We stayed for one night with our 3 year old son. The room was clean and comfortable. The room was also very warm which is very important when staying in Taupo. The staff were incredible. They let us store a large number of gear while we attended an event. They were very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely return.

Recently stayed here and would have to say it was one of the best motels we have stayed at. The room was extremely clean and every item you needed was there, will be recommending this motel to all our friends and have no hesitation on staying here again.

We stayed here one night on our way back to Auckland. Joining us on our travels was our 4 month old labrador puppy so we needed to stay in a pet friendly motel, The Catellis was great. Dogs are very welcome. The units that people staying with pets are allocated are ideal. Through the patio door you go out on... More

We were 3 adults staying with our dog and baby. It was a good price for all of us - cheaper or comparable to other places that offer accommodation for dogs. Portacot was in our room ready for us to set up upon arrival. Heatpump was ok but felt it could have been hotter. The place was nice and clean... More

Great personnel, nice unit, quiet, well equipped kitchen, real coffee too! Spa bath wonderful. Fab cafe down same road. Good proximity to lake and town. Sis and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay, hopefully longer next time. Highly recommend :-)

Just the nicest people. Easy walking distance to restaurant and shopping strips. Clean, comfortable room. Good value for money. Shower was a little awkward since there was a curtain on two sides that made it hard to keep water in, but that wasn't a big deal.

Husband and I stayed two nights at Catelli's. Check in was quick and the friendly, young lady at Reception was very helpful. Our room was clean, very comfortable albeit somewhat dated. Our shower did tend to flood the bathroom and you could could see how the motel had unsuccessfully tried to rectify this problem by drilling a hole in the... More

we really loved our one night stay here. The room was absolutely spotless and fully kitted out with proper coffee! the bed was comfy and shower was perfect after a long dusty trudge across tongariro. The guys at reception were really helpful and great to talk to. They were really nice people and they looked after our bags when we... More
