We stayed for 2 nights in March and found Catelli's to be very clean, quiet and close to the main area for restaurants and shopping and just a short walk to the lake. Perfect. Our room was clean with a comfortable bed, TV and free WiFi. Helpful information from the owner regarding places to see and how to get there... More

This is the place to stay. Terry was a wonderful host and loves the place he lives in. He shared a whole host of activities we could do in a short afternoon and we found them well within our driving ability. Our room and the location to town was ideal. Clean, quiet and beautifully decorated this motel offers so much.... More

Made a booking a week before leaving and got a room which exactly fitted our requirements. Clean, quiet, roomy, plenty of cooking utensils and a very happy, obliging host. ( Only met Terry....he must have had Kris hidden away). My only minor gripe, which I meant to mention to the Boss before we left, was the toilet paper was soooooo... More

We had a gathering at Catelli's to bring our Auckland and Wellington teams together for 3 days. Terry and Chris are outstanding hosts from the moment we made enquiries through to the departure. They stood out through the quote process as we investigated about 8 possible venues. The conference room is custom made and one of the best I have... More

Enjoyed this motel especially because of friendly, cheerful & helpful owner. Older motels but very clean & pleasant. Clean crisp comfortable beds.... MOST IMPORTANT. No traffic noise. Good to have efficient internet connection too. Will certainly choose this place again next time

We were here one night, booked last minute on the drive down and got the last room. Lovely people and great service, with great tips for where to eat, what to see and do. The room was clean and had a great shower. There was even a plunger and real coffee in the room.

Spouse and self stayed here for 2 x nights and found everything very good. Pleasant check-in, even though we arrived early. Nice, comfortable unit with sufficient space for us. The shower was ‘different’ though once accustomed to the control being on a wall with the shower-head fixed to a metal pole, all was well with water emerging just the same... More

We had passed through Taupo several times previously, but had never stayed, so we knew the location of this property would suit us, but its facilities, and the warm welcome we received from the hosts were a very pleasant surprise. Units are well equipped and maintained, and self catering is easy as the town centre is only a short distance... More

I don't often review accommodations, but the service we received here compelled me to submit. The owners were extraordinarily friendly. They helped us settle in quickly and addressed all our questions about the area. The room itself was nice and the spa tub exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Catelli's.
