!
