Argent is owned and operated by Graeme Hunt who has an extensive history in the hospitality industry, spanning more than 30 years in regions around the country. He has recently taken over Argent Motor Lodge with his focus and passion to provide a clean and comfortable 'home away from home' for visitors to the Waikato region.
Graeme has several passions outside of hospitality, including farming, business, sports, horse racing and breeding, and community affairs. The Argent is within close proximity to the rugby and cricket sports stadiums, the race track, airport, city centre and is directly adjacent to the Waikato Hospital, offering an unrivalled location for any visitors to the Waikato region.
Argent Motor Lodge in Hamilton is not your typical motel. Our location means that in any one day, we can host international guests, here to see our beautiful country, or a family who has a loved one in the Waikato hospital.
This is not by accident. Our distinctive character is that Argent is 100% tailored to be a 'home away from home' whether you are just popping through, or staying for a while.
With a strong background in hospitality, and grassroots 'hard work' mentality from previous occupations, at Argent Motor Lodge, we strive every day for EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE, and adaptability toward our guests' individual situations. We live our values of empathy, care, and comfort to offer consideration and understanding.
We consider ourselves exceptionally privileged to be a part of some of our guests' toughest and greatest moments.
We look forward to you staying with us and showing you that good old fashioned hospitality does still exist.
