As spouse and self had stayed here in previous year and found it very good, we tried again. Unable to find it on B.C this time we settled for the Acapulco – next door. Surprise on checking in that the two motels have recently merged management with us having been allocated a room at Cattelis (Now Acapulco – Catteli Wing)... More

We were a little confused as the office was shut down. Turns out the motel next door we had to check in. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a room that had a private outdoor/indoor spa which took a while to fill as its quite deep but great to soak in after a long day. Only a few... More

A good place where you can stay. Clean rooms, friendly people and close proximity to the lake front and good food joints. We had a one bedroom suite and there were two single beds in the living with a small kitchenette and a separate room with a double bed. I see no reason why someone should not stay here. But... More

We booked last minute and got a great deal on a room with a spabath. Nice and quiet location. Safe parking. Was travelling with my 7 year old son and had washing to do which was free of charge :) Could have spent longer there and will definitely stay there again.

Me and my boyfriend showed up late last night, just before midnight after a long trip from auckland we were so tired and needed to sleep. We didn't have a booking and the amazing and kind receptionist gave us a room for a really great price. We were so happy and thankful to find catelli's and we will be returning... More

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 :-)
