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

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

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

We stayed for one night here and had room 12. The room was spacious and clean. We even got coffee, tea and milk provided so we could help ourselves. The staff was very friendly and helpful at all time. Furthermore the location was quite handy as it is not far away from the city center. The possibility to do laundry... More
