Argent Motor Lodge in Hamilton among finalists

Argent Motor Lodge in Hamilton is among the finalists for the AA Traveller Supreme Host of the Year.

Argent Motor Lodge has been selected by a panel of judges as a finalist for the AA Traveller Supreme Host Of The Year award, which recognises moteliers that provide guests with exceptional customer service.

“Customers are at the fore front of our business, without them we are nothing,” says Clare Gallagher, co-owner of Argent Motor Lodge.

“We are really excited to be in the top three in the country. Regardless of the final outcome we are proud of what we have achieved here at Argent Motor Lodge,” says Clare.

The judging panel was made up of representatives from the AA and AA Traveller, Qualmark, MANZ and Inside Tourism.

“The fact that two Hamilton hotels are nominated is great for the Waikato. Our region has a lot to offer, so it’s great to see it being recognised,” says Clare.

This news comes off the back of Argent Motor Lodge recent 4 star plus ranking from Qualmark. Qualmark is New Zealand tourism’s official mark of quality. Qualmark works with a core set of criteria specifically designed to deliver an equitable and consistent result and is internationally recognised and trusted.

Argent Motor Lodge has also just been ranked in the top 5 Travellers' Choice exceptional service award from Trip Advisor.

Argent Motor Lodge’s superior rooms are very spacious and fitted with full hushglass to ensure warmth and a quiet night’s sleep every time.

Serviced daily, the accommodation at Argent Motor Lodge is complemented with features and plenty of extras to ensure that your stay provides optimal comfort and the perfect visitor experience. “We know how we would like to be treated, anything less for our guests isn’t good enough,” says Clare.

Argent Motor Lodge is the perfect place to base yourself during your Waikato stay. Whether it be business or pleasure, Argent Motor Lodge will cater to all your wants and needs. In particular Argent Motor Lodge is the closest motel to Waikato Hospital and is only a short distance away from Braemar Hospital.
